"Fantastic first safari!"

I visited Zambia between 27 Sep 2019 and 10 Oct 2019
"I had an indescribably excellent experience for my first safari!

I had done some research prior to contacting Expert Africa and Lucy Copson was awesome - listened to what my expectations were and made wonderful suggestions for my itinerary! She was never annoyed when I asked for modifications to the itinerary and when my return flight was postponed a day, she knew about it immediately, found some options for me and booked my last day at Luangwa River Camp. I wouldn't have done it any other way.

The transfers were seamless, everyone was professional and pleasant and my trip was worry free. I selected Robin Pope since they don't charge a single supplement but I can't imagine staying with a better outfit.

I highly recommend the services of Expert Africa and Robin Pope safaris! Thanks, Lucy!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Definitely tell people doing the mobile walking safaris to bring clothing that is army green/brown/grey. Otherwise you stick out like a sore thumb in the bush! The guide and host did have extra shirts they kindly loaned to me." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"Victoria Falls and Botswana September 2019"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 21 Sep 2019 and 2 Oct 2019
"We enjoyed our couple of days at Victoria falls, even though there was not much water in the Falls. It was a relaxing start to our trip

The Okavango Delta was amazing, even after so little rain in Botswana and Angola. We would certainly like to return when there is more water in the Delta.

We have visited several African countries and been on safari many times, so the focus on this trip was really to see the Delta, a unique ecosystem. Tracy really listened to what we wanted and after much discussion we felt we had the trip we wanted. We were delighted with the offer of a helicopter flight from Pelo camp back to Maun. We saw rhino from the air one of the few animals we had missed on safari.

An amazing trip, thank you Tracy." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 6 on a Botswana safari

"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 18 Sep 2019 and 6 Oct 2019
"We had a full-on holiday in South Africa and Zambia with 9 flights and 7 different locations. We had two safari experiences that complemented each other perfectly.

Tongabezi as a base to see the Victoria Falls was great and a perfect way to end our holiday.

Everything went as planned without a hitch of any kind - a real tribute to professional organisation. Many thanks!" Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 6 on a Zambia safari

"Wonderful trip!"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 16 Sep 2019 and 2 Oct 2019
"Our whole trip from Livingston to South Luangwa National Park to Likoma island was fantastic and we want to thank Expert Africa and Amanda Bond for helping us plan our trip.

We especially appreciated Amanda‘s feedback and valued her recommendations. We’ve been to Africa many times, but it is extremely valuable to get the perspective of someone who is familiar with areas, such as South Luangwa and Lake Malawi, that we have never been to. We have used expert Africa services before and would not hesitate to use them again. Thanks, Amanda." Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"A really positive experience"

I visited Zambia and 3 other countries between 5 Sep 2019 and 24 Sep 2019
"Lucy helped arrange our trip. She was wonderful. I travel a lot, and this is the first time I have used someone to plan a trip. It was so helpful, and Lucy was a pleasure to work with. Overall, it exceeded my expectations, and I learned more about my expectations and where I needed to be clearer in the future. What I really appreciated about Lucy, is I messed up a flight (spelled a name wrong on an airline ticket). I got no where in fixing it and Lucy jumped in and got it rectified.

I did learn that when flying with South African Airline and the smaller airlines that they change flight schedules and cancel flights frequently, so don't book multiple legs of a trip on one ticket - unless they are the same day." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zambia safari

"My Aug 2019 trip"

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 22 Aug 2019 and 6 Sep 2019
"Perhaps not quite up to expectations because game sightings not as intense, prolific or frequent as anticipated. This may have been due to what we understood to be a two year drought.

Having flown economy, we were glad of the opportunity to relax for 2 nights at Victoria Falls before starting the safari. Our afternoon arrival at our first camp coincided with that of another UK couple who had flown from the UK straight to the camp and, unlike us, were too tired to go straight out on an evening game drive."
