Cuckoo Safaris, we are a tour operating company, operating in Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Zambia. We focus much on Safari packages and private packages like around Zimbabwe packages from the famous Victoria Falls the world of adventure, private Safari experience in Hwange national park, Matobo Hills, Mana Pool, Gonarezhou, Great Zimbabwe to the shining city of Harare the capital.
Cuckoo Safari provided a perfect adventure for us!
Our adventure from beginning to end was spectacular! We chose the 8 day Tour arriving in Harare, traveling on to Ancient City of Zimbabwe, then onto Hwange and finishing in Victoria Falls. Each day we saw and learned interesting, wondrous things and information. Our guide Simon Peter Dube attended to every detail & ensured a seamless and happy trip. Our time included historical, archaeological and cultural aspects as well as multiple game drives. We saw so many animals living their daily lives, even now reviewing our photos I am awed. Our accommodations were lovely and the food tasty. The only improvement for us would have been to stay at a lodge in Victoria Falls instead of the elegant hotel closest to the falls as the guests seemed reticent to interact unlike those staying at our previous locations. Thank you Simon and Cuckoo Safaris for the trip of a lifetime!
Great guides and a very enjoyable week in Botswana.
We really enjoyed our trip with Cuckoo Safaris! Our booking process was smooth and the office staff we dealt with were very responsive, enabling us to book a trip that met all our needs with relatively short notice. All the guides we had during the trip were great, very friendly and helpful - local tour guides ran most of the activities during the day in each place which meant we had people who were local to and/or knew the area well which was good. We loved the itinerary of the tour we did also - a really good mix of different safari days (drives, mokoro trip, river cruise, walking, etc) as well as other activities/sights (like seeing baobabs, salt pans, etc) which was what we were looking for. Overall we had a great week trip in Botswana and would recommend Cuckoo Safaris to other travellers.
Seamless & Spectacular Safari!
My family and I absolutely loved our extended day tour to Chobe National Park with Cuckoo! To be fully transparent, though we booked with Cuckoo and they drove us to the Botswana border, the tour was actually provided by Puku Safaris - as I understand it, they have some partnership and work together. Either way, it was a marvelous experience and I highly recommend the extended day - yes it means getting up before the crack of dawn and it's a marathon of a day - but it's so worth it for the wildlife experience. We lucked out by seeing not only one lion but an entire pride. There must have been close to 20 lions! It seemed like we were able to stay twice as long as the other tours there because we had more time to spare. We also got up close with giraffes, elephants - SO MANY ELEPHANTS - and on the river cruise, crocodiles. Our guide Cobra was fabulous - he seemed to be a local celebrity the way everyone knew him. He was funny and informative. The buffet lunch was delicious. Cuckoo/Puku made the experience - including crossing over into Botswana - seamless. The staff at Cuckoo was very communicative and answered my (many) questions prior to the trip. I could not have imagined a better day trip safari!
Excellent very accommodating great customer service and knowledge
I took my 13 year old son for his birthday to a safari in Zimbabwe and Botswana organized by Cuckoo Safari we had a long list of wishes including:
Seeing the lions that kill elephants in Hwange and Chobe, seeing wild dogs cheetahs and leopards , rare antelopes like sable roan and tsessebe , flying over the Okavango delta and watching elephants swim… they made all that happen while staying in great accommodations and for a reasonable price. I highly recommend them
Would definitely use Cuckoo Safaris again!
We only had a week so reached out to Cuckoo to create an itinerary so see as much variety as possible. Tatenda Tarzan was excellent! Communication was very fast and knowledgeable. He suggested a couple changes that worked perfectly for us. We wanted to go to church while visiting and he even went the extra mile and contacted a church member to pick us up for the service and was able to communicate with them before going which was very helpful. They offer airport pick up and return and the groups are smaller than most. That was one of the main reasons I chose them initially.
Having Cuckoo for the entire week was great. We had the same driver most of the days and Luwis is THE BEST! He is now a forever friend and went beyond so many times not only for us but other clients we had a safari with.
We enjoyed all the tours and safaris, the Safari guides are so knowledgable its amazing how much they know. TK at Hwange National Park catered to our interests and we learned so much. Also a shout out to Cedric at Stanley & Livingstone Private Game Reserve; he used old-fashioned tracking to guide us, and was a pleasure to visit with.
I could go on, but won’t. We would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend Cuckoo Safaris.
