Holiday of a lifetime

On this trip, I visited Tanzania between 23-Jun-2019 and 6-Jul-2019 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Expert Africa put together the most wonderful holiday ever. We were lucky to have two weeks - so spent 8 days doing the classic northern circuit where to see the wild animals so close was just breathtaking.

The Asila guides - Fazo in particular - are worth their weight in gold to show you a real authentic experience and not a tick-box encounter with animals. We saw so much and learnt so much.

All the accommodation was very good and we particularly liked the more authentic canvas tent experience that Kati Kati gave us as we really felt on safari then. Don't just opt for the big lodges!

Tanzania is so beautiful and the wildlife sublime. I was born there and had never been back but was overwhelmed by the positivity and humour of the Tanzanians.

The holiday exceeded all my expectations as I really felt that we had had a more authentic genuine trip and seen so much. it was very nice to finish down in Selous by the lakes and chill out a bit more while still going on game drives and boat trips.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I think you are all brilliant and don't know how you could improve.

The booking of the flights is complicated and we really appreciated Clare's imput as it is so difficult to understand distances/ times etc.

I have recommended your company to many of my friends - and Fazo our guide who was amazing - so thank you for making this special trip so amazing.
