Excellent service and value for money
As always, DK Tours has exceeded my expectations as the go to tourism company for a wholesome safari/vacation experience in Zimbabwe and Botswana. This is an account of my most recent visit from May 29 -June 5, 2022. This is a very long review and l hope it’s reassuring if you are having doubts about booking with DK Tours :)
Day 1: The trip started with an airport pickup to my accommodations.
Day 2: Was in the form of a next day guided tour of the majestic Mosi-oa-Tunya/ Victoria Falls. I was quite happy to have someone take the pictures. Trust me, you will want someone to take them! This was my first time traveling to Victoria Falls in June and the amount of water falling was truly amazing! I remember jokingly comparing the Falls to the Niagara Falls in Canada with another tourist who was visiting from New York. In his words, ‘the Victoria Falls are much better because they are all natural’ and we have the pictures to prove it! This was followed by lunch at the LookOut Cafe, the Lookout burger is to die for and the views, oh my!
Day 3: This was a more relaxed day to shake of the jet lag and exploring the city followed by a splendid dinner at Boma and some drinks at 3 Monkeys.
Day 4: The day started pretty early with a drive to the Zim/Botswana Kazungula border and there was plenty of wildlife along the way peeping from the darkness. We arrived at the border at day break, just as the border opened, and were picked ip from the Botswana side by Kidi, beginning our early morning Game drive. They say the earliest bird picks the fattest worm, which is probably why we were quite likely to run into a pride of 16 lions! This was my first close encounter with lions and by the end of the day the count had gone up to 20! No other group had seen that many by end of day. We had more close encounters with elephants, giraffes, impala, kudu, buffalo and hippos! My only regret was not seeing zebras that day (but there’s plenty of zebras at the Hwange National Park). We had buffet lunch in a lovely Lodge along the river and had a cruise after lunch. It was amazing to see the wildlife from the water side and elephants dipping in and playing in the water and a gorgeous sunset to end the day. We were then taken back across the body and slept the rest of the way after a very long, amazing day!
Day 5: The last day in Victoria Falls was topped by a 15 minute helicopter ride over the falls. As much as l loved the Falls from the ground, the view is even much breathtaking and better from the sky. You can even spot the devils pool which is on the Zambian side. The ride ended with a fly over the national park (l think) where we spotted some giraffes and elephants. At that point, l was satisfied with the entire trip with all expectations met.
In summary, this is worth the money and will leave you with stories to tell for a lifetime. If you are not sure, ask DK Tours for recommendations, including the best time to visit.
I hope that’s helpful. All the best!

Thumbs up for a very competent and reliable travel agency in Victoria Falls
DK Tour is a reputable and competent travel agency in Victoria Falls. The contact, the advice, the communication and the payment for the trip were easy and efficient and far cheaper than with a travel agency from Germany. My wife and I were excellently looked after on site by the boss, Mr. Webster Musidzi, and given the best advice on the selection of events and providers (helicopter flight, dinner cruise). Mr. Musidzi was always personally on hand to make sure we were picked up from the hotel on time. We would highly recommend DK Tours in Victoria Falls for planning a trip to Zimbabwe/Botswana.

Flexible and reliable, trying to make your holiday a success
Webster was very helpful in organising our stay in that part of Africa. Contact with him was very easy. We used his services for airport transfers, the extended day tour in Chobe, the helicopter flight, the sunset dinner cruise and I can't say any negative word about it. I would maybe only suggest a better boat for the river safari in Chobe. We also did the guided tour of the Falls but we thought that this was probably not necessary and we could have done it on our own. Still, I can't say any bad word about that toir either. Everything was very well organised and Webster showed a lot of flexibility. I can highly recommend DK Tours. He uses reliable partners.

Using local Zimbabwean guides clearly gave us the best possible experience.
We hired DK Tours & Safaris to arrange a two-week trip throughout Zimbabwe. We started in Harare, went to Mana Pools National Park, Great Zimbabwe, Matobo Hills National Park, Hwange National Park, and Victoria Falls. Webster Musaidzi arranged the whole thing, including all the hotels, safaris, and transfers.
Everything went very smoothly. Webster and Brighton drove us through much of the country and were excellent guides and great people to travel with. They were gracious in adding in additional stops for things were were interested in, including a visit to a village.
The only problem we had was at the Meikles Hotel in Harare, where we had a wallet stolen from our room and were drastically overcharged. DK Tours & Safaris were not responsible for this and presumably will not use the hotel in the future.
One of the nicest things about the trip was that we worked with Webster to plan our OWN itinerary, focused on what we wanted to do and when. Webster was super knowledgeable and accommodating. It was also good to know that our money was staying in Zimbabwe and benefiting the local economy.
If you are planning to go to Zimbabwe, Botswana, or Zambia, I would heartily encourage you to choose DK Tours & Safaris to arrange your trip and execute it for you.

To all travelers to Africa in search of adventure! Who want to travel with confidence, with an exceptional experience, I recommend DKTOURS with your eyes closed!
We had the chance to cross Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana for a trip adapted to our desires, which delighted our eyes and our hearts. An intense and unforgettable adventure which made us see the best of Victoria Falls, and of Chobe. Sunset cruise, walking views of the falls, helicopter flight, thrilling devil pool experience, water and land cruise safari, and overnight camp in Chobe.
4 days of intense moments etched forever.
I would add that you will not be disappointed with the richness of the animals and the landscapes, quite simply incredible.
Thank you again for everything DKTOURS! We wish you the best.

Tour Guide was clearly passionate about his job and the animals. Worked hard to get the good views!
The game drive was exhilarating! I appreciated the thoroughness and the hard work the guide and assistant both put in to make the experience a very memorable one. Definitely unforgettable. Saw just about everything advertised except the Leopard, which can be an elusive animal. We did detect what the guide thought were Leopard tracks. Camping was exciting and a great way to see the animals that appear early in the morning and in the evening. Camping is probably the best way to see the most animals! The guide and assistant very friendly, polite, and helpful. This tour is highly recommended!

Fantastic, Knowledgeable and Deeply Caring hosts and tour guides!
DK tours picked us up at the border of Botswana and Zimbabwe and within 48 hours transformed our experience to one that would be unforgettable in a Life time. They did a wall to wall coverage of the most exciting activities without us having to ask anyone else around. They took care of all the picking and dropping off, stayed with us throughout the various activities etc. Their knowledge of all the local places, Victoria falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the lion walk, the bungee jumping and zip line activities were found to be second to none. We also found them to be highly trustworthy. An example is they collected the money from us for all the activities we were interested in doing and they made the reservations. These were all at list prices as quoted by the activity vendors on their website. On the day of activities,when Webster (owner/manager of DK tours) found out that there was a special discount of 20% that the vendor were offering he refunded us that amount in US dollars at the end of the day. It gave us so much comfort that DK tours were deeply caring. They also facilitated finding the best restaurants to go to during those two days as some of us were vegetarians and some are fish.
All in all the best guides and tour company we have experienced in recent time. When you reach out to them ask for Webster. Enoch is the specific guide who accompanied us. Both were standout individuals.
