As for us we had an amazing time in South Luangwa. And you can tell James that we continue to think of him (and his potential point of view on certain nature related topics in our Lusaka life) on a regular basis.
...we saw lions and leopards several times, including a leopard eating a freshly killed bushbuck 3 meters from us. We even witnessed a lion chase that ended in the lions chasing an elephant and jumping on his back 10 meters from our car - for once even the guides were amazed and excited. But nonetheless we would not want to miss our quiet days with James for one second: they were not less intense as so much more rich with detail, knowledge and love for the bush!

Very enjoyable, comfortable stay. Staff very friendly, game drives excellent, Francis our guide best out of all my visits (roughly around 8 to South Luangwa).
