I visited Zimbabwe and 1 other country between 26 Dec 2010 and 10 Jan 2011
"We booked this trip (unusually for us) at very short notice but EA was able to come up with an itinerary which totally matched our parameters and which worked out extremely well (including the potentially tricky issue of crossing the Zam/Zim border twi ce with different carriers on each side). We were very happy with the whole experience

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

As mentioned in feedback from previous trips we do think the website could be usefully updated more frequently. But we would congratulate you on the 2011 brochure which is a step up from the still very good 20010 version." Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 10 on a Zimbabwe safari

I visited Botswana and 1 other country between 20 Nov 2010 and 4 Dec 2010
"Just one dissatisfaction - not all of our car transport turned up on time, and indeed the first one did not turn up at all.

One major recommendation - go in November! It is supposedly low season, but we saw a huge amount and had a fantastic time, with the greatly added benefit of having the vehicles and often camp to ourselves in the vast majority of places.

We have never been on an organised tour holiday, so I was apprehensive that we would be herded around like pack animals and miss out on the unique experience you get when you travel individually. This was not the case. I was very happy with Expert Africa and would certainly use you again if we booked another luxury trip." Read full review: 14 nights in Africa; 8 on a Botswana safari

"Good africa!"

I visited Zimbabwe and 1 other country between 1 Oct 2010 and 16 Oct 2010
"We had never visited sub saharan africa before and had real concerns about safety especially taking the whole family in one group to celebrate my husbands 60th.

We can only summarise by saying it was fantastic and will be planning something again - this time they will all have to pay their own way though. The mix of freedom, planning and excitement made the experience unforgettable.

Chris and Claire were very helpful and knowledgeable and gave us great reassurance personally speaking to several of the party individually.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Make it clear in your advisory pamphlets that it is serious hot in October and make sure you do read all the emails customers send so all the details get included right at the beginning. The short time scales we set you were incredibly tight and the schedule you created was faultless - thank you" Read full review: 15 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zimbabwe safari

"We loved it"

I visited Zimbabwe between 28 Jun 2010 and 9 Jul 2010
"We had an amazing trip; we've been to Southern Africa many times before and this was one of the best trips we've made.

We took in some football and then fled the vuvuzelas (which we actually quite liked) for Botswana and Zimbabwe. Maruska was outstanding and as usual Chris knew his stuff!" Read full review: 11 nights in Africa; 8 on a Zimbabwe safari
