June in South Luangwa

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 31-May-2014 and 14-Jun-2014 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was my first visit at this time of year, and it exceeded my expectations. Tall grass was an issue in some areas, especially the walking camps, but not in all the areas, and it wasn't as bad as I'd feared it might be. I had excellent leopard and lion viewing, four Pels Fishing owls and very enjoyable walks.

The trip was a mix of new camps (for me) and old favourites but all were excellent in their own slightly different ways. South Luangwa truly is a paradise, and still my favourite part of Africa. I look forward to returning next year.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

I would like to see the website/brochure with a bit more information on pricing- at least guideline prices. Also information on special offers eg "stay 4-pay 3". As a solo traveller, information on single supplements and ideas for trips with low or no single supplements would be much appreciated.
