Travel reviews by Ms M & Mr M from Calgary

One of the best trips ever.

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zimbabwe between 31-Oct-2018 and 12-Nov-2018 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Expert Africa advice & arrangements excellent.

Light aircraft transfer was probably not necessary, provided no real advantage & caused restrictions on luggage.

Although there was a snafu in our transfer from Hwange Camp back to Vic Falls, the situation was satisfactorily remedied and the tour operator compensated us with free river cruise and Vic Falls walking tour. Essentially the pick-up was missed but with the help of staff from The Hide and a volunteer from a friend of the transfer company (?Wild Horizons) we were eventually (2.75 hrs late) driven back to VF & met about half-way by the tour company driver.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
