Excelent company: great staff and awesome tours for nature lovers
5/5

I had a great experience with Zamsato. The staff (Daniel and Tissah) are very friendly, professional and caring on their travelers. The tours themselves are also quite interesting and ideal for nature lovers. I took the whole Mosi-oa-Tunya day tour, which includes the Rhino Walk, the Victoria Falls from Zambia and the Zambezi navigation. I also took the Chobe NP tour. Great experience on both, they are for sure on the highlights of my trip. I heard very good comments from people who took with Zamsato the Kafue NP tour, which, if I had more time, I would have taken as well.
I fully recommend if you are travelling to Zambia.

4/5

Communication before the tour and the booking was very easy. Just no Visa or PayPal payment possible.
Pick- Up was a little bit unorganized but everything worked out well.
Our safari in Chobe NP was just awesome. Really nice boat and game drive safaris with all the animals you can expect. A lovely camp in the middle of the bush with a really nice team. Thanks a lot for this great experience.

Zamsato provided excellent touring and guiding of several National Parks in Zambia.
5/5

I traveled on one month road trip in Zambia, visiting several National Parks (NP). We focused primarily on Liuwa Plain NP, Kafue NP and South Luangwa NP. Our guide from Zamsato, Daniel, was superb driver, navigator, game-spotter, cook and organizer. Daniel is a Zambian resident and knows the country and its roads, wildlife, parks, lodges and campgrounds very well. He is respected as one of Zambia’s best overall guides and tour operators. Highly recommended.

Excelent Service!
5/5

Daniel (Zamsato) provided an excellent service. Helped me to plan my trip, tailored to my needs and preferences, provided pretty candid advice regarding options and activities, and he always provides immediate feedback to your questions. His choice of Croc Valley Camp in Southern Luangwa was excellent, and his advice on Rhino safari just perfect. Loved our trip to Zambia!
Thanks Daniel !

Active communication. They assured that we get everything we need for the family.
5/5

In mid-June 2018 our family - two adults and 9 and 8 years old children - joined the Chobe Overnight safari.

Booking and pre-safari arrangements worked fine and we got all the time relevant status information and guidance what to pack etc.

The journey started when Zamsato driver picked us from our hotel at the agreed time. He took us to border crossing, from where we continued across the river. At the other side another person were waiting for us and the drive with safari vehicle started.

We saw lion, leopard, elephant, hippo, giragge, etc. Just rhino and hyeena kept out of our eyesight. At Chobe you can see some animals almost all of the time - we had hardly any time just dricing around. Mid-June seemed to be good time to visit the park. Just notice, that night can be cold. Luckilyin the car we had blankets in our use.

We highly recommed to spend the night in the park. Dining table under the dark sky was great experience. Facilities (tents) were good and service excellent.

Had an amazing time!
5/5

After spending a while looking for a safari in Zambia, within our budget, we came across Zamsato Safaris and Daniel and what a wonderful time we had! Right from the start Daniel answered my many questions and came up with the best safari plan for us - the 4 day South Luangwa safari. Daniel picked us up in Lusaka and we drove to South Luangwa. After a fairly long drive, we were shocked by how awesome Croc Valley camp was, how close it was to the river and that the animals are free to roam through the camp. I don't think we could have stayed somewhere nicer, great pick Daniel! The early mornings were so worth it for the morning game drives with Boatu. All our meals were made by Jonathan and they were outstanding, thank you. I couldn't list all the animals we saw in South Luangwa but some highlights were the African wild dogs, African fish owl and lots of elephants and hippos! Having never been on a safari before we didn't know what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed the experience and appreciated Daniels wealth of knowledge. Not only does Daniel know an awful lot about wildlife, he also knows a lot about the communities and villages within Zambia which made for interesting discussions in the car. We enjoyed the trip so much that within 2 days of leaving Daniel in Livingstone, we had booked to go on his Chobe Day Trip tour! Daniel picked us up at our accommodation and helped us through the border control at Kazungula. Botswana is beautiful and even before we reached Chobe, we had seen several elephants at the side of the road! We went on a 3 hour Chobe river safari which was amazing. Being in a small boat we were able to get us close to the islands and river bank and be only a few meters away from the animals and birds which was incredible. We saw a whole range of bird species and got some cracking close up pictures of Kingfishers among others. We then had a buffet lunch at Chobe River Lodge and went out for an afternoon game drive.
Overall, my partner and I had a wonderful time on our 2 safaris with Zamsato and couldn't fault anything. Daniel your knowledge is incredible and hopefully we can tour again in the future. Thank you.

fantastic safari, big adventure and a lot of fun with Daniel
5/5

It was our first time traveling trough Africa and we trusted absolutely in Daniel´s experiance and plan. The visited places in Zambia and Malawi were great and we had the Feeling of beeing alone with the wildlife. Daniel found every animal and it didn´t matter where it tryed to hid. The visited lodges and tent camps were perfectly choosen and we get the best value for money. Communication and Service was very well done by Daniel, and his cooking abilities are very tasty. Because of the sickness of our son, some changes of the traveling plan were neccessary and Daniel coped them very well. It was a great benefit for us, that our guide Daniel speaks German especially for the german names of the animals. Our family is absolutely conviced, that we will go to Africa again with Daniel.

I did not know Zamsato could be that flexible when I booked and this was the best surprise during my holiday. Daniel is very knowledgeable about Zambia and some other African countries, wildlife, history... I really enjoyed the 2 weeks and will come back. I know I will visit exactly what I want next time and even realise my dream, I will just ask for it and follow the advices I have been given on that tour.

Totally loved my Safari with Zamsato, can't wait to go back to see more.
5/5

As a single traveler it’s always difficult to go on these types of excursions on your own, but Daniel (owner of Zamsato) was a great guide and very easy to get along with. He took care of every detail of the safari and it was all meticulously planned. Daniel also has great knowledge of the habitat and wildlife ranging from the Elephants to the insects, and everything in between. I visited strait after the rains, so there was lush growth hiding the game, but Daniel still spots and points them out and he was far quicker with his camera than I was, so nothing was missed.
