African Adventure in more ways than one!!!

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Namibia & South Africa between 25-Sep-2009 and 18-Oct-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We planned our trip a year and a half ahead of our travel date, which allowed us to book all the accommodation that we wanted to stay in at the places we wanted to visit. Maruska is fantastically knowledgeable and very friendly and always tried to match our wishes with the places that she knew would suit us. This proved very much the case with KTC. We were sad that Maruska had moved to New Zealand, by the time we returned, however, we had the pleasure of meeting Chris McIntyre and Tracy Lederer who were also very kind and helpful on our return.

Prior to our departure in addition to Chris' books and the brochure, the literature and the organization of the vouchers and pictures of the places we were staying at, were excellent. We often spent time at airports spotting EA travel tags!!!
We also met other travellers who were equally happy with their EA trip.

We had the most wonderful trip, which surpassed all our expectations. We would definitely recommend Expert Africa to anyone wishing to travel to Africa, particularly for making it such a personally tailored experience. We certainly will be using EA on our next trip!

Just to mention as well we had a very comfortable stay at the Brigadoon in Swakopmund run by a lovely called Margaret .

Feedback response

Maruska is still working full-time for Expert Africa - and has started our first overseas office, in New Zealand.
