High exspectations fully fulfilled .

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 15-Jun-2011 and 29-Jun-2011 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We normally never go twice to the same places.

So visiting South Luangwa in November 2010, and going back in June , was quite a risk.

Burt we are now looking for some friends to come with us for our third visit.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Develop for each group of travellers a dedicated webpage ( strictly private : login + password ) with all the essentials of the journey ( Copy of tickets, departure times, where and when booked, local contacts, emergency contacts, phone numbers, mail addresses, reliable clinics etc ) accessible for a period starting from two weeks before until one week after the journey.

Give the possibility for the travellers to add photocopy of passports, visas, driving license, vaccination cards, bankreferences etc .

If in need, It can function as a handy backup - wherever you are - as long as you can get on the internet.

( I dón't know of any travel organisation offering this facility, but for some years now I put my travel plans on the internet.
Only friends, family and myself can consult it if necessary )

My Nov 2010 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 5-Nov-2010 and 15-Nov-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Excellent organisation and coordination ( travel connections : plane - car - boat - connecting flights etc )
Wherever we expected someone : he was present, knowledgeable and up to his job.

Very well organised. ( greetings at airports - assistance to jump the VISA queue on arrival in Lusaka )
Quality of the provided services = superb.

In our first contact - by phone - : perfect selection of the camps by Chris McIntyre .
( although a bit handicapped by the timing of the trip : several camps were closed or closing )

Adminstrative follow-up by Lucy Copsen : very efficient , very friendly


It might look as us being easy going , easily satisfied travellers. We are not.
Our quotations are as we feel : Very satisfied.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Keep us informed by mail and/ or brochure !

We keep telling people how pleased we are.
