"Met all our expectations,and more!"

Arranged By Claire Scott


Kaingo Camp

Kaingo Camp

"Kaingo-a real bush safari experience"

4 nights Arrived 27 May 2011
"We arrived to find a South African-organized photographic "workshop" (6 people) in progress-not ideal from our point of view as the only "outsiders" there. However,our hosts at Kaingo had already recognized the potential discomfiture and problems which might arise and thoughtfully gave us our own vehicle and guide throughout (Kennedy), as well as staggering the set-out times for the morning and evening safaris.

Kaingo is in a beautifully remote location in the game-rich northern section of South Luangwa ,and it was really special to have such a vast area to traverse, virtually all to ourselves. Accomodation in your own bungalow with river frontage and deck was as good as we imagined, although it would have been nice to have a ceiling fan if that were possible with the solar power system.

The variety and quality of the food which we were given was first class and we do hope that Lisa can be persuaded to stay to serve up such delightful fayre to future guests. On the evening of the 29th May - our 46th wedding anniversary - we were treated to a surprise private champagne dinner on our riverside deck-a really memorable occasion!

Wildlife viewing, including some of the more unusual creatures, was quite exceptional - even the elephant which appeared immediately outside the window of our bungalow while my wife was having a shower! !zzie and Ian organized things very efficiently for us, Patrick has much accumulated bush wisdom, and Kennedy is a knowledgable guide as well as being a very personable young man. Grateful thanks to them all!!"

Waterberry Lodge

"Wonderful Waterberry!!"

3 nights Arrived 1 Jun 2011
"We relaxed after our South Luangwa safari at Waterberry Zambezi Lodge,near Livingstone. What a find!

A real jewel - not No.2 of 22 speciality lodges near Livingstone on Trip Advisor for nothing! We simply cannot recommend this place too highly. We would never again stay at one of the large over-priced and over-populated hotels directly on the Falls after experiencing Waterberry Lodge!"
