Travel reviews by Mrs S from Maldon

Surpassed our expectations

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zambia between 25-Jul-2014 and 13-Aug-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


It was a brilliant trip and although our expectations were high they were certainly exceeded. Most the lodges were small and gave us the personal service that is so important. It almost felt as though we were staying with friends. We will certainly recommend you to friends and also hope to use you again ourselves.

The only problem we encountered was with the transfers. When we left the car in Katima the transfer peop0le had no record of us and we were delayed by about an hour. the transfer, once it happened, was seamless, but it did cause us some worries as we sat in a café with mountains of luggage. Similarly no one turned up for our transfer to the airport when we were at Victoria Falls. We eventually loaded our luggage onto the last minibus going in that direction and sat5 down so they agreed to take us. I think it was an easier option than trying to move a rather stressed middle aged English couple!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Sort out the transfers
