      Can't wait to do it again!
      One of my all time favorite experiences. The team was extraordinary, so careful, organized and caring. It was just so joyful.

      Andy is amazing. He was essentially our personal tour guide on our trip!
      This was a great experience that Andy set up for us. He was very professional, helpful, courteous and an overall good guy. We used him for a number of different tours as well, including the helicopter ride over the falls. He was responsible for all of our taxi rides and transfers in Livingstone, Zambia. It felt like he was our personal local guide for our trip!

      Fantastic experience. Would recommend to everyone.
      DO IT. Absolutely great experience and service and worth every cent and more. Devil’s Pool is an absolute must do - incredible adventure and breathtaking views, though it was provided by another operator. Andy’s service was also excellent. Spoke with him over a few months prior to our trip to figure out what could be done in the timeframe (with border crossings and all) and he was very responsive throughout via WhatsApp. The pick up, border crossings and drop off were seamless as well. Would recommend his services to everyone.

      Highly highly recommended
      We would highly recommend Shepherd Taxi and Tours to anyone who is looking to get around the (many) attractions of Livingstone and Victoria Falls. We chose to use them after being quoted an extremely expensive price for an airport transfer by our hotel (the David Livingstone) and reading all the other recommendations for Shepherd Taxis on Tripadvisor. We were only looking to save a bit of money on our transfer to the hotel but ended up with so much more! As well as the ride from the airport, Andy ended up driving us anywhere in Livingstone (and Zimbabwe) that we needed to go and - as others have noted - was a massive help with the logistics, especially in getting us smoothly through the border formalities when crossing into Zimbabwe. His van was clean, comfortable, air-conditioned and with more than enough space for our family of five (and luggage) and Andy was also a great source of information about all the activities on offer and life in general in Livingstone. If we are ever in Livingstone again, we will definitely call upon his excellent services. Highly recommended, and if we could give six stars, we would!!

      5 stars to Andy
      We first met Andy in Lusaka from where he drove us to Livingstone aa the flight was full. From Livingstone he took us to Zimbabwe for both the helicopter and walking tours to see the Victoria Falls. He was very helpful with the border formalities. The next day he took us over to Botswana and arranged a boat tour and safari in the Chobe national park. We again had a great day and everything was very organized and punctual. The third day he took us to the Livingstone park for another safari. We got good information and felt he was looking out for us and making sure we don’t pay too much for anything. He is a very nice person and can most likely arrange anything you wish to do. You will make the most of your trip if you let these guys plan your scedule throughout your stay. We had one of our best holidays ever thanks to them. Strong recommendation.

      A Very Reliable and Safe Tour Company
      We used Shepherd taxi and tours for our holiday in Livingstone, Zambia with daytrips to zimbabwe and Botswana. Everything worked exactly as planned. Their cars are nice and clean and our driver Andy was very good and punctual. These guys are safe and trustworthy. Highly recommended!

      Reliable, friendly, helpful, punctual, everything you want from a chauffeur!
      Excellent service and extremely reliable. I have now used Andy and his partner Robbie at least 5 times and will not consider another option Every time I cross the border into Botswana Andy is available... When I return and require help with my bags at the ferry he has already organised someone. Cost is reasonable and great value for money. There are Defintely cheaper options... But in this day and age is your health and safety worth the risk?.... Andy gives peace of mind

      Angel's pool in Livingstone was awesome!
      These guys are pros! They're incredibly brave and professional. I purchased the tour from Viator which uses the local tour company, Shepherd. Shepherd contacted me via WhatsApp and went through everything with me. For a small fee, they arranged roundtrip transport from and to my hotel in Victoria Falls. This was not included in the tour. I was transported across the border to Zambia. All went quickly and smoothly (maybe cuz it was low season). From there we met up with others and signed some papers. Then a short boat ride on the river which leads to Livingstone Island, which is on top of the Falls. It's beautiful! From there we got ready to walk over to the edge of the Falls where we got into Angel's Pool. It's hella scary but the guys held our hands, literally, and slowly and carefully told us exactly what to do. The whole time they had our phones and were taking pictures and videos of us. Make sure your phone is waterproof or in a waterproof case cuz it may still get wet even though they put it in a Ziploc bag for protection. The spray of the falls is soaking! Afterwards, you're given a delicious breakfast, depending on the time slot u choose. From door to door, my tour was 9:10am to 12:50 pm. It was an experience of a lifetime!

      担当してくださったアンディさんは、「目配り」、「気配り」、「心配り」を常にしてくださり、豊富な知識で素晴らしい旅を提供してくださいました。時間にもとても正確で、スケジュールが滞りなく進行しました。日本人の私達も「おもてなしの心」を改めて学ばせていただきました。 Andy is really attentive to customer, always punctual and full of knowledge and experience.Japanese people are considered to be plite, but we need to learn from him. Thank you for the amazing memories!

      Great Visit to Livingstone with Andy
      I was only in the Victoria Falls area for a couple days so I wanted to pack in as much as possible and Andy really made it happen. He picked me up at Livingstone airport, booked my Livingstone Island/Devil's Pool visit, organised a Chobe Park safari, took me to the Zim side of the falls, and finally brought me to the Vic Falls airport. Everything worked out very smoothly, and Andy's partners in Botswana and Zimbabwe were almost as great as he is! Overall a wonderful experience for a fair price, I highly recommend Shepherd Tours to anyone visiting Livingstone.

      Fantastic day trip to Chobe from Livingstone
      We had an excellent trip. The pickup, the border crossings, the guide was great. We saw lions about 50 m away, many elephants, also incredibly close to our open safari truck. Hippos close by with the boat safari and an excellent lunch. The whole day was very good and even though a bit on the expensive side, it was well worth the money and a must to do when in Livingstone. Great wild park to visit in Botswana. Highly recommend the trip.

      Awesome day-trip
      The combination of river cruise safari and land makes this a Must-Do activity. The transfer from the Livingstone lodge to Chobe was amazingly well coordinated across border crossings via shuttle, speed boat and safari 4x4. The collection of animals may seem small but, the amount of Impalas, Hippos and Elephants was mind boggling. The lunch was great despite having vegetarian restrictions.

      Outstanding service in every way
      Shepherd provided one of the most professional, thoughtful and tailored services I have experiences on my many travels. My mum, who uses a wheelchair, and I are travelling through Southern Africa and we relied on Shepherd's advice and transport during our brief stay in Livingstone. He was friendly and knowledgable, always punctual, and very considerate of my mum's additional needs. He drove very safely. Shepherd collected us from the Zambian-ZImbabwean border, took me to the Livingstone Island tour, and then took both of us to the Zambian-Botswanan border where he even rode the ferry with us to help my mum off at the other side. Exceptionally high level of care, and reasonably priced. I cannot thank, nor recommend, Shepherd highly enough. With gratitude from your Australian friends, Joanne and Georgia
