Tongabezi as a base to see the Victoria Falls was great and a perfect way to end our holiday.
Everything went as planned without a hitch of any kind - a real tribute to professional organisation. Many thanks!"

"Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge review"
"Kaingo Camp review"
Firstly, the guide had informed the managers of the planned route for their walk and organised the rendezvous correctly. However, when he first radioed for a pick-up, the message was received by Kaingo, but not passed on as it should have been. When their guide radioed a second time, on arrival at the rendezvous point, poor radio reception caused the message to be garbled, and hence the vehicle was further delayed before it finally arrived. The camp has put additional training in place to double-down on this for the future.
This shouldn’t have happened, and we apologise most profusely to these travellers.
Fortunately, had the situation been more serious or urgent, then there are two more extreme steps that would have been taken – which would have alerted more people and brought help immediately. Fortunately there wasn’t a major emergency, and these weren’t needed.
