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!

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!

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.

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.

Superb - cannot recommend highly enough.
We did the 8-day tour through Vic Falls, Chobe, Makgadikgadi Pans and Okavango Delta.
We had the most fantastic trip with Webster and his team. We were a family of 4 - grandmother, mum and two teenagers (14 & 16).
Communication with Webster right from the first enquiry was great. He answered quickly and helped accommodate our requests.
In Victoria Falls Webster took us on the tour of the falls. They are truly breathtaking. The next day, Webster organised for 3 of us (not granny!) to do a bungee jump off the bridge - we cannot recommend this enough!!! Webster helped book us a table at the Lookout cafe. This is a really special place to eat and shouldn’t be missed. All of Webster’s advice and suggestions, such as recommendations for restaurants, were superb.
Our time in Chobe was incredible. We saw so many animals and had varied trips - boats, car, early morning. Our favourites were the hippos and a huge pride of lions.
We then travelled to the Makgadikgadi Pans. It wasn’t the season for much wildlife but we still saw ostriches, wildebeest and zebra. The sunset was stunning.
The Okavango Delta was spectacular. We had a day trip in the Mokoro boats with a safari walk. This was probably the least exciting part of the trip. We did see hippos but not a lot of other wildlife. Webster booked a helicopter trip over the Delta and this was AMAZING! We would really recommend this over a plane trip as you can see so much more through the open doors.
Overall this trip was truly fantastic and we can’t recommend it enough. Here are a few tips for if you are considering this trip:
- your hotels may change from the itinerary. Don’t worry as all the hotels Webster books are fantastic.
- check the day’s itinerary with Webster as we were caught out when we had a full day safari which we had thought was only a half day (we’d have taken slightly different things with us.)
- do a helicopter over the Okavango Delta!
- add an extra day in Maun/Okavango delta in order to do a game drive. This is the only thing we wished we’d done, but didn’t.
- do a bungee off the Victoria Falls bridge!
- go for lunch at the Lookout Cafe and enjoy the spectacular views of the falls and bridge.
- go for the Boma dinner, it was great fun. However, take care of your valuables and keep them with you at all times. We unfortunately had some money stolen from our bag when we were dancing. We are pretty sure it was our waiter.
Thank you Webster and team for a truly unforgettable holiday :-)
