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.

Perfectly happy

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.

Best agency to visit Zimbabwe and Botswana

Africa Zim is a very professional and reliable agency. We did a 9 day trip around Zimbabwe and Botswana and the whole experience was amazing. Our guide, Pamela, was our driver, bringing us everywhere, stopping at the best places and we had very interesting and funny conversations with her, we are missing her a lot!! We truly recommend this agency as everything was very well organized, Blessing was very helpful from the first contact through email and speak with us by phone to solve all our doubts before the trip.
I hope many people can enjoy this experience as we did and you get to visit these amazing countries. We get to see all the animals during the safaris and excursions, including lions, hippos, elephants, giraffe, zebra, croco, buffalo, etc etc...
Very good value for money!

Excellent Experience on Vic Falls to Hwange 5-Day Tour

Africa Zim proved to be a fantastic choice for our first trip to Africa. We did a 5-day tour that included visits to Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park (among many other activities), and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our driver/guide, Cosmus, was extraordinarily friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible (he provided transportation to and from the airport as well as to the separate Air B&B that we had booked after the tour). A great way to travel Zimbabwe!

Amazing tour and super helpful guides

The tour in itself was an amazing experience, the guides showed experience, commitment and knowledge to make the experience complete in each stage. They also had all the necessary implements for assuring comfort during the whole trip. Moreover, the guides and operators where ready to help in situations that were beyond their responsibility regarding visas and border crossing allowing us to solve problems easily to continue with the experience. I would like to congratulate deeply the whole team for an amazing complete experience.
