An amazing adventure!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 9-Feb-2019 and 20-Feb-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Overall, we had the most incredible experience during the Emerald Season in Zambia. This area, which surely feels remote and wild in the dry season, felt like an even more special adventure because of how inaccessible the area comes due to flooding.

Each drive and boat ride was an adventure, and we loved the atmosphere and unpredictability of the rainy days. Watching the mighty Luangwa river rise, and getting rained out of one camp proved to be an adventure, and our broken down boat will be a night to remember forever! We had marvellous sightings of lions and leopards and enjoyed the lush, green background provided.

While the number of sightings may not be as great as visitors expect during the dry season, the stunning background should make up for this to all photographers. Another phenomenal trip arranged by Expert Africa!

Namibia Self Drive Trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 27-Feb-2017 and 11-Mar-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was by far the most amazing, awe-inspiring trip of our lives.

Expert Africa & Maruska did SUCH a wonderful job helping us arrange this journey and answer questions along the way. Namibia is a beautiful, diverse, visually spectacular place that will stay with us forever.

We really wouldn't change a thing about this trip except we wish we had a 4-4 vehicle due to some roads we would have loved to explore in Etosha but had to go around. Thank you for recommending Turnstone Tours for the Sandwich Harbor tour- this was a highlight of our trip because of how interesting & knowledgable our guides were.

Self driving through Etosha was an incredible experience and we saw so much wildlife everywhere.

Our trip went by without any hiccups thanks to your excellent planning and we will definitely use Expert Africa again for our next booking.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Strongly recommend 4-4 vehicles in Namibia during the rainy season. Keep recommending Turnstone Tours - they were wonderful. We loved Naankuse Lodge as a special way to start our trip with the cheetah walk.
