Our sincere thanks the AWS team for making our trip to Zimbabwe more a life experience than a holiday. This was our first journey overseas since Covid and it was perfect from the smallest detail to the amazing experiences which will stay in our memories forever.

We have been travelling through Africa with your advice, support and guidance for more than 20 years and this latest adventure in the Zimbabwean bush confirms our view that you and your team are the very best in the business.

Jan & Glen Smith, Zimbabwe - Oct 2022
“Our experience with African Wildlife Safaris and our consultant Michael was overwhelmingly positive.  Our travel between camps was all seamless and well organised.  The camps he advised us to visit were all varied and fantastic in their own ways including: the staff, food and our personal guides.  The stars of the show were the game drives with the animals we saw from the smallest mongoose to the biggest elephant and everything in between.  We had such a great time.  This was our first safari and it was beyond our expectations big thanks to Michael and AWS.”
Stephen & Sue Lewis, South Africa & Botswana - September 2022

“We have recently returned from our “bucket list” trip to Namibia.

After several months planning with our Destination Specialist ( General Manager Anne-Marie Zambelli) we have nothing but the highest praise for her comprehensive knowledge & first-class choices for lodges/accommodation & travel options for our trip. A wonderful trip to a marvellous country which we recommend should be on all Africa “bucket-lists”.

We recommend without hesitation African Wildlife Safaris to handle any enquiries and bookings for a stress-free holiday.”

Julie & John, Namibia - 2024
We had an awesome experience! Every day brought new and exciting experiences which were amplified by the lack of interest that the animals had for humans and vehicles. They almost looked through us which meant that we could get incredibly close at all times. The trip was planned well since it covered wetlands, swamps, woodlands, mountains and plains. Our tour guide, Iddy, was fantastic with deep knowledge of animal behaviour that allowed us to anticipate where they go. Overall an amazing experience that we will never forget.
