Travel reviews by Mrs & Mr K from Florida

Overall pretty good experience

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Zambia & Zimbabwe between 18-Jun-2019 and 6-Jul-2019 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


In planning this big trip for five people, I enjoyed working with Maruska, who was patient, responsive and knowledgeable over the course of a year. The time zone difference was a minor inconvenience for communication.

We loved Anabezi, really enjoyed Somalisa Acacia, were disappointed by Lion Camp, and appalled by Splash Camp. We paid a lot of money for four nights at Splash and felt it was largely a waste of money, except for seeing painted dog pups.

While much information was supplied, some of it was unclear or inaccurate and I found myself doing research instead of asking Expert Africa again (i.e. WiFi at each camp; what kind of plugs were needed; what are the current baggage requirements). I would have liked more precision about logistics (i.e. there are multiple vehicles involved in some transfers). I also made myself a map of camps and airstrips that would be a nice touch from you.

The little gift of luggage tag and passport holder was thoughtful but not very well designed!
