I thoroughly enjoyed the vacation.

Read the operator's response here:

On many trips, there is the opportunity for optional excursions which a client can undertake. While we suggest many activities travellers may like to try, there are also plenty that are not promoted, supported or endorsed by us. On this trip, particularly in the Victoria Falls area clients may notice businesses offering optional 'Walk with the Lions' or other big cat experiences. As a company, we recommend that our travellers bypass these activities as it is contrary to our Responsible Travel guideline stating that we 'actively discourage the participation of groups in activities which exploit animals - wild or domestic.' Professional wildlife conservation organisations, including Born Free and the World Society for Protection of Animals (WSPA), advise that habituating big cats to humans can shorten their life and may result in animal-human conflict issues. While there is some merit in the argument that the money that you pay for the activity goes towards big cat research, we feel that the negative impacts on the animals' rehabilitation far outweigh this.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The leader and his team were excellent and we all got on in the group. Seeing lions in Kruger was the highlight.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Ask if they are using a big truck ours was slower than other trucks hence journeys clocked up more hours than advised. Take a cushion or neck cushion for selling in the truck.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Yes we were very conscious of recycling and supporting NGO local initiatives.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Team leader A plus tzepol deserves promotion as he was enthusiastic and caring towards all his charges.

Through choosing to travel with us you are assisting local businesses, job creation, cultural development programs and various environmental groups.
