Utter care and professionality
I traveled to Zambia with a friend in December 2021, on a trip organized by Kerry at Ntanda Ventures. I don't usually book with a travel operator but I decided to give it a try, and what a pleasant surprise it was. Kerry organized a one week trip that made us discover two of the best sites Zambia can offer: the South Luangwa National Park, and the Victoria Falls at Livingstone. In both sections of the trip, I really felt the attention to detail and the professionality of somebody who's been in the travel industry for long, knows the ins and out of the country, and knows how to handle unexpected changes a customer might face in light of the pandemic. My friend and I contracted a Covid infection just a week short of traveling to Zambia, and Kerry took care of rescheduling everything for us. On our way to the country, we read on the news that Zambia might put in quarantine, but Kerry was reassured us that it was not official news and told us exactly what to do at the border to have a smooth entrance into the country. Both the campsite at the South Luangwa NP and the hotel in Livingstone were marvelous and really made us feel us spoiled. Activities had been organized for us for every day, including game drives and a boat cruise, and we always had somebody from the two accomodations taking care of us, picking us at the airport and helping us during our stay, always with Kerry in the background for additional help. Overall, a great vacation and a great and professional tour operator. Thank you Kerry for your hard work!
Ntanda ventures were amazing.They made booking our family trip to Sth Luangwa trouble free. Prompt replies to our many emails and professional customer service was always given. Would definitely use them for any future trips to Zambia.
Ntanda Ventures helped me plan and book a trip to Lower Zambezi while my brother was visiting the country. They were responsive whenever I had a question, were knowledgable about the options, and clearly listened when I gave them information or asked questions. I would book through them again in a heartbeat.
We both lived in Kitwe Zambia in the 60's,70's & early 80's and had not been back since I left in 1984. It was a wonderful memorable trip where we started in Lusaka, then went down to The Victoria Falls, back to Lusaka, up to Kitwe and finally to Luangwa Game Reserve. We met friends who we had not seen for over 30 years. A really wonderful trip all put together with the professional help of Ntanda Ventures.
05/Honest, Authentic, Professional and Understanding
Honest & Authentic: I can describe Ntanda Ventures as very organized with a unique personal touch and great understanding of the travelers wishes while adding the knowledge and experience of a national tour operator that knows the country and cares about its visitors.
Ntanda Ventures offered one of the best experiences in my 20 years of professional and private travel in Africa. Ntanda Ventures was recommended to me by a collegue who works in Zambia. In my careeer as a conservationist I have been to many places in Africa. I recently had an oppertunity to visit Zambia on a work trip and wanted to add a few days as a holiday. Kerry & Christina from Ntanda really wanted to understand my idea of a safari and they proposed a trip to McBrides camp (I highly recommend McBrides!) in Kafue National Park based on my wishes. It was a perfect match!
Ntanda Ventures really wants to understand the wishes of their clients and tries to offer thém the experience that fits! (rather than fitting the client into a package deal...) Ntanda offers that personal touch that is often hard to find!
The logistics such as cars with a responsible driver, hotesl and other travel preparations where carefully prepared and worked out well. I had payed in advance so I had no worries about the bills and prices which is very convenient if you are on a break.
Zambia is a beautiful country with a lot of untouched spaces & National Parks full of wildlife, birds and culture that is rarely seen in Africa.
I would come back to Zambia whenever I can and would ask Ntanda again to organize my trip.
An experience to never forget
A friend and I visited Zambia and Ntanda Ventures took care of the organization of the trip.
Kerry knew exactly what kind of itinerary we were looking for and schedule a trip that was far beyond our imagination.
We visited South Luangwa National Park and from there we finished in Victoria Falls. Even though it was a short itinerary, Kerry took care of us in a marvelous way. Not only the planning of the tour was fantastic, but also her work as an organizer. Even though my friend and I contracted Covid some days before our visit, Kerry took care of rescheduling everything and keeping our itinerary as flexible as possible.
It was a trip we will always remember and I can't imagine a better operator to contact when visiting Zambia.
Thank you very much for your hard work.
Ntanda Ventures is one of the most fantastic travel agencies!
We booked a tour to Zambia (Kafue National park, Victoria falls and South Luangwa national park) through them. Kerry and Christina helped us with everything from accommodation, special food orders, transfers between camps, flight tickets, PCR-test etc. !I have travelled to South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Indien. However, this is definitely the best travel agency I've ever booked from I honestly feel like Kerry and Christina are my friends that I've never met in real life. Thank you so much for your professional and loving help!
My go-to team in Africa
The Ntanda team has done a brilliant job for us and designed an itinerary to perfectly match our dreams. We like to mix up the rustic bush with a little luxury to make the most of the wilderness, natural beauty and simply lie by the pool. Highlights have been a road trip to Kapishya Hot Springs and Africa House and Lake Tanganyika.
Livingstone has to be my favourite destination as there is so much to choose from. We loved David Livingstone Safari Lodge and Siankaba. Siankaba offers absolute tranquility with cheeky monkeys and beautiful bird life.
We are looking forward to visiting the Luangwa Valley next.

The attention to detail was 2nd to none. Ntanda Adventures thought of everything to make my trip relaxed and memorable. Can’t wait to go back and do it all again!
You will never go wrong using Natandaventures! I am working on my 3rd trip to Mfuwe…
I am working on my 3rd trip to Mfuwe Lodge in Zambia. Kerry picked the lodge and it couldn’t be any better! I sometimes text her and and ask lots of questions. And she always replies. I think of Kerry as a friend I have not met (yet!).
Best tour operator in Zambia Best tour operator in Zambia! The travel planner from this travel company did an amazing job communicating with us, finding out our travel style, and creating a trip that was perfect for us. The Team very professional and friendly. Thanks Kerry and Camilla!!!

They ensure you get the best deals out there with constant communication and follow ups before, during and after your dream vacation.
Just wanted to say thank you for organising our superb trip to the Lower Zambezi! The Royal was absolutely fantastic! Beautifully decorated, comfortable rooms, great service , delicious food and incredible game viewing! We went into the National Park , saw 6 leopards in two days, 2 of which were fighting over territories. A huge herd of buffalo coming down to the watering hole, the Brutal brothers male lions , so many elephants and their babies - we even had one wondering around the camp! Our sightings were endless! The staff have created a wonderful, friendly environment. Everyone is helpful and hospitable, we even had a watercolour art lesson whilst there! Thank you everyone, The Royal is certainly a choice destination and we’ll be back soon!
We had a really nice time as we ended up being the only guests at the lodge for most of the nights. The staff was very attentive, the lunches were excellent (better than the dinners for some reason) and the guiding was great. We received a reusable water bottle and a drawstring bag with hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes and tissues upon arrival; the staff wore masks at all times and hand sanitizer was available on all entrances of the main pavilion. The location of the lodge and the facilities are beautiful, the bar is very well stocked with high-quality items (even cigars) and there even is "real" coffee from a french press available on game drives as opposed to instant coffee. We also made use of the high water to go on a boat safari. They even made a special dinner of nshima and char-grilled bream upon request.
A perfect stay on another perfect trip facilitated by yourselves - thanks SO much. So pleased to be able to suppor tour local businesses at this time.
Always helpful to the last details!Living in Zambia for many years, I had been to a few places in the Valley, where my soul feels at peace.Since finding Kerry and Ntanda Ventures everything is so easy! My niece and her husband booked a trip with them and really saw Zambia!
I can’t thank Kerry and the team enough for the wonderful holiday we have just experienced, all organised by Ntanda Ventures. From the moment we arrived in Zambia and completed our holiday in Victoria Falls we were well taken care of and nothing was too much trouble for Kerry to take care of on our behalf. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We will return and certainly use you for any future bookings.
Ntanda Ventures gave us excellent advice and organised a tour which ran seamlessly.
Amazing busy experience! The place is lovely! The team is wonderful! Absolute jem!
One of the most exhilarating experiences I have ever had. A walking safari in Zambia gave me an opportunity to experience nature in a whole new way, My senses were heightened with every smell and sound. Every crackle of leaves or sudden movement left me on edge- anticipating what was coming next but being ready for anything no matter how large or small it may be! Thank you Kerry for your amazing recommendations they exceeded all my expectations!
Planning on taking a weekend break or booking a Safari in Zambia, look no further than Ntanda Ventures. Great partnerships with lodges located in Zambias incredible national parks and tourist destinations. Seamless and frustration free. If you already know where it is you want to go, just provide the dates, alternatively if your new to Safari and haven't experienced what Zambia has to offer let them put together an itinerary packed with adventure. You won't be disappointed!
We’ve been to Livingstone, Luangwa Valley and Lake Tanganyika multiple times as a family and we like to mix it up with 5 star and more rustic accommodation so we can enjoy life’s luxuries as well as feeling closer to nature. Ntanda Ventures consistently deliver a perfect tailored African Safari for us. The team thoughtfully compose brilliant itineraries to meet our different needs. Those who want to laze by the pool all day are utterly delighted (me) and the action-orientated ones jump around like ecstatic little monkeys with walks, tours and activities. I love Livingstone as it is super easy to get to and the Elephant cafe and the boat ride to get there... is thrilling every time. Ntanda come highly recommended and we can’t wait to go back to Livingstone, Luangwa Valley, Lake Tanganyika and hopefully add Lower Zambezi to the list too!
I didn't expect so much beauty. Birds and lizards everywhere, fish eagles flying, and a great choice of accommodation types, from wild platforms over the water's edge to luxurious villas with world class views. Beautiful garden with hammocks but also wild footpaths with pure nature.
The food was excellent and the gardens and facilities were well-maintained and gorgeous. A really special place to relax and unwind - and if you are a bird-watcher, there is plenty to see
We had an incredible 3 nights at Blue Zebra. Our room and the views from it were great. All the staff are very helpful and friendly.
