"Luwi Bushcamp review"

3 nights Arrived 3 Sep 2010
"Camp was just fine. Just that Nkosi and Botswana trip were very "hard act to follow"

[Ed: This comment refers to the fat that these travellers started their trip with us with a 12-day Botswana safari organised through our Wild about Africa programme. They rated this as "excellent", and their Botswana guide, called Nkosi, as "**AWESOME**" ]"

"Nsolo Bushcamp review"

2 nights Arrived 6 Sep 2010
"Again Nsolo was fine. We were just a bit spoiled from the driving safaris since we saw a lot less wildlife while walking.

Shaddy [Ed: the guide here] was excellent."

"Kakuli Bushcamp review"

2 nights Arrived 8 Sep 2010
"Highlight of our Zambian stay, Night drives were superb.

Aubrey is a great guide. In the that context should add on our first night at Kakuli (Sep 8, 2010) there was an incident when our safari vehicle, driven by Aubrey was (briefly) stuck in the sand while we wanted to get a better and closer viewer of a pride of lions. One of the other tourists in the vehicle (an English lady whose name I don't remember) became very agitated and in the following days requested a different guide (which she got) and said the Aubrey acted in an "unprofessional" manner during the incident.

I am concerned that she might have passed her opinion to the management at Norman Carr and that this might have a negative impact on Aubrey's situation. In particular, I want to say that my wife and I were present for the entire (brief) time while the vehicle was stuck and that during that entire time we can say with confidence that Aubrey acted in a 100% professional and appropriate manner. Not for a moment during that time did I feel unsafe or frightened. If you want more details from me about this, please feel free to contact me. On the other hand, if the hypersensitive lady never did register a complaint to you than do feel free to completely ignore these comments.

I have also sent an email to Norman Carr regarding this."
