One of the best holidays

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 18-Aug-2013 and 26-Aug-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a wonderful holiday. Having lived in Zambia and travelled to South Luangwa many times, I was hoping that my 12-year-old would enjoy his first trip there. It surpassed my expectations - and his.

Everything ran incredibly smoothly, from the very friendly Tours Africa crew greeting us after landing, to all the transfers and the camps themselves, we were in extremely good hands. My son was blown away by the wildlife (our first drive, only a couple of hours after landing at Mfuwe including a wonderful leopard sighting), and also by the friendliness of all the staff and the warm welcome.

Chris's latest Bradt Guide was a great update on recent developments in the country as well as a reminder of the diversity of Zambia and the spectacular wildlife you can see. And we were well-advised to start our holiday in a more flexible camp before moving to a more remote section of the park.
