My Oct 2023 trip
Zambia between 11 Oct 2023 and 25 Oct 2023
Having only been to Botswana before, but also knowing the kind of camps I enjoy, Chris and Megan Green were able to consult with me regarding where and what I wanted to see in Zambia. They were bang-on in their suggestions. (I absolutely loved the walking camps - you guys are rock stars). I know, the suggestion for team member shows Chris McIntyre, but a special mention has to please go out to Megan Green who put this whole trip together, and dealt with all my questions and concerns.
Expert Africa, are indeed every indicator of their name. They are just simply the experts. I trust in every aspect of the process......the knowledge they possess of all the areas is unmatched. A very special thank you to Chris McIntyre, and Megan Green to put together this first trip to Zambia - with mind for future travels.
I absolutely loved the feeling of raw, real, authentic, rugged Zambia.
It was everything I'd hoped for and more."

My Nov 2021 trip
Botswana between 26 Nov 2021 and 7 Dec 2021
Canada had left me with few options getting home. Even though Expert Africa had not booked my international flights, Megan worked with my boyfriend at home to try to navigate my changed travel. Wifi isn't an option at Kwando properties, but Expert Africa was able to send me messages at each camp. And I was invited to use the computer at Kwara should I need it. A big, big thank you to all who helped me get home. Although still in quarantine, I am reflecting on this most amazing trip with absolutely no regrets.
This is my second trip to Botswana, and second time with Kwando camps. I feel they are a perfect fit for me. Very nice, yet unpretentious. Focus is on wildlife experiences, and locations are second to none. The model of tracker and guide is not the norm, and is exactly what I am after.

First time....but not the last
Botswana between 26 Nov 2019 and 5 Dec 2019
Having 3 very distinct geographical regions, starting with the desert, was intentional (to help us absorb a 9 hr time difference), and then to experience the most of Botswana.
Loved each area and camp for very different reasons, but have to give the special mention to Lebala Camp and their staff. This was supposed to be a "once in a lifetime trip" for a milestone birthday........but plans to return to Botswana started before coming home.
Many thanks to Expert Africa for a wonderful introduction."
