A dream! I love how I never have to stress about anything in the booking process. Bryony from Heartveld Adventures was helpful from beginning to the end.. it's my second time booking through her and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Yes I recommend Heartveld Adventures . Our stay at Wild Heritage was amazing. We got to sunbathe and watch the breathtaking sunset. It was a pleasure to deal with Byrony who organised everything for us. We are so glad you had a great time and look forward to welcoming you back soon!

It was an absolute pleasure to deal through Bryony and she made the whole experience seamless and easy. All arrangements made were perfect and her input and advise were spot on! We experienced some 'once in a life time' experiences in Mana Pools and also enjoyed being able to participate in the May Sailing rally on Lake Kariba We don't know who had more fun? Us planning this "once in a life time" trip - or you for experiencing it! Thanks for giving us the honour of being a part of it, and we hope you come back next year!

Bryony and Heartveld Adventures team organized and amazing romantic itinerary for my girlfriend and I. They effortlessly took care of arranging everything from accommodation, activities and transport to activities. Everything they do is professionally done and the level & quality of everything they booked for us surpassed expectations. Our trip and vacation was stress free entirely because of the amazing work done by Bryony and team. We stayed at Vic Falls safari lodge in one of the best rooms they had over looking the animal watering hole. I would highly recommend letting them plan your entire itinerary for stress free trip. Definitely going with them again for my next trip!! Thanks Heartveld!
Nyasha 'Naj' Juru, Zimbabwe 31 January 2021
Very friendly and professional. These guys will go out of their way to make sure you have a memorable experience. Bryony pulled off a great feat by organizing a sunset cruise on the last day of our honeymoon. The lockdown had scared away most families on holiday. We had a boat all to ourselves and we had our honeymoon sunset cruise memory captured. We are so glad we were able to create a unique and memorable day for your special honeymoon! Come and visit again soon!
Jess McCreary, Zambia 24 January 2021
Bryony recently organised our Kariba houseboat trip on Return to Eden and couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble, even with 5 families (and young children) to please. She swiftly found answers to our Covid testing & border crossing questions, helped organise our ice for the trip and even arranged for a welcoming bottle of wine on arrival. She was in touch the day we boarded to make sure there were no issues and checked in with us once we had got home to see all was well. Always cheerful and at hand to help, we can highly recommend Bryony and Heartveld Adventures! Awwww .. thanks so very much for the kind words and I am so glad you had wonderful family trip! And thanks even more for sharing pics of your holiday!
Sarah-May Kilner, Zimbabwe 6 January 2021
Thank you Bryony Scrooby at Heartveld Adventures for helping us organize a lovely little holiday for me and my crazy family and friends. We managed to find a suitable house being such a big group and having left it to last minute with Covid, we honestly thought it wouldn't happen, but you pulled out all the stops and it all came together. The place we stayed at was called Fisherman's Rest, it was lovely and basic, and nice and central to everything. The staff at the house were so accommodating and friendly which made us feel right at home. Thank you again Bryony, for being so helpful and efficient in arranging everything for us. I highly recommend using Heartveld Adventures! Thanks so much for letting us be a part in planning your special holiday and we hope to see you back again soon!
Brian Thomas, South Africa 31 December 2020
Had a great trip on a Houseboat called Ponty out of Binga, arranged by Bryony of Heartveld. Arrangements were very efficiently handled, Bryony also managed to arrange some extra fuel for me in Binga which was a lifesaver. Thanks Heartveld. It was an absolute pleasure Brian! So glad you and your family had a good trip. Come visit again soon!
Viv Hudson, Zimbabwe 2 November 2020

Thank you Heartveld Adventures for organising a lovely getaway for us in Hwange & Vic Falls. Your attention to detail and patience with my hundreds of questions were appreciated.

Just a quick one to say thank you to Heartveld for an amazing trip to Sundowner Lodge in Deka. The lodge is fantastic with great staff that made the trip even better. The pics are of 2 fish that their guide put us on and we will definitely be going back soon. FANTASTIC fish! Thanks for letting us know how your trip went and sharing your pics!
Mike Oelofsen, New Zealand 1 August 2020
Guys! Heartveld Adventures rock! Last year when we where in Zims we decided at the last minute to do a house boat trip on Kariba, you guys pulled out all the stops to make it happen, then when we arrived a day early, you went that extra mile and got us on a boat. I can not say enough about how good the trip was, or how you came to the party! Thank you so much Mike for the feedback, we are so glad we were able to help and that you all had a great trip.
Amanda Haritatos, Zimbabwe 29 October 2019
Based on a very positive suggestion from a friend of ours, we booked a week at the Kariba Safari lodge through this amazing team. The service and response we received was beyond excellent and deserves a 5-star recognition. Bryony was extremely helpful, diligent and experienced and helped us plan an amazing family holiday which included several children. Several accommodations were made for our personal comforts and we were blown away by the fast and friendly service. There really are no words other than to recommend them for any of your travel plans. Thank you again for an amazing holiday and we are looking forward to the trip you are currently planning for us What a fantastic review! Thanks very much Amanda Haritatos! Bryony, Heartveld Adventures

A huge thank you to Bryony for going above and beyond. We had a lovely trip on Kariba at very short notice. many many thanks!
Iqubal Mahomed, Botswana 17 September 2019
We have just spent 4 nights on The Tehilla houseboat. From the time we started our communication for the booking it was very efficiently and professionally handled by Bryony. The crew on board were exceptional and extremely friendly. Without a doubt the boat is very comfortable and value for the monies spent. We will be back! Many thanks for your feedback Iqubal Mahomed. We are so glad you had a nice time on Tehilla!
Pieter Christelle Pasques, Zimbabwe 31 August 2019
Just want to say a big thank you to Bryony and Heartveld Adventures for the booking of Phillipa Houseboat. We really enjoyed our stay and the staff were excellent with outstanding meals and effort in everything they do. The houseboat was also very economical on fuel and being 100% solar made a big difference as we could run fans etc through the night. It is also very child friendly. Would highly recommend them and we will definitely be back again. Thank you again to Bryony and Bev. Thanks for sharing your experience with us and your family photos too!
Geoff Silwizya, Zambia 29 August 2019
A very personalised and flexible approach by the manager and always catering for specific requirements........a very friendly experience all in all
Kyrre Håkon Aune Forland, Norway 22 August 2019
Heartveld were very helpful to us in planning our trip with the Kariba ferry, and transport here and there in Zimbabwe. We had a wonderful time, and recommend both the ferry, and Heartveld Adventures! Thanks for the great feedback Kyrre! And sharing your lovely photos!
Miranda Perrott, South Africa 19 August 2019
Bryony went out of her way to make sure we had a wonderful holiday with no problems at all. She helped my son and his friends catch taxis from Zimbabwe across the border into Zambia to get to Lusaka. I can really recommend Heartveld Adventures Thanks for the feedback Miranda! We are so very glad you all had a lovely trip around Zimbabwe.
Natalie Goldsmith, South Africa 16 July 2019
Bryony and her husband were sooo helpful when we found ourselves stranded at the Kariba Ferry harbour with a burnt out clutch. They made calls for us, found us accommodation and arranged a taxi to take us and our stuff to the Lomagundi chalets. Thanks a million Bryony if I'm ever in Kariba again I will contact you guys first.
Felicity de Wet Garbers, South Africa 15 July 2019
A huge thank you to Bryony for efficiently handling our booking on Karibeer. Smooth sailing...... All the way. Three amazing days spent on Karibeer, relaxing, reading, game watching and generally re-charging. The staff were always friendly, happy to help and kept us fed and watered. The sunsets were an experience that will not be forgotten and this should be on everyone's bucket list. Highly recommended
Colleen Swart, Zimbabwe 3 May 2019
Highly recommend their service and willingness to go above and beyond for the best holiday for you and your family.
Fiona Hayden-Payne, Zambia 3 May 2019
Posting on behalf of a friend:- "What an awesome way to celebrate 140 years, 70th, 50th and 20th birthdays. Osprey was such a spacious boat that 26 members of family could all be together. Staff were absolutely amazing, wish we could have been on the boat for longer, 4 nights ain't enough
Yvette Mellet, Zimbabwe 29 April 2019
A big thank you to Bryony for all the help with our booking. Everything was attended to promptly and all went smoothly. The lodge was fantastic as well and we had a wonderful time with the nicest staff who were very friendly and always happy and willing to help.
Mark Taylor, South Africa 8 April 2019
Efficient, friendly service in an affordable package!
Shamiso Matsa, Zimbabwe 29 January 2019
My experience with Heartveld Adventures was one of the best I've had. I was assisted by Bryoni from the bookings right up to the end of the holiday. I was assisted in picking the best holiday for me and my family. Everything about the holiday was perfect, I couldn't have faulted a single thing. Lots of activities for the kids and adults as well as lovely meals. I would recommend Heartveld Adventures to anyone. Thank you for your amazing support. We definitely will be back
Madz Thornburn, South Africa 8 January 2019
Thank you to an amazing team for organising the holiday of a lifetime on lake Kariba. Sheer Magic lived up to its name and we could not have asked for more ... simple perfection .... Excellent advice on how to navigate Zims complex logistics and help with everything from booking tickets for the Falls Carnival to special ice Delieveries. Maita Basa Briony
