Our goal is to promote sustainable and responsible tourism. As our founder, Herbert, was originally a teacher and worked at different schools in Zambia as well as in Botswana, he knows the region very well. It is our goal to support the local community through education. So besides Nekacheya Travel and Tours, Herbert and his wife founded a school called "Nekacheya school" which is a pre and primary school, but it doesn't stop there; we also invest in learning materials such as books, pens, etc. for the people who live in the more rural region in Zambia. We believe that through education we are able to help the local community in the best way possible.
We attempt to introduce Zambian nature to the Zambian people by advertising our tours in downtown Livingstone. This way believe we can let Zambian's be proud of the natural beauties of there nation. Our intention by doing this is to involve the local people into natural conservation and make them aware of the environment they live in.
As well as investing in the education we immerse our clients into our culture through our community tours and safaris in the more rural areas. This way we are able to share the knowledge concerning our culture with our clients.

We welcome volunteers to experience the Nekacheya ways and values. Students, adults, friends, couples,... everyone is welcome at our school to volunteer for as long as they desire. There is also the possibility to stay in one of our three guest rooms with private bathroom which is located next to our office. While volunteering we can provide you with freshly cooked local meals and we welcome you with open arms in our team!
Covid-19 Cancellation Policy
We know that the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in many changes in the way you would want to travel. In light of that we have worked out a Covid-19 policy that allows you to continue to plan and book your vacation with your mind at ease, these are:

2. Bookings can be amended up to 12 (twelve) months from the original arrival date. Please note only one amendment to travel dates may be made and should the season change to a higher rate season, the new rate will apply.
3. In the event that you (or your clients) do not travel within 12 (twelve) months of the original arrival date, the 50% deposit would be forfeited – always assuming the Corona Epidemic has been contained by then.
4. Any travel changes to bookings within 14 (fourteen) days of the travel period will incur 100% cancellation fees.
5. The above will only apply if we have received the required deposit or the full payment to confirm your reservation.
1. Any bookings made from 12 March 2020 will be subject to the following Special Conditions.
2. A deposit of 20% will be required at the time of booking.
3. 6 (six) weeks prior to arrival the balance of 80% will be required to confirm the reservation.
5. If a booking is cancelled within 4 (four) weeks of arrival a 50% cancellation fee will apply.
We will have the following exceptions where bookings are cancelled within 14 days of travel, whereby clients will be offered the same deferral policy as above:
