Trip rating: Excellent
"Great trip, everything went so well. No glitches.

The connections and transfers were all seamless. Chobe River crossings between Zambia and Botswana was easy.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We are so impressed with the trip Lucy put together for us. Even though we just saw a small corner of Africa it was truely amazing.

Lucy really listened to what we wanted to do and made it all happen"

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge

Waterberry Zambezi Lodge

"The Farmhouse at Waterberry "

3 nights Arrived 7 May 2018
"The Farmhouse was beyond all our expectations, more like paradise. Sitting in the infinity pool looking across the Zambezi River to Zimbabwe seeing elephants and hearing lions was unbelievable. Hippos at night made you realize you really were on the river.

The staff are a ten, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Enjoyed every minute. Getting out on the river with our guide for a sunset cruise with gin and tonics in hand was a highlight, as was the tiger fishing trip.

Spent a day exploring Victoria Falls from here and again our guide was excellent. Don't bother eating at Olga's in Livingstone.

Animals sited: Hippos, elephants, giraffes, zebra, water buffalo, velvet monkeys, kudu, wart hog, impala, bush buck.
Birds sited: hornbill, bee eaters, tropical bou bou, cormorants, egrets, glossy ibis, hamer kop, kingfisher, meyer's parrot to name a few."

3 nights Arrived 10 May 2018
"Lots,of opportunity for game drives. The boat trip was excellent and certainly a highlight. The family chalet worked really well for us and our two kids, even though the thrashing of the elephants seemed only a few feet away.

The staff singing at dinner was really enjoyable and a very special treat. We even got into the dancing.

Our guide was excellent, taking the time to point out birds and trees along with all the big animals. Very knowledgeable and personable.

Animals sited: lions, giraffes, impala, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, baboons, Cape buffalo, kudu, water bucks, jackals, hyena, zebra, puff adder.
Birds sited: lots of birds - 89 species recorded"
