Phil & Sue Fenning – Zambia & Malawi (Feb 2014)

A huge thank you for organising and booking our holiday to Zambia and Malawi, plus a big thank you for your super quick response whilst we were travelling to our request for a change in arrangements.

Our safari to Zambia was amazing and went without any hitches. Norman Carr Safaris, what can we say, WOW what a great company. For the first two nights we were up graded to their ‘flag ship’ new camp at Chinzombo !!!! Where we met Mario,  Mindy, Abs and the team. This was a lovely surprise in a beautiful setting with great attention to detail. We loved it and felt very spoilt!  But we were warned, (tongue in cheek)  it was all down hill from now on as we had started at the ‘best’  but we where highly delighted with ALL our accommodation. We were thrilled with everything they did for us, staff were all great, food was great, safaris excellent, making it all feel personal to us and therefore making us feel very special.  We enjoyed fantastic scenery and animals, TV documentary wildlife situations, we had to pinch ourselves far surpassing our expectations.  We both enjoyed every minute at each camp Chinzombo, Kapani and Kakuli (Kakuli probably being our favourite, where Aubrey shared his fountain of knowledge, which was incredible).

After a night at Kumbali Lodge in Lilongwe we headed up the lake shore road in Malawi to Chinteche Inn where we were treated like royalty and the staff simply could not do enough for us.  We went on a village walk visiting the local surgery, church, impaired hearing school, fishing villages etc which we thoroughly enjoyed, our guide (one of the waiters) was full of information. The rest of our stay at Lake Malawi was fantastic and we were really well looked after and sad to leave as we felt we could have stayed for a further 2-3 days. We left with very fond memories and we really do have Africa in our hearts now.

Thanks again for ALL your help.  We really did ‘live our dream’ so thank you for making it happen.
