Efficient, knowledgeable and friendly
5/5

Our trip to the Luanga valley was planned three years ago but Covid delayed the trip. Sonja started helping with our plan over a year before our holiday and was always willing to adjust and respond to our rather complicated needs.

The end result was seamless from flights, to collection and delivery to airports as well as the detailed booking for our safari at Thornicroft lodge in the Luangwa and finally our flight from Mfuwe to Lilongwe.

It was a pleasure to do business with Ntanda ventures.

Excellent pre-purchase service, post-purchase service could improve
4/5

We contacted a few tour operators prior to booking with Ntanda. We found them easy to deal with, responsive and helpful in tailoring a safari itinerary that met our expectations and budget. They were willing to hold a video-conference with us to discuss options, which we really appreciated. The itinerary itself went off without any hitches. On that basis alone we would have awarded them a top rating. However after we had completed the transaction their service was less attentive. For example, Covid testing requirements to enter Zambia were dropped on March 23rd, however Ntanda only notified us about this on April 5th, by which time one of us had already taken an expensive and unnecessary test. Also, on April 9th we contacted them about the possibility of changing the time of an internal flight, and received an automated response but no follow-up. So in summary I would recommend Ntanda at a 4-star level.

Utter care and professionality
5/5

I traveled to Zambia with a friend in December 2021, on a trip organized by Kerry at Ntanda Ventures. I don't usually book with a travel operator but I decided to give it a try, and what a pleasant surprise it was. Kerry organized a one week trip that made us discover two of the best sites Zambia can offer: the South Luangwa National Park, and the Victoria Falls at Livingstone. In both sections of the trip, I really felt the attention to detail and the professionality of somebody who's been in the travel industry for long, knows the ins and out of the country, and knows how to handle unexpected changes a customer might face in light of the pandemic. My friend and I contracted a Covid infection just a week short of traveling to Zambia, and Kerry took care of rescheduling everything for us. On our way to the country, we read on the news that Zambia might put in quarantine, but Kerry was reassured us that it was not official news and told us exactly what to do at the border to have a smooth entrance into the country. Both the campsite at the South Luangwa NP and the hotel in Livingstone were marvelous and really made us feel us spoiled. Activities had been organized for us for every day, including game drives and a boat cruise, and we always had somebody from the two accomodations taking care of us, picking us at the airport and helping us during our stay, always with Kerry in the background for additional help. Overall, a great vacation and a great and professional tour operator. Thank you Kerry for your hard work!

A magical experience beyond imagination
5/5

Me and my friend Emanuele traveled to Zambia last December. Our trip was organized by Ntanda Ventures and we can't be more satisfied with the service. Kerry did an amazing job organizing large part of our itinerary. We visited the South Luangwa National Park (which became in my opinion one of the coolest national parks in southern Africa. After Luangwa we visited Victoria Falls, which was also a fabulous experience.

Kerry not only scheduled a plan that really suited what we wanted to see, but she was also the ideal tour operator. Even though Emanuele and I got covid some days before traveling to Zambia. Kerry took care of reorganizing the schedule in a marvelous way. We were able to visit Zambia a couple of weeks after and the experience could have not been better.

Thank you soo much for your hard work.

Simply FANTASTIC!
5/5

Ntanda Ventures is one of the most fantastic travel agencies! We booked a tour to Zambia (Kafue National park, Victoria falls and South Luangwa national park) through them.

Kerry and Christina helped us with everything from accommodation, special food orders, transfers between camps, flight tickets, PCR-test etc.!

I have travelled to South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Indien. However, this is definitely the best travel agency I've ever booked from.

I honestly feel like Kerry and Christina are my friends that I've never met in real life.

Thank you so much for your professional and loving help!

5/5

Living in Zambia for many years, I had been to a few places in the Valley, where my soul feels at peace.
Since finding Kerry and Ntanda Ventures everything is so easy!
My niece and her husband booked a trip with them and really saw Zambia!

Ntanda Ventures gave us excellent advice and organised a tour which ran seamlessly.
5/5

I exchanged numerous emails with Kerry and Christina, presenting my complex desires which needed to be executed in one short week! And they managed it perfectly. It all worked perfectly and seamlessly. The highlight was 3 days at Thornicroft Lodge near the Mfuwe reserve. Kelvin, our guide, had amazing knowledge of the game and the reserve. And Nadja and Dylan, the managers, were most helpful and caring. Thank you to you all - you made my " down memory lane' trip home to Zambia such a memorable time.

Best tour operator in Africa
5/5

Kerry and her team are best planners who find those unique experiences that only few locals know. Her knowledge of the lodges and tours in Zambia and Southern Africa is deep and extremely rare. Her team are the most responsive and go out of their way to solve some tough challenges we faced. I cant imagine using anyone else again.
