Amazing experience, outstanding guide
Have already shared Africa Zim's contact info with friends along with highest of recommendations! The hotels/lodges they found were A+, with a special shout out to Nata Lodge, Botswana, as our favorite of the properties y'all selected, and the giant buffet at Cresta Maun also deserves a compliment. Best of the destinations was a day in a flat-bottom canoe in the Okavango Delta - sheer bliss. Our trip guide, Cosmos, was aces - like a member of our extended family from day one. We are in the midst of planning a cross-country tour in the U.S. soon and sure wish Cosmos could join us here! Eager to return to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana one day, but only if we can re-hire Cosmos :) Thanks for the trip of a lifetime, and a lifetime of memories!

Accessible, flexible, great at responding and clarifying any queries.
So we chose Africa Zim Travel as their itinerary was pretty spot on at a really reasonable price. I reached out and had great communication throughout. Blessing was awesome at prompt responses, adjusting our schedule to suit us.
On arriving at the airport he was there to collect us, went out of his way to sort out requests for extra activities and was generally lovely and welcoming.
Nothing ever seemed too much trouble, we had his number for any queries and the whole trip went with out hitch!

Good value for money and professional service
Very professional assistance provided by Blessing and Pamela from the office. Most importantly great driver/guide Mutho who took care of us for 12 days of our road trip through Zimbabwe and Botswana

Excellent guides, extremely helpful, always available to assist
Blessing and the team where great to deal with from the start, having never visited prior they booked what I needed at a very affordable rate, ensured I had the correct currency conversion, on arrival we where greeted with friendly smiles polite English speaking guides and air-conditioned vehicles in good order.
The river cruise we where booked on through them was amazing and once again very affordable and on time with great guides.
Day trip into chobe ( Bostwana) was great and we where walked through all boarder tranfers and assisted into all transport that was older but clean and reliable.
All guides where knowledgeable and at no time did we feel unsafe.
Highly recommended them.

Excellent organization and choices of lodgings and activities.
Our tour operator, Muto, was really fantastic. He made sure we experienced a very easy trip and Africa Zim Tours provided a well rounded itinerary. We did the 12 nights in Zimbabwe and Botswana and Muto was there for us every step of the way from the time we stepped off the plane in Victoria Falls to the flight back to Johannesburg from Maun. We stayed in very nice lodges, luxury tents and rustic bush tenting for a well rounded experience. We covered a decent amount of the upper Zimbabwe/Botswana area so we were able to see a really nice assortment of wildlife and terrain. He even took us to a Vulture Feeding that we had heard about that was not on the itinerary. We felt safe at all times and our accommodations and food were really good. You get a lot of value for your money and we highly recommend taking this tour especially for your first time to these countries. The guides are local and they know how to communicate well with the locals to provide you with the best of services!

Very professional tour operator. Everything went to plan. Saw 4 of the BIG FIVE!
We had an absolutely fantastic time. Safari of a lifetime! We had a 3 day safari with 2 nights in the Chobe National Park with all the animals. All food was included. Was picked up at the hotel in Victoria Falls and driven to Kasane, Botswana. Early afternoon Chobe River boat safari - words cannot describe - birds, buffalo, hippos, crocs... The following three days and two nights was the land safari in the National Park close to the Chobe river. Again, words cannot describe! It was like Jurassic Park! Kennedy, our very knowledgeable and friendly guide, was fantastic and explained everything about the animals and birds. He worked very hard and made every effort for us to see as many animals and birds as possible. We saw many lions, water buffalo, elephants, impala, giraffes, baboons, monkeys, jackals, eagles, vultures, crocs, many many beautiful birds etc. The camping experience was fantastic also, No fence, just lights around the camp at night. The animals keep themselves to themselves. Going to sleep and getting up in the morning with the bush noises and singing birds! An elephant passed by one night and a giraffe was seen near the camp in the morning. Thoroughly recommend Africa Zim Travel & Tours!

Very well organized tour at a affordable price
Bearing in mind, this is a budget tour, the experience was fantastic. The quality of accommodation exceeded expectations, particularly in Zimbabwe, and the organization was terrific. Despite it being relatively cheap, we saw exactly what you would if you were on an expensive safari as we’re in the game parks next to the more opulent tours. Overall an excellent experience. The tour guides were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, Regards, Steve Ramsay, and Karen Honner

Very well organised, efficient and good value
We had 6 days in Zimbabwe with Africa Zim. Planning begin pre-covid and we finally got to take the trip in December. During this time they were efficient and organised with communication and always reliable. We spent 6 days with Kosmas and visited Vic Falls, Hwange, Gt Zimbabwe & Harare. Vic Falls was amazing and is highly recommended. The wet season meant that Hwange was a bit disappointing although the Hwange Lodge hotel was great and we saw lots of elephants at the water hole. Gt Zimbabwe was a good stop although it's a long drive to get there. Zimbabwe is a friendly, welcoming and safe place to visit that is pretty well set up for visitors. Africa Zim is recommended and we really enjoyed our tour.

Right from the start when he picked us up, our guide was very friendly and helpful. Everything went smoothly and as discussed beforehand. He always adapted the programme to our wishes and we also had time for last-minute plans. The time flew by, even on the long car rides. The hotels and the rooms were always the best and the tour guides were also very good. I can recommend them as we were happy as can be.

Amazing selection of activities and places where to sleep
Positive aspects: selection of the places where we slept was all amazing (apart from Cresta, too empty and "average"). Food was always outstanding, especially at Chobe. We loved all the activities proposed and what we did. We appreciated a lot the guides at Chobe, at Salty Pan and at Okavango. They were very skilled and told us a lot of interesting information.
To be improved: we would have not left so many times empty, we would have exploited better the time by doing even more stuff, this tour could have easily be done in 6 days instead of 9. The guides were nice and sweet guys, but one of them would have been sufficient. We were expecting more outgoing guides, who could be able to entertain us a bit more. Blessing and Sheila are great people but very shy and we believe it was not necessary for them to be with us at the salty pans activities... we could have done it on our own enjoying the rest of the group we were traveling with.
Overall very positive, we already recommended your tour to other friends of us.
