Thank you so much for recommending Chiawa!!!
What a special place!  We had amazing wildlife experiences (lion kill in camp by a mating pair, hippos and elephants in camp every day, leopard in tree on the river and lots of other wonderful sightings on foot and by car and on the river.  I think the croc with the huge eel in its mouth was a first for me!).  Dave and Grant were there for part of the time and just wonderful to us.  The camp staff were terrific as well – so patient and helpful with the kids.  I think it was a life-altering experience for our friends, the Friedlands.   It took their kids some time to adjust to camp life, but they are raving to everyone back in New York about their first-ever trip to Africa and Zambia.   Although Peter and I and our kids have been on many safaris, this was one of the very best in terms of guides and wildlife.

Peter and the kids and I definitely hope to return next year – we are moving to Cape Town in January (schools are secured but still need a home!) and will be doing lots more travel around southern and east Africa.  Perhaps we can book Mombo far enough in advance to ensure a place – let us know the best time to be there.
I so appreciate your professionalism and guidance and hope to meet you at some point somewhere in Africa!

Best wishes,
