"Getting away from it all"

I visited Zambia between 8 Oct 2016 and 18 Oct 2016
"North and South Luangwa are my favourite parks in Africa, and I've been to a few. A ten-day break, with no access to email or news, felt like a month away from the messy world we live in." Read full review: 10 nights in Africa; 9 on a Zambia safari

"Excellent return trip to Zambia"

I visited Zambia between 5 Sep 2016 and 23 Sep 2016
"There was no-one to meet us at the airport when we arrived at Lusaka. We scoured the airport and found someone from Tours Africa but he said that they had not been asked to pick us up. After speaking to what seemed to be everyone in the Airport the Tours Africa rep came back and apologised and said it was entirely their fault and then took us to the hotel but we wasted over half an hour.

Tsetses were an issue, as we can both react badly to them. Much worse in South Luangwa than last time and we had one particularly bad Tsetse walk in North Luangwa. We were expecting them in Kafue - Musekese was better than expected, Busanga Plains much worse. All the camps were free of tsetses.

Disappointing that information on the Expert Africa website is inaccurate. Overall service from Expert Africa was very good, as usual. However......although the wallet is better than the old one, I still think it is daft to give people a wallet every time they travel - I won't use it again and it will join the other 2 wallets in my desk drawer. A shirt would give Expert Africa free advertising as well as being useful for the recipient (I've mentioned this before but it fell on deaf ears!).

I also think you should ask if people want a copy of Zambia before you sent it. When I got mine I thought it was a new edition but found it was identical, so it went straight to recycling." Read full review: 18 nights in Africa; 18 on a Zambia safari

"excellent return trip to Zambia"

I visited Zambia between 18 Sep 2015 and 2 Oct 2015
"It was our 7th visit and we loved it all.

Remote Africa Safaris has a fine combination of bushcamps, excellent and flexible guides, similar good food at all isolated camps and the constant attention from John & Carol Coppinger. Superb unpretentious safari. We walked for 11 out of 13 days , with good night drives at Tafika. Talking with other visitors, and our own experience over the years this remains The Top Spot for Luangwa.

Happy days!

"South & North Luwanga - August 2015"

I visited Zambia between 4 Aug 2015 and 18 Aug 2015
"This trip was beyond our expectations (which were very high!). Fabulous wildlife viewing, superb and friendly camps, smooth transfers and first class guiding all added up to a trip which left us wanting to book another visit even before we left.

Our thanks to all at Remote Africa Safaris for making our visit so special - and to Expert Africa for their advice and making all the arrangements

I visited Zambia between 1 Jun 2015 and 21 Jun 2015
"What a fantastic trip!

Expert Africa, and particularly my primary contact there, Megan, were patient and extremely helpful in putting together this itinerary. I spoke with Megan many times over the phone regarding the trip and she was always a pleasure to work with.

I will not hesitate to work with Expert Africa for my upcoming trips to Africa, and would HIGHLY recommend their services!" Read full review: 20 nights in Africa; 18 on a Zambia safari

"North and South Luangwa- WOW!"

I visited Zambia between 25 Oct 2014 and 7 Nov 2014
"My first venture into the North park was special and very private. South Luangwa never let's me down and the safari experience seems to get better every time.

Both NCS and RemoteAfrica provide the highest level of comfort and guiding and everyone should be proud of what they have achieved in provided this grand level of friendly service. Special thanks also to Mindy, very professional in every aspect in the daily running at NCS.

South Luangwa still my favourite game reserve/national park in Africa and one of my favourite places to visit in the world.
Thanks again to Ellie and all at ExpertAfrica.

"My Jul 2014 trip"

I visited Zambia between 8 Jul 2014 and 21 Jul 2014
"We only wish it could have been longer! Time seemed to fly by. Marks out of 10 for the whole trip - 11!

We would be hard pressed to suggest improvements on an already excellent service.
