My Sep 2017 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana, South Africa & Zimbabwe between 23-Sep-2017 and 7-Oct-2017 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Maruska and Expert Africa were terrific. Very knowledgeable and helpful.

After listening to my interests, she recommended camps which we felt covered good variety of environments and experiences. I think starting in Hwange and finishing in the Delta was ideal as our Hwange guide was very educational and the wildlife at Kwara particularly superb. If we ended at Hwange we would have felt 3 nights probably sufficient, though were lucky enough for my son to spot a leopard and see a pride of 14 lions in our last 24 hr.

It was also great to have all the arrangements and transportation taken care of.
