My Sep 2019 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 10-Sep-2019 and 22-Sep-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had a wonderful holiday with no problems or nasty surprises. We'll never forget a holiday where we saw 15 individual leopards in 10 days and 8 in a day!

Before the trip we were a liitle concerned about the short transit time in Lusaka between the arrival of our afternoon Emirates flight and our Proflight booking to Mfuwe. We were assured this was not a problem and this proved true.From the time of landing, Immigration and Visa issue, Luggage collection, and check in for the next flight were completed in just 30 minutes.

We were very pleased with the knowledge on birds of guides at all the camps. This meant there was always something to look at.

A couple of points of our personal views not necessarily relevant to Expert Africa:

We rather wish we had spent one night in Lusaka, for no other reason than we don't feel we've visited the country in the true sense.

In a future trip we would look for an alternative to the Emirates routing via Dubai.The timing of this allows little chance of a proper sleep in a transit time of over 17 hours from London to Lusaka. Via J'burg is better in this respect and we would also consider more direct routes via Addis Ababa or Nairobi, which could include a stopover.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Nothing springs to mind. Every query was handled quickly and efficiently.
