Zambia and Botswana - a phenomenal trip!

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 30-Jul-2013 and 7-Aug-2013 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


Our trip was phenomenal! I am so glad we booked our safari through Expert Africa. Nick Hobbs spent a great deal of time to understand our expectations and put together an amazing package for us.

We began our journey in Livingstone and then traveled to three camps/lodges in Botswana (Savute, the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park). At each location, we seemed to be staying in prime units with respect to views and privacy and the guides, activities and food were all excellent. Winter in Botswana was a great time to take a safari…pleasant day-time temperatures, no snakes, bugs were minimal and the animals were quite visible in the low foliage.

Before the trip, I was afraid the nights in Botswana would be too cold. The nights and early mornings were indeed crisp, but we dressed accordingly and had a wonderful time.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
