    “We did not want to leave! As our first ever safari, we had no idea what the expect but our three-night stay with Khwai Leadwood went beyond what we could have ever imagined! Comfortable accommodations, delicious food, and unbelievable wildlife. Our host Nico and the staff were so welcomng and our guide Banda was amazing – we could not have asked for a better guide. I cannot recommend more and I hope one day we will be able to return to this special place.”

    “We enjoyed three nights at this lodge en route to Botswana. The activities are plentiful: between multiple ways to see the Falls, wildlife, and a visit to the local village, we were always busy. But we could easily have spent more time at the Lodge itself, with peaceful Zambezi-view from the living areas, and the nicely-equipped little gym and library (with WiFi). Thorntree has all the comforts, and the area is teeming with wildlife, so if you are hesitant to go on a safari due to “roughing it,” be reassured. “


    “What an amazing experience we had on our first visit to Zimbabwe! Our stay at Somalisa Camp was beyond our greatest expectations! The entire staff was so warm, friendly, courteous, and helpful with all our questions and requests! Our guide, Bee, was wonderful – so knowledgeable and patient ! He made sure we were able to see such a variety of wildlife and beautiful scenery ! The sunsets were absolutely breathtaking!”
