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!

These people get it. You are in great hands. They can be trusted. We asked for a special detour to see Impalila Island - which requires another border crossing. We had very little time, and we knew that, but they made it happen!! We were pretty amazed as they navigated us through Zambia, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana —- all in 1 day! - so unreal.
We will use these folks wherever and whenever we possibly can.

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.

Family holiday Hwange National Park, Victoria Falls & Chobe National Park hosted by Webster Musaidzi
The first thing that I need to mention is how overwhelmingly honest my dealing with Webster was. We had this trip planned several years earlier and had to cancel, Webster took care of your paid money and the security of our money was never in doubt! When we finally got to re-book the trip Webster immediately discounted our trip appropriately. To me this sums up the integrity and honesty of Webster.
After this the trip all went perfectly to plan and ran smooth as clockwork. Our time was full, busy and interesting. All our accommodation was at a great level including our overnight camping in the bush.
The whole family enjoyed the time spent with Webster and I would totally recommend his services and when I return to Vic Falls soon, I will certainly be using the services of Webster and DK Tours and Safaris for my booking and planning. I have had quite a lot of dealings with Webster now at the start by e-mail and then in person. I have really enjoyed all my interactions with him and consider him a friend.
Vic Falls is a wonderful place to visit, I would thoroughly recommend everybody visit at least once. I have been there 3 times now and it holds a special place in my heart!

Our experience was excellent and we will be back!
Friendly and reliable organization. We booked a combo of 4 activities and got a really good price. For whitewater rafting, the team even organized some wetsuits for us. The groups of guests were always 4 people which was very nice and private. Webster and his team are absolutely great and they delivered in the best way possible. Communication was super quick and was so easy to arrange everything. A really reliable operator for anything you would need in Vic. Falls.

An Unforgettable Adventure with DK Tours and Safaris in Victoria Falls!
I recently had the pleasure of embarking on a breathtaking adventure with DK Tours and Safaris, and I am absolutely thrilled to share my experience.
From the moment I contacted Brighton at DK Tours and Safaris, his exceptional customer service set the tone for an unforgettable journey. He was not only professional but also genuinely passionate about delivering an authentic and enriching safari experience. His attention to detail was evident in every aspect of our trip, and he was able to recommend a well thought out list of activities that allowed us to enjoy the best of Victoria Falls: a half day trip to Chobe, a guided tour of the falls, dinner at The Boma and a sunset cruise.
The rest of the team – Webster, Owen and Prisca were nothing short of remarkable. Their extensive knowledge of the local flora and fauna, as well as the cultural and historical significance of the area, added an extra layer of depth to our adventure. They expertly navigated the town, transferred us between activities and made excellent recommendations on places to explore, shop and eat.
DK Tours and Safaris really went above and beyond to ensure our every need was met.
I wholeheartedly recommend DK Tours and Safaris and am proud to support their business.
