A first visit to Africa

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 13-Sep-2008 and 26-Sep-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


All of the help we received from Expert Africa was of the highest standard and sent us on our trip with great confidence.

Just a couple of points. We did not realise how tiring the safari travel would be between camps especially to Tarangire and we feel that visitors should be strongly advised to stay there for 3 nights. Also on returning from Tarangire to go to Zanzibar we flew from Manyara to Arusha, with hindsight we feel it would have been better to have travelled by road to Arusha.

Finally, Fishermans tours were also excellent. We booked a tour to a spice farm and also atour around Stone town. Our Guide around Stone Town, Kassim, was excellent. Informative and helpful and of the same high standard of guides that we had received all the trip

Suggestions for improvement:

Could you please provide a map of area that we are to visit ?

This has been for us an excellent experience. A trip of a lifetime. Thank you all.
