Expert Africa is first rate!

Zanzibar between 28 Jun 2008 and 7 Jul 2008

Trip rating: Excellent
"Our trip was nearly flawless! It was great to have a vacation where all the details were arranged for us and all transports occurred on schedule.

Claire Scott was extremely patient, accepting changes to the duration of our trip and answering all questions without a hint of annoyance. We were totally delighted with the choice of hotels and her very good advice."

Shooting Star Lodge

Shooting Star Lodge

"Shooting Star makes paradise truly paradise!"

6 nights Arrived 29 Jun 2008
"Everything about Shooting Star was superb. The staff was delightful and very accommodating, seeing to every detail, including fresh hibiscus blossoms on our pillows each night and tea/coffee delivered to our doorstep early each morning (along with biscuits that we enjoyed when we were quick enough to get to them before the crows!) They even arranged a totally memorable first anniversary celebration for our daughter and son-in-law -- a fabulous seafood feast and bonfire on the beach!

Our accommodations were attractive and spacious. We had plenty of hot water for showers as long as we remembered to turn on the water heater. We particularly enjoyed hanging out in the lounge area, the excellent beverages and good-natured staff at the bar, and the courteous and friendly Masaai.

We've already recommended Shooting Star to our friends!"

Zanzibar Palace Hotel

Zanzibar Palace Hotel

"Zanzibar Palace Hotel is highly recommended"

3 nights Arrived 5 Jul 2008
"We very much enjoyed our three nights stay at the Zanzibar Palace Hotel. Breakfast was elaborate and delicious, and we all agreed that dinner at the hotel was by far the best food we had in Stone Town.

We appreciated the location which was an easy walk to shops, restaurants and other attractions.

The climb to the top floor was a bit much for mom and dad but the room was lovely when we got there! We really appreciated the willingness of the staff to carry our luggage up and down!"
