Zambezi Expedition is a tour operating company based in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe which is the hub for tourism in the country. Its owners are 100% Zimbabwean tourism and hospitality talented professionals with knowledge in each destination and services in this region. In the year 2016 we decided to have our own tour company by the name “Zambezi Expedition Travel and Tours.” with the mandate of specializing in the tourism market. Over and above, we have contracts with many hotels and tourism organisations within the country.
Tour as discribed on website with bus driver being outstanding.
Communications with the tour operator was always quick, clear, and extemely polite. The accommodations in Victoria Falls were different than originally descripted but were very comfortable and updated. The Hwange Safari Lodge was as well maintained and a great place to stay. A large watering hole is adjacent to the lodge attacted many animals. Herds of elephants were the most thrilling to watch.
We had different local guides but our bus driver was the same throughout the tour. He was available to take us most anywhere we wished to go - dinner, shopping, etc. Was always on time. He added a lot to our fun and enjoyment/
The entire safari/Victoria Falls tour exceeded our expectations. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the walk along Victoria Falls. It felt rushed with little time to just stand and enjoy. We would definitely use this tour operator again.
How to exceed your expectations in selecting a Safari
I chose Zambezi Expedition because it met my desire to go to both Victoria Falls and Botswana for safari. the communications with Zambezi were easy and accommodating. The representative who responded to my initial inquiry was Simon, who was friendly understood what I wanted to experience and said he would prepare an itinerary. I was so pleased how quickly it was completed and frankly the only changes I had to make were to be able to add nights at the beginning and end to accommodate my flight schedule. We worked back and forth and here is the best: Simon and I were both on the cell phone application, "What's App", so we actually talked often to each other, and he was very respectful of the time difference (I am on West USA cost), some 9 hours difference.
As time for my travel approached, I was contacted several more times, just to assure me that all was in order. I was told I would be met at the airport, and that I would be provided all transfers and return to the airport, all included. That was a relief to me.
When I arrived and got through passport control, visa purchase for Botswana, and customs. Sure enough there was my name on a placard, and got assistance with my bags and off we were on this great adventure. I was introduced to the owner, Oscar who was very friendly and all through stay, kept in communication with me.
Accommodations were excellent, food at the hotels were terrific, especially in Botswana.
The day I arrived, I settled in and was soon met by the tour staff and off we went for a twilight cruise on the Zambezi River. Needless to say it was wonderful, with a spectacular sunset. We were provided snacks (more like a meal) and drinks, both alcohol and non-alcohol. It seems as though my camera never stopped clicking.
While staying in Victoria Falls, I was provided a guide to tour the Falls at the National Park. The guide was extremely knowledgeable of the Falls, its history and landmarks. I was very impressed. Of note is that I hardly had to every use a taxi and the tour company was always ready to take me places.
After three nights, I was driven to Botswana and took in two days, two river cruises and two game drives. All were prearranged and there was very little waiting time. the people there were very welcoming and efficient. the opportunity to see the animals and water features and birds was a dream come true for me, and it was a better experience due to the planning of Zambezi Expeditions. My bags were waiting for me when I got back from the cruise. The remaining cruise and two game drives were fantastic, getting to see such beauty up close and at the hands of competent and talented staff.
All in All I am happy to recommend Zambezi Expeditions for a Safari experience. You cannot find a better choice.
I was driven back to Zambezi after two days in Botswana
Amazing, Best, Tour Experience Ever!!!
Oscar is an amazing travel agent. He goes above and beyond for any of his customers. We booked a Zambezi cruise with Oscar and he made sure he brought his personal driver to take us to and fro. We didn’t have to worry much booking with him because You pick the tours you want and the time and date and someone is always there to pick us up at our hotel. I was so amazed how friendly, affordable, and organized Everything was. So, when we decided to do our second tour, we made sure to book with Oscar again. We chose Chobe River Cruise which included a cruise on the the Chobe River, a fun safari, and a delicious lunch. Everything came out more than we expected. My friend and I had such wonderful experiences, we decided to book our third and final adventure, Devil’s pool. It was the best adventure and everything Oscar promise, he delivers. But, beyond my business experience, Oscar was more than a travel/tour agent. He is an amazing person!! I had forgotten my cell phone when I was at the airport. I contacted Oscar to see if he can call the Victoria Falls (where Devil’s pool) was located. I thought I left my phone there. Oscar not only looked for my phone at Vic Falls, but my hotel (which was where I forgotten it) as well. Oscar did not once hesitate to help. And that is why we booked all our tours with Oscar! He is such an honest person in all my dealings, but I never met a wonderful person as Oscar, who would go out of there way to deliver great tour experiences and helped get my phone. You will not regret booking with an honest, reliable, and great man like Oscar!! I’m so grateful that you made our trip enjoyable and memorable! You’re the man, Oscar!! Thank you!!
Every African Countries has its own uniqueness
I had one of the best and life time experience in Zimbabwe and Botswana, hosted by Saimon and Oscar. As a solo traveler, its always finding difficulties and challanging to organize the safaris and travel packages. Fortunately had an effective communication with Saimon and his team managed very well, from the arrival to the departure. He was very flexible in organizing my tour as I love wild life photography, so I spend additional 2 more days in Chobe National Park. The Victoria falls was beautiful, on every angle. Chobe National park, preferred to do evening game drives, as you can see lots of animals and also had a fantastic boat drives on Chobe river. I always prefer to choose camping tour, for its own uniqueness(stay with nature). But the camping in Chobe safari Lodge was the best out of all... it was splendid. Definitely will do again with my family, as they will really love it.
