Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs G from Kent


A great safari and beach holiday

On this trip, I visited Malawi & Zambia between 17-Dec-2008 and 3-Jan-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Overall, we got everything we wanted from this holiday. A great week's game viewing, then a short trip to a stunning beachside lodge on Lake Malawi for a week of luxury R&R.

The BA experience excluded, we were well looked after every inch of the way by Robin Pope and Expert Africa .
We would highly recommend Nikwali and Pumulani.

My Dec 2007 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 12-Dec-2007 and 14-Jan-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Zambia was simply great. The pristine wildness of the South Luangwa park, particularly out at the Kapamba bushcamp, was quite awe inspiring. We saw all the wildlife we hoped to see, and more besides in terms of the smaller fauna such as birds, insects and reptiles.

Overall, we were well looked after by your agents in Zambia and South Africa, as well as at home by Clare. The Norman Carr safari was a bit of a disappointment, and BA were their usual mediocre selves, biut all in all, this was a great experience for us.

We'd certainly look to come back to Zambia again, and would have no hesitation in using Expert Africa.
