perfect knowhow, perfect service - PERFECT SAFARI!

We started to plan our family safari (2 adults, to teenagers, 1 four-year-old) almost 2 years before going - and Chloe from Off2Africa has been our partner from the start: comparing all the options, selecting the accommodation, considering our special requests, being positive and professional all the way.
It has been a fair and smooth process and it resulted in a wonderful experience for all of us from the minute we finally entered Sambia. We had so much fun and meaningful experiences, and although the bushflights between our three lodges and finally the big city hotel proved to be a logistical challenge, there was absolutely no bump in our road!
Thanks Chloe, thanks everyone at Off2Africa, keep up the good work!

Flexible, responsive tour operator

We have done a week safari with 2 young kids (7 and 10). Off2 Africa was able to understand and explain our constraints and organise the best trip possible. We highly recommend off 2 Africa.

Worry free safari!

I had an incredible experience planning my Zimbabwe and Botswana safari with Chloe and Off2Africa. Chloe was communicative and flexible, offering lots of options and and suggestions until we landed on the perfect itinerary for me. As a solo traveler I had tons of questions and Chloe answered them all in a timely and reassuring manner, no matter how big or small my concern was! I particularly appreciated that she was able to plan out all of my flights and transfers between locations. Once I landed in Victoria Falls I didn't have to worry about how I would get across the border to Botswana or transfer from camp to camp. All of the accomodations and game viewing activities were exceptional as well! When you're a solo female traveler having a tour operator that values your comfort and opinions means the world and I always felt that Chloe listened to me and had my best interest in mind. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience!

So easy to deal with

We shopped around for the best value for money safari we could find and then I found Off2Africa! Wow... Chloe was so patient with us and our requests and we ended up with the Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park safari. The accommodation at Vic Falls was beautiful, the day trips were thoroughly enjoyed and then we went to Hwange. We stayed at Khulu Camp and I can't express the amazement when we were greeted by over 100 elephants when we arrived. The accommodation, food, staff and safari itself was fantastic. Back to Vic Falls for another night and we received a lovely gift from Chloe which was a lovely surprise.
Throughout the process, Chloe was very professional and her wealth of knowledge guided us in making our decision. We absolutely LOVED our time in Vic Falls and Hwange, and can't wait to do it again.. soon! THANK YOU CHLOE AND OFF2AFRICA XX

Unparalleled trip planning

We got in touch with Chloe at Off2Africa Travel for help in putting together a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Zimbabwe.
The attention to detail from Chloe was incredible. Our email thread ran to over 100 messages, covering everything from the accommodation, the activities, the choice of game reserve and the camp used within it, the methods of travel and the changes to Zimbabwe's entry and exit requirements due to Covid-19.
This level of contact speaks to someone who cares passionately about providing a first-rate travel experience - and, what's more, Chloe does so in such a friendly manner. It was actually quite a disappointment that we weren't in Victoria Falls long enough to meet her in person because she had played such a big part in our trip.
There is no way we would have had anything like this package had we booked it ourselves. Chloe knew which Sunset Cruise to book on the Zambezi in order to be on the only boat that goes towards the Falls and thus has unobstructed views and sees wildlife (as well as provides delicious canapés and drinks). It was Chloe who knew that Mana Pools rather than Hwange was the destination if we had our hearts set on seeing Wild Dogs. And when the dinner and dancing spectacle at The Boma wasn't available on the night we were in Victoria Falls, it was Chloe who recommended a township dining experience at Dusty Road instead which we agreed was much more what we were after.
Even when our flights out of Zimbabwe (which were not part of our Off2Africa package) were cancelled at short notice, Chloe was immediately in touch offering to help us find an alternative flight.
In short, if you are booking a Zimbabwe break and want an agent to take care of every detail and every concern, Off2Africa is the place to go.

Exceptional Tailored Safari Holiday Tour Agency

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

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

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

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.
