Sonja and no one else for a Zambian trip

Sonja is already super available throughout the creation of the itinerary. She is attentive to the wishes and type of travelers (we were traveling with a baby and she planned frequent breaks on our route)
She was available during the trip as well to make last minute changes. She even helped us with administrative procedures that we had to undertake following an error on our part. A real rare pearl with foolproof effectiveness!!! Thank you from the heart !!!

Really listening to us clients resulted in a tailor made, amazing experience - outstanding service!

Sonja from Ntanda Ventures went a hundred extra miles in designing a unique stay for us in South Luangwa. Booking with her was great: reacting in no time, answering all our questions, thinking ahead, making great suggestions. Thank you so much!

Excellent personalised service resulting in an wonderful trip to Zambia.

I was searching for an add on to a pre planned bush camping trip in Botswana and sent out numerous requests through Safari Bookings with a wide open request to travel onto a neighbouring country with just my finish date in Botswana , the date of my flight out to France from SA and a limited budget. Travelling as a solo female this kind of request proves difficult to fulfil and Sonja from Ntanda was the only person to respond positively. She suggested Zambia and worked along with my personal preferences and interests to plan a wonderful itinerary for me. I found her friendly and obviously dedicated to providing the best service possible not forgetting that she had to deal with the daily power outage disrupting her working schedule! From Victoria Falls where my Botswana trip ended I was picked up by a driver and taken over the border into Livingstone where I spent 4 night at Victoria Falls Waterfront in fixed tent accommodation. This was a great value for money stay with plenty of trip and adventure options. My days were pre booked by Sonja and I thoroughly enjoyed all the experiences. In the evening I sat eating dinner and watching the magnificent sunsets over the great Zambezi River. It is a very pleasant vibrant setting enjoyed both by locals and tourists. From Livingstone I flew to Mfuwe and onto another 4 night stay at Thornicroft Lodge at the edge of South Luangwa Park. Another riverside lodge with hippos, elephants and crocodiles to watch. Again Sonja had planned my days and everything went smoothly and exceeded all expectations. The game drives morning and night with just me and the driver/guide were always an adventure and I thoroughly enjoyed the visits to 3 local community projects. Painting my own cushion cover @ Tribal Arts was a highlight and a wonderful souvenir of the trip. Highly recommend visiting Zambia and asking for Sonja @ Ntanda Adventures to plan it. She did an AMAZING job. Thank you.

Very helpful in all areas.

Ntanda Ventures have helped us on various occasions with safari bookings - from suggestions for accommodation through to the full booking process. They have never disappointed us and were always reliable and very helpful. Communication has always been very good. We are very happy with their services.

Ntanda Adventures was fantastic to work with.

I had been working with Denise at Ntanda Ventures. Our trip was very last minute and she was able to put together a fantastic itinerary. It was truly and unforgettable trip. Denise made everything so easy and ws in constant contact with me up until the day of our departure. I would highly recommend Ntanda Ventures for planning your next Safari.

Efficient, helpful and patient with extensive knowledge

Ntanda Ventures (Sonja) has assisted us a few times, and I can only say how brilliant they have been. Due to our constantly changing timetables, they have been efficient and patient and have always tailored our needs and our budget to our family.
Thank for organising another amazing holiday- safari and fishing at the Royal Zambezi.

Professional and Perfect Service

I got in touch with Sonja from Ntanda ventures about two weeks before my intended safari, and I was impressed right from the onset. She understood exactly what I was looking for and communication was fast and very informative. For our transfer to Kiambi lodge, the driver was at our hotel half an hour before the pick up time, ready for us and he kept the same time when picking us up from the lodge to take us back to Lusaka. Kiambi lodge was an amazing stay, I highly recommend doing one night camping on the island on the banks of the Zambezi. Keep up the good work and I most definitely will be back soon.

An authentic, wild and tailor made discovery of Zambia

Traveling around Zambia was an amazing experience thanks to all the work accomplished by Sonja and Ntanda Ventures. We had a wonderful 13 days selfdrive trip accros the most iconic places of the country and some really calm and preserved spots. As young and a bit adventurous people, we wanted to discover Zambia in a confortable and yet human way, Ntanda Ventures allowed us to live that experience.

I'm used to travel in Africa and I went on safari quite few times in differents countries, traveling in Zambia was definitely the most economic, cost-affective and yet magnificent one. Ntanda Ventures managed to organize a really interesting trip which was a mix between selfdrive, off tracks activities (like kayaking on the Zambeze, sleeping in the bush or having some time with a local NGO), confortable lodges with delicious food and very few people (big shout out to Thornicroft Lodge <3), and real safari experiences in South Luangwa / Chobe / Lower Zambezi.

Communication with Sonja was really easy all trip long, since day 1 and till the end, she helped us with few issues, was really convenient and even managed to adapt our trip when we decided to add some last minute activities. Even if you love selfdrive I think it's really comforting to know that you can reach someone to help you wherever you are.

Accomodations were adapted to our needs and expectations, all places were calm, clean, serving great food and offering beautiful landscapes. Ntanda Ventures also gave us some local adresses / stops on the road so that we can enjoy the drive on ourselves even more, all recommandations were really good moments.

I thnik that Zambia is a really beautiful country, with wondeful landscapes, plenty of animals and really interesting people, traveling with Ntanda Ventures allow you to discover all of that, even in a short time and with a very low budget. Thanks again to Sonja who made our trip unforgettable, mostly for Mathilda who was discovering Africa for the first time, she will never forget this one :)

An amazing safari in South Luangwa!

It was such a good experience booking my trip with Ntanda Ventures. Sonja was very responsive and organised a great trip based on my budget and preferences. I had a fabulous stay at Wildlife Camp and was very fortunate to have lots of excellent game sightings. I've already booked my next trip with her!!
