Zambia July 2018

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 20-Jul-2018 and 31-Jul-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Once the problem of our missed connection was dealt with most efficiently and good naturedly on a Saturday morning by Richard, Freddie and Chris, everything went smoothly.

No changes of plan and no further hiccoughs meant that we had a wonderful holiday in south Luangwa. This was our 2nd trip and we enjoyed it even more than the first.

Our 3 camps were in a similar area, being on either side of the river, but as each game drive is different and covers different areas around each camp, the similar location didn’t matter at all. In fact we were thrilled to finally see a wild dog pack whilst at our 3rd camp, although the dogs were very close to our 1st camp but we hadn’t managed to find them there. As always on safari, expect the unexpected!

Zambia and Malawi trip August 2010

On this trip, I visited Malawi & Zambia between 5-Aug-2010 and 15-Aug-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

we were very pleased with how smoothly the entire trip went, especially as this was Africa and we were prepared for the unexpected.


We were surprised at the quality of the service with SA airlines and the only small criticism was that we were not met very efficiently at Lilongwe airport on our arrival from Mfui. I went chasing around the airport asking for Robin Popes representatives to be told by actual driver that someone should have told us where he was. But after this hiccough, he was very amenable and indeed drove us perfectly to Pumulani. So, perhaps, this was just a misunderstanding at the airport.

Overall, we had a wonderful time, thank you
