Travel reviews by Mr B from Bath


Superb safari in Liuwa Plains

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 9-May-2012 and 16-May-2012 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Liuwa is a sensational destination - remote, peaceful and with outstanding birdlife and large mammals. That is is not a 'Big Five' park (you won't see rhino, leopard or elephant, and as yet only a handful of buffalo are being reintroduced), it's a wonderful place to see vast numbers of wildebeest and zebra, astonishingly diverse bird species and predators in action.

Robin Pope and his team provide an outstanding service, and the overall experience is quite unique.

Feedback response

In the interests of transparency - readers should note that (unlike pretty much all of our other reviews) this traveller is not a normal customer; he is a Wanderlust journalist who wanted to travel to write an article about this trip, and hence who asked Expert Africa to assist him with his trip.

We've included his remarks here because, like many good and independent-minded journalists with whom we work, we know that his aim is to write accurately about his experiences, without fear, favour or bias.
