Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs E from Croydon


Great time in Tanzania

On this trip, I visited Tanzania & Zanzibar between 2-Sep-2016 and 13-Sep-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a wonderful holiday, with lots of variety. Both camps we stayed in were excellent and offered different game viewing experiences.

Stone Town provided a completely different 'town' experience, while Chumbe was the perfect place for relaxation. Staff everywhere we stayed were first-class.

All our connections worked perfectly. Many thanks to Liz for organising everything so competently.

Excellent safari and Victoria Falls visit

On this trip, I visited Malawi & Zambia between 6-Aug-2014 and 18-Aug-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Very good - excellent game drives and walks, superb and knowledgeable guiding, excellent accommodation in wonderful situations with efficient and attentive staff. Combining a visit to spectacular Victoria Falls with two safari locations worked very well for us. The overall trip went without a hitch and we were very impressed with the way all our internal transfers were handled seamlessly by RPS's support staff on the ground. It has left us with lots of great memories.

A fabulous two weeks

On this trip, I visited Malawi & South Africa between 6-Sep-2013 and 20-Sep-2013 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Malawi was absolutely wonderful, one of our best holidays ever. Would love to go back some day.

Weather in Cape Town was variable, from sun to hail, through wind and rain, so we couldn't do a couple of things that we wanted to do (go up Table Mountain and visit Robben Island). We did see whales at Hermanus, which was on our to-do list, and penguins at Betty's Bay. City bus tours were good for getting to know the city. We were very glad we hired the car for two days as this enabled us to see the coast and the wine area.

All arrangements worked like clockwork, thanks a lot, Claire., for putting it all together for us.
