Holiday review by Eleanore Breese-Laughran

Date of trip: 08/03/2012
Number of people: 1
Country: Zambia

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "From beginning to end, it was a great experience. (Well, maybe not the BA flights...)"
Tribes Service: "good decisions made for a trip at very short notice."
Guides: "The Guides were excellent without exception, particilarly Julius at Nkwali who took me out on my own. The other two visitors were much ,more into birds than I was and I was grateful for the break."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "My trip clearly profited the local people. I also brought out two sewing machines for the Salvation Army. British Airlines does not charge for this and the collection at both ends was very easy."


Luangwa River Camp
I was not crazy about the picture window in the bathroom as there were people walking by. They also needed to fix the shower head. But all this paled compared to the delicious food, the warmth of the welcome and the excellent guides.
Nkwali Camp
Vrery comfortable, delicious food and great guides. I loved the comfortable chairs at the edge of my chalet looking out towards the river.
Nsefu Camp
Bets of all for the animals that wandered through in the afternoons. Very comfortable chalets and I loved the porch for reading and watching the wildlife. The food was delicious and the guides delightful.
