Customer Reviews

Excellent - David Bernberg


This day trip consisted of a morning river tour and afternoon safari with lunch in between at Chobe Lodge. Chobe Lodge is a stunning place and the buffet was great. The river tour was nice but you couldn't see any animals up close. Additionally, I think the guides could be a little more informative. The Spanish-speaking guide was much more engaged and informative than the English-speaking guide. Then during the afternoon safari, you saw alot of the same animals but closer up, as you drive around the river area. All in all it was a nice way to spend a day - Agata Kadylak


We were picked up on time from our Hotel. Everything was explained well re Border and drivers. We loved our day seeing lots of animals from both the boat and the jeep. The only thing was when we arrived at the Hotel, there were HUGE NUMBERS of people arriving and not enough staff to sort them. Also lunch was catered for a lot of people, but dessert food did run out for late comers. Just a bit of fine tuning in these two areas would make a big difference. - Robin Gemmell


Excellent day, far exceeded our expectations. Pick up from hotel on time, organized, great lunch. Highlight was seeing 40-60 elephants up close both during the boat portion and land portion. Also saw other animals during land portion. We needed money from an ATM in Botswana since ATMs did not work in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, and driver helped us by stopping at an ATM. This day was the highlight of our visit to Victoria Falls -- extremely worthwhile. - Mark Gothberg


It was an amazing day, and superbly organised by Horizon from pick up, to drop off. The drivers and guides were knowledgable, friendly, on time and helpful. Highly recommended! - Adam Schulman
