Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs H from Cheshire


Another good trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 18-Aug-2010 and 2-Sep-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

As a whole the trip was excellent, although somewhat marred by our time at Kaingo which was disappointing and Pioneer camp and lack of food on the return flight.

However, this does not detract from what was on the whole a very enjoyable trip.
Lucy was like a breath of fresh air after the earlier mishaps with regards to our booking and we much appreciated Chris's offer of the flight out upgrade.

A marvellous safari

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 1-Oct-2008 and 16-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The trip as a whole was excellent, very enjoyable, and very fruitful as regards animal sightings, and vegetation and general environment explanations. We would highly recommend such a trip, and we would highly recommend Robin Pope Safaris, which we hope keeps its efficient but homespun individual character.

We went at the end of the season in spite of the heat, expecting good game viewings, but found the heat at night a problem and made much use of kikois. For the first time we all got gut problems, and found we were not alone in this, but cannot put the cause down to any one thing - heat, dehydration or food. However, only one of us had to miss one game drive, and staff were solicitous, so ailments were an inconvenience, rather than a major problem.
