Our 2014 Safari trip

Zambia and 1 other country between 20 Aug 2014 and 31 Aug 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"We had an amazing holiday.Giraffe Manor was a unique experience.The safaris at the two camps were excellent and compared very favourably with our two previous experiences in Botswana and Zimbabwe. For us,the balance of the holiday was right with three days at GM and six on Safari.Safari days are brilliant but exhausting and six days on Safari for us was about right given all the travelling to get there and back.

We highly recommend a Safari holiday to anyone interested in nature and although we had serious doubts about travelling to Kenya,there were no issues for us.

On the negative side the absence of direct flights to Zambia from the UK is clearly an issue as this makes the journey even harder and could easily dissuade people from going.Our friends had to fly to Johannesburg,then to Lusaka,then another flight to Mfewe and finally a two and a half hour drive to the camp."
