Rocco,

Thanks for all the exeter information. Sounds like a pretty wide area. Just that, from either Dulini or Leadwood or river lodge you can't access the kirkman's area... but, the western section of the SSGR is pretty good on it's own. Lots of guides/trackers from other lodges to spot various game species...

Hello,
I am happy to report that we have just booked a trip to Zambia visiting Vic Falls and Puku River Lodge. Couldn't have done it without all your help. One other question has come up. Does anyone know if there is a "left-luggage" or storage locker facilities at Jo'berg airport? We are coming from a cruise ship into Africa so will have more luggage than we want for our safari. Need to find a way to store it as we fly open-jaws into Zambia. Any suggestions?

Hi Mitch,

I posted a response regarding "left luggage" at the JNB airport on the other thread.

You are going to love Zambia.

Mitch - you made a good choice with Puku Ridge. We just got back from there last month, and my biggest regret of the entire trip was that we only book 2 nights at Puku Ridge. We had wonderful game viewing from our tent's balcony, almost any time of the day. And the tents are enormous! Food was great as well.

As to leaving your excess luggage behind, will you be overnighting at a hotel in J'burg? If so, they will probably hold your luggage for you. We did that at the Airport Grand Hotel (not so grand and not at the airport, but perfectly acceptable and reasonably priced). Sharon

>>>the Airport Grand Hotel (not so grand and not at the airport, but perfectly acceptable and reasonably priced)<<<

"Not so grand and not at the airport"

Probably will not be making it into their advertisements anytime soon!

However, this hotel does offer a great value and is near the airport.

Having just returned from Kruger Park area want to highly recommend the 3 camps we stayed at. Jackalberry Lodge in Thornybush, Ngala Game Lodge, Buffalo Camp in Kampala Reserve. All terrific with great animal viewing and gracious hosts. Even our daughter and 10 and 15 year old grands agreed. Everythins we ever dreamed of!
