"Definitely the holiday of a lifetime"

I visited Zanzibar and 1 other country between 23 Jul 2022 and 6 Aug 2022
"We had the most amazing time, definitely the holiday of a lifetime. We feel incredibly lucky that we were able to go on this trip, and would love to plan another adventure in the future with Expert Africa.

We felt that we got the best of everything, from hotels, food and service to individual guides and practically private planes, we were treated like royalty and will have treasured memories for a long time to come. We haven’t been able to stop telling people about our experience.

We are so pleased that we went with the Red Colobus Monkey suggested itinerary as it was just the most wonderful holiday. Thank you.

We thought it was the most amazing holiday." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zanzibar holiday

"My Jul 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 22 Jul 2022 and 1 Aug 2022
"I think I made a mistake and gave my overall experience comment at the very beginning of the survey.

Bottom line: excellent guide, David, who made each game drive special.

Asilia lodges absolutely top notch, especially because of the staff and the overall atmosphere.

The trip was unforgettable, probably the best I have ever done." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 5 on a Tanzania safari

"My Jun 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 21 Jun 2022 and 6 Jul 2022
"Simply wonderful from the moment we arrived in Tanzania.

Never been to Africa before and tents are not our usual accommodation - but this was an exceptional environment and we felt privileged to be so close to the animals we came to see 24/7." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"We could not hope for a better honeymoon"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 21 Jun 2022 and 5 Jul 2022
"This was the most amazing trip of our entire life (so far at least). It made us feel special from start to finish.

We almost teared up as we left some of the places. We can't thank Olivia and Jessica enough for helping us create such unforgettable memories.

We could not hope for a better honeymoon.

We really liked the wildlife survey but it could have been more comprehensive." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 2 Mar 2022 and 31 Mar 2022

Thanks, Maruska.

"My Feb 2022 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 1 Feb 2022 and 1 Mar 2022
"Our trip was quite the odyssey. A long itinerary with lots of moving parts.

I was surprised and impressed by Expert Africa who took care of the hiccups and responded quite promptly to take care of the unforeseen circumstances that pop up on a trip like this.

I wish I could book EA for all of my trips, easily the best agency I have ever worked with.

"My Jan 2022 trip"

I visited Kenya and 1 other country between 25 Jan 2022 and 9 Feb 2022
"Brilliant.

The trip had been postponed once because of Covid so I'd waited a long time and was in danger of being disappointed but, really, it was much better than I'd hoped or even imagined.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No suggestions." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"My Oct 2021 trip"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 21 Oct 2021 and 4 Nov 2021
"We were very happy with our trip as a whole and the help we got from Lyndsey.

Of course there are always some details. We didn't receive our pre-travel package in time, probably because of Brexit. When we returned we saw that there was only a guide of Zanzibar and not of Tanzania in the package. The covid rules were even easier than you told us. There is a list of countries that should do an extra antigene test when arriving. UK is on that list, the Netherlands not. We found out ourselves but we think in this case Expert Africa is just a bit too UK-minded because we were told that we probably should do that test when arriving. The list is on the Tanzanian government website.

Fisherman Travel did a good job but one driver had a bottle of water for us the other didn't. When arriving on Zanzibar from Dar the driver was too late. So I had to fight off dozens of "helpful" taxi drivers, some became a bit too intrusive so i had to act angry and aggressive to get rid of them. After ten minutes our driver arrived. No big deal but sometimes details are important.

But as we said, this is our second journey with Expert, and we are still very happy with the service and the overall experience." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari
