My Oct 2018 trip

On this trip, I visited Zambia between 26-Oct-2018 and 5-Nov-2018 and I travelled alone.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

I enjoyed it very much despite the numerous bites I had at the end of the trip. S. Luangwa is a lovely park, amazing for leopard lovers. But it gets very hot this time of the year and hence, it is difficult to enthuse yourself and other guests to walk.

It was the first time to travel alone and I may say that I kind of liked it... I also liked the fact that the camps were pretty empty, I was only with one more guest. The downturn is that one of my fellow guests that I shared drive with she is an avid wildlife photographer, hence I had to compromise or stretch my patience often.... but as we say life is a compromise!

The night drives are interesting as well and it works out well as it gets dark by 6pm, so you can go about for an hour after the sun-downer before you return to the camp. You see wildlife that you wouldn't otherwise ( e.g beautiful genets)

If I return, most likely I will skip the Luangwa river camp.
