Extremely professional and personalised service.

Africa Zim Travel & Tours more than met our expectations. From our first contact at Vic Falls Airport for our local transfer to our hotel, Blessing and his team were absolutely amazing. All arrangements were done on time and we were blown away by how friendly and knowledgeable everyone was. We booked a evening dinner cruise on the Zambezi which was spectacular. Fantastic boat and the food and service was of the highest quality. The game we saw both in the river and along the bank was fantastic. A memory we will never forget. This was followed the next day by a spectacular one day excursion to Chobe Game Reserve in Botswana. The pick up at our hotel was exactly on time and as arranged and we had a very comfortable drive down to the border. The game drive in the morning was spectacular and the afternoon river cruise in the afternoon was super special. Our guide for the day was very friendly and knowledgeable and we had so many special moments of seeing different animals up close it was hard to take in at times. The lunch provided was also perfect. I would certainly recommend Africa Zim Travel & Tours. They went out of their way to make sure all arrangements were clear ahead of our arrival and they checked in on us through our short stay to make sure everything was going ok. I would definitely use them again and feel their attention to detail and very personalised service makes them a stand out tourist operator.

Very helpful and reliable

From the first contact, they replied very quickly, resolving all our doubts. During our staying they were very punctual and reliable. All the logistics and coordination worked well. The safaris were great! We saw lot of animals! Additionally, we changed countries (Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia) and they helped us with the visas and took us to do the required PCR tests to cross borders. I highly recommend Africa Zim Travel / Tours.

Africa Zim Travel was one of the most attentive travel operators I have ever booked for my travel.

I worked with Blessing at Africa Zim Travel to put together a short three day, two night package in Victoria Falls. Blessing was excellent in providing me updated information and understanding what I wanted to do during my short time in Zimbabwe. We arrived in Livingstone, Zambia because air service there was better than flying into Victoria Falls itself from Kenya. The border crossing into Zimbabwe was a bit tricky but Africa Zim guided us expertly through the border crossings with minimal disruption, even with COVID tests required and scrutinized. Once in Victoria Falls all was pleasant and enjoyable. The Hotel Ilala was impressive with a view of the spray from the Falls from our room and the lovely grounds. The staff was exceptionally friendly and attentive. Our evening boat cruise on the Zambezi River was incredible with sightings of hippo, elephant, and crocodiles. We had booked a day trip to Botswana's Chobe River. That was an absolutely amazing day with more elephants than I could ever count. Excellent guide met us at the border of Zimbabwe and Botswana named Lance. He switched our boat time on the river to afternoon instead of in the morning because he knew it was a better time to be on the river for elephant viewing. Blessing drove us to and from the border and waited all day at the border for us. That was above and beyond the call of duty. The evening was passed at a Boma Dinner. It was definitely touristy but still lots of fun. Trying various types of African foods was the best part of the evening. All in all Africa Zim did a great job and I highly recommend them.

Our experience to Chobe National Park was amazing and funco

Communications were all on line with prompt replies. The coordination of different drivers/tour leaders all went smoothly and the activities exceeded our expectations. Once inside the park, the animal safaris were great and the number of animals sighted was terrific. The camping set up was well done and staff very friendly and capable.

Very helpful. They let us know what we needed well in advance.

The tour guides and camp helpers were incredible. Our guide knew the park and showed us all of the animals. We saw every animal in the park except for the elusive cheetah. Back at the camp, the porter's took care of our every need and then some. They set up fire pits for us to sit around a camp fire, made amazing food (way too much food!), made sure we could take showers to wash off the dirt, and had tents all set up for us. They did everything to make us as comfortable as possible. It was a great, once in a lifetime trip!

A Well Organised, fully catered for, money's worth, adventurous safari experience

From the time of enquiring about the booking, to arriving at the pick up destination, the company kept you fully aware of what was needed and required from you from there end and what was to be expected for the duration of your trip. They were polite and prompt and made you feel like everything was taken care of. When we arrived at Vic Falls airport we were greeted by out tour guide Pam. She was very lovely, spoke great english and was super informative.She helped us to book our extra activities we wanted to do like the village tour and made sure we knew what our itinerary was for the coming days. She would usually just pick us up and drop us off at our destinations. She took us all the way into Botswana and helped us check in and book our safari tours but then she had to drive that day all the way back to ZIM which was a bummer. We would of liked it if she stayed there with us for the two nights and we could get to know her more and feel a bit more settled knowing someone was there that we knew or we could ask for help or things. It felt like she was too far away if we had a problem or need advice. I would hope that the company would look into allowing there tour guides to at least stay in Botswana close to the clients just in case of any emergencies or problems. Otherwise this company was 10/10. Thank you for your hospitality and life long memories Pam. We miss you, Amanda and Jenique

Africa Zim travel were very attentive and hands on taking over when a major uk company let us down.

Blessing and Pamela treated us like friends making our arrangements before and during our stay and providing transport themselves. Most of our communication was by email, which was usually answered very quickly. They exceeded our expectations.
We organised the main element of our trip with African Horse Safaris at Macatoo in the Okavango Delta, who were excellent. Our stay on the Chobe River was interesting.The driven safari there was more like a crowded trip through a commercial game park but the River Cruises were excellent and a wonderful relaxed way to get close to the game. Blessings booked us into Phezulu lodge for our stay at Victoria Falls, which was like a small modern motel with its own pool and bar and suited us for the end of our trip.

Victoria Falls - Chobe NP - Elephant Sands - Okavango Delta

Highly recommend Africa Zim! Our honeymoon throughout Zimbabwe and Botswana was amazing and Africa Zim was flawless with everything. Our guide, Moto, is an incredible man and so fun to be around. He is incredibly smart, very professional and has a great sense of humor. He made our trip an amazing experience and taught us so much about culture, nature, wildlife and everything that makes Africa so awesome. When booking with Africa Zim, see if you can request Moto to be your guide for the week - I promise you won’t regret it!

amazing tour of Zimbabwe

From the beginning Blessing provided excellent communication and helped us plan a great trip. We wanted to do one of their tours backwards and change the itinerary a bit and he arranged everything. The accommodations they booked us in were all of a good standard and food was good too. We especially liked seeing the elephant wander through the parking lot of the Hwange Safari Lodge after dinner. Our favorite activities were walking over Mutarazi falls on a suspension bridge, touring the Great Zimbabwe, tracking rhinos and visiting a prehistoric cave with Ian (basically the Zimbabwean crocodile hunter! He was so fun to spend the day with and we got really close to rhinos!), seeing Victoria Falls especially from the Devil's Pool, and finishing the trip with a sunset cruise on the Zambezi river. So many great memories! I would recommend Africa Zim to anyone!

Great Safari Experience

What I like about Africa Zim is they reply to your questions and take care of your concerns. From the pick up, the camping, the tour and until the drop off, it all went perfectly as planned.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience in Africa because of Africa Zim. Won’t hesitate to use them again when we go back.
