What people are saying about North-West District

We went on an absolutely amazing white water rafting tour on the Zambezi River! The Maano Adventures team is a local tour agency working with wonderful people from Livingston and the villages around the Zambezi. They were all incredibly helpful and fun! They went above and beyond to make this an unforgettable experience for everyone. We even got to go see the Victoria Falls after the tour, when they were already supposed to close for the day. Thank you again to the whole team of guides, drivers, and all the helpers. 100% recommend Maano Adventures!! Kristina and Daniel P.s. we did the tour from Kasane. At the border you can buy a one-day visa for 20$ (Make sure to bring dollars, they do not accept credit card or pula).

We had such a wonderful experience with Cuckoo tours on a day trip to Chobe from Livingstone. The border/transport process was all managed by Simon's team and we spent the day in Chobe with Gaba who was an incredible guide through the park. His expertise allowed us to see so many different animals as well as Lions! This trip included a game drive as well as a boat tour on the river. Highly recommend their service!

Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.

We had a very nice trip, everything went according to plan, thank you! A local guide met us at the Zimbabwean border and drove us to the Vic Falls Recommendation: go to the border as early as possible, because crossing the border takes a lot of time

Our guide was very friendly, professional and helpful. I would recommend them any time.
