Our August 2019 trip

Zambia and 1 other country between 19 Aug 2019 and 9 Sep 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"Very well organised - all arrangements/transfers worked well. No delays.

Thank you very much!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Something we were not aware of prior to our trip was that not all animals can be seen in all locations. This became very apparent when we were in Old Mondoro/Chiawa - there were no giraffes,. Whilst there should be some personal responsibility, someone who had booked a trip of a lifetime and had a checklist of animals this omission may have caused disappointment - perhaps this could be highlighted when trips are planned."

"Royal Livingstone Hotel review"

"Excellent location made repeated free visits to Victoria Falls possible. The flow over the falls was low because of successive low rainfall in wet season.
Free roaming zebra, giraffes along with impala and baboons in the grounds.

Lovely view of Zambezi river from our room.

We had a problem with our room which management addressed less promptly than would have been desired."

24 Aug 2019 • Afternoon excursion

Food average - no choice.

Quiet enjoyment limited by a noisy tour group.

Expectations not delivered, would not choose to do this trip again.

"Bushcamp room small, with amenities open to the outdoors.

Very good bush "aircon" - evening breeze cooling system - over the bed.

Being a small camp one's experience is partially dependent upon the guest mix."
