Holiday review by Catherine Frenzel

Date of trip: 12/07/2015
Number of people: 3
Country: Zambia

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Excellent"
Tribes Service: "Amanda's availability and advice gave us all useful information and confidence to prepare our travel"
Guides: "Guides at Kafunta are amazing - broad knowledge in animals, landscape, day-to-day life, social environment .... and even astronomy!"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Good"


Island Bush Camp
Amazing food, great people, beautiful location
Kafunta River Lodge
Very comfortable
Victoria Falls Hotel
Iconic hotel - beautiful view. One minus however regarding the service associated to the stable wing - where we stayed: the price for these rooms include a dedicated team to welcome us, arrange requests, etc. They have been really bad for the check-out, as they tried to "force" us to leave the room at 10, although they told us when arriving that they would arrange a late check-out for us, as we were due to be picked-up at 1 pm. They finally found out a solution, but after one hour of a mess. Let's say that comunication amongst team members could have been better!

Our Memories

"Having a shower in the middle of the bush, with the milky way and the southern cross as a ceiling!"
"Being woke up in the middle of the night by an elephant shaking palm trees located 2 meters from our chalet.... but finally managing to fall asleep again being confident that they are not interested by yourself!"
