Zambia between 5 Sep 2012 and 13 Sep 2012

Trip rating: Excellent
"We had the most spectacular trip with one of the highlights visiting Livingstone Island on the Victoria Falls and making our way to the "Devil's Pool" - although I had no idea how dangerous it was until I was halfway there!!

Thanks so much for helping us organise a fabulous week in Africa and making our journey so special. It all went unbelievably well and I will send you my detailed blog posts on the trip as and when I write them.

Or check out my blog here in the next few weeks http://familyaffairsandothermatters.com

Thanks again.

Claire also helped us hugely and no, I can't think of ways of improving your service at the moment - apart from hiring me as your new Zambia expert!"

"Our own private island"

1 night Arrived 6 Sep 2012
"This was a wonderful way to start our journey - given that we were taking our father's ashes back to Zambia we enjoyed the feeling of being the only people in Africa on our own private island. We were well looked after, but in the end found that this was not the place we wanted to do our little service because our father had specifically requested the Victoria Falls and we weren't as close as we would have liked to have been.

We had a magnificent meal and 24 hours just relaxing and enjoying being back in Africa. Although I have to say that it took me a few days to get used to sleeping without doors!!"

"Fabulous safari lodge"

2 nights Arrived 7 Sep 2012
"We loved it here. Had our own private family quarters with a sitting room, two rooms and a plunge pool. There were many activities on offer and we spent a lot of time on the river. A stunning location with wonderful staff.

I met Ben and Vanessa and talked to them about Tongabezi and the school. The food was amazing and I want them to bring out a cook book ASAP!"

Chongwe River Camp

Chongwe River Camp

"Best Safari camp ever"

4 nights Arrived 9 Sep 2012
"What an extraordinary place. Our camp overlooked the confluence of the Chongwe and Zambezi rivers and gave us a spectacular view of all manner of wildlife - hippos, elephants, lions, crocodiles, baboons, impala, kudu, many birds, all coming down to the water's edge to drink.

It is not a camp for the fainthearted mind you - the first night an elephant broke into my bathroom and I was terrified. Little did I realise that this was quite normal behaviour and nothing to be frightened of. The other three nights were spent enjoying my nightly visits and quietly watching elephants eating their much loved Albida seeds (elephant biscuits) at spectacularly close quarters. During the day the elephants came into our camp and strolled past us. As long as you talk quietly to them and don't get too close they are fine.

We even had a leopard in camp one night that we sped off with some other guests in the truck to look at more closely.

The staff were excellent and catered for our every need.

We did many activities including game viewing, tiger fish fishing, canoeing, sunset river trips - all unbelievably exciting.

We will definitely go back."
