My Aug 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 21-Aug-2015 and 1-Sep-2015 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This was a very well put together trip. Although we spent a minimum number of nights at each camp (2) Robin Pope safaris moved all our luggage seamlessly and we were able to have a transfer and drive at the same time!

I would also highly commend Robin Pope for their ability to help us through Lusaka and Livingston airports.

Particularly helpful was their ability to get us through the diplomatic channel when getting our visa into Zambia!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

No. Well done!

My Feb 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Kenya between 8-Feb-2014 and 23-Feb-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a fantastic trip.

The second camp we chose was much smarter than we had expected, we couldn't fault it but we would have preferred something more relaxed with the use of the campfire rather than formal lounge. As we were the only ones there we felt they needed to alter their routine a little.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

The rough guide was very helpful.

We felt the early visa option was a waste of money as we queued just the same as those purchasing at the airport.
