ExcellentExcellent

The best safari yet. Thanks to Claire for arranging.

A magical and special trip.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Expert Africa does exactly what it 'says on the tin'. Every single detail and arrangement was perfect.

Chris Mc will be delighted to know that we're discussing Namibia next and may require his help and suggestions.

Wild Dog Week

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 27-Mar-2009 and 4-Apr-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The whole trip was magical and very very special.

I thought I had requested window and aisle seats on our original booking form, but as this was as long time ago, I could have got my forms mixed up. However, we were booked into seats in the centre but this proved not to be a problem.

If it had been possible, we would like to have been warned about the renovations in the departure lounge at Lusaka and that for an additional $20 per person we could gain access to the SA Airways lounge.

However, an altogether fabulous trip and we intend to return to the valley is September 2011.

Suggestions for improvement:

I think I mentioned this last time, but would it be possible to add in your 'Notes for Travellers..' that the international departure tax of $25 dollars has already been paid for?

Feedback means it's over!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 7-Sep-2007 and 18-Sep-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

You need to add six paw prints for the clients who have had a safari that has excelled their expectations and believe me, we had high expectations.

From the moment we checked in at Heathrow to the moment we landed back at Heathrow we were looked after superbly.

If I have any niggles it would be the meal times at Mwamba / Kaingo. We preferred the meal times and self service (thereby avoiding 'American-sized' portions) at Tena Tena and found it was too late to eat at 21:30 if we were waiting for game drives to return. I also ended up missing lunch because it was too close to breakfast. We appreciate that if clients have seen a kill at 20:00, it would be difficult to return to the lodge straight away, but we felt that it was unfair that all the guests had to wait until everyone had returned rather than perhaps the guide explaining that if the clients wished to remain with the kill, that their dinner might be slightly colder. Meal times at RPS seemed to be much more efficient and time-friendly.
