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."

We loved our trip and would recommend your service any time

"We had an absolutely fantastic time in Zim. Most lodges well chosen, Transfer very slick. One tiny little downside- we were asked for any special dates during our stay. The moment you are asked such a question and you pass on a celebration date you have an expectation that something is going to happen ... but it didn’t. The Victoria Falls Lodge is a beautiful building, great location, but strangely lacked some atmosphere at the same time. Maybe because the place is too big and full of travelling groups. Some of the staff were not very friendly - I didn’t feel welcome there. Wasn’t impressed with the food either. Watching the feeding of the vultures was amazing. Lodge in Kariba very nice, delicious food, best ice-cream and charming fellow guests. Weaving our own travel planes into your organised safari worked very well. Our canoe safari was breathtaking beautiful- the absolute highlight. A big thank you to your hardworking guides."
