Travel reviews by Wild hunting dogs from Essex


A great holiday

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 3-May-2008 and 18-May-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a great holiday and a great experience. The balance of locations was right for us. We chose three Kwando camps to keep the cost down, but have no regrets. We enjoyed them all, and we will remember fondly the breakfasts around the campfires at daybreak.

Jacks Camp was amazing, and we were lucky in that we had a free upgrade to it having originally booked San Camp.

The travel arrangements all went like clockwork. We had no delays, even when the journey had several components, as when travelling from the Victoria Falls to Lebala. We were also extremely grateful to Claire for sorting out an alternative flight when Nationwide went out of business. We met up with people left to flounder by other travel companies.

Thanks for all your help, and apologies for the delay in retuning this feedback.

Suggestions for improvement:

I really can't think of any.

Feedback response

To explain the comment above ... these travellers booked all of their trip with us, including all their flights.

Shortly before they travelled, one of the airlines used for a regional flight in Africa, Nationwide Airlines, sadly ceased trading. They were an apparently good and reliable airline, so nobody had any warning of this.

Naturally, Expert Africa took responsibility for these flights arrangements, and made alternative travel plans for these travellers at no cost to them. This is one of the advantages for travellers of us arranging their trip: we take responsibility for what we arrange – and we do our best to make sure it happens seamlessly.

We won’t let you down, or let you flounder!
