Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs N from Edgware


Nichols in Zambia

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 9-Oct-2013 and 23-Oct-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a memorable time when we visited South Luangwa 10 years ago and I'd been slightly apprehensive that this trip might have been an anti-climax. In the event, it was just as good and we really enjoyed the experience of staying in bush camps again. The balance between being close to nature and providing the essential comforts was just about right.

As we were there in mid-October the temperatures were very high which would have deterred a lot of people, but it did mean that animals congregated around the water sources which certainly increased our sightings.

Overall feedback

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 22-Oct-2010 and 8-Nov-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Our booking process was marred slightly by the fact that Anna was the person with whom we deal initially but subsequently it seemed to alternate between her and Lucy which meant that communication wasn't as seamless as it might have been.

There was also a problem when we asked over the phone for a quote, but you were under the impression that we were still considering which camps we were interested in and were waiting for us to make the next move.
