Zambia July 2016

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 25-Jul-2016 and 6-Aug-2016 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We had a superb safari.

The weather was more akin to the end of August than the end of July and everywhere was very dry, forcing the game to the river. In all 3 lodges visited, Tena Tena, Lion Camp and Nkwali, we had excellent guides and better sightings than expected. Tena Tena and Lion Camp were more remote locations with less safari traffic than Nkwali.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

Game viewing at first 2 camps was disappointing, probably due to the drier "wet " season - nobody's fault
