Back to Zambia afte a long absence

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 8-Oct-2016 and 24-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had a really wonderful trip and the Expert Africa arrangements slotted in perfectly with the segment that we arranged on our own, the renting of a house on the outskirts of Lusaka.

What was especially impressive was the way Expert Africa arranged our various transfers to and from the airports. Our arrival at Lusaka where apparently there are often delays was lightened by the person who met us insisting that we join the queue for diplomats in the hope of hastening the the process.

A minor observation on our transfer from the Royal Livingstone to the the Livingstone airport. It may be an idea if Expert Africa used the hotel mini-buses rather than Wild Africa.

The Commissionaire was quite distressed when he could not contact Wild Africa's office by phone; he finally made contact with the driver by radio. There was no delay and we arrived at the airport in good time.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We really do think that you have a wonderful product and will not hesitate it to our friends.

We were particularly impressed with how wel the segment that we arranged, the hiring of a house in Lusaka, slotted in with the rest of the holiday arranged by Expert Africa.

We would like to thank Expert Africa for sending us a copy of Bradt's Guide of Zambia which we enormously enjoyed reading.

Finally our especial thanks to Lucy Copson who was always at hand to help and who we had the pleasure of meeting at Kiango.
