This is my first post here. I don't want to bash my agent, because I am still hoping to sort things out--but that seems increasingly unlikely. I'll also spare you the details of all that's gone wrong and just ask specific advice.

I found out that our booking in V. Falls has not been made. I requested this booking 2 months ago. We have already paid agent to make the booking. I am thinking at this point that I have to make the booking elsewhere--there is availability, and I got a quote from go2africa. There is also a problem re: one flight, which it turns out may have to be a charter, and may be more exspensive than he quoted us/we paid for. The camp operator in Zambia is willing to arrange, but I am worried that it will exceed what we agreed to pay.

Agent said he made wire transfer to the camps we're using, and they are waiting for it. They are proceeding with our booking as though it's coming, and I just pray that it comes through.

I have send myriad emails re: this over the past few weeks, and called, and still no response to me or the camps on these issues.

I am thinking of filing complaints with the BBB and/or ASTA. This will have to wait until after our trip, I suppose. Any advice on how to handle this situation? Thanks!!!
