African Safari

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 22-Aug-2011 and 13-Sep-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our trip as a whole was fantastic.

It completely lived up to our expectations and we most certainly recommend Expert Africa to our friends.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Since Expert Africa had no suggestions for Springbok & Namaqualand accommodation, we made our own bookings. We highly recommend Naries Namaqualand located about 30 km east of Springbok, especially the mountain suites. This was equivalent to or greater in luxury than Xaus.

As a critique, the Expert Africa staff knew we were planning to visit Kruger Park, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Augrabies Falls and Namaqualand. We think it would have been appropriate for someone to suggest we purchase or at least investigate the feasibility of a SANParks Wild Card as this can save money on daily conservation fees within the parks.
