“October/November is very, very, very hot especially in South Luangwa!” - SheilaA

A Dream Holiday to Zambia

Views: 460 Visited: Oct 2013 Reviewed: Nov 16, 2013

My husband and I wanted to go to Kafue National Park and South Luangwa and we reviewed camps in both areas. We came across Busanga Safaris as they avoided single supplements, because my sister-in-law was interested in coming with us. We sent an email to Tony outlining an itinerary and within half an hour Tony was on the ‘phone discussing our proposals and suggesting other alternatives to get the most out of our stay in Zambia.

We were very impressed by the speed of Tony’s response to our initial email and the personal service offered. His vast experience of working in Zambia and guiding helped us to decide on an itinerary. Tony kept in constant contact with us and when British Airways decided they were going to stop flights to Lusaka, Tony was on the ball and soon had our return journey re-arranged.

He organised our stay in four lodges, all of which were different and excellent. Busanga Plains camp was way above our expectations, and to see wild dogs on our transfer to the camp was a huge bonus. This was our ninth trip to Africa and was by far the best holiday for wildlife and lodges.

Tony even kept in contact with the lodges to make sure there were no problems.

The wildlife in the areas that Tony recommended was excellent: we had never seen so much variety. In three lodges, we did not even have to leave camp, as everything was happening in front of us: observing the conflict between lions and buffalo, hyena hunting a puku which had already been injured the previous night by a crocodile, observing the behaviour of animals and birds right in front of the lodge. We managed to see around 20 birds which were on our wish list, such as Carmine Bee-eaters and large flocks of African Openbills and Abdim’s Storks.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Busanga Safaris to anyone contemplating a safari.
