We enjoyed our travels around Zimbabwe, and what good fortune it was for us to have Crinias as our driver. Crinias was at all times professional, courteous and friendly, and of course an excellent driver. He remained quite unruffled at the numerous road blocks we encountered, and although we never felt threatened at any time, it was comforting not to have to deal with the police ourselves.
Having come to Zimbabwe with low expectations in terms of food, accommodation and infrastructure, I was pleasantly surprised on all fronts. Almost every Zimbabwean we had contact with amicable and eager to please, and after my absence of nearly 20 years I found not much had changed in Harare at least. I appreciate being a tourist is not the same as being permanently resident, but our 4 days in Harare was a very pleasant surprise for me. Similarly, our time in the tourist spots was equally enjoyable.
I hope to persuade friends and family in Europe to visit Zimbabwe and of course I will steer them in the direction of Nyati Travel (or maybe plan their trips in conjunction with you ?). I do a lot of independent travelling, and am quite experienced at putting trips together with the assistance of local agents. I would love to get involved in promoting Zimbabwe to those who want to visit but have no idea where to begin.

Our holiday in Zimbabwe was a great experience. The stories that go round about Zimbabwe being an unsafe destination, we have never felt that during our round-trip of the country. We stayed at a nice and quiet lodge in the capital for the first three days. At our request Nyati organised some visits to development projects and an orphanage in Harare and Mutare. The personal touch of the organisers of our trip and their attention to detail stayed with us throughout the trip in this magnificent country.

My family and I used Nyati Travel to hire a car and driver. We drove from Victoria Falls to Harare over a number of days, stopping at various points of interest along the way. Our driver, Alec, was a very professional, conscientious and safe driver. Nyati booked all our accomodations along the way which were great. Nyati was extremely responsive over email and was flexible in helping us arrange our perfect, specialized vacation. I highly recommend Nyati!

We are back in Kinshasa today. We had a wonderful experience in Zimbabwe. We were even debating if we should prolong our stay a bit longer. Alec is an excellent drive and guide. He truly understood our need as a family with young kids.We crossed Zim safely and with a lot of insight provided by him.

Reisverslag Zimbabwe.

In de periode van 2 tot en met 26 oktober 2012 bezochten wij Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe stond vanwege de berichten en de beeldvorming niet op onze vakantie-wensenlijst. De aanleiding dat wij toch gingen, was een bezoek aan onze vriendin in Harare.

Nu kregen wij de kans om kennis te maken met een prachtig land, veel mooie natuur en zeer vriendelijke mensen.

Op advies van onze vriendin zijn wij in contact gekomen met Nyati Travel.

Bij aankomst in Harare ontvingen wij alle  benodigde documenten zoals : kort en bondige routebeschrijving inclusief bijbehorende  routekaarten, reserveringen voor de Nationale parken en vouchers voor de accommodaties. Voor het passeren van de grens met Zambia had Nyati precies uitgezocht welke papieren nodige waren o.a. een ‘double entry’ visum, dat je bij aankomst in  Zimbabwe moet kopen.

Terugkijkend: Zimbabwe is zeer de moeite van het bezoeken waard. De trip die wij gemaakt hebben geeft, denken wij, een goed beeld van het land, de natuur en de mensen. Mensen die van de natuur houden, niet al te veel waarde hechten aan een super de luxe verblijf zullen, denken wij, enorm genieten.

Being back in Harare with a suitcase full of wonderful impressions and a better geographical knowledge of the country, I would like to give this positive feed-back and my thanks. Your driver/guide was excellent and we could enjoy every hour, though it was a long drive. Alec was not only a good driver, he was also responsible and precautious.
