Our August 2019 trip

On this trip, I visited South Africa & Zambia between 19-Aug-2019 and 9-Sep-2019 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


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.
