Hippo Hugger

An amazing adventure which will live with us for years. We chose this holiday as a final holiday with my son and daughter before the latter goes to university. This was our first trip to Africa and not having done any camping since school this was well outside of my normal comfort zone. We wondered whether the photos in the gallery might have exaggerated the close proximity to the wildlife but they accurately reflected our experience. Within the first hour of canoeing we had seen elephants, crocodiles and hippos.

Excellent trip

A truely great travel adventure. The itinerary is full but it didn't feel too rushed, and there was the right amount and variety of activity for my 16 year old son not to get bored. We had a great time and everything we expected was delivered.

Zambezi Volunteer Experience

This is an absolutely brilliant trip. You get to feel properly adventurous but, at the same time, very well taken care of. The volunteering aspect makes it much more than just a holiday. And there is the added advantage that it can be fitted into a half term break. We took our two daughters (aged 12 and 14) and they loved it and want to go back.

ZAMBEZI VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE

A thoroughly enjoyable trip, well organised by friendly local people.  The canoeing can be hard work but help is always at hand if needed.  Wild camps with fires are relaxing and fun.

ZAMBEZI VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE

The description does not do justice to the itinerary - lots of game drives, walks and things to do.  You will see an awful lot of wildlife.  Not the 'big 5', but rather too many hippos, and plenty of elephants, crocs and impalas as well as more illusive species.We had a totally terrific time - real once-in-a-lifetime stuff.  I was expecting a sort of 'poor man's safari -  I've never been on a conventional safari staying at a game lodge in the Serengeti, but suspect this is a much more profound and stimulating experience, getting you much closer to the animals as well as the culture and the people.  Zambia is still under-developed as a tourist location, the Zambezi is an incredibly beautiful river, the itinerary was great and we couldn't have asked for more.  Take this holiday whilst you can and whilst the country, and the people, remain unspoilt.
