Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs G from Dartmouth
Total number of trips
Lodges stayed in
Zam Zim and RSA 2019
Zambia and 2 other countries between 25 Aug 2019 and 12 Sep 2019
Less game and far less variety than we expected. Dissappointed to find night drives not allowed in Zimbabwe. Expert Africa should provide more details of the flight operators for the bush flights and there needs to be tighter communication when informing guests and checking their documents and itineraries."

"A charming, slightly rustic bushcamp"
"An island of bush in the grassy plains."
"A very new, large camp for the luxury market"
Safari Club SA
"Comfortable overnight accommodation"
First trip to Zambia
Zambia between 22 Aug 2018 and 3 Sep 2018
Luangwa River Camp
"Luangwa River Camp review"
Knowing this might have altered the number of nights we chose here. Camp was very comfortable and the staff pleasant and helpful. Well sighted with excellent accommodation.
Relief to find that excellent mosquito nets were everywhere in our Zambia trip.
nteresting for us to see new sub-species of Zebra and Giraffe."
"Kakuli Bushcamp review"
The best guides in the trip so far!
Saw lions from all 3 prides in the area."
"Chiawa Camp review"
In one hour we saw a troop of baboons, a small herd of elephant, bush buck, water buck, impala, warthogs and hippo from our verandha!
Most enjoyable canoe trip. Not at all strenuous and very relaxing."
Old Mondoro Bushcamp
"Old Mondoro Bushcamp review"
Very few visitors from other camps seen on drives.
Our first experience with a walking safari."
We experienced far more than expected.
Tanzania and 1 other country between 28 Aug 2014 and 7 Sep 2014
Unfortunately the flight from Seronera to kilamanjaro entailed a change of planes in Arusha. Our voucher did not tell us this, nor mentioned the carrier and no one seemed to know when the onward flight was expected to leave. As usual in Africa, all worked out well but worrying time wondering if we and our luggage would be reunited and arrive in Kilamanjaro on the same flight!
Nairobi airport is a disaster and I would suggest you warn future clients (even people like us who fixed this aspect of their travel themselves) to avoid Nairobi."
"We only went there to sleep for a few hours"
"Basic but good value and excellent position"
"Less exciting than Olikira"
A great time to visit Botswana
Botswana between 17 Oct 2010 and 27 Oct 2010
Before our trip we poorly understood that rains in Botswana were out of sync with the floods coming from Angola several months later.
The dry season was a great time to see the game, concentrated around the remaining floods in the delta and in Linyanti swamps.
Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:
Everything was superb and we will recommend Botswana and Expert Africa to all or friends. We plan to return next year."
