          Not so good (based on the tour organizer, not the tour/package itself)
          The trip overall was decent (6 out of 10). We did have issues when we arrived being placed in a lesser hotel. Per our initial booking we should have been placed at the Shearwater Explorers Village hotel/property, but instead we were forced to stay at the N1 hotel down the road. This was very disappointing and a much different experience than expected. As well, included in our package was lunch at Lookout Cafe after our tour of Victoria Falls. Upon arrival, the driver mentioned that the only charge would be alcohol. After we ate, the staff at the restaurant gave us a bill for the 3 of us. We inquired about the meal being included and no one we spoke to at the restaurant was aware of the meal being included in our package. When the driver arrived, he said he had to speak to someone at the restaurant but did not rectify our issue with payment. Given all of the actions and looking back at the situation, it seems that the coordinator of the tour and hotel may have had some secret “wink-wink agreement” that they would still charge those who had the 3-day package and get some sort of kick back. Lastly, the safari tour seemed to be much lesser quality than promised. In addition, the truck that my family and I was placed in was very old and one of the doors did not properly open. Moreover, the head guide had another gentleman with him who we are assuming may have been training to be a safari guide, but we were never told why the other “guide” would be in the vehicle. The training guide had poor judgment and a few times got too close to the elephants on the tour and we were almost charged by one teenage male elephant. To make matters worse, the trainee was not comfortable driving a manual transmission and stalled out so many times that we eventually got stuck in a sandy area off of the trail and the experienced guide had to drive the truck for the rest of the safari. Based on several issues listed above, we definitely would NOT recommend using the same person (Brighton- Tamuka Travel) that was responsible for this particular 3-day tour. As well, we are requesting refunds for the difference in price for the 2 nights staying at N1 hotel versus the Shearwater Explorers hotel AND the cost of our lunch at Lookout Cafe.

          Top marks to Tamuka Travel for going beyond expectations
          We had a really good experience with Tamuka Travel, managed by Brighton, who suggested at the outset that we could exchange our planned helicopter flight over Victoria Falls for a full-day safari in Botswana (starting at sunrise), instead a shorter "day". We took up that offer and had the benefit of a morning land safari and an afternoon river safari. That was and is the best time for both - we saw so much wildlife. The day before, we did the Victoria Falls walk with an excellent guide, as part of the normal package. The whole trip was very well organized and the accommodation commodious.

          Nostalgic fine dining by steam train
          A nostalgic dinner harking back to the early 1900s and the era of steam travel. We were collected by car and taken to the train where there was a red carpet and a friendly welcome. After being offered welcome drinks we were invited to sit in the lounge car - comfortable seats and wood decor. The train travelled to the Victoria Falls where we disembarked to see the Falls and the steam train. You have the opportunity to get into the engine cab and toot the whistle. There are several locals selling goods on the bridge. Great views of the Falls at sunset. After getting back on the train we took seats in the dining cars - tables for 2 or 4 people. We left the bridge and stopped for dinner. The dinner was five courses and was hot, tasty, well presented and served by a friendly team. The wine, beers and soft drinks were served on request without extra charges. All the staff gave attentive service. It was a special dining experience. We arrived back at the start point around 9pm.

          AMAZING!! Book this tour!!
          As a solo female traveler who had never been to Zimbabwe, I was nervous arriving. However, Tamuka Travel (specifically Brighton) made all of my worries go away! This "tour" is more an aggregation of many events. Brighton essentially was my personal driver and liaison for the entirety of my 4-day trip, and connected me with great people who I knew I could trust because of his stamp of approval. It was nice having everything booked in one place but being able to see and do everything that I wanted to in the Falls area. Upon arrival, he explained to me that there was some flexibility within my booking. Many of the hotels he works with had availability, so he gave me the choice for which one best fit the experience I was looking for (I ended up at the N1). Day 1 included airport pick up and a sunset river cruise with other travelers (light snacks and drinks included). Day 2 included a morning tour of the falls (He gave me a choice on timing - I ended up paying $25 to upgrade to a sunrise tour, which was awesome!), a helicopter trip, and an afternoon tour of the Livingstone Museum in Zambia (I also got some excellent curios from the markets on both sides of the falls). It was nice to see the town on that side. Day 3 included the day trip to Chobe in Botswana (morning game drive on land, buffet lunch at a nice hotel, and afternoon game drive on a boat to see more of the water sights), and Day 4 was when Brighton brought me back to the airport. Brighton stayed communicative with me throughout, and made sure I was brought to the right people for each activity. I also had some free time on Day 2 so decided to do the Gorge Swing, which he brought me to. Included in the booking were 2 lunches (days 2 and 3 - on day 2 Brighton asked me where I wanted to go, Day 3 was part of the safari) and 1 breakfast (Day 2). He gave great recommendations for my other meals around the area. Highly recommend this booking, especially for solo travelers.

          Fantastic evening with great views of the falls and really enjoyable atmosphere.
          What a wonderful experience in a "yester year" yet fully revamped beautiful carriage drawn by a steam engine. The views of the falls, together with a 5 course dinner, served by excellent staff and managed by a great manager, and host - Thulani.

          Great time, should be called Segway Safari
          Had a wonderful time. Our leader was very knowledgeable and described threes and birds along our ride. Transport was provided from lodgings.

          Wow! Wow! Wow! Exceptional.
          Incredible experience. Guide stopped at village to confirm they spoke English and would be prepared to welcome visitors. The whole family welcomed us in. The senior man spent 11/2 hours showing us around the village and answering questions and filling us in on deaths, births, medical, educational, betrothal aspects and so much more. The entire family was very welcoming and were very pleased with the gifts we brought from Canada. In addition we left behind some clothing we had bought for this trip that we wouldn’t use at home. They really liked that. Can’t say enough about how good this was.

          5 yrs later and still absolute champions
          I visited Victoria falls 5 years ago and used Tamaku Travel as my tour service provider. They were excellent and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Fast forward to 2024, I was stuck for a transfer from my accommodation in Victoria falls town and needed to get multiple accommodation in Livingstone, Zambia (my travel companian was staying somewhere else). I emailed Tamuka and they were quick to respond on the same day and provided multiple options to pay (cash is limited in Zimbabwe so I preferred PayPal). Brighton met us promptly ontime at our accommodation, gave us tips and info for navigating the country, got us quickly thru immigration and safely to our respective accommodations. 5* service all the way! Thanks Tamuka!

          Unique, exhilarating, and unforgettable!
          The highlight of our African trip. Although devil's pool was closed, Angel pool was as good if not better. Unlike Devil's pool which requires swimming to the pool, you can literally walk to Angel pool, which is also right next to the fall. It's an exhilarating and scary experience, perhaps nowhere on earth alike. The guides we're totally professional, guiding us to the edge and shot pictures for us individually. I recommend the small group tour so you have more time to take incredible photos. Our next group was a standard group so they couldn't take many photos individually. The pool is small with quite strong current, so it felt quite scary when you were there. Highly, highly recommended.

          A lifetime experience
          It was a day to remember. The staff and all the organization of the experience were perfectly fine. They take you from your hotel, tranfer you to the starting point, then by boat they take you to the pool. It depends on the water level which pool you are going to swim. We were at the Angel's pool. The view was great, the staff help you to get to the edge of the pool and take photos of you. I recommend it to everyone who wants some adrenaline and wants to have unforgettable experience while the trip.

          Angels pool is nice too though.
          The views are amazing and everyone looked after me very well ! I would had appreciated if the company informed me in advance that the devil’s pool was not open due to the current, as that was the experience I booked for. The breakfast was very good!

          Must Do experience
          A must do experience when you visiting the falls. There are no fences (of course!) or real security measures other than two people holding your feet when you’re facing the drop which can be scary to some, but it’s a breathtaking experience. The staff take great photos of you as well. ;-)

        They actually ended up switching our game drive and river cruise around so that the cruise was in the morning. This was done for maximum game viewing at those times. We saw a ton of elephants up close as well as a number of other animals, including hippos, giraffes, impala, kudu, crocodiles, baboons, Cape buffalo, warthogs, meerkats, Jesus birds and many others. The game drive was not private as promised, and we went on a set trail with another group in our vehicle, but I don’t think it would have made any difference in the experience.
