Travel reviews by Mr & Mrs R. from Wadhurst

My Aug 2019 trip

On this trip, I visited Botswana & Zambia between 22-Aug-2019 and 6-Sep-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


Perhaps not quite up to expectations because game sightings not as intense, prolific or frequent as anticipated. This may have been due to what we understood to be a two year drought.

Having flown economy, we were glad of the opportunity to relax for 2 nights at Victoria Falls before starting the safari. Our afternoon arrival at our first camp coincided with that of another UK couple who had flown from the UK straight to the camp and, unlike us, were too tired to go straight out on an evening game drive.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
