Simon was an excellent guide. All the transport from Zambia and back was on time. The Falls were great and the walk through the Rain forest was lovely and Simon was very knowledgeable about the plants animals and insects. The cultural tour was very interesting and informative and made us realise how lucky we were. The High Tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel rounded off a really great day. We loved it.
Sure the dinner show is a tourist attraction but it was fantastic. Food was very large selection and good quality. Service very friendly and attentive. But the best were the drum show and the dance show. All guests were invited to participate and were involved in the program. A fun evening for all of us
Great Experience to see the local traditions. And our guide was very informative.
Everything was just right, the organization and the goals
