"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."

"Our August 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 19 Aug 2019 and 9 Sep 2019
"Very well organised - all arrangements/transfers worked well. No delays.

Thank you very much!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Something we were not aware of prior to our trip was that not all animals can be seen in all locations. This became very apparent when we were in Old Mondoro/Chiawa - there were no giraffes,. Whilst there should be some personal responsibility, someone who had booked a trip of a lifetime and had a checklist of animals this omission may have caused disappointment - perhaps this could be highlighted when trips are planned."

"My Aug 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia between 15 Aug 2019 and 28 Aug 2019
"Excellent trip with fantastic wildlife sightings at all camps. All the camps we stayed at were small, which afforded a very personal experience and the sole focus was on maximising opportunities to see wildlife in its natural setting.

The standard of guiding was consistently high.

Food was great and the camp cooks were innovative in the way they catered for vegetarians (it was not all mushroom risotto!)

All staff were very happy to interact with guests and share their own experiences and knowledge of the bush and of life in modern Zambia." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Third time with Expert Africa, still happy"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 27 Jul 2019 and 25 Aug 2019
"Except for the very bad experience with Bidvest Car Hire (hired through Expert Africa), once again, we had very good experiences using Expert Africa for assisting with planning and booking the trip. We got highly qualified, fast and efficient help from Tracy Lederer from Expert Africa putting together a good trip to this part of Africa, where we have traveled may times, although were were late out booking.

We look forward to use Expert Africa again (our travel agent for the Southern parts of Africa)." Read full review: 29 nights in Africa; 21 on a Namibia trip

"Africa trip, July 2019"

I visited Zambia between 23 Jul 2019 and 12 Aug 2019
"Our trip was amazing. We had such a great time. The safari experience was incredible, better than we could have ever expected. It was so fabulous to be in such remote areas, totally looked after at the camps - which was so relaxing and such a luxury - and then to have such thrilling experiences out on the drives. And to have lovely interactions with the staff at our camps and to learn about their customs, their families, their lives. Plus it was a great way for our family to spend time together and for us all to have a good time.

We also enjoyed our visits to Cape Town and Jo'Burg. We had private guides for a day in both towns, which we like to do wherever we travel - and our guides really gave us tremendous insight into the history and lives of people in these towns and throughout South Africa."

"Brilliant, exceptional, fantastic."

I visited Zambia between 18 Jul 2019 and 4 Aug 2019
"A safari has always been on our bucket list and we are so glad we chose Zambia and with the help of Expert Africa we couldn't have asked for more - the whole experience was exceptional. We always said we did not want to feel like we had had a day out at Chester Zoo / Whipsnade Safari park - --and we can categorically state that we did not! Everything was perfect, and exceeded our expectations.


The initial call to Expert Africa made us feel like a customer dealing with a company that cared about what we wanted to achieve from the holiday. All the lodges we stayed at were superb, it was luxury in the bush. The game viewing was second to none, not only all the "big animal" but also some very interesting smaller ones (elephant shrew, honey badgers, porcupines, mongoose).


A perfect holiday that we will talk about for a very long time, thank you." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 14 on a Zambia safari

"Trip of a lifetime"

I visited Kenya and 4 other countries between 24 Jun 2019 and 7 Aug 2019
"We have been to Africa before with Expert Africa and we knew what we wanted to see this time.

We then spent a long time with Richard Trillo and his team discussing options and then left it to him to put together an extended trip to hopefully tick all the boxes on our wish list.

ALL BOXES TICKED, this was a fantastic journey through 5 African countries, we have seen and experienced so much, so a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Expert Africa for arranging this for us.

No, just carry on doing what you're doing now - it would be very hard to improve what you're already doing so well." Read full review: 44 nights in Africa; 17 on a Kenya safari
