Our Safari

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zambia between 13-Oct-2008 and 25-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Another great time in Africa, it always fascinates and enthralls us. No problems with any of our arrangements inspite of a fairly convoluted itinerary. If anyone has discovered an effective way of dealing with tetse flies we would appreciate their advice.They were quite a problem on the Lower Zambezi this year!

Apart from the flies our only other grumble was having to pay £75 visa charge each for a 6 hour stay in Zambia while en-route to Namibia,and then being charged again when we returned 5 days later.



No, the service and trip lived up to our expectations.

Zambia 2007

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 29-Oct-2007 and 10-Nov-2007 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had our problems on this holiday, we lost a day due to confusion over our flight home and the lack of walking opportunities was a disappointment.The tetses and the bug in the ear also did not help. However the trip was immensely interesting and ultimately very enjoyable. We are pretty experienced travellers in Africa and not easily phased but I am not sure some clients might not have found some of our issues a little daunting. An interesting observation by a fellow traveller at Chongwe that his stay there had made his trip was a view we strongly supported.
