Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs C from W Sussex

My May 2008 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana, Mozambique & Zambia between 8-May-2008 and 25-May-2008 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Overall, a very enjoyable and well organised trip. Because we had been so well briefed by Susannah, we were not disappointed.... as expected,we had to look for game (that tall grass is just so amazing - it hid a whole herd of buffalo!) and despite some reservations about Kwara (which was not our preferred choice but availability was low when we booked) we were pleasantly surprised by Kwara.

Selinda was lovely and Azura was superb. My husband said that he would remember the view of the Zambezi from Tongabezi was very special.

Feedback response

When asked for any 'Suggestions for improvement' these travellers commented:

"No, weboth think that you pitch your trips just right for the traveller rather than the tourist...those looking for the experience. We met a lot of interesting and like minded people and they weren't all English! We also met several tour operators (there had been a conference in Durban and they were sampling camps in the delta). Wilderness safaris in particular were very complimentary about Expert Africa."
