The right place for outstanding memories
Do you know the feeling, when you meet an old friend you haven't seen in a long time, and you know he is eager to show you the best there is to see in his neighborhood ?
That is how I felt after meeting Tafara at the airport, and everyday during the tour (7 days Victoria Falls, Chobe and Hwange).
Archie answered all my questions before travelling and made sure everything is ok until after I came back home.
For my next visit to Africa, no doubt I will go again with Africa Uncovered Safaris.

Great guide and great setup
Muza was a great guide who really cared about our wellbeing. The schedule was really good and we saw a lot of animals. The best was Chobe and the tour in the Okawongo delta. Double K was a really good guide in the delta. The lodges was also very good, especially in Victoria falls
All in all it was very a good trip. Highly recommended

Highly trained and experienced, personalized trip with pleasant, knowledgeable local guides.
Look no further for your trip to Zimbabwe and Botswana than Africa Uncovered. Having been on multiple safaris, this was one of the best experiences we’ve had in Africa. They are extremely communicative and provide a safe experience. Absolutely incredible from start to finish. We enjoyed having a small group of just us and the tour guides, which created a personalized and memorable experience.
Many tour operators put 20-30 people together on a meta coach bus - this was not the business plan of Africa Uncovered. They have decades of business relationships with local hotels, game reserves, and other tour operators. If you tell them what you want to do, Archie can create a custom experience for you. A smaller group allows you to see more and wait less, and allows you to dictate the pace.
We have the luxury of having 2 tour guides with us - both Muza and Tafara have years of experience, know the territory and people well, and became friends of ours during the trip. We can’t rave enough about each of them. Ask for them if they are available.

Archie was very easy to contact and was able to fulfil all of the things I wanted to do in Africa.
After booking my tour with Africa Uncovered 8 months prior to my trip, Archie was incredibly helpful in supporting and answering any questions I had.
I did a 7 day tour of Victoria Falls, Chobe and Hwange national park. Cosmas and Jafara were on hand straight away at the airport and they were my guides for the trip. Although they didn’t do any of the guiding for the actual tours I went on, they were there for anything I needed, drove me around to each destination and were amazing company during meal times.
The team were great at organising excursions. I had a walking tour of Victoria falls, a helicopter tour - 100% worth every penny, a visit to the elephant orphanage - personally I wouldn’t go back as wasn’t the natural authentic experience I was hoping for, I went on the jet boat - although this was cool to see the falls from below, there wasn’t much ‘jet boating’, and did a gorge swing which was terrifying but great. Next time I’d try out one of the activities on the Victoria falls bridge. A really highlight was the evening sunset dinner cruise along the Zambezi. Pure Africa was the boat Archie booked me into and they were incredible!
I also got the chance to experience Boma. This is a great place for dinner where African culture really comes to life - think traditional food, dancing and drumming!
Then I headed to Chobe national park in Botswana. Make sure you get a dual visa if doing this trip as you will head back into Zimbabwe after. I went on an afternoon river safari which was amazing - all the hippos, birds and elephants were about.
The next day I had 2 game drives in the park, one at sunrise and one in the afternoon. Chobe is pretty small so you’re guaranteed to see all the animals when cruising around. The elephants were a particular highlight for me. Seeing them
With they babies playing in the water was magical. I was booked into the Kwalape safari lodge. As there were lots of other big groups, the hotel put on a show from local dancers which was amazing!
I then headed to Hwange, a 3-4 hour drive from Chobe back into Zimbabwe. We stopped off at the painted dogs conservation where I learned all about the amazing work locals are doing to try and stop poachers from killing this beautiful species. I then had the privilege of visiting the homestead of a local family in the village. They welcomed me so beautifully, showed me their home, their crops, they demonstrated how they cook, create their houses, they got all the animals around - it was a time I will remember.
In Hwange I stayed at the Miombo safari lodge. Beautiful setting with a huge water hole in the middle to encourage animals at night and boy did they come! Elephants can each evening and kudus also came to get some water.
The next day I did a 10 hour game drive in Hwange national park - what a place! We didn’t even touch the sides but it was amazing to see the different vegetation and species. I was lucky enough to see everything I wanted: zebra, giraffe, lions, leopard, kudu, eland, elephants galore, impala, zazu birds, hippos and birds galore!
I went home a very happy lady!
One thing to consider when booking these holidays is the price of things. Zimbabwe is much more expensive than Botswana. That includes food, drink, tipping etc.

Incredible, affordable, friendly
I would definitely recommend booking with Africa Uncovered Safaris. Their communication during the booking process was excellent and very helpful and friendly. They offer affordable tours with quality, comfortable accommodation and cater for a variety of dietary requirements.
Their destinations have a great variety of activities to experience across several locations. Local tour operators are very knowledgeable.
The small group size meant a personalised experience with Muza being a friendly and organised guide who was always on time and reliable. Would definitely use again.

Experienced, friendly and always looking to make the trip exceptional
Lovely team who are very willing to do whatever they can to make your trip as enjoyable and tailored as you need. They review all the locations and accommodations personally and just love meeting you and making sure you have a good time.
Victoria’s falls and Botswana/chobe trips were incredible.
There are no words that do justice to how amazing our experience with Africa Uncovered was.
Archie and Muza were a phenomenal team. They made us feel so very welcome and supported from the beginning till the end.
The trip was planned to perfection and they were always very clear on communication
-letting us know what we were doing and when and what we needed to do/bring.
We travelled throughout Zimbabwe and Botswana with Muza and could honestly not have asked for a better companion. He was attentive, funny and extraordinarily kind.
Archie takes care of the administrative aspect od the business and replies swiftly to messages as well as checks in regularly to make sure all is going as planned.
If you're looking to do a trip I would whole heartedly recommend this company. Don't even look elsewhere, just book with them now.
Thank you so so much!
Tatenda Archie and Muza!

Absolutely perfect experience!
If I had to choose only one word to describe this team, it would be a 'Professional'.
I met Archie & Muza for a 7-day trip. They gave me an immediate answer and crystal clear information from scratch. Every moment of the trip was very well organized by them. Everything on my itinerary was exactly the same as it actually was. They always double checked important issues to prevent falling behind the scheduled plan.
At the same time, they showed me great hospitality. They alway paid attention to me to make sure whether I was feeling comfortable with everything on the trip or not. And they also never lost their sense of humor. Any place was okay as long as we were together.
It was my first time going to Africa. Besides, currently in Korea, it is very hard to get up-to-date information about travel to the African continent. I was very anxious regarding this trip for a number of reasons such as safety, visa issuance, disease and etc. But since I met them, everything was going to be easy. I enjoyed myself very much during the tour.
If I come back to Africa, I'll definitely go on a trip with them again. Hopefully see you soon Muza and Archie!

Unforgettable Botswana Experience
We had an incredible 6 days / 5 nights safari organized by Uncovered. Muza, our guide did an excellent job, trying to fulfill all our needs and requirements, he is an excellent driver and a very good company. Archie, the Operations Manager, was very quick with his responses and able to offer alternatives at all times. The trip was well organized, the accommodations well-chosen and the value for money was fair. We recommend Uncovered Safaris unconditionally for trips to Southern Africa and are looking forward to come back. Thank you sou much, Archie an Muza!!
