Own Arrangements

"Livingstone and Victoria Falls were wonderful"

3 nights Arrived 29 Jan 2015
"Only disappointment was the failure of Expert Africa's arrangement to have us collected from Livingstone Airport and transport us to the Zambezi Sun.

We were collected by a company called Safari4Africa displaying a sign saying "SMITH x 2". When we arrived at the Zambezi Sun we were charged US$ 30.00 for the priviledge. When we queried this, and then tried calling the company the ZS receptionist told us the telephone number was in Zimbabwe.

Only later did we discover that it was Wild Horizons that should have done the transfer....which they later did to Kasane."

Kwara Camp

"Disappointing compared to Pom Pom"

3 nights Arrived 3 Feb 2015
"Atmosphere was spoilt by a dominant group of Germans who hogged the safari vehicles, and remained allof at meal times.

Camp management was lacking. Guides and trackers seemed to have their own fiefdom, and we were made to feel like tourists."
