"My Feb 2024 trip"

I visited Namibia and 1 other country between 10 Feb 2024 and 14 Mar 2024
"I have recommended Expert Africa and Tracy Lederer several times to travellers I met on this trip. The first part in Namibia at the Namib-Naukluft Park was even more rewarding than I expected. It was very hot, however, I had 6 clear nights and took advantage of them to do my astrophotography with some excellent results. Being allowed to enter the main park early at 4.30am was a huge bonus. After that I was a little sleep deprived, but it was worth it Both Sossus Dune Lodge and Sossusvlei Desert Lodge were excellent.

The two "cat" related lodges Okonjima Bush Camp and Cheetah View Lodge were interesting and worth visiting. I spent 6 days at Cheetah View Lodge, 3 days at both lodges would have been sufficient.

Olive Grove Guesthouse and Ilala Lodge were repeat visits and I enjoyed both.

The disappointment of the tour was the Pangolin Photo Tour. It should have been excellent but the combination of an inexperienced Photo Host and poor drivers at the Ker and Downey camps was not effective. I would recommend the Chobe River as a wildlife photography site, however, I would be less enthusiastic about Pangolin Tour Company unless you were assured of an experienced photo host. The two Ker and Downey camps were OK, however, I've stayed in better camps in the Moremi and Kalahari areas." Read full review: 33 nights in Africa; 19 on a Namibia trip

"My Dec 2023 trip"

I visited Kenya and 5 other countries between 18 Dec 2023 and 7 Jan 2024
"Overall our trip was excellent.

Looking back, perhaps the most wonderful thing was the feeling that someone was in control and we didn’t have to worry about anything.

It was wonderful. Thanks a lot!!!" Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 7 on a Kenya safari

"My Nov 2023 trip"

I visited Zimbabwe and 1 other country between 7 Nov 2023 and 19 Nov 2023
"I think my earlier comments [Ed: in the individual camp reviews] have captured the mood of our trip.

It was the most memorable time and the organisation from Expert Africa was super.

All connections were seamless with cars to meet planes, planes to meet helicopters and planes to meet planes.

The camps we stayed in were both wonderful and the trip more than matched our expectations" Read full review: 12 nights in Africa; 6 on a Zimbabwe safari

"My Nov 2023 trip"

I visited Zimbabwe between 2 Nov 2023 and 11 Nov 2023
"For us personally there was a bit of (healthy?) tension regarding this trip.

It was the exact same one we did 10 years ago, which had a very unfortunate start. However, the days that remained were memorable and worth repeating. So we did and were definately not disappointed.

The trip as a whole went very smoothly and brought us exactly what we hoped for. We've come to rely on Expert Africa for just these reasons and will be doing so in the future. In fact, even before ending this trip we started planning the next one. If that's not a vote of confidence, I don't know what is.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The service is impeccable, I can't think of any suggestions.

Regarding the trips; also pretty difficult. Maybe widen the range of countries you cater to?" Read full review: 9 nights in Africa; 7 on a Zimbabwe safari

I visited Zimbabwe between 28 Oct 2023 and 18 Nov 2023

The service throughout was outstanding.

"My Oct 2023 trip"

I visited Namibia and 2 other countries between 19 Oct 2023 and 8 Nov 2023
"We cannot praise the organisation of this trip highly enough. It was excellent from beginning to end.

It provided everything we wanted. The choice of accommodation for our budget was spot on, and some how we seemed on almost every occasion to be in one of the best rooms. Hard to believe that was by chance!

We experienced only two very minor 'hiccups' and both were resolved by the Namibian representative almost instantly - itself perhaps as good a recommendation as one can give.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Our experience of the availability of internet across Namibia was considerably better than the Notes to Travellers indicated we should expect.

We found every fuel station and lodge we visited expected us to pay by credit card, and in the end we were left with a large amount of SA currency which we were only able to use after a friendly SA lodge manager agreed to accept it in payment of our final account at the end of the trip."
