Zambia - Lower Luanga - Best Safari Ever!!

Zambia between 12 Sep 2009 and 22 Sep 2009

Trip rating: Excellent
"Expert Africa have become the one agent we would recommend to everyone. Your knowledge of Africa (we have travelled with you to Tanzania and Zambia so far) is outstanding. Having listened to our preferences your choice of camps was perfect.

The standards of all aspects of this trip were really outstanding. Even where we have rated below top marks, it is as much to differentiate between the camps as to penalise any.

Zambia/the Lower luanga has so far been our best safari. we rarely visit a destination twice, but I sincerely hope we return, at least to Zambia and ideally to Tafica if not others in the Lower Luanga.

Thanks particularly to Chris who spoke to me and recommended the camps personnally (we are not the easiest customers). Having spoken to a number of other Expert Africa customers, it seems he somehow finds time to speak personnally to most of them - incredible - long may this continue!"

Kaingo Camp

Kaingo Camp

"Kaingo - Loved The Hides"

3 nights Arrived 15 Sep 2009
"Again Really enjoyed our time at Kaingo. Compared to many other trips this camp would have compared excellently. Unfortunately in comparison to Kapamba and Tafica it was up against incredibly good competion!

Probably the most beatiful part of the Lower Luanga, but also the busiest area that we went to - 2/3 vehicles from Kaingo, plus Norman Carr Safaris (and others?).

Very disappointed with the antics of one of the Norman Carr vehicles which charged in whilst two of Shenton's vehicles were quietly watching a Leopard Hunting. It was made quite clear - lights off or with infrared when on, and warning indicators - that something was happening and the need to approach with care. In stead they charged in and the Leopard lost its prey having been just about to strike.

Excellent guiding from Patrick and Freya."

"Tafica - saved the best till last!"

3 nights Arrived 18 Sep 2009
"Just Superb. All the same comments as given for Kapampa. Brilliant wilderness location, Outstanding food, Excellent guiding, Superb room, Great hosting.

Difficult to separate them on most criteria, but perhaps Tafica just has the edge given:-
- The personnal touch of the owners - John and Carol et al!
- Outstanding guiding - particularly Brian.
- The option to take the microlight flight.

We had a superb time at Tafica - the Leopards "falling" out of the trees."
