Heartveld Adventures really goes the extra mile when it comes to customer service. They really think of everything that would be needed for a great holiday.

Bryony organised a wonderful adventure for us. We started at the Victoria Falls, went onto Hwange and then moved across to the magical Matopos. Accommodation was stunning, food delicious, guides and staff exceptional. Thank you many happy memories were made in your beautiful country.

Exceptional experience with Bryony at Heartveld Adventure! Her assistance in booking the Africa Queen houseboat made our trip to Lake Kariba unforgettable. From flawless arrangements to a perfect April weather, stunning wildlife, and excellent fishing, every moment was extraordinary. The African Queen crew provided top-notch service, ensuring we were well taken care of. Delicious food and well-equipped facilities on the boat added to the overall fantastic experience. Our journey was truly incredible, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

New Year's Celebration - Dec 2023. The service was amazing. I was able to pay very easily and they were patient with me when I couldn't get to them by the delivery date. Amazing boat and crew and will definitely go through Heartveld when I do my next trip!

Just amazing! Honestly the best holiday ever in Zim. We went as a family of 6, it was well organised, it was fun and we miss it already. Thank you Heartveld for planning our trip.
Geoff Silwizya, Zambia 13 September 2023
Another awesome 3 night houseboat cruise on the Baobab on lake Kariba culminating at Elephant Point. Great food and service by the cabin crew and wonderful game viewing throughout. Thanks again Bryony of Heartveld Adventurs for organising.
Lindy Mostert, Zimbabwe 1 September 2023
I recommend Heartveld Adventures. We had a fantastic time on the Nyati houseboat, which had everything we needed and more. Solar, freezers, swimming, sunsets,animals, fishing and more. Thanks to captain and crew for their care and easygoing personalities. Back to real-life now!
Colin Mutambira, Zimbabwe 19 August 2023
Bryony organised accomodation for us in Kariba at short notice. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and it was a seamless hassle free experience. We look forward to more trips arranged by Heartveld Adventures.
Lauren Robertson, Zimbabwe 31 July 2023
We stayed on Karibeer this week in Kariba and it was absolutely brilliant! Outstanding service from Briony - would highly recommend! What lovely pics! Thanks so much for sharing and for the review! We look forward to your next trip!
Magda Gillwald , Zambia 31 May 2023
Exception and outstanding service! Right from the start of arranging our get away Heartveld Adventures went all out. Upon arrival we didn't have enough ice and the captain of the boat immediately organized some blocks which was great. The two staff members on the boat was friendly, helpful, kind and proper. You actually didn't know they were even on the boat. Fishing was great as well as all the food prepared for us. The only bad issue was that the kitchen cupboards and utensils was very unorganized but the staff knew where everything was so you actually don't have to worry about anything. Not even to get up and get a bottle of water, they literally do everything for you!! We're all going again in 2024!! Thank you to the staff on the boat and in the office for a great service and experience, loved every moment of it!!
Peter Eastwood, New Zealand 31 May 2023
Incredible Zimbabwe. Bryony organised us an amazing journey through Zimbabwe showcasing the best and the most interesting places. We were impressed by the diversity and the warm friendly people.
Liz Walshe, Ireland 29 May 2023
When planning our trip to Zimbabwe we came across Bryony by chance using google. Boy were we lucky. We wanted a houseboat on Kariba and gave the task to Bryony. We'd already got flights from Harare to Kariba booked which she kindly offered to arrange as well. Anyway, from the moment we arrived in Kariba Airport we were in looked after. Transport was arrange to collect our party of 5 and bring us to the Big 5 Lodge for one night. The advice we got was to get on the houseboat early so we had a look around Kariba ready for an early start the next day. We got a lift from the lodge manager to the dam and he gave us a tour of it which was informative and interesting. The Big 5 Lodge was a great suggestion and we had dinner there as well. Up early the next day we were collected and brought to our boat, the Somabhula. We were introduced to our captain Joe, cook Dominic and crew member Witness. These lads were excellent, professional and made our trip stress free. They cooked fabulous food and taught us how to fish. They knew all the good places to go game spotting. We had morning expeditions and evening sundowners and if you've never been on a houseboat in Kariba put it top of your to-do/wishlist. When we returned to Kariba Bryony had transportation ready to take us to the airport for our onward trip to Victoria Falls. All this was made possible by Bryony who arranged absolutely everything. This was done by email and Whatsapp from Ireland. Having confidence in a travel agent is imperative and if you need anything arranged in Zimbabwe you won't find better than Bryony at Heartveld Adventures. Liz Walshe it was an absolute pleasure to be able to help you with your trip to our beautiful Zimbabwe and we are so pleased you had a wonderful and memorable time - we can't wait to help with your next one!
Kirsty Hudson, New Zealand 26 May 2023
Our hearts are full! Bryony is such a pleasure to work with and friendly, helpful and so accommodating. We cannot recommend her enough. She booked us a stay at Kavinga Safari Lodge as well as booked us Air Charters to and from the camp. There were no problems with the booking at all and we were so pleased we used Heartveld Adventures.
Mandy Kille, Zimbabwe 17 May 2023
Great trip on Karibeer houseboat in April 2023. Newly renovated and so well equipped! Guilt free (inverter) air con all night! Bryony was efficient and helpful with all my queries and requests. Highly recommend Heartveld!
Carly Crawford, UK 17 April 2023
We have just come back from a fantastic family holiday to Victoria Falls & Hwange. We worked with Bryony Scrooby, who has the patience of a saint, helping to coordinate the different requirements of 3 different families. We stayed at the beautiful Batonka Guest Lodge, Victoria Falls and Robins Camp Hwange, and both were exceptional. Thank you, Bryony, for helping us make memories together again after 5 long years. Glad you had a wonderful trip - we look forward to hopefully planning another one for you soon!
Michelle Burger, Zimbabwe 20 January 2023
We had the most incredible time. Well organized and taylor made for all of us. Special dietary requirements were so well catered for. Prices were fantastic. We went to Vic Falls, Hwange, Inganyana, Matobo Hills, and Romelda in Masvingo. All done - and looking forward to my next adventure. Thanks so very much.

Excellent options, well arranged and done with a smile! We booked our houseboat (African Queen), transport and accommodation through Bryony. The arrangements were spot-on! Everything we asked for was catered for and the staff responsible for hosting us were excellent!
Charlene Taylor, Zimbabwe 19 September 2022
I booked a lovely Houseboat holiday through Heartveld. It was a stress free experience, Byrony was amazing and sorted out the accommodation the night before at Lomagundi Lodge (food was great). I gave Heartveld our budget and expectations and they delivered. I highly recommend using them to book a holiday for you.
Natalie W, UK 24 August 2022
Bryony provided many great options for my trip to Zimbabwe for a houseboat and Victoria Falls. The houseboat was well priced and very comfortable and I have to say had the most wonderful staff who bend over backwards to ensure we had the best time ever! The lodge in Victoria Falls was perfect. Out of the main town but close enough to get there for activities and obviously seeing the Falls. Again well thought choices from Bryony to ensure my holiday was incredible
Bronwyn Shaw , South Africa 17 August 2022
We recently had the most amazing holiday in Zimbabwe. I highly recommend Bryony from Heartveld Adventures, as she booked our whole holiday and she went above and beyond to make it a really special time! She is very helpful and gave us some great advice for travelling through Zimbabwe. We are so glad all went well with your tour around our beautiful Zimababwe - you sure got to see a lot of it! Look forward to your next trip!
Swerve Upton, Argentina 7 July 2022
From the minute we started our plan to go on a houseboat for a family and friends reunion (post Covid ) we were put onto Bryony to arrange. She gave us unbridled 5 star service from booking the boat Vunduful and all transfers to and from Harare to Kariba return. Everything was great and our guests came from 3 different continents to get aboard the Vunduful who had a great crew too. We had some amazing close up viewings and a fair few bream were caught daily. Thank you all from the Upton family and friends. We are very grateful for this wonderful review from Swerve! We look forward to your next trip!
Kylie Smith, Zimbabwe 15 June 2022

Sarah-May Kilner, Zimbabwe 18 January 2022
Heartveld Adventures, you did it again! We had the most wonderful time in Kariba with family and friends over New Years. Bryony Scrooby, helped find us great accommodation and we all had four days in heaven and certainly weren't ready to come back home! The houses were open, spacious and neat. We had the most terrific sunrises and sunsets and the staff were very friendly and looked after us well. We love hosting repeat clients and you are an absolute delight to plan trips for Sarah-May! We can't wait to help plan your next adventure!
Isobel Tsuro, Zimbabwe 3 January 2022
My experience booked through Bryony was memorable. It was a last-minute girls outing. Most of the houses were fully booked but Bryony made the trip possible. She had to run around and find accommodation for us. The house was peaceful with a very welcoming chef. The stay was memorable. Thank you so much Heartveld Adventures.
Amie P, Zimbabwe 3 January 2022
Trip of a lifetime! All thanks to Bryony at Heartveld Adventures who accommodated and put up with all our changes right till the very last moment!! Kavinga was a truly amazing experience and will definitely recommend anyone interested in a casual safari-like environment. The staff on hand made us part of their family from the get go which made the trip all the more special and memorable. And the game sightings!! AMAZING!! Definitely an adventure worth taking especially when everything is organised and taken care of.(Thank you Bryony!!)

Bryony went out of her way to ensure that our stay at Kariba Safari Lodge was top notch, she checked up on us before, during and after the trip, and ensured that all our needs were met. She was ready to assist at any given moment. The staff at KSL were pleasant and we had a fantastic break away from the busy Harare life. We will definitely use Heartveld adventures again for our next getaway they have showed efficiency, professionalism and great customer care. Well done Bryony keep up the good work! It was an absolute pleasure assisting you and your delightful family with your trip to Kariba - and wonderful to meet you. We look forward to helping you plan more holidays around our beautiful country - and beyond!
