Reviews for South Africa, Botswana and Zambia holiday


review 6 Jul 2017

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

Everyday brought new adventures and experiences - Very early morning starts meant we got to see lots of both sunrises and sunsets, sunset cruise in Zimbabwe brought us up close to wallowing Hippo's and a walking safari got as close to a crash of 7-8 Rhino and then walking in the vicinity of these beautiful animals. In Kruger a pack of very young Hyena were out of the den playing in daylight close to the road. Spray off Victoria Falls from both Zimbabwe and Zambia side before a micro-light flight over falls being the finishing highlight of this superb tour - and my wife and I got to fly wing tip to wing tip over the falls which made it even more special.

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

Good general camera with a decent zoom lense, gopro or similar camera for the more adventurous and to use at the falls as you get very wet from spray - Need to select the time of year for travel though - animals are in the long grass during wet season so difficult to spot but in dry season Victoria Falls is dry (hence we selected June as being best compromise for both). Definitely recommend doing micro-light over falls - not cheap and can't use own camera (can buy either video or photo's of your flight from wing mounted gopro) but the experience and views are something else.

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


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

10/10 - already planning next years trip back to Africa
