Overall feedback

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 21-Sep-2009 and 6-Oct-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Norman Carr Safaris were excellent - facilities and food first rate. They are however overprotective of guests and , if you have done any independent self drive and camping, their safety precautions are OTT and risk spoiling the experience. So be beware.

For first timers they would be great. The walking was really good and our guides were generally excellent. The ZAWA scouts did a great job.

N Luangwa was really relaxed and more of a wilderness experience. Highly recommended.
