Best.Trip.Ever.

Zambia between 26 Aug 2018 and 14 Sep 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"Wow! Spectacular! We had a fantastic 3-week trip with Expert Africa to Botswana and Zambia. When we first had the idea of trying to go to Africa, not knowing where, when, or with which outfitter, Megan Green gave the best, most thorough response to our inquiries. The website was also wonderfully designed with succinct, user-friendly information. The timely correspondence of the staff and the website were huge plusses during our planning phase.

Everything about our itinerary was well designed, and we were never rushed. For example, the night in Jo-burg to rest and explore a bit before flying the next day to Maun to begin our safari was well enjoyed. The night in Livingstone between Botswana and Zambia was also well received and taken advantage of to rest. The camps were also laid out in a manner where it felt like every camp we went to was a little bit more luxurious than the prior one, so it kept feeling like we were spoiled over and over - all of the camps exceeded our expectations as well.

We had zero travel issues, everything ran seamlessly! One issue popped up where our itinerary said alcohol was included at one camp, and the camp staff upon check-in insisted that alcohol is never included there. We emailed Expert Africa and they sorted it out within two hours.

Our safety was never a concern, and the trip kept getting better and better! We highly recommend Expert Africa, and both Botswana and Zambia."

"Short stay at Avani Falls"

1 night Arrived 2 Sep 2018
"The hotel was so convenient to the falls! We loved that since we were only in Livingstone for a very short time. We could just pop in at our leisure! Breakfast buffet was plentiful and delicious! Very friendly staff."

Chongwe River Camp

Chongwe River Camp

"Chongwe River Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 3 Sep 2018
"We loved the location of this camp, right on the river! The tents were spacious and very well maintained. We loved the bathroom. We had so much activity right outside our tent and around camp! Elephants daily sweeping up "elephant biscuits" all over camp, poking their trunks around the tent was really fun! Listening to the sounds of hippos, leopards, lions, and hyenas at night was wonderful. Friendly camp staff always trying to surprise us!

We didn't get to fully connect with our guide but enjoyed most all of our activities!"

"Lovely Lion Camp"

3 nights Arrived 7 Sep 2018
"Amazing accommodations! Luxury in the bush! We loved our room and overall decor and location. Amazing place.


Management did make every effort to make our stay comfortable and accommodating - and that is much appreciated! There had been a fire in the staff quarters a couple of days before our stay and yet the staff continued to provide great service

We were less than impressed with the management's professionalism. On a couple of occasions, the manager yelled at a staff a member in front of the guests. It made me feel very uncomfortable. It seems there is some tension between the staff and management - and that is not something guests should be able to easily observe.

We felt our guide was a bit distracted and not very enthusiastic compared to other guides we had."

"Jackalberry treehouse"

3 nights Arrived 10 Sep 2018
"We loved the Jackalberry treehouse. What a cool experience! We opted to skip a drive in favor of staying back to watch the animals drink from our own watering hole one day! The caretaker was super attentive and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable.

We loved our guide.

This is very much a wild experience, which we very much appreciated! But less adventurous travelers should be aware of insects and animals in and around the treehouse."
