Client Rating for Zambia 5/5 from 53 reviews

What can one say about paradise? Elephants wandered through the camp and could be heard walking around at night. The ever-amusing hippo conversations sounded just outside, although were probably some way away and impala and bushbuck grazed close by. Animals abounded within the park - I've never seen so many on game drives - and on the way there. The driver I had throughout was very informative and excellent at finding places to watch animals. We saw lions and leopards, lots of birds and the night drives were very productive, including sightings of genets, mongooses, and a leopard stalking. The accommodation, food and facilities were excellent, and management and staff all really helpful. Another day, and I could have joined a vehicle going for a whole day drive, to a different part of the park; I hadn't realised that could have been an option but it would be a great thing to do.
