Our great trip to Zambia 2015

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 11-Aug-2015 and 22-Aug-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

This trip was all we had hoped for.

Although we understand most people visit Shiwa N'gandu last, we appreciated the relaxed atmosphere there first after our long trip out - no getting up at 5.30 here but a leisurely breakfast at 8.30. We also appreciated the luxury of Anabezi at the end. Three very different camps - all quite remote meaning not much other camp traffic about. we also had different experiences at each with excellent guiding throughout whether in vehicles, in a boat or on foot (an activity we had not experienced before which we really enjoyed}; the guides all worked hard to give us varied and illuminating experiences.

What a fantastic trip!

On this trip, I visited Namibia between 8-Jun-2010 and 26-Jun-2010 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

We asked for something special to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary and we certainly got it. The highlights are too numerous to mention but we must comment on the people - they were all so friendly and helpful which really was one of the factors making this such a great holiday. We have returned full of wonderful memories.

Apart from specifics already covered, we must compliment Sefofane for very comfortable flight transfers. The game drive transfer between Ongava and Onguma was spoiled by it being unusually windy which meant we arrived at Onguma very, very dusty, but we did see lions on the way walking right up to our vehicle.

We should mention that South African 200 Rand noted are no longer accepted in Namibia due to problems with forgeries. They can only be exchanged at Bank of Namibia. There is no problem with smaller denominations.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We have only praise for your service.
