"Another wonderful holiday to my favourite safari destination in Africa.

Kafue and the Luangwa valley was an excellent combination due to the diversity of landscapes, animals and birds that it provided." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 13 on a Zambia safari

"Trip of a lifetime - but hopefully not!"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 23 Aug 2018 and 9 Sep 2018
"My husband and I, and our two sons (aged 16 and 18) took this vacation just before our 18 year old went to college, so we wanted to spend quality time together. This trip exceeded our expectations.

From the moment we got off the plane in Lusaka, and were met by a driver, to the moment we were dropped back at Victoria Falls airport on our last day, the trip exceeded our expectations.

With the number of connections, hotels, drivers, activities etc that we built in, we were expecting complications and disasters, but every single thing happened smoothly, exactly as we were told it would.
We can't thank Lucy enough!!

Given the overall trip, we would return to Mwaleshi and Tafika. We probably wouldn't return to Davisons Camp or to Victoria Falls.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Everything went really well. We were very happy.

Thank you so much for everything you did.

We can't recommend your services highly enough!" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zambia safari

"Aug 2018"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 22 Aug 2018 and 26 Aug 2018
"The camps we visited were great. But you could just as easily book them directly and frankly, I wish I had done.

We needed a transfer from the local airport to Mumbo Camp and for this were presented by EA with an invoice for about £600. I queried this and got a response fro EA that I found both patronising and condescending. It transpires that EA does not supply the transfers and knew very little about them. Apparently, it goes through a whole load of intermediaries who all seem to add a slice. You are much better going direct.

In the end I used a local taxi firm and did the transfers for about £100 from Andrew at Anake Taxi, Excellent firm, use them if you need a taxi in Malawi, we found him safe and so ignore the scare stories.

So the EA website is great but the level of support knowledge and expertise I found to be a long way below "expert" as I think I managed to do a better job myself.

I have been on many safaris over many years and used agencies before but found EA to be the least useful of any to date.

I will book with the camps directly in future or with a different agency." Read full review: 4 nights in Africa; 2 on a Zambia safari

"North and South Luangwa are my favourite parks in Africa, and I've been to a few. A ten-day break, with no access to email or news, felt like a month away from the messy world we live in." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"Excellent return trip to Zambia"

I visited Zambia between 5 Sep 2016 and 23 Sep 2016
"There was no-one to meet us at the airport when we arrived at Lusaka. We scoured the airport and found someone from Tours Africa but he said that they had not been asked to pick us up. After speaking to what seemed to be everyone in the Airport the Tours Africa rep came back and apologised and said it was entirely their fault and then took us to the hotel but we wasted over half an hour.

Tsetses were an issue, as we can both react badly to them. Much worse in South Luangwa than last time and we had one particularly bad Tsetse walk in North Luangwa. We were expecting them in Kafue - Musekese was better than expected, Busanga Plains much worse. All the camps were free of tsetses.

Disappointing that information on the Expert Africa website is inaccurate. Overall service from Expert Africa was very good, as usual. However......although the wallet is better than the old one, I still think it is daft to give people a wallet every time they travel - I won't use it again and it will join the other 2 wallets in my desk drawer. A shirt would give Expert Africa free advertising as well as being useful for the recipient (I've mentioned this before but it fell on deaf ears!).

I also think you should ask if people want a copy of Zambia before you sent it. When I got mine I thought it was a new edition but found it was identical, so it went straight to recycling." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 18 on a Zambia safari

"excellent return trip to Zambia"

I visited Zambia between 18 Sep 2015 and 2 Oct 2015
"It was our 7th visit and we loved it all.

Remote Africa Safaris has a fine combination of bushcamps, excellent and flexible guides, similar good food at all isolated camps and the constant attention from John & Carol Coppinger. Superb unpretentious safari. We walked for 11 out of 13 days , with good night drives at Tafika. Talking with other visitors, and our own experience over the years this remains The Top Spot for Luangwa.

Happy days!
