Did what it said on the tin!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 9-Aug-2013 and 17-Aug-2013 and I travelled with 5 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:


We got exactly what we asked for with our Expert Africa trip. I am a seasoned Africa traveller and we were taking my mother in law and her 2 grandsons on safari for the first time. To keep the cost down Expert Africa recommended family accommodation and this was great, giving us plenty of space and privacy.

We got a great variety of terrain and game combining South Luangwa and Lower Zambezi (I particularly wanted to be close to rivers for the variety) and I felt Eleanor really understood our needs when recommending Flatdogs and Kasaka River Lodge. Both camps were open so game could walk through which gave it such an authentic feel as we had elephants passing through at both places and could hear the animals during the night.

I have to say the Hippo Pod at Kasaka is one of the finest places I have stayed in Africa!
