Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I was reluctant to do the tour because I thought I could do it alone without the rhino portion. However, I would highly recommend this tour. Blessing and MoreBlessing are knowledge about the park's history, animals, geological landscape, etc. We were able to see the rhino after searching for them for a while, but it was worth it. After the tour, we had a really nice lunch with good coffee at the beautiful lodge. I would highly recommend this tour. They took care of everything and provided me with a unique experience that I would not have experienced otherwise.

    Such a great experience! Do not hesitate into contacting this company. They know everything and everyone in the region, and will design you a perfect tour, personalized to what you are interested in. As a solo traveler, it's sometimes hard in Zimbabwe to do tours, but I got exactly what I wanted. If I had more time in Bulawayo I would've done more tours with them.

    What an amazing experience. Lesley was incredibly helpful, patient and accommodating. He always had a smile on his face and a great attitude. By the end of the trip he was part of the family!

    We had Lesley as our driver to get us from Victoria falls to Buluyawo and then around Buluyawo for the week we were there. There was a large group of us and a lot to coordinate. He was always calm, cool, collected, punctual, professional and knowledgeable. We always felt safe and his vehicle was in great condition. We learned a lot during our ride from Vic Falls to BUL and he stopped along the way for us to experience some of the local highlights. It’s was a very authentic experience that I am extremely thankful for. We are returning may of 2024 and will be using this company for our transportation needs.

    We had an incredible trip with our guide, Tawanda, who brilliantly led us through the National Park and all the various sights inc. the Rock Caves, World’s View and the Rhino Walk. Tawanda was engaging and extremely knowledgable: he grew up in the area and his experience really made this tour stand out: his knowledge of the various animals, insects, flora, caves and trees was astonishing and he is also a great story teller. Transport was all excellent, we were picked up from our hotel and had a great few hours out. Strongly recommended trip!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to the Great Zimbabwe with This and That Safaris. Along the way, Thembi (my guide) pointed out the first road built in Zimbabwe, the gold mining towns, the Chinese factories, etc. Although the drive was a long one, this added a lot of interest to the journey.

    At the Great Zimbabwe site, Thembi handed me over to one of the official guides who was very knowledgeable about the archaeology and history as well as the environment. I just wish that we had more time at the museum, however.

    I should also add that Thembi went the extra mile to sort out the payment for the trip, as it seems that his bank had problems with dealing with the international transaction.

    Aside from the payment issue, there are a couple of other areas for improvement, however:
    • Thembi should have sorted out the drinks and lunch BEFORE the trip commenced rather than after he picked me up; this added to the length of the journey.
    • As stated above I wish that we could have spent more time in the museum; this could have happened had we not spent time sorting out the drinks and lunch during the trip.

    On the whole, however, the trip was great.

    A superbly organized and reasonably priced tour with excellent guide Bingani Dube. First, efficient airport pickup, next day tour of local village, Khami ruins. Efficient bus booking to Victoria Falls. And to top it all off, a surprise...sharing a beer in a local bar with local people.Highly recommended!

    Leslie was our tour guide. He picked us up from where we were staying in Bulawayo and took us to the Khami Ruins site. Leslie is a great guy and is very knowledgeable about everything in particular Khami ruins history. We definitely recommend Leslie as your tour guide !! Thank you for a great day Leslie! Sandra, Dirk and Anna.

    I had only a short time to stay in Zimbabwe, and one of the highest things on my to-do list was to visit the Great Zimbabwe. This tour turned out to be the perfect choice. Before arriving in Zimbabwe I was in contact with my guide, Leslie. He was very friendly and helpful as I prepared to arrive, even going so far as to give me an update on the forecast of cold weather for the days that I'd be there so that I would know to bring a jacket with me.
    My guide met me at the airport on arrival the day before the tour was scheduled to begin. The plan was to drop me off at a hotel that I had booked and to meet me first thing in the morning to start the tour. There was an issue with my reservation at the hotel (completely unrelated to the tour company), and my guide was very good about helping me find another place to stay for the night. I appreciated the help very much.
    The next day we drove from Harare to the Great Zimbabwe. It was a pleasant drive through the countryside. We arrived at Masvingo in the evening and checked into the accommodation arranged by the tour company. The place was very nice, near the stone monument and with a lovely view of Lake Kyle. The next morning was the tour of the Great Zimbabwe. The guide was interesting and informative, and I enjoyed learning so much about the history of the stone structures and the people who built them. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is planning a visit to Zimbabwe., and Bonisa Excursions would definitely be the company to go with.

    It's a fascinating place, full of history, rhinos and bonkers rocks. It would be even better if the roads could be repaired so that more of the caves could be explored - a 4x4 would also help. My guide, Thembo, did his best to make sure I saw everything, and that included hauling me up some of the more difficult rocks! He was also very knowledgeable and interesting. A great day.

    Fantastic tour with Blessing who was knowledgable, engaging and made the tour experience really enjoyable. The Railway Museum was a particular highlight and the tour is well organised with transport provided along with hotel pick up. Blessing also made time for us to see Centenary Park which was a special request and greatly appreciated - we enjoyed hearing the stories of his experiences living in Bulawayo! Highly recommended tour.

    The Natural History Museum should be deleted from the tour. At the US $10 admission price, it simply isn't worth it. They should have paid me to go there! The balance of the tour is okay. The guide is very good, very knowledgeable. The Railway Museum is a highlight of the tour. Also, the Nesbitt Castle is excellent, and it's a nice thing to enjoy at the end of the tour. In conclusion, the guide is very good, and the tour is okay, but the Natural History Museum is a rip off, and I wouldn't recommend going there at all.
