Southern Africa Safari - help please!

My partner and myself would like to do a safari taking in the following places-

Hwange
Mana Pools
Lower Zambezi N.P.
South Luangwa

Can anyone recommend a good safari operator/company who can organise such a trip. Or maybe I need to use 2 different operators using 1 for Zimbabwe and 1 for Zambia? We prefer our accommodation to be "comfortable" without needing to be first class. All help and advice greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if CCAfrica travels through these area but I used them for Southern Africa and they are a wonderful group. Reliable and great environmental conservation organization! If they can't help you they will recommend a reputable company.

you can try sharon or julian at timelessafrica.com (both are posters here) Julian arranged my Hwange trip, and Sharon has quite a bit of knowledge/contacts in Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa or fiona at ngoko.com (a U.K./Zim based company) Benson works with ngoko and is probably the second best guide in all of Zimbabwe (His brother Foster is #1) There are many other agents/companies but I recommend these.

Check out Chris ; his email addy is: Chris @ Zambezi.com. he is a tour operator and while I don't leave till next month, he has put together my dream trip. A bit spendy, but that's life in the bush. This trip is soley in Zambia.

Good luck, tell him you've chatted to me on line. My name is Carol

When I was considering Zambia and Zimbabwe, my TA at Africa Adventure Company was very knowledgeable. His name is Kyle, but the information really came from his office/teammate from Zimbabwe (who I seem to recall used to be a guide). Unfortunately, I don't remember his name.

Another option is Premier Travel, out of Philadelphia: premiertours.com. Run by Julian Harrison, a knowlegable Southern African who has been in business for many years. But please talk to several companies before you decide.
