My Aug 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 17-Aug-2012 and 27-Aug-2012 and I travelled with 3 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


We were very pleased with our holiday. Everything worked out smoothly and it exceeded our expectations.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Perhaps a couple of comments on the trip notes. We arrived on time in Lusaka early on Saturday morning, but immigration was dreadful at nearly 1.5 hours and we were worried we would miss the connecting flight; the notes don't give any advice on what to do if that happens. Further, the banks were shut at that time so it wasn't possible to change dollars. However, after the initial panic we were told we could pay the internal departure fees by credit card (Visa or Mastercard). And that proved to be true at Livingstone as well as Lusaka. Making that clear in the notes would have lessened the stress somewhat.
