Both Dave Carson and Nick Murray were very skilled, professional guides. Dave has a joy for his work that is contagious. He was excited about wildlife whether it was a guinea fowl or a lion. We saw many animals - learned about tracking - and hiked many miles with Dave and his tracker, Felix. Dave' camp crew was wonderful - great meals in difficult conditions - they were always very helpful with any problem.

Nick Murray certainly knows the Zambezi River and how to get to older, inexperienced paddlers safely down the river.

Accommodation Experience Rating: 

Accomodation: 

The arrangements and connections were great. The African Rock hotel provided a very restful spot to recover from jet lag. Our guide, Robert, for Johannesburg was very friendly and knowledgeable about South Africa and Johannesburg. The stay at Davison's Camp was very enjoyable and a great break (with a shower) between Hwange and Mana Pools.
