Very disappointing tour. Nathan is indeed a nice guy, But shouldn't have operated with the vehicle that was use to do tour. I waited nearly 4 hours at one of the locations where we were suppose to view the elephant feeding which of course never happened. I plan on to no longer using this service.

Date: Sep 8/19

We had a fantastic 10 day adventure with Nathan covering over 1800km in Zambia. He was great company throughout, knowledgeable and informed about everywhere we visited. He was endlessly patient with me planning the trip, as we chopped and changed our ideas. Once we arrived, he was resourceful when our plans changed at late notice due to self inflicted or unavoidable delays, and never failed to find us comfortable places to sleep and eat. We couldn't have done the trip without you Nathan, thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome Nick. An adventure this was! It was a pleasure to help retrace your Zambian footprints. Thank you all.

Thank you Nathan for a wonderful and informative day! My three generational family had a 11 hour layover in Lusaka after a busy safari vacation. Despite all being very tired, we are so grateful for Nathan, who made our last day in Africa very memorable! We saw the sights of Lusaka, did some shopping and enjoyed learning about the city and Zambian culture, history and politics. Nathan engaged our whole family, and is a delightful, smart and interesting person. I recommend him completely!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words Stephanie. It was really a pleasure to provide this city tour to your family. I must say, the discussions with each family member were very insightful and interesting. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. (and I hope you all take lots more safaris!!!)

Nathan was excellent - articulate, knowledgeable and discerning in which sights he took me to see in Lusaka. He was very engaging, well presented and very interesting to get to know. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services, whether for a local tour of Lusaka or further afield on safari. First class guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many many thanks Ian. I enjoyed showing you around. I am happy you found the tour worthwhile, and happy that Lusaka is now more real to you now. Zikomo!!

Tour: Lusaka on the go, Lusaka, Zambia
Date: Dec 11/18

I visited Lusaka on a business trip, with little time for tourism. Nathan was a perfect guide to discover the city, its people, history, and the nature parks in the surroundings, in less than 24h. Contact was easy both before and during the trip. He made me very curious to discover more of Zambia..

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Francesco! We had fantastic discussions as we went around Lusaka. You are very welcome should you decide in future to explore more of Zambia.

We have spent a few days in Lusaka on the start of our 3 weeks holiday in Africa. Nathan was an excellent guide for the city tour, he was on time, very polite and very informative. He showed us the city center, elephant sanctuary, the Museum, we went to see a big rhino in a park, and visited a shopping mall. It was a really nice day, and Nathan spent even more time with us then he was supposed to. We can highly recommend Nathan to anyone visiting Lusaka. Thanks a lot!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback Martina. It was my pleasure to show you and Goran around Lusaka, and I learnt so much from both of you about your country as well. Keep up the travelling! All the best to you both. ( and your national team �� )

Tour: Lusaka Meet and Greet, Lusaka, Zambia
Date: May 7/17

Nathan has a chronic lack of ponctuality, but this gives probably a taste of Zambia as soon as you arrive. He perfectly knows his country, has a huge network and is very agile. I would trust him wherever I have to go in Zambia because I am sure he will find the best fitting places to see and people to meet. I recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci beaucoup Eric, it was very interesting taking you around for your meetings for 4 days, we exchanged so many ideas and experiences. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours. And I now know so much more about France!

Nathan was, in short, the perfect guide. He combined encyclopedic knowledge of Lusaka with enormous warmth and an imaginative itinerary. What a perfect day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Yasho! It was my pleasure to show you around Lusaka, you were an awesome guest and it was interesting for me too to see that you remembered so many places from those years ago when you were last in Lusaka, and to talk about how much they have changed or not. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Zambia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Olena! I am glad your free day in lusaka was well spent,even tasting local menu,and I hope your travels will bring you to this part of the world again some day.

Date: Oct 10/16

Great fun in planning and then doing the tour with Nathan which was foused on travelling around Zambia and getting to know People and places (rather than wildlife) and visiting and learning as much as possible about history and culture. Nathan is a fun and knowledgable guy. When planning be Aware that short distances does NOT necessarily mean short travel times and that even best laid plans are changed on the spot when a major road is suddenly no longer there (literally)...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dagmar. It was a pleasure to show you over the 16days some places that are off the beaten track. It's good to know that you found some cultural value in your visit. I also learnt a lot about your culture, history and travels. Thank you again.

Nathan provided an excellent tour of Lusaka! He is kind, knowledgable and passionate about his hometown. Nathan knows Lusaka inside out and was able to provide excellent perspective on its history and current state. We visited the National Museum, an elephant refuge, a farm with lions, a township, and a couple markets. I would absolutely recommend Nathan's tour to anybody visiting or moving to Lusaka.

I booked one day tour in Lusaka to get an understanding of how the city is and how people live here. I wanted to visit some non touristic places and walk around areas where locals hang out, and do it in a safe way. Nathan was great. He proposed a pretty comprehensive plan and managed to be fully flexible to adapt it to my specific interests. His English was excellent and provided me with lots of details and insights about the history and living of the city and the whole country. Absolutely recommendable!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Iker, it was awesome showing you around my city too. i learnt a lot about your country and culture as well. muchos gracias!
