Took the Victoria falls extension. Badly researched. Customer services clueless about the extension. Wrong information given about Visas. The complete extension was done by another company but we were not told. The company knew nothing of Great Rail. Not met at the airport for transfer. Ten of us left to our own resources for an hour until helped by locals. 5 star hotel we were put in about a 3 star. Ran out of drink, linen, poor service at breakfast. Cold rooms no heating.
