Zambia between 7 Sep 2007 and 18 Sep 2007

Trip rating: Excellent
"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."

"Treated like VIPS"

4 nights Arrived 8 Sep 2007
"We were totally spoiled at Tena Tena due entirely to the wonderful Kerri and her team. Kerri guided us on every game drive and made our four days at Tena unbelievably special. The Caterer, Kat, also looked after us beautifully and we were very grateful for the enormous care and attention they gave us.

The game viewing over the four days was the best either of us have seen in over fourteen safaris."

"One night in the bush"

1 night Arrived 12 Sep 2007
"We were pleased to have only spent one night at Mwamba. We were probably depressed at leaving Tena and too excited about seeing Derek and Jules at Kaingo to settle in properly.

The camp was wonderful, though the Caterer, Gale, came across as more of a guest than a member of staff. This is not a criticism, merely an observance."

"Shenton love"

4 nights Arrived 13 Sep 2007
"We returned to Kaingo this year because we adore Derek and Jules. The bonus this year was meeting their wonderful niece (and Caterer), Stephie. Again, we were treated like VIPs.

Neither of us particularly enjoy game drives that go on until about 2100, so they very kindly arranged for us to be picked up after sundowners and we were very grateful for their special care.

Time spent with the Shentons is always magical and special, regardless of the wildlife."

"Back in civilisation"

1 night Arrived 17 Sep 2007
"If one has to return from the bush to civilisation, this hotel is the best place to do it in.

A fairly typical large business orientated hotel that is clean, friendly and with some nice restaurants. Excellent service."
