Brilliant holiday, we need to go again to see Leopards.

"Everything was well organised. Accommodation was great, staff were friendly, we felt safe and there was lots of lovely food. We felt very safe at both parks. Great guides. Travel between parks was well organised. Batonka Guest house was lovely and relaxing, with good food on a limited menu. We would definately recommend people visiting the falls go on a helicopter flight - amazing. Only draw back was immigration at Victoria Falls - they did not have any Kaza visas - said they had stopped them but others on an earlier flight had them - so therefore they had run out and we had to pay for the more expensive double entry visa. It also took several hours and then our visit to the Falls felt rushed,"
