Great safari with excellent service.
5/5

Had a great experience with Zambezi Expedition Travel. Our 8 day safari starting in Victoria Falls and finishing in Maun was spectacular. A dream vacation.
Oscar, Silence and Francis took excellent care of us.
I can totally recommend this team. They made the dream safari for me and my dad come true.

Fantastic!
5/5

Zambezi Expedition came across when I was searching for travel tours that can accomodate our African trip/adventure this month of April. Luckily, I was able to get in touch with Oscar who’s very accomodating and helpful even during the process of our Visa applications to Zimbabwe and Botswana even I haven’t completed the booking with them but he genuinely tried his best to help us with all the information that we need for the said trip. Our family trip went very smoothly and he gave us the best accomodation and experience. You can customize your trip and let him know about your budget as well and he won’t hesitate to help and give you good offers. Also, our tour guide in Zimbabwe, Francis was very informative and active during the entire trip. Zambezi Expedition deserves a 5-star overall rating! Thanks for making our African Safari unforgettable and memorable! God bless!

5/5

This trip was an unforgettable experience. Everyone was friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful. All aspects of accommodation and food were properly arranged. It changed my view of Africa! It also broadened my horizons~

My friend and I were traveling to Africa for the first time, so we chose to join a local group to reduce the inconvenience of arranging accommodation and itinerary. After doing some research online, we decided to go to Vic falls, Chobe Park & ​​Okavango Delta to see the animals and scenery. Because the value was very affordable and it covered all the attractions we thought of, we chose this 9-day tour.

After the online quotation, we have been communicating with the travel agency through email and WhatsApp. At first, we were a little worried about buying cattle from another mountain without any guarantee, so we asked Oscar a lot of questions. He was very patient and answered quickly, ensuring that we understood the items covered by the package. He was also considerate of our concerns and allowed us to pay half of the package in advance. Make a deposit and pay the remainder after arrival.

Due to flight issues, we arrived at Vic Falls one day earlier than the scheduled start date of our 9-day tour. Oscar also proactively provided airport pick-up arrangements. As soon as we arrived, Francis was waiting for us at the airport. After we solved the network problem, he sent us to the lounge. He kept chatting with us on the way. He was very professional and polite. He also introduced us to the animals we encountered on the road and drove slowly for us to take pictures. Compared with the purposeful assistance of the orange-shirted staff at JNB when transferring flights, Francis' friendliness is even more highlighted. He took the initiative to help us drag our luggage and open the door along the way, which was very polite.

The 9-day itinerary was properly arranged. Francis is mainly responsible for our itinerary and transfers. There will be different guides for different guided tours and hunting activities. The guides all have enough knowledge to answer questions about relevant attractions and animals. The public is welcome to ask questions and has endless questions. , which has benefited us a lot. In addition to the itinerary, Francis will also take us to nearby restaurants and attractions. As long as we make a request, he will try his best to arrange it.

In terms of accommodation, since we chose the most affordable package, we didn’t have much expectations for the accommodation environment, but each Tented camp was generally clean and sanitary and met our expectations. The most surprising thing was the night at Elephant Sand. It was originally budget camping, and Oscar specially upgraded it to a lounge for us. The view in the room was really amazing. With floor-to-ceiling glass, you could see the sunrise and sunset with elephants while sitting on the bed. , Oscar also specially arranged for us to have dinner with members of another group to get to know each other. It was an unforgettable night. The two nights of Okavango Delta Budget Camping that we were most worried about at first had a good experience. As soon as we arrived at the camp site, the masters packed mattresses, pillows and sleeping bags for us. There was also an outdoor toilet space, and there were The chef prepared four meals for us, which was a very good package for camping.

The overall experience was really good, the itinerary and accommodation were well arranged, there were no hidden charges, the guides were very enthusiastic and chatty, and Francis felt more like our distant friend. Would definitely recommend this company.
If I have the chance to travel nearby next time, I will choose them again.

5/5

We enjoyed a fantastic tour in Chobe National Park, the guys at Zambesi tours had everything well organised and helped us with all border formalities. The guide in Chobe was extremely knowledgeable and fun to hang out with and the chef's food was delicious too. We just hope we can redo it sometime soon.

Best experience
5/5

Okay so I don’t normally write reviews so me writing this is going above and beyond. We did the 3 day budget safari camping and it was insane. The amount of effort and thought and consideration that went into a “budget” experience was truly unparalleled, and made the experience feel luxury. Every consideration, any thing I asked, Oscar went above and beyond and surpassed all expectations. Our tour guide Moses was also fantastic, the food was fantastic, I simply can’t rave about this more. Oscar even was going to go to the lengths to meet us at dinner to make sure everyone in our groups specifications were met. There is perfect communication, and you can customize it to your exact specifications. I’ve been all around the world, and I can speak from experience the service he provides is truly unparalleled. Please go to him! He will make your safari experience!

The team at Zambezi Expedition Travel and Tours ensured that we had a the best possible experience.
5/5

I can’t talk highly enough about the Zambezi Expedition Team, the itinerary was so well communicated we knew exactly what we would be doing each day. From the moment we arrived the Zambezi Expedition team had everything sorted so that we had a wonderful holiday that we will never forget. We were met at the airport by Francis who was so courteous and helpful. When we arrived at the hotel which was really great and very welcoming. Silence came to ensure that we were settled in and explained the itinerary so we were fully prepared for the safari’s and fabulous river cruise. We were privileged to see elephants, zebras, hippos, ostriches, and many other animals close up living in there own environment all of the guides were so knowledgeable and explained about the conservation of these beautiful animals. The highlight among so many was for us seeing the lions up close watching them interact with each other.
This trip was the best value for money that we have ever spent and we can’t thank the wonderful team enough for providing us with so many amazing memories that we will treasure.

5/5

We made the reservation for our Safari about 2-3 months before travelling. Communication was fast and booked the tour easy.
We always had a person to talk to and every question was answered.
Although there were changes to the confirmed itinerary we still liked the provided experience. We will come back.
