"My Oct 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 8 Oct 2022 and 25 Oct 2022
"Our whole trip went like clockwork.

We enjoyed all of the recommended accommodation and wouldn’t have made any changes to the itinerary.

Both Selous and Ruaha are remote and quiet parks to visit and point camps were small and exclusive. The short flights and transfers were all seamless.

We recommended Expert Africa to other guests that we met at Kichaka who had been unhappy with their own agent.

Good idea to give us business cards to hand out!" Read full review: 17 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 27 Sep 2022 and 16 Oct 2022
"Memorable in so many respects.

Quite often, we were the only people seeing the animals, and it felt incredibly intimate. So close. We could almost touch them.

Both drivers were excellent, enabling us to position ourselves and find the animals approaching us.

Every moment was an adventure.

Weird, how strangely comforting it was to have lions, rather than buffaloes roaming the Mara camp.

Fantastic to see so many babies in the flourishing conservancies.

We met other people, including a charming couple of American twins Paula and Sue who shared our view, that we were fortunate to have found you on the Internet." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 11 on a Kenya safari

"My Sep 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 26 Sep 2022 and 14 Oct 2022
"This was a return trip, and a fairly similar itinerary to 5 years ago.

Aided by Expert Africa again, we stuck to what we knew had worked. All the camps continued to be oustanding and the wildlife experience was once again wonderful yet completely different than last time.

We fell in love with Tanzania the first time, and we love it even more now.

Simply magical.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Absolutely not, its been amazing from the outset, and even through the Covid nightmare you managed to keep us up beat and informed.

The only sadness this trip was the relocation of Olakira away from the river which was enforced by local authorities apparently. A great shame because the game experience and game drives were decidely poorer for the extra driving and diversions away from some riverside areas that this relocation requires. Can't be helped and of course if we'd not been there in 2017, we'd have no comparison.

We were only disappointed by the quality of the wine offered with meals. It really was at best average.. We had been spoiled by having Stellenbosch wines in 2017! And we do appreciate that economies may be necessary after the Covid pandemic." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari

"A wonderful and memorable trip"

I visited Zanzibar and 2 other countries between 4 Sep 2022 and 17 Sep 2022
"I planned my trip two years ago, then COVID struck and I needed to defer.

I was returning to one camp, Namiri, now a lodge - all other destinations were new. The standard of guiding was excellent and I was thrilled by the number and quality of animal sightings. Spending time on Mnemba Island was a perfect and relaxing interlude before ending in Stone Town. Overall, the experience was remarkable, wonderful.

Some of the airstrip transfers were a tad chaotic, but my luggage and I arrived as planned on each occasion. The meet and greet at Kilimanjaro was great and made for a totally stress free experience.

Thank you Expert Africa, and Lyndsey, in particular." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zanzibar holiday

"Return to Tanzania for the 4th time"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 3 Sep 2022 and 22 Sep 2022
"We had waited so long for this holiday due to Covid postponements that we wondered if it would come up to expectations.

We need not have worried. As usual Expert Africa arrangements were spot on and we had a marvellous holiday.

Our joy at showing our daughters something that we treasured was the icing on the cake.

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 29 Aug 2022 and 13 Sep 2022
"The trip was fantastic- Expert Africa made it effortless for us! Jessica Plumb (contact at Expert Africa) was very knowledgeable and tailored the trip to our interests/budget. She was very responsive, answering all our questions and providing us with a detailed itinerary.

The safari lodges and accommodation were true to the description given by Expert Africa, and were consistently of high quality.

It was great to be able to enjoy the trip without having to think about internal flights and airport transfers, all of which was taken care of by Expert Africa.

Overall we had an incredible experience on our honeymoon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Expert Africa!" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari

"My Aug 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 2 other countries between 24 Aug 2022 and 12 Sep 2022
"Great trip.

But we should have just stayed in one Northern Serengeti camp as the two were so close. Ideally Sayara for 4-5 night, but with different staff. All guides were great." Read full review: 19 nights in Africa; 11 on a Tanzania safari
