“Close encounter with wild dogs--my first sighting, too! ” - African Queen

Tony's touch

African Queen

Booked a trip to Zambia last November and, after sending out a few emails to various tour operators using the Your African Safari Shaman feature, it was clear to me that Tony of Busanga was the one to go with.

I really wanted to see Kasanka and the bats but, at the time of booking, there were no tours to this park. As I was traveling solo, I needed to join others on safari and I needed to avoid single supplements. In the end, we went with South Luangwa and Kafue, in that order.

I have to say that South Luangwa exceeded expectations. I saw wild dogs for the first time and, because the rains were late, got to enjoy some wickedly hot weather--45C+ in the sun. I loved South Luangwa and plan to return.

I then headed to Kafue. Again, the rains evaded us and we were able to do some great drives here. What I really loved about Musekese is that I had a private drive (with one other very cool fella) every single time. I absolutely love the isolated nature of this park and, while the animal sightings were not nearly as numerous or varied like that of South Luangwa they were equally rewarding.

Lastly, I had a day room in Lusaka and Tony managed to get me one of the nicer rooms for a good rate. I am very glad I had the nicer room as the others don't have loos and I had an 8 hour stay here. I was able to kip in my room and not have to walk all the way back to the main lodge for the facilities. The food is also delicious here.

Thanks, Tony.
