Fantastic first safari!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 27-Sep-2019 and 10-Oct-2019 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:


I had an indescribably excellent experience for my first safari!

I had done some research prior to contacting Expert Africa and Lucy Copson was awesome - listened to what my expectations were and made wonderful suggestions for my itinerary! She was never annoyed when I asked for modifications to the itinerary and when my return flight was postponed a day, she knew about it immediately, found some options for me and booked my last day at Luangwa River Camp. I wouldn't have done it any other way.

The transfers were seamless, everyone was professional and pleasant and my trip was worry free. I selected Robin Pope since they don't charge a single supplement but I can't imagine staying with a better outfit.

I highly recommend the services of Expert Africa and Robin Pope safaris! Thanks, Lucy!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Definitely tell people doing the mobile walking safaris to bring clothing that is army green/brown/grey. Otherwise you stick out like a sore thumb in the bush! The guide and host did have extra shirts they kindly loaned to me.
