Holiday review by Mr. Francis Wilkin

Date of trip: 27/09/2018
Number of people: 2
Country: Zambia

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Exceeded expectations. "
Tribes Service: "Chris was very helpful during the booking process. The Vamoos app was excellent. "
Guides: "They were all outstanding, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. "
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Appeared so, especially at Kaya Mawa"


Kaya Mawa
See comments above. It's not like a typical Caribbean or Indian Ocean resort with manicured lawns, expensive boutiques and loads of air conditioning. It's more like a guest house for a bygone era. And the food is amazing. The queasily would not be out of place Ina top London restaurant, but it's on an island that relies for an aged weekly tramp steamer for supplies. Incredible.
Waterberry Lodge
Perfect place to spend a couple of days at the start or end of a trip.
Wonderfully remote.

Our Memories

"Seeing the Falls, seeing our first leopards, a pair hunting together at night getting very close to catching an Impala (thrilling) and the whole laid back, slightly hippy vibe of Kaya Mawa which is very different to normal upscale tropical resorts with no fences or gates, locals mixing with guests on the beach, no locking doors or windows - wonderful. "
