Simon was an excellent guide. All the transport from Zambia and back was on time. The Falls were great and the walk through the Rain forest was lovely and Simon was very knowledgeable about the plants animals and insects. The cultural tour was very interesting and informative and made us realise how lucky we were. The High Tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel rounded off a really great day. We loved it.
