I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 1 Nov 2008 and 15 Nov 2008
"An amazing Tanzanian safari experience in Selous & Ruaha - better than we could possibly have hoped for. Zanzibar is overrated - would not return there." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 8 on a Tanzania safari

"Our first beach holiday in years"

I visited Zanzibar between 21 Oct 2008 and 31 Oct 2008
"Since we haven't had a beach holiday for a long time and was a little concerned whether we could cope with sitting on a beach reading etc, we have really enjoyed ourselves.

As usual with your company everything went like clockwork everything is sorted out so we just have to relax and enjoy ourselves that is one of the reasons why we keep using you please keep up the good work." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zanzibar holiday

"Retirement Holiday"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 18 Oct 2008 and 31 Oct 2008
"A holiday full of experiences - some good, some bad - but all memorable. The bad ones will become great 'dining out' stories." Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 7 on a Tanzania safari

"The Goodall's on Safari"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 18 Oct 2008 and 2 Nov 2008
"Were happy with all the arrangements which went like cloakwork, without exception, which in a country like Tanzania, can be no mean feat!

Were very pleased that we decided to drive across the Senegeti rather than fly. Although a long drive, we certainly had a great feel for the place and gives you a better idea of the different types of scenery.

I am usually fairly critical but could find no fault. It was certainly the most we have paid for a holiday and I would have been very disappointed if the arrangements had been poor.

Suggestions for improvement:

"A great holiday"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 13 Oct 2008 and 29 Oct 2008
"We look back on our holiday as a wonderful memory. It was certainly all we had hoped it would be, and felt that our wishes had been well understood and catered for.

Suggestions for improvement:

The only thing that springs to mind is to stress to clients the importance of having proper reef shoes for this kind of holiday. One doesn't appreciate how sticky the sea bottom is at low tide, and many people only have flip flops, which are disastrous.

Thank you for organising such a stress-free and enjoyable holiday!" Read full review: 16 nights in Africa; 9 on a Tanzania safari

"It was the most fabulous honeymoon ever!"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 11 Oct 2008 and 24 Oct 2008
"I don't think that you need to improve anything we were very pleased with our honeymoon, the first week safaris were so good that I cried when I got to Zanzibar as I wanted to go back to Sayari Camp!

You ensured that we had an unforgettable honeymoon, thank you for all your hard work, Joanne Ingle" Read full review: 13 nights in Africa; 6 on a Tanzania safari

"Si' s feedback"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 11 Oct 2008 and 29 Oct 2008
"I'm a terrible winge. Thea thought it was all fantastic & is now depressed. I got a couple of bluebottles off Echo which was educational. So did Andy which cheered me up, except mine wouldn't go down. Off Unguja it was like swimming through clouds of used condoms which were also a bit pricky, so I got spots on my spots. Elies gave me some anti histomine which calmed them down a bit. Also my guts gave out. Luckily everybody else was on honeymoon so mozzies were no problem. Up in Selous we copped some bad patches of tetse which came up very nicely & set off my jelly stings to perfection. Luckily these have all lasted quite well & Ive been able to show the girls in the office. By chance I read the blurb on Rufigi so we shot round Stone town pillaging the cash machines. A suitcase of Tshillings just about covered our bill at Rufigi but we were not prepared for Madze to be back in the 50s too & we just scraped by with a mottly mix of currencies. Richard was not happy. & neither was I. I hate paying real money. Not that Tshillings is real money. When I was a lad you could get a tusker for 3 bob, at Madze its 8124."

"Our Fabulous Holiday"

I visited Zambia and 1 other country between 6 Oct 2008 and 24 Oct 2008
"We book a fairly complex itinerary involving many flights, locations and activities. This involved being met at airports for transfers all of which went very smoothly thanks to the organisation and efficiency of Lucy and her colleagues at Expert Africa.

One of our activities included white water rafting at Victoria Falls and what a fantastic experience it was, the climb in and out of the gorge is difficult but well worth the effort. Thank you Expert Africa for arranging our fabulous holiday.

As our trip was faultless it is difficult to think of any comments." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"The whole thing was superb"

I visited Zanzibar and 1 other country between 27 Sep 2008 and 12 Oct 2008
"The whole thing was superb - we couldn't have wished for more.

Suggestions for improvement:

There is simply no room for improvement !

I should just add that although we were told that the Emerson Green hotel was not as good as it used to be, we went for dinner there on our last night and it was excellent, so perhaps it is picking up again. We even had live music into the bargain !" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zanzibar holiday

"A fabulous safari"

I visited Tanzania and 1 other country between 22 Sep 2008 and 7 Oct 2008
"The safari part of our trip was excellent. Pole Pole was a little disappointing - quality and too long at the resort. Expert Africa should not use Beyt al Chai until it is refurbished.

We are very impressed with Exprt Africa itself. All staff very helpful and concerned that we have an enjoyable holiday (which we did).

Information provided pre deprture very comprehensive and helpful. Terrific web-site which was one of the factors that convinced us to use EA. We really felt they knew what they were talking about." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 12 on a Tanzania safari
