An exceptional family experience.

Zambia between 10 Aug 2007 and 21 Aug 2007

Trip rating: Excellent
"We had a wonderful trip and such a variety of experiences. The luxury organised by you was very well placed at the beginning and end of the trip as we had the balancing experience of staying on the charity compound and seeing how the majority of the Zambians really live.

Out trip to the Copper Belt was equally revealing and we were glad that we had chosen to drive that part of the journey as life at the roadside was not to be missed.

All in all we will all be returning - albeit not together! Many thanks for your quideance and suggestions."

Islands of Siankaba

Islands of Siankaba

"A wonderful introduction to Zambia"

2 nights Arrived 11 Aug 2007
"Once we arrived we were delighted with Siankaba - we had to wait for over 4 hrs for our flight and wondered if we would have been better driving up? When you get off a night flight a bit of action would have beenb prefereable to waiting around for all that time. Also we were not met by the Zambian airline rep although we saw other people being met and directed to where they needed to go.

Everything about Siankaba was beyond our expectation. It was VERY cold at night and only one room had electric blankets - the other hot water bottles.

We enjoyed the walk to the village. We were not able to have a go on the canoes (can't remember the proper name) as not enough to go round and another group of 4 had booked them."

Kapinga Camp, Zambia (this camp has since closed)

"A very special and unique experience"

3 nights Arrived 17 Aug 2007
"You definitely got the feeling not many 'white men' had been here before!! Obviously its not easy to access and that is part of the special experience. The staff were excellent, friendly helpful and knowedgible. Brad was an excellent and diligent guide but we felt he had too much responsibility running the camp and doing the guiding. Maybe another member of staff to share the work would have been preferable?

Everything about the camp and the experience was superb and unlike any other holiday experience we have had on our many travels.
The wildife and flora \and fauna were excellent and varied and more unusula than we were expecting.

Altogether wonderful for all of us which was interesting in view of our age range! 21 - 60!!!"

Lunga River Lodge, Zambia (this camp has since closed)

"A perfect end to our trip"

1 night Arrived 20 Aug 2007
"Our only regret is that we should have had 2 nights here! There was more wildlife to see in the immdeiate vicinity than Kapinga. The River was wonderful, so full of wildlife and birds and plants etc that we had never seen before.

Here the guides were very knowledigible and did not have to do managerial tasks at the lodge. This meant the couple running the lodge had more time to spend with the guests. A better balance we felt than Kapinga where 2 people seem to be doing everything.

This lodge is not in the same category as Kapinga with regard to luxury but obviously has a different function as I can see its mostly a stopping off post - but really there is more to it than that and as I say 2 nights would have been good."
