The fly-in special to Changa over Easter was a fabulous idea and we thoroughly enjoyed our break . . . to call the chalets tents is an understatement as they are so spacious and luxurious. And each chalet we have stayed in has an equally incredible view. The attention from the managers was great, and all aspects good, most especially we love the way the dining spots are moved around into different locations each evening. One of the highlights was flying over the gorge on the way home. Thank you to Travel Portfolio for arranging this special week end for us, and thank you to the Changa team.
Tom, South Africa 30 November 2023
Very much enjoyed our fishing trip to Spurwing recently, and the surprise chocolate cake – thanks to Travel Portfolio for organising it all.
Steve, USA 27 October 2023
Clients loved their circuit around Zimbabwe. . . Mana Pools, Kariba, Victoria Falls and more . . . and they thoroughly enjoyed chartering into the bush camps . . Thank you Travel Portfolio for hand-picking camps with excellent guides and close-to-nature experiences for my clients and being our ground handlers to trouble-shoot any unforeseen issues that arose ensuring the safari was seamless for clients.
Anna and family, Zimbabwe 28 August 2023
We enjoyed Bumi Hills very much – thank you Ruvimbo for the recommendation and organisation.
Harry, Zimbabwe 30 June 2023
An absolutely great way to spend a special birthday at Stretch Ferreira's camp– thank you to Hayley for organisation all the extra touches from birthday surprises to a boat transfer into Mana Pools.
Tony & family, South Africa 22 May 2023
Everything on the Kariba houseboat was superb and exceeded our expectations. Accommodation first class, Fantastic meals, friendly and highly efficient staff and some great game viewing. The only disappointment was the lack of fish. Caught a few squeakers but no bream or tiger. My family thoroughly enjoyed it and we will all have very happy memories Best regards Tony

We had wedding guests from the States, Scotland, Germany, SA, and Zambia. All places that Travel Portfolio had organised for everyone to stay in were just the best. Shongwe stood out for us as that was where we stayed and the bulk of our guests. The staff were amazing and we all became one family for the time we were up there. There were no issues whatsoever and the stay was simply amazing. The best place to eat in the whole of the Falls in my opinion is at Shongwe and many others agreed. We ate out at all the fancy places but nothing beats the Shongwe food and their hospitality. Shongwe didn't charge myself or Vanessa for the weeks accommodation whilst we were there plus they have given us another two complimentary nights there as a wedding gift to use whenever we please. They also gave us complimentary champagne on our special day. We used Sheppy bus tours to get all 150 of our guests around for the 5 days that we were up there. It was no easy feat I tell you, it was like herding cats around and Sheppy was just so accommodating and did an outstanding job and we highly recommend him and his services. There were no bad reports from Pioneers either. The guests had a good stay there as well. Lokuthula is also a beaut of spot and everyone enjoyed there as well. I'm sure they still have the beat of the drums from the Boma drum show with them today. So all in all a well organised trip and enjoyed by all. Many thanks again for all your efforts and helping us have a smooth trip with all your bookings etc.
Jenny Ridgewell, Zimbabwe & USA 15 October 2022
A few lines to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Old Drift! The lodge itself, a calm safari space and simple in design, offered a most comfortable experience with air conditioned rooms and plenty of space, good linen and lots of little extras which were much appreciated. The food was good too and the location of the tented space, right next to the river provided excellent views, beautiful sunrises over the mighty Zambezi and on the first day, 13 Eles appeared in front of our room – matriarch, juvenile and baby amongst them. It was such a privilege to sit and watch them, even though they tried to empty our pool! The staff were excellent, looked after our every need, and were especially kind to our teenage grandchildren remembering them by name from the beginning - memories of their first special “mocktails” amongst other more meaningful safari experiences including the explanation of termite mounds had them rivetted. River cruises and game drives all provided good sightings. We have stayed at some pretty upmarket safari locations but can rank this amongst them and we had a great family time. This first safari experience for our grandchildren will probably stay with them forever. I hope we can do it again with other visiting family next year! Best wishes to all. We are delighted to get this excellent feedback, Jenny. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Soares, USA 14 September 2022
I just wanted to send you a note thanking you for putting our trip together. We had a great time. All three camps were different. Netty and I enjoyed Mana Pools the best, we had a great time with Steve and Debbie. We also enjoyed Matusadonha and the boat trips looking for game. Sean was an excellent guide in Hwange. He, Bradley and Alfred treated us great.
Shallow family, UK 17 August 2022
Thank you very much for organising our holiday to Vic Falls. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed visiting the falls and the Boma dinner. The dinner was fantastic and we will recommend it to all our family and friends for the future. Additionally, the game drive that you organised was out of this world. We ended up being out with our guide for nearly 10 hours - visiting some great spots in the national park and seeing a whole range of animals. The accommodation at Lokuthla was great and exactly what we wanted for our stay. Thank you again for all your help and support in organising our trip!
Shirley Suter, Eiry and Colin, Zimbabwe 11 April 2022
We had a marvellous trip to Kariba, Matusadona and Hwange. Our stay at Changa was so luxurious, especially the food! The Hide was fabulous - we do enjoyed the game drives. Thank you, Travel Portfolio!
Lara and David England, Christina and Dan , Zimbabwe 31 March 2022
Thank you so much Ruvimbo for organising our trip to Victoria Falls – we had a lovely time at both Victoria Falls Safari Suites and Old Drift, and thank you Hayley for all your advice, contacts and assistance with the wedding planning. We could not fault any part of our trip and can't thank you both enough.
Dewar family, Zimbabwe 30 October 2021
We had an excellent time at LokuthuIa Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed all the special elements Travel Portfolio included. Thank you for the great organisation of everything.
Sonia van der Merwe, Zimbabwe 12 October 2021
Just had the most amazing weekend at Kavinga, a special place and incredible game viewing. Our highlight was the big herd of buffalo drinking at the waterhole while we were in the Hide as well as the fright we got to find two male lions waiting for us outside! Hayley Idensohn - thank you so much for organising it for us!
Dominic Rowe & friends, Zimbabwe 30 September 2021
Just wanted to thank you for organising our trip to Tamarind, Chirundu. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The camp and staff were great. Thanks again Dominic.
Cynthia Jones, USA 21 September 2021
Steve and I just wanted to thank you for all the personal attention and planning that went into our African Adventure. It was a trip of a life time and it was delightful to meet you. Maybe another trip may be in the near future.
Angela Beresford-Miller and Taylor family, Zimbabwe 23 August 2021
Another magical trip to Spurwing - the perfect family destination! Fantastic fishing and great wildlife - even got to see lion!! Thank you Travel Portfolio for another superbly organized holiday.
Carol Wogrin, USA, (but lives in Harare) 17 August 2021
A huge thank you to Hayley and the Travel Portfolio team. We had an amazing, long-awaited vacation. For a trip that was first planned for June of 2020, their patient juggling of dates and places in the midst of the ever-changing restrictions and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic along with their responsiveness to our wishes and budget requirements, made it all come together perfectly- a true feat in these challenging times. The final trip, spent at Elephant Camp and Old Drift in Victoria Falls could not have been nicer. Both camps provide absolute luxury while maintaining the feel of the bush. Across the board, staff were friendly, warm and extremely responsive and accommodating. Elephant Camp gave us the incredible experience of interacting with elephants, while Old Drift had the plus of being right on the bank of the Zambezi river- providing gorgeous views as well as a river game drive complete with hippos, waterbuck, crocodiles, and an array of unusual and beautiful birds. If you're planning a vacation in this part of the world, I can't recommend Travel Portfolio highly enough. Delighted that your extension trip all came together after the main group decided to cancel and your extension dates had to defer / change repeatedly due to covid challenges impacting travel. Thank you for your kind words and so pleased that you so enjoyed your trip.Look forward to working with you and your colleagues in the future. Best wishes.Hayley
Karen & Glen Wiseman, Zimbabwe 3 May 2021
Hayley thank you so much for sorting out our weekend at Ingwe Pan in Mana Pools (self fly). We loved the break. Camp was stunning and so well run.
Kudzai Tongoona , Zimbabwe 4 March 2021
I had to book short notice for half term break for myself and my two young kids to Victoria falls. Hayley and Tracy managed to book return flights for us and also a lovely hotel stay at the exclusive Old Drift Lodge inside Zambezi national park and right on the banks of the Zambezi River. They also booked our hotel transfers to and from the airport.... all of this in a matter of hours! Our stay in Victoria falls at Old Drift was a wonderful experience packed with many activities and awesome memories. I highly recommend Travel Portfolio. Five stars for helping us create such great memories. Thank you for the lovely review and delighted you and your twins had such a lovely time in Victoria Falls on your trip back to Zimbabwe. Thank you for all the action-packed photos! We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Team Travel Portfolio
Rowe family, Zimbabwe 4 March 2021
Thank you very much for organising the housboat for us. You really picked a winner with Baobab. We had a fantastic trip and caught loads of fish!
Paul Smith, Zimbabwe 3 November 2020
After booking at the last minute, thank you Travel Portfolio for arranging and helping us choose a magical honeymoon destination. We experienced a hiccup with our halaal meat. Hayley from Travel Portfolio sorted it out smoothly and ensured the trip of our dreams. We arrived at Caribbea Bay Marineland an hour late for our boat transfer to Changa Safari Camp. (Hayley from Travel Portfolio kindly arranged with Avoca Marine to wait for us/ to delay the departure time for us after puncturing a tyre en route). After a 45min boat transfer we arrived at Changa and were collected by the camp tour guide Greg and taken by jeep to the camp entrance. We were greeted by the Camp's Manager Cher and given a talk about the camp/our stay along with a temperature check. The camp was a beautifully designed rustic getaway which has been built in a way that is considerate of the ecology and minimises the environmental impact on the flora & fauna of the camp. With soft, biodegradable fixtures and furnishings....wooden boardwalks leading to all tents, it is literally a hotel in the bush. The attention to detail by the camp and its catering staff was second to none. Chef Tanaka's 3 course lunch and dinner menus were exceptional and made meal times dining by candlelight in the wild a unique experience. The camp also offers a number of tours at additional cost including Fishing tours on the Sanyati River, Safaris and The River Gorge sunset boat cruise. We opted for the River Gorge cruise which was very relaxing and gave us views of Hippo's, Crocodiles, Fish Eagles and a beautiful Kariba Sunset. My wife and I also utilised the camp's spa services and had 2 very relaxing massages from Peta. I can't recommend Changa Safari Camp highly enough for its quality of service, friendly & professional staff and the wow factor it delivers across all areas in providing a relaxing, romantic, back to nature getaway.
Harry Tselentis, Zimbabwe 30 October 2020
Mana was superb. Ingwe Camp. Excellent. Highly recommended.
Janine Duncan, Zimbabwe 22 October 2020
50th birthday treat with Stretch Ferreira Safaris in Mana Pools. We had the most amazing time. Very special time with family. I just can't find the right words to explain our trip. It definitely will be a life-long memory which we will treasure. The family were very sad to leave Stretch's camp. Thank you so much for organising the trip for us. We will tell you more about our awesome adventure when we see you next. Besides the time at the camp on the Zambezi River, our day trip to Chitake was incredible – as well as witnessing approximately 300 buffalo coming to drink. Thank you so much for including this special birthday extra for us!
Ron Roper, Zimbabwe 13 October 2020
Excellent trip thanks Hayley. One of the best wild life experiences I have had in a long time. Kavinga Safari Camp is highly recommended. Thank you to Travel Portfolio for organising our trip. I saw Nancy and she confirmed the sightings of cats was incredible. Cats and a whole lot more!!! Delighted to hear and a pleasure. Look forward to working with you again in the future! Team Travel Portfolio
Angela Beresford-Miller, Zimbabwe 26 August 2020
We had the most amazing time at Spurwing. They are amazing and so accommodating to families with young children ... staff are so friendly and helpful. It does help having your own boat ... didn't realize how easy it was and how jacked they are for individuals having their own boat. I am so very grateful to Travel Portfolio for working with us and ensuring our holiday was exactly what we wanted. You definitely go the extra mile and give thorough advice, thank you!! Last minute changes were accommodated and no matter the time you were always there to assist.
Bradley family, UK 30 September 2019
Despite a disruption due to BA industrial action, our trip to Victoria Falls was fabulous and thank you for rearranging activities to optimise our limited time. We loved our trip to Victoria Falls.
Kalweo family, United Nations 30 September 2019
Thank you for our trip to Kariba. We were exhausted and it was a much needed break, and great land and lake wildlife activities. And your suggested accommodation and programme was perfect for small children, and the food and hosting was excellent. Thank you.
Lui party, China 30 September 2019
Thank for Travel Portfolio for a great grip to Hwange and Victoria Falls. Diverse landscape and a myriad of activities – so much to see and do. Thank you for the last minute arrangements and for optimising our time and experiences into a great safari
Grzsiak family, Poland 30 September 2019
Feedback from the Polish agent : The family loved every minute of their safari in Zimbabwe and Botswana – and it was perfect not only for the adults but the 9 year old daughter. Lots of fun elements in the programme went down well with her. Thank you
Schwabb party, USA 30 September 2019
Feedback from the agent in USA : Thank you for the excellent arrangements of all the big and small details. My clients loved the trip. Some of them have pledged to come on the 3rd trip with us!! ...
Mandy Lamont-Stiell, Zimbabwe 13 July 2018
Thank you Bridget, Haley, Ruvimbo and all staff at Travel Portfolio for doing an amazing job in helping me plan a rather hectic few days with overseas family. I could not have done a better job. Thanks again
Paul Gorgolis, Australia 12 July 2018
I would like to express our thanks and gratitude in your company's organising of our holiday within Zimbabwe. The booking process experience was great as you gave us a lot of information allowing us to make the necessary decisions on what we wanted to do. We were also impressed with the proposed itinerary that you provided us with links to the relevant areas, which enabled us to capture the essence of our trip, before doing it, and, confirmed that what we were planning, indeed, was what we wanted. As you know we had many different destinations and activities planned at each destination. Everything went smoothly and, as a result, we had a great time. Thank you again - we look forward to planning our next trip through you.
Mark Klappenrich, USA 1 July 2018
Took a family of 4 from the US on a 12 day safari. Heyley handled all the arrangements without a hitch!!!!!This included 2 different camps and 3 bush pilots. She communicates swiftly and clearly. I highly recommend her. Zimbabwe is a safe and wonderful place regardless of the transition it is experiencing. Go visit, its future is bright!!!!
