My Nov 2015 trip

On this trip, I visited Mozambique between 3-Nov-2015 and 17-Nov-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We loved the country and felt safer there than in any other African country we have been to. A great holiday - thanks

Ellie was very helpful on the outward journey when our BA flight was delayed and we may have had to change flight. Luckily in the end we just about made our connection thanks to SAA's flexible check in timings!

Our best safari so far.

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zambia between 2-Nov-2013 and 13-Nov-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

The whole trip went very well. We enjoyed the hotels, camps and the game drives. The animals were varied and plentiful. The gudiling to a very high standard. Loved it.

Before the trip when BA changed our flights, Ellie was extremely helpful and diligent in ensuring that the itinerary (that had to be completely revamped) was fine tuned to meet our expectations despite us changing our minds a few times on the routings and camps!. Definitely an 'exceeded expectations' experience.
