My Oct 2018 trip

Zimbabwe between 19 Oct 2018 and 28 Oct 2018

Trip rating: Excellent
"We travelled with EA before and had high expectations. These were all met, no shortcomings. They selected the right places for us and arranged the required transportation adequately. Preperation for the trip was very pleasant with always a travel agent available for questions or a sudden change of plans. Professionals at every level and very pleasant in communication. We've already started preperations for our next trip with EA."

"We stayed in this hotel for just one night and had the place virtually for ourselves. Friendly and helpful staff, spacious, comfortable rooms and a nice swimmingpool. Good place to start or finish a trip."

Zambezi Expeditions

Zambezi Expeditions

"Zambezi Expeditions review"

3 nights Arrived 21 Oct 2018
"From the moment we arrived, everyone made us feel welcome in a non-fabricated way. Staff and guides all gave the impression of genuinly enjoying their work and their enthousiasm was contagious. Very high level of professionalsm without being formal. The emphasis on guiding is obvious, but other members of staff were just as good, which made the camp a complete picture. Location right on the riverbank is fantastic. The park itself is packed with wildlife and at the same time relatively quiet when it comes to tourists. Even with the wild dogs sightings we never saw more than 6 vehicles at the same time. Incredible encounters with elephants, hyenas and all kinds of antilope right in front of the tents. African Bush Camps keep a very good balance between a true safari experience on one side and environmental care, safety and sustainability on the other side. We were impressed by the level of knowledge the guides showed, ranging from the latin names of plants to mixing the perfect G&T.
In all; very highly recommended and a shame we had to leave."

Somalisa Expeditions

Somalisa Expeditions

"Somalisa Expeditions review"

3 nights Arrived 24 Oct 2018
"We regarded Somalisa Expeditions as a slightly more luxurious version of Zambezi Expeditions. Very skilled professionals on all levels of staff and guiding as well as just nice people. We had the camp to ourselves for a day and a half and enjoyed the full attention of everyone, without feeling crowded. The pool and sundeck in front of it make for a spectacular encounter with elephants. This part of Hwange was not as packed with animals as Mana Pools, but has a very nice variety of scenery and made us appreciate other things than just big game. Having said that; there's certainly no shortage of animals. It's a relatively small camp, located beautifully and with very comfortable permanent tents. Again, we were impressed by the high standard of guiding and the nice balance between professionalism and social skills, which lead, among other things, to very interesting conversations with different members of staff. The atmosphere is completely relaxed and made us feel that way. The same attitude of African Bush Camp towards animals, people and environment I described with regard to Zambezi Expeditions applies here. In every way it's a feel good experience and we were sad to leave it."
