Our customers Reviews Photos

"Chris was helpful, honest and transparent. Of all the companies I got bids from, this one did not play games. They gave their best price, listened to our notions about what a safari should be and provided a solution right away. I really felt they were looking out for our interests and not trying to make it a negotiation - which ALL of the other companies did. Chris lives in Vic Falls and has an excellent reputation. Camp Hwange team told me that he visits regularly - so his thoughts are not rhetoric or second hand. The camp was amazing My family of 4 were welcomed with open arms and treated like royalty. We don't expect first class treatment and didn't quite know how to handle it (in a good way). Andy, our tracker, was a knowledgable leader and our group of 6 was a team. We all were grateful and happy to have picked this camp. Andy created an interactive, fun experience and we all left with tears in our eyes and hugs. Really, really special. All of the details were included in the price - transfers, events, accommodations and safari time including commentary on walking safari, night safari and time in vehicle. Everything Chris said was 100%. I can't recommend them more."

Helpful, responsive travel agent organized fabulous trip.

"We just completed a fabulous 8 days in Zimbabwe organized by Zambezi Tours. Liz and Jane did a great job putting together an itinerary to suit our interests and budget. The service putting together the itinerary was top notch and we were pleased with everywhere they sent us. Saw tons of animals in Hwange and Chobe and did a great rafting trip in Vic Falls. Highly recommended!"
