Third time with Expert Africa, still happy

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & Zambia between 27-Jul-2019 and 25-Aug-2019 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Except for the very bad experience with Bidvest Car Hire (hired through Expert Africa), once again, we had very good experiences using Expert Africa for assisting with planning and booking the trip. We got highly qualified, fast and efficient help from Tracy Lederer from Expert Africa putting together a good trip to this part of Africa, where we have traveled may times, although were were late out booking.

We look forward to use Expert Africa again (our travel agent for the Southern parts of Africa).

Perfect trip to Kgalagadi in Kalahari

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 21-Nov-2015 and 4-Dec-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This is the second time we use Expert Africa for bookings etc. As last time, everything went perfect.

We got qualifyed and kind help from the staff. At arrival in Africa, everything went according to plans. You can get full help from Expert Africa. However, as experienced in travelling in Africa, we prepared the route on our own. Afterwards, we got good input from Expert Africa and make changes accordingly. This worked fine.

We will use Expert Africa again in the future.

We will use Expert Africa again

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 17-Jul-2009 and 15-Aug-2009 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We were wery satisfied with the service from Gwynneth and expert africa and had a fantastic tour to Namibia. We will return to Africa again and if possible use Expert Africa again.

There were only to mistakes a) we did not get the 4wd car we asked for and b) we did not get a familyroom at Kulala Winderness Camp as indicated in our confirmation invoice due to a booking mistake. However, everything else went fine during a one month long trip staying many different places.
