He was friendly and told a lot about the country and the people.
3/5

The campsite was on an island, it was excellent: half-tent-half-house accomodation, campfire in the evening and some wine:) The "room" was also more than okay, better than expected (from an island without any electricity). Both David the operator and the staff were nice, I cannot say a wrong word to them. The reason why I rated to average comes from 2 reasons: according to the description "Travelling time from Lusaka to Camp takes approximately 4 hrs 30min to 5 hrs." while it was rather 6-7 hours (not counting the switch of the flat tire); so practically almost 1+1 days spent with just being on road. The other was that we almost did not see any wild animal (at the very end luckily we caught a leopard). Though I know it's rather an question of luck and for that the safari crew is not to blame, but still it was then bit of a disappointment.

Thank you Laszlo for the review, it was wonderful to host such wonderful people like you and your girlfriend.

What affected the entire travel time was traffic when leaving Lusaka because of Lumumba road which is under construction, the stopover for Lunch midway and the off road section in Kafue national park which has been affected by trucks that had used that road.

Not seeing big game more especially Lions was disappointing although as you have stated its a matter of Luck.
Several Lions prides would roar but were elusive.
The two nights safari did not gift us with enough big game sightings, usually the more nights spent the more sightings you see


Despite the big game disappointing the small game were graceful as you saw impala's, puku's, waterbuck's, bushbuck's, warthog's, sable, hartebeest, birds, crocs, hippos, monitor lizard on the river, smaller nuctunal animals, Leopard on the game cruise and another on your way out.

We hope the wilderness will be more graceful next time with more big game sightings.

We enjoyed your company and are humbled to have met such wonderful people like you and your girlfriend.
