Feedback means it's over!

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 7-Sep-2007 and 18-Sep-2007 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


You need to add six paw prints for the clients who have had a safari that has excelled their expectations and believe me, we had high expectations.

From the moment we checked in at Heathrow to the moment we landed back at Heathrow we were looked after superbly.

If I have any niggles it would be the meal times at Mwamba / Kaingo. We preferred the meal times and self service (thereby avoiding 'American-sized' portions) at Tena Tena and found it was too late to eat at 21:30 if we were waiting for game drives to return. I also ended up missing lunch because it was too close to breakfast. We appreciate that if clients have seen a kill at 20:00, it would be difficult to return to the lodge straight away, but we felt that it was unfair that all the guests had to wait until everyone had returned rather than perhaps the guide explaining that if the clients wished to remain with the kill, that their dinner might be slightly colder. Meal times at RPS seemed to be much more efficient and time-friendly.
