Zambia 2014

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 23-Jul-2014 and 7-Aug-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Excellent which came up to and at times exceeded expectations.

All the camps had excellent staff who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable for all abilities. They were kind, helpful, good fun and determined to give us the best holiday possible. After requesting bottled water this was always provided and the request to be near the bar/dining because of mobility problems was provided at each camp.

Eleanor fixed this and the disabled assistance at all airports which worked well.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Feedback form impossible to access from our PC. This sent from iPad. We have had three holidays through Expert Africa.
They are expensive but fabulous holidays. It is the people at the camps that make them so special.

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 8-Jul-2009 and 24-Jul-2009 and I travelled with 1 other person.

This trip should have been superb, but DSM's illness restricted our enjoyment.

The aftermath of the gastro-enteritis, which included a broken ankle bone and a thrombosis, will continue to Feb 2010 at least. The gastro-enteritis bug was never identified as DSM was admitted to the Infectious Diseases Unit at Newcastle General Hospital only three weeks after the incident and ten days after we returned home.
