Africa a real lifetime experience

"Our trip to Africa was a wonderful experience. Zambezi assured that our travel was well coordinated and reliable. The seven venues that we stayed at all had great lodging, food and hospitality. Zambezi travel partner Albatros Tours provided exceptional effort and customer service throughout our Safari. Would suggest have just one Zambezi focal point for communications during trip planning."

The service on the ground was impeccable from the beginning when we landed and Peter picked us up all the way to when Davis dropped us off in Tanzania.
