Tongesai Mutematsaka was very reliable, concientous and accommodating.

Our 9 day tour which included Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Chobe Park and Okavango Delta, Botswana went very smoothly. The local guides who lead expeditions and game rides were all knowledgeable and excellent. We enjoyed seeing elephants up close at the water hole at Elephant Sands, the meerkat tour at Planet Baobab, two sunset cruises and walking safaris, one viewing rhinos, helicoptor rides over Victoria Falls and Okovango Delta, the Mokoro dug-out canoe experience viewing hippos and crocodiles along with many birds and, of course, the game drives and animals were amazing. The accommodations and food were all very good and the Boma restaurant with local food and entertainment was a fun experience. I had a minor health issue in Maun on a Sunday night and Tongesai was very thoughtful and drove my daughter to the local hospital pharmacy to get a medication. My daughter made all the financial arrangements and found Cultural Vibes to be very competitive for the services offered.

He was knowledgeable and informed, courteous and prompt, a pleasure to be with -- excellent!

Our tour guide was excellent. Vic Falls Tour benefited greatly from his knowledge of history , flora and fauna.
Chobe National Park was a highlight as was the afternoon on the Chobe River. We enjoyed the drumming /dancing dinner but left early as we had a full day. Glad we could be flexible. Only disappointing feature was the sunset Zambezi cruise - sunset spectacular but large boat crowded & loud - hard to get good photos. Small boat preferred. Great service.

Once in a lifetime trip to South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Botswana!!

There are sooo many fantastic things I could say about Cultural Vibes and Tongesai. From the first day when I messages him about making this trip possible, he has been nothing but helpful and a very good communicator. He put together an amazing itinerary for us to do Kruger in South Africa, Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, and Chobe in Botswana. He made the entire booking process easy and really put our mind at ease at booking this major vacation from thousands miles away. Kruger started off absolutely amazing with the partner company that he is aligned with. They were absolutely amazing and provided us with the absolute best safari experience. Then in Zimbabwe, we got the personal tour of the beautiful Victoria Falls by Tongesai himself. He was very knowledgeable and truly cared about making our experience fantastic. This continued into our day trip to Botswana which was also fantastic. Tongesai chooses great accommodations and places to eat which made our trip even more fantastic. I have many family and friends that are looking to take a similar trip, and I would not hesitate to recommend Cultural Vibes to them for their vacation!

A consummate professional, and nice guy who organized and delivered the BEST safari experience.

Tongesai at Cultural Vibes organised and got us to and from our Lodge Safari experience in Hwange. Communication was fine, service was exemplary, value for money was good, reliability couldn't be faulted and our whole safari experience was magic. When we go to Africa next we'll be in contact with Cultural Vibes!

Professional, reliable, friendly!

We had a fabulous and worry free time on our Zimbabwe safari. Tongesai from CulturalVibes Travel and Tours arranged the perfect experience for us. Booking was easy, and communication leading up to, and during the safari was good. His sharing of local knowledge was much appreciated. Our transfers to and from Victoria Falls were prompt, timely and comfortable. Our lodgings at Khulu Bush Camp were amazing, and our safari experience was wonderful. Our guides were sooo knowledgeable and friendly, making sure we had the best possible safari experience. I can fully recommend Tongessai and Cultural Vibes Travel and Tours.

Informative, well planned, and considerate.

We had a wonderful experience. The tour guide worked very hard to give us a good sighting of animals. He was considerate and helpful in every way. I am glad we used this travel agency.

Dedicated, highly recommended tour operator

Cultural Vibes Travel & Tours is a very good tour operator. Tongesai is very prompt with all communications before and after the booking. He answered all questions and concerns, meet and exceed our expectations. We had a great tour day, learned about the life of rural people in Monde Village and had a great dining experience at Dusty Rose. We felt like having a friend taking us around and show us his country, his people. He gave us good discount for any additional tour we requested. He even took us to the helicopter place for a tour over Victoria Falls. We got a private tour at a discounted price. I highly recommend using Cultural Vibes Travel & Tours because the company provided a customized experience and made us feel very comfortable and happy. Tongesai is a very good & reliable guide, he's honest, caring and takes good care of his guests. Don't hesitate to use Cultural Vibes Travel & Tours for your tours around Victoria Falls & Chobe National Park. You'll have a good time with guides who went above and beyond to make your day the best it could be.

Absolutely wonderful!

I can't say enough good things about our 4-day tour "Victoria Falls Safari Tour & Chobe National Park game drive" provided by Cultural Vibes. The whole experience was extraordinary and a great value for the cost. It included pick-up at our hotel, then transport to the airport at the end. It also included sunset and morning river cruises, two game drives, a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls, a tour of the Falls park, dinner & drum show, and rooms & meals at a very comfortable lodge. The guides were exceptional - very knowledgeable and personable (and very patient with us "older ladies"). It was obvious that Cultural Vibes had given a lot of thoughtful consideration as to how to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable (the lined ponchos were very much appreciated on the 6am game drive!). When our departing flight was delayed a day, our guide even helped us figure out a problem with the African airline and transported us to the airport a day later than originally planned. The whole tour was truly exceptional.

Worry free tour!

Cultural vibes took care of every detail when arranging our flight over Victoria Falls. We had some logistical issues around scheduling and they worked with us to meet every challenge. Great company to work with!
