We walked from Mchenja on one occasion for one and a half hours and for three hours on another occasion. The heat and our age had made us doubtful initially, but the walking was fairly relaxed and very worthwhile.
The service from the attentive staff was outstanding. Full praise must go to the knowledgeable guides who were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Each place we stayed in was a real little paradise in the wilderness.
The food on the mobile camp was real cordon bleau- exceptional, especially when they had to cook in a pit in the ground- all without electricity. Wherever we had our overnight stops, everything was done to make us comfortable and safe. Praise must go to all the staff for the attention to even the smallest detail.
Josephat our guide in Luangwa was particularly patient and helpful with Michael, our grandson.
