My Sep 2022 trip
Botswana between 9 Sep 2022 and 26 Sep 2022
We chose 4 mutually complementary but contrasting locations in the Okavango, Savuti and Chobe areas with the helpful suggestions from Lucy (our agent) and each camp certainly met our expectations both in terms of the accommodation/ food and the wildlife observations.
We were privileged to witness some exciting game episodes comparable or exceeding what we have previously experienced in eastern and southern Africa. The absolute highlight of the trip was the private mobile camp in Savuti which with Andrew Harkness provided a thrilling and memorable experience.
Once again, Expert Africa has been excellent in providing knowledgeable suggestions for the trip during our planning and efficiently booking our whole safari experience. Many thanks."

My Oct 2019 trip
Tanzania between 3 Oct 2019 and 17 Oct 2019
We have nothing but praise for Nomad and its staff; everyone was great and it is impossible to single out anyone in particular; without exception they were all extremely friendly and helpful.
The programme put together worked wonderfully- a great start at Machweo and a mid-holiday break at the luxurious Gibbs Farm in between some fabulous safari camps with variety at each of the locations of wildlife and scenery.
Everything worked like clockwork, with one exception. We were unfortunately misinformed about the flight departure from Lake Manyara airstrip meaning we wasted 2 hours hanging about at the airstrip, whilst we could have enjoyed a relaxing and full breakfast back at Gibbs Farm rather than the rushed early morning departure.
One thing we would have liked to see in all Nomad camps was a detailed large-scale map of the NP/NCA (such as produced by Survey of Tanzania, or a google earth print) so as to better understand where we had been!"
