A great trip
Kenya between 23 Jun 2017 and 2 Jul 2017
I can't actually think of any way in which the trip could have gone off more smoothly.
We were very impressed with Southern Cross and the Eka hotel and the transfers went like a dream. All the managers and staff at both camps were superb. Nothing was too much trouble. As for the game, and particularly cat sightings. Wow! 2500 plus photos after initial editing says it all.
In conclusion, the highest praise I can give is that if we decide to do a similar trip we'll be contacting Richard and Expert Africa to organise it with every confidence!"

Being a bit of an animal enthusiast, I do think it is important to stress that certain species are unlikely to be seen. I was disappointed to be told that certain species were not found in the locality of the camps despite assuming from comments in the guide that they were around ie Roan, Sable.
Having said that, there was plenty of game, and for safari newcomers, more than enough species to keep them happy.
Suggestions for improvement:
We have had two excellent trips with your company in the last two years. Both were competitively priced, superbly organised, and delived more than was promised. Ellie is a gem who updated us at every opportunity and who provided me with specific information on the two camps that we visited as she had been to both herself. Her level of knowledge was far higher than that we have experienced from reps of other companies and,as we have now been on safari eight times, we are really impressed.
Your website is the best around for imparting information and I like the visitors comments and general organisation that it contains.
Could I suggest that you update your info about cameras in the travel book you issue. More info about digital cameras, suitability for getting batteries charged, size of memory cards, dangers of heat and dust would help a lot of first time safari travellers.
In general though, carry on with your excellent work."
