Travel reviews by Mr I & Mrs W - Dorset


A great safari experience

On this trip, I visited Zimbabwe between 15-Nov-2016 and 25-Nov-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip was well organised and met our expectations. Claire has arranged a number of trips for us over the years and this was to the usual high standard.

We arranged our own flights and the ground arrangements worked well with this. It did appear that the transfer from the Hide back to the airport may have cut it a bit fine, however it worked out well in the end.

The only other observation I would make is that this time of year (mid November) does seem to be the time when travel trade reps are on familiarisation trips and this can change the dynamic in the lodges. Something perhaps that customers need to be aware of.

Fantastic Tanzania

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 12-Dec-2009 and 25-Dec-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was the holiday of a lifetime, everything ran smoothly and the organisation of the whole trip was very good.

We are quite widely travelled and rarely return to the same place but we would certainly return to Tanzania and Zanzibar with Expert Africa.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Everything went so smoothly I really can't add anything at all.
