Great trip to Namibia

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 22-Aug-2015 and 6-Sep-2015 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

It was a great trip.

It was very easy to do it with a pregnant lady and a small child, and he had a great time as well.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Expert Africa's service is great as always. There are a few small things you could improve regarding travelling with (small) children. For example: after arrival in Windhoek we might have (in hindsight) preferred a lodge where we could have dinner and with the option for an early checkin. Also, the vehicle we used was a bit on the small side (everything fit, but only just).

Also, on the feedback form it would be great if you could easily switch between lodges by clicking on the name in the left side menu. Now you can only go back and forth using the 'Previous' and 'Continue' buttons, which is not so efficient if you want to add an extra comment to the first lodge.

Botswana and Zimbabwe, June 2013

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 31-May-2013 and 22-Jun-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

It was a brilliant trip.

The only thing we might have changed on hindsight was that we wouldn't have ended in Camp Hwange, but started there. We saw significantly more in Botswana, so the change to Hwange required some adjustment on our part.

Fantastic honeymoon

Absolutely fantastic trip!

From start to finish everything went smooth and was great. Our best trip so far (out of seven trips to Africa).

No idea. It's already so close to perfection.

More wildlife than ever

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 3-Sep-2010 and 18-Sep-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We stayed in some great places and saw more wildlife than ever before (as much leopards as on our five previous trips to Africa combined).

We met a lot of nice people, some of who we will try to stay in contact with. We will definitely return to Zambia someday. A very diverse trip!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Perhaps you should market yourself more in the rest of Europe (outside the UK). During our trip we only met British people who booked with Expert Africa. People from other countries (e.g. the Netherlands) would not immediately think of Expert Africa when looking for a travel agent, while you're definitely the best we've had so far (after many Dutch disappointments).
