Reliable, professional, knowledgeable and do everything to make your trip a memorable experience

Cultural Vibes Travel and Tours has proved to be excellent yet again as this is now the third time, we have used them and a much-needed break after almost 3 years with the Covid pandemic. Tongesai is extremely reliable, professional, knowledgeable and does everything to make your trip a memorable experience. Compared to local larger companies, Tongesai’s individual package rates are more reasonable and come with a customized touch. We felt that our holiday with Tongesai was much better and suited us more so than if we had booked through a larger company. His individual tailoring, personal involvement and attention to detail pays off in the smooth running of your trip.
Our visits to the Victoria Falls, both sides from Zimbabwe and Zambia were magnificent and never cease to amaze us. On this trip Tongesai arranged for a private sunset cruise on the Zambezi just for our family of four instead of on the larger vessels, which was a very pleasant alternative. The boat trip in Chobe is magical and a must if you venture into Botswana. Wildlife was in abundance, including lion, elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, puku, kudu, bushbuck, waterbuck, impala, gemsbok, steenbok, sable and roan antelope, etc. We even saw a relative of Cecil, the famous black-maned lion, ‘once a true king of Hwange National Park’.
I have no hesitation in recommending the company for arranging tours in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana - we will definitely be seeing him again. He is currently setting up arrangements with colleagues in Kruger National Park to venture into South Africa and I wish him every success with that.

Absolutely spectacular!

Our trip was one for the books. Well organized, transfer drivers were knowledgeable and helpful, tours were amazing and the guides were knowledgeable and had some great stories about every obscure question we had. Absolutely loved it all!

Reliable, trustworthy and very friendly

Our trip to Chobe national park was wonderfully well organised. We were collected on time and had a wonderful drive to the border. All the formalities were done efficiently with all the help we needed.
The morning boat ride was amazing. We had a fantastic guide who was able to show us so many things.
The afternoon jeep safari was just as good. Once again a very knowledgeable guide who even managed to find a pride of lions to observe.
It was a great day perfectly organised for us by cultural vibes.
I can highly recommend them and would hesitate to book further trips the next time we visit Victoria Falls

Tongesai took outstanding care of our group of 10 friends traveling to Hwange from start to finish!

We wanted to add on to our Africa tour and asked Tongesai for his help to find a tented camp, reasonably priced, that offered great game viewing and he really came through for us. He arranged a pick up in Zambia at our resort, transport across to Zimbabwe's Hawge National Park and a stay at the Iganyana Camp. The transfer, through 2 countries immigration process and 2.5hours to the camp went really smoothly. Our stay at Iganyana was amazing-accommodations, service, food and game drives were really great! Then it was back to Victoria Falls and our return home.
Cultural Vibes took great care of us, from our initial request, through payments online, pickup times were ontime, never a moment of concern.
It was my first time working with Tongesai and I hope it will not be the last---we highly recommend Cultural Vibes Travel!!

Dedicated, available and knowledgeable

I recently did a tour with Tongesai through Botswana and Zimbabwe. He was incredibly supportive and helped to tailor the trip exactly as I wanted. He was always on time, had organised amazing accommodation and recommend specific activities that we would have missed. He is incredibly knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to book another tour with him. The experience that he helped create of Southern Africa was truly magical. Thank you Tongesai! 10/10

Absolutely fabulous!

We travelled with Tongesai Mutematsaka of Cultural Vibes Travels & Tours through Zimbabwe, Botswana and a tiny bit of Zambia for 17 days. The tour was magnificent and Tongesai did absolutely everything possible to make it the huge success that it was. Since we had to co-ordinate several people's wishes, a lot of changes became necessary. Tongesai organised it all with a smile. I can recommend him in the strongest terms without any hesitation whatsover.

Experienced, thorough and flexible

Tongesai took us through Botswana and Zimbabwe. Made sure everything was organised from activities, food, souvenir shopping, accommodation and travel. He was very flexible throughout the trip with any changes made. I had an amazing trip on my first time to these countries and Tongesai made it all happen. Can not recommend him and cultural vibes enough
