Zambian Honeymoon

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 21-Jul-2008 and 3-Aug-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

An excellent honeymoon that we will never forget that has given us a real taster of Africa. We will be back !

Suggestions for improvement:

It would be useful rethinking your advice on luggage weight limits . You may have been giving official figures but on proflight there was no strict weight limit in practice.

Feedback response

This comment is an interesting one, as clearly the light aircraft operator, Proflight, who carried these travellers on a scheduled flight did not even try to enforce their official “15kg of luggage per person” weight limit.

It’s an interesting question for us – as often this will be the case. Weight limits are rarely enforced, unless a plane is actually full.

However, in just a few cases, usually when the plane is actually full, travellers need to realise that weight limits will be strictly enforced – and luggage over this limit will have to be left behind for the next flight on this route. (There are usually very strict airline regulations about how much weight these planes can carry.)
