Exceptional Tailored Safari Holiday Tour Agency
5/5

Off 2 Africa is the best tour and travel company we have experienced after travelling around the world in many countries. They are a small specialised tour operator, offering unique safari travel experiences for individuals and small groups, and they work with ecologically friendly lodges and support local experts. No wonder they were Zimbabwe's Leading Tour Operator for 2021! We wanted a romantic anniversary trip (after being unable to travel for so long due to Covid) and they organised all the details that included breathtaking experiences, learning about wildlife and nature, and luxury. From the beginning Chloe was fantastic, responding to our initial query with cost estimates, options, and a clear knowledge of the places we wanted to visit. Rather than just give a typical series of things to do, she found out what we really wanted to do, what our tastes were, and gave us always a choice, while working within our budget. We really had individualised attention from start to finish, including important local advice (like bring US dollars for Zimbabwe, what Covid-related protocols were needed, getting guides known for their experience and safety, help with border crossings). She always found us the best, most luxurious options for our lodges and meals, and made sure that we got the either individual or very small group tours (in Victoria Falls, Chobe National Park, and Hwange National Park). She even came out to meet us at our hotel shortly after we arrived, and was available to us after working hours to make sure that everything was sorted when we had problems getting PCR certificates printed. All this while not charging service fees, extras, and offering at cost or better rates than if you were to work directly with lodges, game drives, etc. In other words, they take the stress out of your holiday by doing the local research and organisational work for you from start to finish! What more could you want?! We can't recommend Off 2 Africa and Chloe more highly!

Off2Africa Passionately Cares about Their Clients Providing a Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience
5/5

Off2Africa and specifically Chloe really saved us. We are a family of 6 with late teen children and were planning a graduation present trip for one of my children to Scotland when the entire trip was cancelled due to COVID restrictions. Needing to save our doomed family vacation, I reached out to Off2Africa with only about 6 about to go before our travel dates and an immediate response with various options was provided within 24 hours.

A customized trip that exactly met our travel date requirements and our desire to experience various activities within our budget was put together with the next few days. Not knowing exactly what we wanted, Chloe was able to provide first-hand insights into the various camps providing options.

The trip that Chloe put together for us was an incredible blend of safari wildlife and adrenaline-based family activities in Zimbabwe. We visited the Bumbusi Wilderness Camp, The Hide and The Elephant Camp with each location providing quite unique and different experiences.

The Bumbusi Wilderness Camp provided a secluded experience like none other with extreme flexibility on when and what we wanted to do in terms of safari drives. We saw ample wildlife including lots of elephants, giraffes, baboons, impala and a variety of other animals. Additionally, the personalized dinners that our family shared with camp’s staff and our guide provided intimacy in a unique way. The food was phenomenal and there was always plenty of it. They really took care of us!

At The Hide, the unique setting in being able to get up close and personal with the animals was the highlight. Our guide was able to provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences with a very up close encounter with a lion and an elephant approach on foot. There was a plethora of wildlife including multiples encounters with a 500+ herd of buffalo, a very close encounter with a cobra and many other animals. What an experience!

The Elephant Camp was an awesome place to finish up our trip as the location allowed us to experience not only wildlife safari (including an up and close personal encounter with a black rhino), but also bungee jumping, white water rafting, a photography cruise (a very close encounter with a crocodile being the highlight), sightseeing Victoria Falls and a dinner cruise on the Zambezi River. The accommodations were extraordinarily comfortable and internet speed was incredible to the delight of my children.

The fact that Chloe was able to put together this trip so quickly and was also able to help us navigate a number of complications due to COVID testing requirements is a testament to how she really cares about her clients. She cares about you on a personal level which is both unusual and refreshing. She met us in person when we arrived in Victoria Falls at the airport and once again later in the trip making sure everything was ok. She continued to check in on us throughout the trip making sure all of our needs were taken care of. Her organizational skills, creativity and empathy was tremendous and allowed us to have the trip of a lifetime. We felt incredibly well cared for.

Thank you Off2Africa and Chloe!

Informative & ressponsive
5/5

We decided to do a somewhat Zim tour hitting Hwange and Vic Falls during the midst of the pandemic and had no idea where to start, what would be open and which activities/ tours would be operating. We were lucky enough to find Off2Africa to do all that work for us. Not only did they have all the updates and correlate all comms, they even suggested their own personal advice when we were left with more than one option (which was lovely to have 'choice' during the pandemic)!

In the end we enjoyed 7 nights split between Hwange and Vic Falls - everything was a 5 star experience. We stayed at the Vic Falls Safari Lodge Island Suites then over to Somalisa in Hwange. What a wonderful trip for us and we will never forget our very special time in the incredible county of Zimbabwe - all possible with the help of Chloe and Off2Africa team!

Special experience. Exceeded my expectations
5/5

It was smoothly organised - from beginning to the start. The airport pick up, the rooms, and the service at the lodge. Even special requests were accommodated.

A big thank you to the Off2Africa team for the Hwange recommendation and for facilitating our booking at Nehimba and Bomani Camps. Service was prompt, professional and lots of questions were well answered - making sure all our needs were met!

The trip itself was incredible. The camps facilities, meals, activities and staff were of a high standard and we had a wonderful time. Highly recommended!

Helpful and efficient
5/5

Communication was good, service as per you would expect, both resorts were just as expected with one being a certain offering and the other being much more high end, we enjoyed both places and would visit them again

Everything we hoped for and more, it was the trip of a life time!
5/5

Chloe organised a two week road trip around Zimbabwe for us and from the very start accommodated all of our requests. We have two young daughters and the lodges she chose for us were so welcoming to the girls, providing meals at the times we wanted and going the extra mile to keep them entertained. Halfway through the trip our car broke down and Chloe was immediately available helping us change accommodation bookings while we sorted out the car. We've been on safaris in Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania and this was by far the best experience. Thank you Chloe and Off 2 Africa!
