"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia and 4 other countries between 19 Sep 2019 and 12 Oct 2019
"We were very impressed with the Local Agents everywhere#

We had 11 flights. We travelled to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. We travelled into and out of Jo'Burg in South Africa 3 x times

We had countless Border crossings and 5 pages were completely used up in on new (thankfully) passports----more than 5 pages would have been used up, had the Immigration Staff everywhere, been less considerate and using up pages, rather than constantly stamping new pages!

Every Local Agent arrived early to meet us and took all the hassle out of all the numerous border crossings, particularly on the Chobe River on the boat, where you have to pass through Nambia and Botswana on entering and leaving!

In the end the trip is as good as the Local Agents, and the Local Agents that Expert Africa used were suberb, efficient and charming

"Malawi-Zambia"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 14 Sep 2019 and 2 Oct 2019
"The trip arranged by Expert Africa book-ended an eight day safari in the South Luangwa Valley, arranged separately.

Expert Africa knitted the two sets of arrangements together perfectly and pretty seamlessly. Overall, the trip had many highlights (just a few low-lights at the beginning) and we would happily use EA again." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 4 on a Zambia safari

"My Sep 2019 trip"

I visited Zambia between 10 Sep 2019 and 22 Sep 2019
"We had a wonderful holiday with no problems or nasty surprises. We'll never forget a holiday where we saw 15 individual leopards in 10 days and 8 in a day!

Before the trip we were a liitle concerned about the short transit time in Lusaka between the arrival of our afternoon Emirates flight and our Proflight booking to Mfuwe. We were assured this was not a problem and this proved true.From the time of landing, Immigration and Visa issue, Luggage collection, and check in for the next flight were completed in just 30 minutes.

We were very pleased with the knowledge on birds of guides at all the camps. This meant there was always something to look at.

A couple of points of our personal views not necessarily relevant to Expert Africa:

We rather wish we had spent one night in Lusaka, for no other reason than we don't feel we've visited the country in the true sense.

In a future trip we would look for an alternative to the Emirates routing via Dubai.The timing of this allows little chance of a proper sleep in a transit time of over 17 hours from London to Lusaka. Via J'burg is better in this respect and we would also consider more direct routes via Addis Ababa or Nairobi, which could include a stopover.

Nothing springs to mind. Every query was handled quickly and efficiently." Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari

"My Sep 2019 trip to Zambia"

I visited Zambia between 6 Sep 2019 and 20 Sep 2019
"Very pleasant and unforgettable holiday! From booking until arriving back home. We've had already the opportunity of visiting several countries in Africa, and this travel to Zambia was one of the most fantastic.

The chosen camps, their locations, the accommodations, the food and the activities in which we took part are/were great. Everything has gone very smoothly, as planned or above expectations. We had some very agreeable surprises that we will never forget. But, above all, it was the professionalism, the sympathy and the warmth of the people we've met.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Booking this travel with Expert Africa was a pleasure.

From the very beginning, the quality of the information obtained, the clarity of the documents, the rigor of the approach and all the support provided by Maruska were simply superb.

Doing better is not easy..." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 11 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

"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
