excellent service in planning an amazing trip

"They listened to what our ideal itinerary was and put together a first class experience for us. The accommodations were excellent in all 3 places that we stayed and the travel schedule including shared private charters was seamless.The communication with Mark was quick and efficient in answering questions and responding to requests. They gave us a detailed itinerary including useful information about visas, currency, packing list etc which made our trip a lot easier. I would definitely use them again for future trips."

Incredible Canoe and Safari Experience

"My entire trip door to door was well organized by them including airport pickup and return, 3 Band B stays are very nice places, 2 canoe trips and a 3 day visit to Mana Pools. Each step of the way was handled very professionally. My correspondence with them was handled quickly. I would use them again."

Very helpful staff who provided a personal service

"Zambezi travel sent an email straightaway to confirm receipt of my original enquiry and then Angela responded very promptly after that and was very helpful in helping us book our helicopter flight. The local tour company in Zambia which operated the flights were able to pick us up at our hotel and drop us off again afterwards. The flight was absolutely amazing and worth every penny! It's definitely the best way to see Victoria Falls."

great experience

"Great help with planning and organizing the trip. They definitely made it easy to do a self drive tour. Just would have preferred they'd called when the car was going to be late for dropoff. Also would suggest doing a tour at Etosha instead of self driving since you see way more animals than you would doing it yourself"

Impeccable service!

"Your service is impeccable. Liz and team were quick to respond each time and beyond patient with all of my questions. I had a travel partner that was difficult to coordinate with, and they were great at managing getting all the information they needed from her too! I can't say thank you enough for setting up a trip of a lifetime for us and making the booking process a smooth and enjoyable one."

Absolutely The Best Travel Agent

"Absolutely the best possible service, from email queries and concerns and bookings to the execution of the trip details. I've gone on three African adventures, with a fourth in planning stages. Char at Zambezi also was great with details and support. The third safari I went on was with a small group and we all agreed on how smoothly everything was going, from airport pickups to delivery, rooms, food, flights, and game drives. I could go on and on with excited praises..."
