Very personal service, felt like we were in really good hands.

"We went to Botswana and Zimbabwe on a custom-made tour. Everything ran smooth, and we were extremely satisfied. The Company even got in touch with us when flights that we booked by ourselves got canceled. Very good Service."

Great safari!

"Mark Pearson and Clare Moller at Zambezi arranged a wonderful Zambia safari for me, including three nights canoeing on the Zambezi River and two nights at Chongwe Lodge located near the entrance to Lower Zambezi National Park. The local river guide that they hired for me was really outstanding, as was the paddler/toter who also came along with us, and all arrangements for the canoes, tents and meals were great. I also had a great time at Chongwe Lodge doing canoeing, Jeep safaris and a half day walk in the Park. Chongwe sits in a great spot for viewing animals. Everything about this safari was carefully planned by Zambezi and ran very smoothly end to end, from car pick up at my hotel in Lusaka to drop off at Royal airfield for the flight back to Lusaka. Thanks Zambezi."

A Brilliant trip!

"Service was really helpful, all done by email. Advice from Helen and Chris on the places we would see our hoped for wild life proved excellent. Good guides in both camps, accommodation good, food wonderful. They even gave us the best weather. We saw every possible animal from cheetah to giraffe."
