        Amazing trip to Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park!
        We recently returned to the UK from 9 days in Zimbabwe and Zambia, with 6 of those days spent in the care of Simon from Africa Beast Safaris. Simon booked accommodation, tours and travel, and either shepherded us himself or arranged transportation as necessary. We decided to book with Simon because he had great reviews, his quotation was very clear and he was responsive in all our pre-arrival communications. Our experience lived up to his excellent reputation and we loved our holiday at Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park. Simon was friendly and attentive with a great sense of humour, responding to our requests and making sure we were enjoying ourselves. My wife and I are very happy to recommend Simon and his company. PS Ask him about the statue Elise bought at Victoria Falls if you'd like a giggle.

        For an Amazing Safari/African experience book with Simon of Africa Beast Safari!
        By accident we came upon Africa Beast Safari while we were in a world cruise in early April this year (2024) as we wanted to go overland for safari and tour Victoria Falls. Simon, who runs Africa Beast Safari is incredible! Simon responded to our inquiry promptly and professionally and we booked for six days...Victoria Falls, Chobe National Park and Hwange National Park. Simon took care of EVERYTHING...our transfers, hotels, guides, safaris, boat cruises, helicopter ride, Boma dinner and an awesome traditional village tour. One we booked our tour with Simon he arranged ALL the details. Every guide was on time and very professional. We always felt safe and we absolutely had a BLAST! Our accommodations were so amazing and the food excellent! Way beyond our expectations! We saw so many animals and felt that we had truly immersed ourselves into this beautiful country. Simon even took us to dinner and we had the privilege of really getting to know this amazing man...he is now our friend for life. If you are looking for a great experience with no worries Simon is your man! We highly recommend Africa Beast Safari!

        Fantastic Experience at Vic Falls and Beyond!
        If you're planning a trip to Victoria Falls I highly recommend Simon and Africa Beast Safaris. We had originally just booked a Hwange day tour with Africa Beast, but Simon offered to provide transport to and from the airport and helped us book activities for the rest of the trip as well. We enjoyed a sunset cruise on the Zambezi, the Gorge Swing, a Helicopter Ride, White Water rafting, and of course the Hwange Safari, all of which Simon coordinated for us and each was an incredible experience in and of itself. Each excursion is operated by a different provider, but Simon arranged everything for us to fit with our schedule. In addition to being a great local guide, Simon was consistently punctual and professional and a huge help with making the most of our trip to Vic falls. Can't recommend enough!!!

        Good But Not Without Issues
        We were hoping this cruise would be better. We carefully considered all the choices provided to us by The Victoria Fall Hotel and thought this would be the best. We reserved the upper deck because viewing and services were described as being the best. We were picked up at our hotel along with another couple we did not know. We then made 3 more stops to get more passengers. This was fine and done in a timely comfortable fashion. Our driver, I think his name was Leo was a little too chatty for us. After the fact, we wished he had been more chatty about the procedure to get us back to our hotels. More about that later. We had assigned seating which unfortunately for us was in the blazing sun. Others were seated undercover, we were not aware that there was a choice. Luckily, we found seating elsewhere without the help of staff. The crew seemed overrun with customers as the wait for drinks took a long time at the start of the cruise The info the hotel gave us was that maximum seating was 20. There were more than that on our deck. One large group had young children and one was overcome with the heat. They had her covered up on the couch with pillows to protect her from the sun. That was a little concerning as she looked unwell. Another young girl was running and tripped over a long metal piece dividing the outside area from the covered one. She landed on her face. Seemed unhurt just scared. Her parents should have been watching her but weren't. We enjoyed the gourmet canapes provided by the Victoria Falls Hotel and the drinks were served in a timely manner after the initial start of the cruise. Animal sighting was not great, but that's not anyone's fault. The boat was very nice and looking at the others on the river, we were glad we chose this one. Staff made good drinks and were pleasant. The sunset was beautiful. Our biggest complaint was the handling of our return to The Victoria Falls Hotel. We got off the boat and went to the designated area. Everyone else did too, except for 3 people. Instead of our driver going to see where they were after a reasonable time, he did not. We sat on the bus for over 30 minutes waiting. After about another 15 or more minutes the driver went to look for them. He should have done that long before !!! He came back and said they were staying there and not returning with us. That was rude on their part, but the driver should have gone to look for them a lot sooner. It was only a short walk back to the boat. We left without them, but we wasted a lot of time waiting. We missed our dinner reservation because of it, as we got back too late. I think the drivers should make it clear that you will be left behind if you do not show up at the appointed time. Our driver was too busy making jokes when he should have been doing just that.

        Dinner cruise on the Zambezi River
        This was amazing! The dinner cruise starts about one hour before sunset, so we were on the river during sunset. We saw an elephant crossing / swimming across the entire river. The captain of the boat was very willing to turn the boat around so that we could all watch. The food was delicious. The drinks were excellent. The staff were very friendly and attentive to any needs. Overall, a wonderful experience!

        Great all round experience !!😉
        Brilliant, not commercialised so you will only be with a ranger and see the big five 😉.just make sure your jeep has comfy seats or you will suffer . There are brick toilets on this tour which is a good send if you have a weak bladder .

        What a wonderful Emotional magically place
        Had a brilliant brilliant day doing a water and land safari. Water Guide Vincent was fantastic. Knowledgeable, insightful and what a set of eyes, could tell a Crocodile from a log at 250m with out Binoculars. Saw loads of families of elephants (including one that was 1 week old!) Hippos, Crocs, Water Buffalo, Birds (Including an Eagle), Impala and a heard of Zebra. On the Land Safari, more Elllies, Impala, Lions, Giraffe and a Jackal. Food at the hotel was superb, Fillet steak for Lunch!! Even crossing in Botswana was good fun - the bridge and the people. One of the best days of my Life

        Never Happened
        When I checked with the Provider to confirm pickup, I was advised that they do not pickup from Zambia side of river. Money was refunded promptly. Reservation never should have been accepted given the Provider knew the hotel pickup location was outside their working area. TripAdvisor and Provider need better coordination

        One of Africa’s great wildlife parks, Chobe stars in many ways. Time in Savuti was rewarded with lions and wild dogs. The northern sector has big elephants and the wide Chobe River, with large herds of cape buffalo, zebra and impala. The lions were really good, following a dozen from near the bush, across a road and down to the river road where their approach caused five errant buffalo to gallop back to the herd. Some of the roads look quite new. Wish some of the signage could have been renovated.

        Excellent game viewing
        Simon was extremely helpful & answered my emails very quickly .He also was accomodating in changing our booking due to a health issue. On the way back from the airport on arrival I needed cash and he was very patient while I had to go to 3 different ATMs to get the money ( in US $ or Zim $) . The pickup on the day was punctual & the border crossing very smooth, after the drive to get there. The guides were knowledgeable . We did the safari on two successive days - each providing a different experience and explanations of the alternate guides. The drive on the second day was in a fairly big vehicle with the guide in the cabin in front ,talking through a window- not a great arrangement . We saw lots of game including lion and a special view of crocs feeding on a buck they had killed.

        Not a trustworthy tour operator
        I can not recommend Africa Beast for any tour given my recent experience. I left extremely disappointed in how they misrepresented themselves and the poor quality of the company they handed us off to. To begin, I was told by Africa Beast that they had room for the Chobe tour but in reality they made a deal with another company to add me to their tour to make a commission. When I went to pay I was confused as all the staff were wearing outfits with another companies name, I asked them what was going on and they told me the 2 businesses "help each other out" but that they also are a good company. I searched all the platforms for reviews and this other company has no reviews on ANY platform that I can find. Unfortunately, I had already paid and the tour was the next morning, so was left with little option. On the day of our tour, the tour company cut corners to save a few dollars at every opportunity. First, our driver showed up with no water for anyone on the drive to Botswana which took an hour and a half with pickups. When we transferred to the safari guide in Botswana he had a barebones offering of only 5 small waters for 6 guests and a few soft drinks for an open air safari in 90 degree weather. Then our guide tried to take us to some ratty hole in the wall b&b to pre-order our lunch instead of taking us to the river lodge we were promised. I challenged the guide and told him we were supposed to be at one of the river lodges for a buffet lunch and he pretended to be confused but quicky enough we had our "reservation" and were on our way. Since the guide pays cash to the restaurant after lunch ( I saw this happen), they pocket the difference, the cheaper the lunch, the more they keep. The other guests were just as angry as we were and couldn't believe what was happening. At our buffet lunch we were told NO DRINKS INCLUDED and we had to pay for these ourself even though the tour says all drinks are included. Many guests chose to order no drinks at all because they had no idea how much they'd be charged. The tour itself was just ok, the guide was nowhere near as good as our guide in South Africa, he had a few facts on the more common animals but often didn't stop to explain the lesser known animals we were seeing or simply drove past them. My takeaway is that Chobe is so full of animals that it doesn't matter who you book with, you'll see plenty. With that said, I can't recommend booking with Africa Beast or Fuhara Safaris as you just don't know what you're going to get. For $180 USD this is not acceptable service.

        With my friend Simon travel agent "AFRICA BEAST SAFARI in Zimbabwe" we leave Victoria Falls for Hwange Safari Lodge a great adventure on the roads of Zimbabwe in his company HWANGE SAFARI LODGE On the edge of Hwange National Park, the lodge offers a wide choice of accommodation. Overlooking a waterhole heavily used by elephant who come daily in the evening to drink and continue their rte, floodlit at night, day/night game drives The Hwange Safari Lodge is located on the border of Hwange National Park and overlooks a point of water for animals very frequented. Just a two-hour drive from Victoria Falls, you're in big game country. As a premier wildlife sanctuary, Hwange is home to elephants, buffaloes, sables, lions, cheetahs, kudus, impalas, wildebeests, zebras and more. Accommodation at Hwange Safari Lodge offers a good range of choices, from suites to standard rooms. On site the lodge has two restaurants and two bars. Activities are primarily centered around game viewing, which can be done early in the morning, during the day or at night. I had a great stay organized by the agency “AFRICA BEAST SAFARI”

        The mighty 18 Vic falls tour
        Me and my 17 workmates had a group visit to Vic falls and Simon organised everything for us, from the airport transfer in a beautiful and luxurious bus, with a very warm welcome. We had a guided tour of the Vic falls, sunset cruise, game drive, quad biking, the village tour and not forgetting the Boma dinner, hotel pick ups to different venues, arranged on point and on time by Simon. Inhouse intertainment arranged as requested, ooh we had a good time. The young man surely knows his job to make people happy and comfortable. He will definately arrange my next trip. Choose him to arrange the visit to your next destination and you will not regret it. Simon you are amazing, keep up the good job.

      My experience with Beast Safaris was excellent Firstly, the transfer from the airport was great and our driver Simon was very friendly and told us all about Victoria Falls the history, the culture and what activities it has to offer. Theawhite Water rafting experience was great. All staff were helpful and always happy which made us enjoy the White Water rafting even more. The bridge swing and bridge slide were amazing. The staff were helpful and the experience was great once again. I would recommend the Beast to anyone visiting the falls and who wants a great experience with high standards of activities.
