Over The Top

"Our safari experience was over the top fabulous. All of us were so amazed, thrilled and blown away by everything - the tent accommodations, the food and its presentation, and the staff were excellent. And, of course, Spike our guide was an unbelievably knowledgeable and patient guide. We had no idea how he could know what he did,,,the details - WOW. The love he has for what he does comes through in his enthusiasm as he speaks and tells stories. The details and small touches were so sweet. I particularly like the table decorating done by Beki for every meal. I would not hesitate to recommend Zambezi Safari and Travel to anyone."

BEST HOLIDAY EVER

"This is the second time we have used Zambezi Safari and Travel Company and again they exceeded our expectations. We were an adult family of 7 and had the best holiday ever. We loved Zimbabwe and found the people incredibly friendly and passionate about their country. Everything worked like clockwork and we stayed in some exceptional lodges both on the Zambezi River and in Hwange National Park. We were lucky to have an amazing guide for six days in Hwange and saw masses of wildlife as well as being immersed in bush life. I cannot thank Chris and everyone at Zambezi Safari and Travel Company for organising the best holiday ever and for giving us, as a family, such wonderful shared memories."
