Zambia trip 2010

Zambia between 17 Oct 2010 and 28 Oct 2010

Trip rating: Excellent
"As usual, the whole process, from deliberating on which trip to take, to arriving home, was stress free. Ellie Dunkels was extremely helpful in organizing the trip, contacting Tafifka etc. Personally, one of the reasons I am a repeat customer is due to the extremely professional, knowledgeable, yet very approachable staff, would love to come to staff Xmas party!

Tafika, as before was great. Many thanks to Heather, Bryan, John, Carol. Rhona, Stephen, Alex, Clever, Special, Laurence's, Godfrey, and all the other staff, who work so hard, and make it all seem so effortless.

Fantastic trip, cheers!!"

Mwaleshi Camp

Mwaleshi Camp

"Mwaleshi Camp review"

4 nights Arrived 23 Oct 2010
"Really can't add much more to comments re previous comments.

If I was being extremely picky, I'd say the only improvement would be more more ice/colder beer. Having said that, the staff, and Laurence in particular were pro-active in putting beer in the freezer to cool off. This is not a criticism in any way, this is a bush camp after all. Alternatively, damp socks work well!!"

Greta time in Zambia

Zambia between 2 Nov 2007 and 15 Nov 2007

Trip rating: Excellent
"A fantastic time was had, good game viewing, everyone was extremely helpful and welcoming, all went extremely smoothly, and was therefore very relaxing.

Special thanks to Heather and Bryan at Tafika, Rachel at Bilimungwe, and Anna Devereux ar Expert Africa who did a fantastic job of organising the trip at very short notice."

"Tafika Rocks"

4 nights Arrived 3 Nov 2007
"We had a fantastic time at Tafika, the room was great, loved the outdoor shower! All the staff were very welcoming, Heather was a great hostess, Bryan a fantastic guide.

The food was great and all the staff were very accommodating with Barb's food intolerances (especially where we had not previously specified these.) We couldn't have wished for better time, shame we didn't have longer.

The only slightly down point was that we didn't get to do the microlight trip as John Coppinger wasn't there."

Bilimungwe Bushcamp

"Bilimungwe review"

2 nights Arrived 7 Nov 2007
"Expert guiding by Manda and Mishak, learning about the various bush medeicines was very interesting. Rachel was an absolute star, very welcoming and made us feel right at home.

After Tafika had set such a high standard, Billi felt a little neglected, the rooms were in need of a litle sprucing up, and the camp suffered a little in the storms. Having said that a great time was had."

After staying at the bush camps, felt a little impersonal and regimented."
