"Our Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia and 2 other countries between 5 Oct 2023 and 2 Nov 2023
"In terms of game viewing experience, quality of accommodations, ease of connecting between camps and overall enjoyment this is the best safari experience we’ve had.

Expert Africa took care of all the details once we landed in Africa, and when we had a flight delay between camps due to weather, our flight schedule and accommodation for an extra night in camp were organized for us without a hitch.

The quality of every camp was just as we expected. The quality of guiding was the highest we’ve experienced. And even after a month of travel we never tired of the delicious and varied menu options.

Expert Africa took care of every detail and Wilderness (plus Green Safaris for one camp) came through in every camp.

The other companies that provided ground and air transportation between countries or camp-to-camp were also efficient and convenient. Excellent trip!" Read full review: 28 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"My Aug 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia and 3 other countries between 27 Aug 2023 and 22 Sep 2023
"Every camp that we visited held Expert Africa in high regard which made us proud to be clients.

All went well but it would have been helpful to have the "hard copies" of Precision Air as there were glitches on their end. They had no record of us going on after Lusaka (right city??). We made it. And... All's well that ends well but we were put-on the wrong plane from the Serengeti to Kilimanjaro and they sent us to Arusha (along with another couple).

Precision Air then put us on another flight to Kilimanjaro but we missed most of our time at the lodge in Kilimanjaro before going on to Nairobi. We both decided that we would have skipped the Nairobi jaunt and gone from another city. Just FYI" Read full review: 26 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari

"My Jul 2023 trip"

I visited Zambia between 3 Jul 2023 and 11 Jul 2023
"We can’t say enough good things about our trip. You could say it was the trip of a lifetime but we loved it so much we’re already working on our return.

While Zambia itself: the people, the area, and the wildlife obviously is incredible, the trip wouldn’t have been the experience it was without Lucy [of Expert Africa]. She helped us decide on where to stay and did the hard work figuring out how to get us from place to place. Everything was seamless.

The only difficulties with the whole trip were the parts we planned ourselves. I was definitely wishing I’d worked with Lucy for the South Africa portion!

As soon as we decide in dates for our return to Zambia, I will be in touch with Lucy.

I would like to be able to give some constructive criticism, but I just think ever portion of this experience was incredible, thank you." Read full review: 8 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari

"My Jun 2023 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 8 Jun 2023 and 28 Jun 2023
"Everything that Maruska organized for us went brilliantly well.

Her help and conversations that led to the ultimate itinerary were right on our wishes - she listened and delivered the ultimately memorable experience of a lifetime; one we will be talking about forever.

All our camps and lodges were brilliant - and Kae Kae absolutely made our daily experience wonderful.

No, I think that if anything is asked of Maruska she can deliver!" Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari
