Wonderful Zambian experience

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 18-Oct-2008 and 28-Oct-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


This was always going to be a big holiday for us - a holiday with a difference, a holiday surpassing our normal family holidays and it lived up to all expectations and more. We loved Zambia, we learnt a lot about the country and its people and its animals.

Our flights all left on time, we had no illness (apart from a few teste fly bites). Taking 2 boys aged 13 and 9 to somewhere so different was always going to be a bit of a gamble - would they enjoy it, would they get bored after a few days would they be able to cope with the heat.....No worries They loved it as did Lawrence and I and we have so many special memories to treasure for the rest of our lives.

It was a holiday of a lifetime for us and it didnt disappoint. In fact it was better than I had dared hope. If i had to be very critical the only thing i would have changed would have been to have spent 4 days at S. Lwangwa Nat. Pk and 6 days at the Zambesi. There just a greater variety of activities to do there.

Suggestions for improvement:

Anna, you were wonderful.You cant improve on perfection!
