Booking with us
As Tour Guides working with travellers over the years we have realised that the traditional way of traveling offered by big companies in the industry was not sustainable to a huge number of travellers. Regardless of our expertise then we could not divert from set tours inorder to meet the expectations of many tourists and we realise it was not fair for the image of Africa. We understand deeply the differences in the range of expectations of people on holidays and for some it could be a once off chance to travel to Africa. We value that and we intend to uphold that important decision you made to visit us.
Our Home is Africa
We are based in Victoria Falls, the landmark that is central to Eastern Africa and Southern Africa travellers. We were born and bred in Africa and understand our different ways of welcoming visitors in the multi-cultural region of SADC.
Based on our many years of experience, safari stands out to be one of the main reasons why tourists visit Southern Africa. Tours that are programmed have very little chance of being changed regardless of the events at different stages of the tour. On our Tailor-made tours we give the opportunity to decide how you want to spend your time and to pursue your your priorities according to you time. In this regard we personalise your tour; plan with you and execute the tour with you!!!
Our small group tours only requires a confirmation of 5 people. That makes it easy for travellers to travel with their loved ones or to simple meet up with new people. Upon confirmation, tours will depart on an agreed time and schedule confirmed by all participates. Small groups are way more interesting and easy to alter the schedules if it's all agreed that there is need to.
Our team of Guides will make sure they give you much information as you require. Our Operations are different from big companies with so much overheads to pay for there running costs. That means we aim to give the lowest workable running costing of the tours as much as possible while trying to meet your expectations. We will be very transparent in communicating exactly what we can do for you.
We understand that in traveling we use flights and vehicles all of which uses fossil fuels.(not so great for our environment!). However with us Zambezi Africa Tours have partnered with local non-governmental organisations which focus on Environmental protection. We have in previous years of our operations planted close to 15 000 indigenous trees in partnership with Forestry Commission of Zimbabwe, Environmental Buddies Zimbabwe Trust, local Victoria Falls communities and students.
Outside of our daily routine we take time to help local communities that we outside of towns and big cities. We believe when we empower learners and teachers we help change the future generations of leaders in society. We have partnered with Monde Primary School and Sizinda Secondary school in Hwange West District of Zimbabwe, to uplift the standard of learning through provision of reliable solar systems to power the schools. We have donated books and stationery through networking with tourists who shared the same vision with us.
