Costa Rica Traverse

The trip was an amazing experience. As expected it was physically tough but worth every drop of sweat and mud (no blood fortunately). For me personally, I found the heat hard to adjust to. I expected us to benefit from the shade of the rainforest more than we did and I guess going from a Scottish winter to an equatorial country didn't help. Having said that it didn't detract from my enjoyment, just made it harder work. We were also lucky because all 13 of us got on very well and it was a good mix of people. A special mention has to go to the guides and Danny in particular. I remember when we did the Cycling in the Andes that the guides were good but Danny was excellent. As well as being extraordinarily fit and knowledgeable about adventure stuff he was passionate about Costa Rica, it's environment and future. He had a great sense of humour and as if all that weren't enough he and his team were superb cooks. Although this wasn't everyone's idea of a relaxing holiday I came home envigorated and motivated with stacks of energy - apart from having to negotiate Terminal 5 on it's second day of chaos! I've already been on your website looking for the next potential challenge, if only work didn't get in the way.

Zambia

Zambia

Take an adventure holiday in ZAMBIA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

Sharing one of the seven natural wonders of the world and blessed with an abundance of wildlife, water and vast open spaces, Zambia offers a plethora of experiences for visitors. Victoria Falls, straddling the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is referred to by locals as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ - ‘the Smoke that Thunders’. The cascades, fed by the mighty Zambezi River can have up to 546 million cubic meters of water per minute tumbling over the edge at the height of the wet season. Zambia is also home to some wildlife-rich national parks like South Luangwa, which is renowned for large herds of elephant, hippopotamus and numerous prides of lion.

The Weather in Zambia

There are two main seasons, the rainy season(November to April) corresponding to summer, and the dry season (May to October/November), corresponding to winter. The dry season is subdivided into the cool dry season (May to August), and the hot dry season (September to October/November). The modifying influence of altitude gives the country pleasant subtropical weather rather than tropical conditions for most of the year.
