"My Nov 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia between 14 Nov 2019 and 25 Nov 2019
"Very well organised and enjoyable trip.
Game was slightly thin at both Musukese because of rains and Liuwa because lack of rain but every effort was made to find what there was with some great sightings.
It was an adventurous out of the ordinary experience." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"Liuwa to Luangwa"

I visited Zambia between 3 Jun 2013 and 15 Jun 2013
"An amazing trip to see one of the last wildlife wildernesses. We feel extremely privileged to have been able to spend time at Liuwa in the company of Jason, Robin, Kanga and the team. The difficulties of the journey to get there are immediately forgotten on arrival; we really hope RPS will restart these trips when the new lodge in the park is built; maybe someone will also construct an airstrip on land firm enough to take planes big enough to get guests and supplies in. The current one can only take the tiny research plane but is otherwise used as a running track as the soil is so soft!

South Luangwa was excellent as usual with some fantastic sightings including a leopard taking her three (!) tiny cubs out for the first time.

All ground arrangements went smoothly as usual though, for us, we found Tours Africa a little too attentive – we really don’t need somebody to shepherd us to the lounge once we’ve passed passport control. And we’re perfectly capable of paying our own departure tax." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"My May 2012 trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 27 May 2012 and 9 Jun 2012
"I had been counting the hours until I left for my trip. It was exactly what I needed. I returned home re-engergized and reinvigorated.

This was my fifth trip with Expert Africa, and every trip went perfectly. I have a lot of trust and confidence in Expert Africa and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a trip to Africa.

"Superb safari in Liuwa Plains"

I visited Zambia between 9 May 2012 and 16 May 2012
"Liuwa is a sensational destination - remote, peaceful and with outstanding birdlife and large mammals. That is is not a 'Big Five' park (you won't see rhino, leopard or elephant, and as yet only a handful of buffalo are being reintroduced), it's a wonderful place to see vast numbers of wildebeest and zebra, astonishingly diverse bird species and predators in action.

Robin Pope and his team provide an outstanding service, and the overall experience is quite unique." Read full review: 7 nights in Africa; 6 on a Zambia safari
