First trip to Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe and 1 other country between 28 Aug 2014 and 9 Sep 2014
We are starting to plan our next trip and Zimbabwe is at the forefront. The only point for Expert Africa is if they are routing people from Zimbabwe to Zambia by road at the bridge please take time out to see the Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwe side, especially at this time of year, we didn't and this was a slight disappointment."

My Sep 2011 trip
Tanzania and 3 other countries between 3 Sep 2011 and 18 Sep 2011
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Please really emphasis the damp and coldness of the mountains when going to Rwanda to see the gorillas, it is not so much as to what to wear when climbing but how to keep warm in the rooms as everything feels damp, also take a torch as the rooms can get dark as the generators are only on for certain times, can make reading difficult."

Two Golden Leopards
Zambia between 10 Sep 2009 and 22 Sep 2009
We thought last years trip to Botswana would be hard to beat but our trip this year to Zambia has exceeded all our expectations and we haven't stopped smiling since. We met some great people and everyone connected with all the camps were very helpful, knowledgeable and always smiling. Can't wait to go back.
Suggestions for improvements:
Only negative comment to make would be the pick up on the morning of our return flight to UK, having paid for B&B could not take part in breakfast as restaurant opens at 5.30am at Taj Hotel and the company used to transfer us to the airport also picked us up at this time, whereas we could had made use of the shuttle bus service of the hotel, therefore allowing us time to enjoy a breakfast before the flight home."

Best Holiday Ever
Botswana and 1 other country between 8 May 2008 and 21 May 2008
Our only problem now is how to follow this. It was a holiday of a lifetime and we are already trying to work out how to go back and challenge Expert Africa to find something better but we don't think they will."
This is a nice problem to have and it’s one that we’re pleased to face quite often: How to better a really amazing trip?
The answers different for every person, but we’d usually suggest that you resist the temptation to visit the same lodges again, whichever ones they are.
Then talk to us in detail about what you want, keep an open mind when listening to our suggestions, and try to book well ahead of time (11 months before you travel is ideal!).
Our aim will be to surpass your last trip – and we are pleased that we can often succeed!
