We have rented a 4x4 safari open vehicle for 5 days in South Luangwa. Ben, has been helping us, in the rental. He has reviewed our plan before the trip and suggested modification that matched our budget. Dealing with the personal touch was probably the best experience that we had in Zambia. The planning, the payment options, the safari guide and the manager (Ben) - all are exceptional and they will help you spend an amazing time in South Luangwa.
We rented a vehicle from Ben and Nathalie and had a great experience. They provided helpful planning information via email prior to the trip as well as when we arrived. Very organized, timely and professional. The vehicle ran great with no issues. I would highly recommend the Personal Touch if you plan to rent a vehicle in South Luangwa.
I can highly recommend Ben and The Personal Touch for your rental car needs . We were a group of 5 persons and fitted perfectly into the Toyota for our self drive safari in South Luangwa National Park.
The Personal Touch website provides information on the rental agreement as well as tourist information. Ben went out of his way to ensure we fully understood the terms and conditions as well as providing useful tourist information for our visit to Mfuwe and South Luangwa National Park. All arrangements and payment went according to plan without problem. Some days we would pack a picnic lunch and spend the whole day in the park. Other days after spending the morning in the park we would drive into Mfuwe for lunch at Tinta's before returning to the park in the afternoon. Having our own vehicle was a more economical option for our group and gave us flexibility. Ben gave us the personal touch and our car rental experience was very good.
Enjoy your self drive safari. Best wishes from Gary
Tips = It is a good idea when choosing travel insurance to purchase a policy that covers the rental car insurance excess. Your credit card is required when collecting the car and signing the contract. Bring your binoculars. The ATM in Mfuwe is not always working.
“We have had such an amazing time - Lamech was absolutely FABULOUS. Such a BRILLAINT guide and soooo good with the kids too. Our game drives were awesome. Last night we saw wild dog kill, lion kill and a leopard cub. Honestly it was amazing. So glad your company was recommended to us! Thank you so much!”
