Oct 2014 trip to Zambia

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 5-Oct-2014 and 17-Oct-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Very satisfied with the lodges that we stayed at. The lodges, the guiding and the wildlife viewing exceeded our expectations.
I only wish we had scheduled more time at Kaingo and Mwamba, but we'll just have to come back.

The only other comment was about the time to drive from Tafika back to Mfuwe. See my comments on Remote Africa safari flights.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Can't think of anything right now.

The trip

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 13-Oct-2007 and 7-Nov-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We couldn't believe how much variety there was - the Namib desert, the Skeleton Coast, Damaraland, Etosha, Waterberg, Erongo. The lodges were all great, with personal service and a chance to chat to local people working in the lodges. We were very happy with the itinerary, although we wished we could have had more days in several places - but that is always the way - never enough time!

I wouldn't hesitate to go back and would definitely recommend your services. In fact Lloyd is thinking we should go back next year, so I may be in touch again next year!.
