          Hi everyone I am really looking forward for a positive response on the query that I have. Our guests are visiting Zambia in a month and I wish to come with them by 2nd week of January 2017 but because its the rainy season and I am in a dilemma on the weather and the visibilty of the animals.I think it may not be the best time to come.Looking forward for your suggestions.

          Hi there...I just read your review of Kafunta river lodge. My husband and younger daughter (16) would like to safari next August...for the first time..do you think Kafunta would be a good place for a 5 day safari? Lots of places in Zambia seem to be for honeymooners and are very expensive. What do you think?
