Wonderful trip to South Africa

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 8-Apr-2018 and 19-Apr-2018 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Another fabulous holiday organised by Expert Africa! Everything was well organised and just right- a great mix of places and accommodation. We are already planning the next trip, and will spend longer on the Port Elizabeth end of the garden route where the scenery is truly spectacular.

My Oct 2016 trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 10-Oct-2016 and 27-Oct-2016 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

A wonderful visit to a fascinating country. It was good to deal with someone who knew the camps, and I know Tracy made a particular effort to get us into Sossus Dune lodge which was much appreciated. The website is very appealing and I particularly like the use of google maps to show more about the locations. I was surprised by the lack of people everywhere and missed having any real interaction with local people. Overall the trip was excellent.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

It would be very helpful to have average driving times between lodges or mileage at and early stage - we probably woudn't have gone so far every other day if we had known how long it would take. It might be worth advising people who eat fish but not meat that it's better to stick to vegetarian - when we were given fish it wasn't great.
