"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia and 2 other countries between 24 Sep 2022 and 11 Oct 2022
"A very enjoyable holiday.

The only disappointment was the game viewing at Little Vumbura which was below exceptions, however the camp itself was great." Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zambia safari

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 23 Sep 2022 and 2 Oct 2022
"Very much enjoyed the two camps in Zambia run by Remote Africa, but we were disappointed with Vundu camp and Mana Pools, which was somewhere that I had wanted to go for sometime.

Could not fault Expert Africa who we have travelled with many times and keep coming back to as they are excellent at all the logistics and we never have had a problem.
We never have to worry that we will be stranded on an air strip somewhere!" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 5 on a Zambia safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 20 Aug 2022 and 4 Sep 2022
"Wonderful. As in so many cases, our holiday was planned some time ago, and looking at the itinerary again in the run-up to our departure, we wondered if we should perhaps have booked to visit fewer camps and stay at each one for a bit longer.

In the end (given the time we had available) we really loved the structure and scheduling of the trip and it was particularly special to be able to visit all the Remote Africa camps. The walking at Chikoko, Big Lagoon and Mwaleshi was totally immersive and engrossing, allowing us to see and hear things we never would have done from a vehicle, and when paired with the full on game driving at Old Mondoro, it made for a fantastic holiday.

We found we especially liked being able to walk from camp to camp - and if visiting again, would definitely put in an advance request to do so between Mwaleshi and Takwela, which by good fortune happened to be possible on this occasion without us having pre-planned it. And if Remote Africa were ever to think about opening a third bush camp in North Luangwa, we can only imagine how lovely it would be to do a walking circuit between the camps in that area.

Very many thanks to Claire for putting together such an amazing trip and also for all her good advice on flight options, in terms of both getting to and getting about Zambia." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"My July 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 10 Jul 2022 and 24 Jul 2022
"As for all of our previous visits to Africa with you, we had an amazing time thanks to your knowledge of the options you could lay before us and your understanding of what we were looking for.

Although much delayed by Covid and changed by the demise of a business we had been particularly keen to walk with, you helped us to refine our plans and eventually delivered a wonderful, life affirming experience full of excitement and interest."

I visited Zambia between 8 Jul 2022 and 23 Jul 2022
"Excellent trip, nice mix of camps. Nice pre and post hotel in Lusaka. Tours Africa very good also. Logistics worked like clockwork.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: Nothing to say, everything was great. Thanks especially to Maruska for all the rework and her patience during the Covid period. We got there in the end and we're very appreciative." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 12 on a Zambia safari

"My Jul 2022 trip"

I visited Zambia between 4 Jul 2022 and 15 Jul 2022
"We love working with Maruska and Expert Africa! This is our 4th trip she has helped us with and she knows exactly what will be a good fit for us. She went above and beyond to make this trip as wonderful as it was. After 3 years of waiting and rebooking due to covid we can't thank Maruska enough for all of her efforts and patience. Can't wait to book our next safari with Maruska and the Expert Africa team.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service: Nothing needs improving! We've been thrilled with every trip you have helped us with. Hopefully you can add Uganda to your services so we can plan a Rwanda + Uganda gorilla trekking safari." Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"I have become a big fan of walking safaris !"

I visited Zambia between 6 Jul 2021 and 16 Jul 2021
"I think that this was one of my very best holidays I ever had.

Walking safari was something new to me (actually safari as a whole was new to me) and it has surpassed all my expectations. I am convinced that this is the very best way to visit the bush, much much better than driving.

You do see less wildlife, especially the predators seem difficult to meet on a walk, but you learn so much more and each encounter is just so much more emotional.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Not really. I just want to emphasize how important my relationship with Lucy (at Expert Africa) was in the preparation. She has just been fantastic, solving all problems which were being created by constant changes to my flights because of the airlines.

Had it not been for Lucy being so helpful, I may have given up travelling this year and postponed my trip to 2022 or 2023." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari
