My husband and I are considering using Flame of Africa to book our trip to Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls and Zambezi). Are they reputable?

    Hi KBG

    Yes, Flame of Africa is a reputable company, and has been around for many years. They also help out with travel packages for magazines such as "Getaway Magazine" and are well established in this regard. In fact, we use them as a referral partner when we are unable to assist our own clients in specific areas.
    They are very knowledgeable, and will certainly help you plan a great trip.

    Flame of Africa ( previously Flame Lily ) have been handling the bulk of our website reservations for the past 5 years and our emergency phone number hasn't rung for at least the past 3 years, so they are very reliable

    I'm traveling with a small group to Zimbabwe during the dry season. We're looking into Vic Falls, Hwange, and Mana Pools. Has anyone heard of John Stevens Safaris? Can anyone give me some insight regarding whether Mana Pools is safe and well-worth the expense opposed to focusing on Hwange and Vic. Falls? We're looking for permanent tents or lodges. What kind of price range should we expect from Vic. Falls to Mana Pools for 2 days in Vic. Falls and 3 nights in Mana Pools?

    I just got off the phone with them and they still, 12 days later, have not located my wire transfer for my trip. I'm leaving for S.A. today with this side trip to Vic Falls. I have now lost the most important part of my vacation because of the bank they used for my wire transfer. I will never use them again. I am angry beyond belief and disappointed like I never thought I'd be. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!
