First time in Africa

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 17-Oct-2007 and 30-Oct-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

I booked this on a whim after reading about walking safaris in the FT. It was our first trip to Africa, first safari and I would go back. Meeting other travellers and hearing their tales and recommendations makes us want to see other parts of the country.

Next time I would not do a safari every day, now I know what is involved, but perhap see a little more of the country.

I initially thought the trip was expensive but looking back and on what we got for our money it was very good value.
