My Sep 2014 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 30-Sep-2014 and 19-Oct-2014 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Met the objective of matching the excellent trip to Tanzania organised by Expert Africa in 2009.

From the first contact with Megan to arrival back at Heathrow, the trip was professionally organised, exciting and seamless.

We found that visiting South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi was important. Dry and brown versus wet and green. We would have missed out by only visiting one of the National Parks. Zambia was a revelation. It was VERY HOT, as predicted, but we managed and are happy that we chose the dry season.

Catching 5 Tiger fish (largest 10.5 lbs) was great fun. The quantity and quality of game sightings throughout was staggering.
