Zambia trip 2014

Zambia between 2 Sep 2014 and 12 Sep 2014

Trip rating: Excellent
"The whole trip was wonderful and we are looking forward to visiting Zambia again and we are thinking of returning to Kafunta!

We would recommend to anyone who has already experienced a couple of safaris.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We discovered that 1 of our guides desperately needed footballs for the local children's teams. It would have been useful to have been advised that these items would have been a useful thing to bring.

Please thank Ellie for listening carefully to our requirements and organising a trip that met our needs/wishes so successfully.
We had a wonderful time."

Kafunta River Lodge

Kafunta River Lodge

"Kafunta"

4 nights Arrived 3 Sep 2014
"Very friendly and comfortable lodge. The service and local staff were wonderful but we found the female managers at times overbearing and controlling. We loved the way that most of the service staff were local - they were fun, engaging and informative. Even the night guards were friendly and fun to talk to.

We had drives with 4 of the guides and found them all to be experienced, knowlegeable and very focussed on giving us the best experience possible. They picked up on our particular interests very quickly and showed us everything we wanted to see.

We loved the pool and the hot tub and we were very happy in our rooms."

Island Bush Camp

Island Bush Camp

"Monsoon at Island Bush Camp!!!"

3 nights Arrived 7 Sep 2014
"We loved the bush camp experience! Again the staff were fantastic.

There was an unexpected storm on the second evening of our stay and the torrential rain lasted well into the night. The staff managed to cook and serve our dinner despite having no roof on kitchen and everyone getting extremely wet. What could have been an horrendous experience ended up being quite good fun.

The walks and drives were excellent.

Our only complaint about the camp is that we were not informed in advance that we would be transferred in an open top vehicle and so we were not dressed appropriately to cope with the heat/sun and the tsetse flies!"
