Holiday review by David Cox

Date of trip: 15/06/2011
Number of people: 2
Country: Zambia

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Faultless in every aspect!"
Tribes Service: "Excellent"
Guides: "The guides (and scouts) were superb at all the camps. How these guys spotted some of the wildlife they did was really remarkable. The guides had a respect for the environment and the wildlife that was admirable."
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "As above - the guides did a wonderful job in showing the guests the wildlife but they all showed respect and empathy for the animals, especially if the cats were hunting. It was great to see this."


Chongwe River Camp
Chongwe was wonderful. Flossie, George, Joseph, Dion and all the others were fabulous company. The accommodation was superb and the food fabulous. A memory to cherish is the elephant crossing the Chongwe river - priceless!
Kaingo Camp
Where do I start? The wildlife as I said before was superb, we saw just so much. The guides we had there (Meyem, Noelle and Sylvester) were just the best, they absolutely worked their socks off to get us the best viewing possible - and they certainly suceeded. The camps at Kaingo and Mwamba are made so special by the wonderful people there and as great as the game viewing was, the holiday was made so special by the lovely people at both camps. Also special thanks to Izzy and Rob - just for being so hard working, considerate and fabulous!
Mwamba Bush Camp
Patrick and Brent at Mwamba were fabulous. Patrick seems to be able to magic leopards from everywhere and after eight years of looking I finally saw honey badgers - and not just one, we saw six of them over three days! Leopards, elephants, lions - you name it we saw it. Wonderful place, wonderful people. The night of sharing dinner with Jerry the elephant will live with me forever - and Brent was fantastic at handling the situation .. at no time did we ever feel in danger (indeed, we all continued to sit at the dinner table!!)
