Just completed a 4,5 day (4 - 8 Aug 12) walking safari under the guidance of Deb Tittle (RPS). It was an unforgettable experience and to be absolutely recommended if you are looking for an adventure with lots and lots to learn regarding to Africa's wildlife secrets.

Deb is an excellent guide with years of experience, 100% attuned with her team and totally focused on her guests. Safety was the first and utmost consideration but did not deter us from tracking (and regularly sighting) lions for 2 days. Each sign, track and hint of activity was pointed-out, clearly described and explained in context.

We were accommodated in rustic but very comfortable fly-camps in tents pitched in the most picturesque positions, allowing for safety and privacy. Beautiful beds, linen and all, with amenities closely on hand made for great camps in totally different settings each of the 4 nights we spent on the trek.

The mobile bar with whatever you could wish for and well decorated dining tables, hot showers on call (within 5 minutes of Deb's "shower whistle") and freshly dug toilets, all in total bush-privacy, rounded-off a perfect experience.

The support team was absolutely sterling in their attentiveness, yet virtually invisible. It truly felt as if we were the only people in Africa throughout the walk.

If you are looking for 5-star luxury and "bling" - this is not it. If you are after an experience where you will truly learn about the African bush, being served sumptuous meals of the highest quality and having cake in the veldt with your tea, do consider this adventure with RPS.

Room Tip: All tents have views.....

We stayed in their Nkwali camp for a couple of nights then did a 5 night walking safari in the north of the camp before returning to stay at Nsefu camp (while Tena Tena is being moved slightly).

All were great but the walking safari is superb - there were just three of us and one was made to feel to feel special. What really makes that stand out out though is the way that we got close to 'nature' - stalking animals, analysis droppings (!), learning tracks, examining termit nests etc, and of course sighting animals!

Room Tip: Just a tent but very clean and in good condition with a proper mattress on a camp bed.

We went to River Lodge 19 to 24 sept 2011, the camp and staff were superb.
We drove across the river every day to access the park it made a delightful start and end
to each game drive or walk.
Alison from UK is the manager and Tom from Belgium is the under manager. They run the lodge so that we felt like really appreciated guests, the food was excellent but not exotic. Other guests who had came from other lodges and camps said they felt this one was great. We stayed for 5 nights there and we were never bored and saw the big 5 (minus Rhino) plus lots of other game.
The guides are Victor and Braston, both very knowledgeable and able to find lots of game, they were also cheerful and enthusiastic.
All staff were positive, friendly and helpful. We have been to the Kruger and also Tsavo in Kenya, this Park and lodge were better.
We are in our mid 60's so the lack of a disco did not worry us.

Room Tip: They are all good but room 1 is nearest to the bar.

Absolutely unforgettable experience! Perfect! First, they surprised us at Mfuwe Airport with an open jeep ride to the "Lungawa House." It was a great experiance to see some how some of the locals lived and see a few impalas on the way. The food at camp was just like what you would find at a five star hotel! The room was amazing! The trip was amazing and I'm going back for sure! If you love nature and you want to relax in a nice quiet place while observing gracefull animals, Zambia is the place for you! If you are more of a big city kind of person you most likely would not like it as much.
