My Oct 2012 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia & Zimbabwe between 20-Oct-2012 and 26-Oct-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


The trip was very good.

The Silver Tours transfer to and from the Hwange Main Camp were 1/2 to 1 hour late each way. Next time, we would likely schedule and earlier pickup time than 10:30 AM, since they're likely to be late anyway. We would also fly in and out of Livingstone Airport. Even with the construction, it seemed better to us than Victoria Falls Airport. We would probably arrange the Devil's Pool activity later in the day, since it includes breakfast on the island in the morning - when we already have breakfast provided at the hotel.
