Zambezi Africa Tours cc is the brain child of Justice T. Former high school mathematics teacher in Zimbabwe and South Africa for 13 years; his passion has always been traveling and discovering new ventures in life. Justice grew up in the eastern highlands of Mutare region in Zimbabwe one of the most scenic regions of mountains and valleys in Africa. As a boy scout one of his exciting moments in life was camping in tents in the bush and learning survival skills. The awareness and love of nature was inculcated at young age understanding the co-existence of humans and the environment.
As a teacher who had the opportunity to teach in Zimbabwe and South Africa, he quickly understood the need to embrace different cultures and way of doing things. This further enhanced the need to learn 5 more new languages to be able to effectively communicate with the different tribal groupings in Southern Africa namely ISiZulu, IsiXhosa, Setswana, Sesotho and Sepedi. He volunteered to teach in ABET (Adult based Education Training) schools in Soshanguve at the same time pursuing studies in Tourism; Cultural guiding in Western Cape and the Karoo was the entry certification before moving on to the greater South Africa and eventually through experience guided in the 9 other countries: Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe.
Justice worked as a freelance Tourist Guide for a number of Over-landing companies over 7 years. His responsibilities included driving, cooking, guiding on nature and culture among others. Planning activities and running pre- scheduled was the culture of then traditional Over-landing tours.
With the passion to integrate tourism, nature and the environment he felt compelled to build on a brand that would focus mainly on Responsible traveling. He teamed up with a local non-governmental organisation EBZtrust who were already doing work in rural areas to plant trees. AS part of the drive to offset carbon-footprints, the co-existence of ZAT and EBZtrust made it possible to combine Tourism and caring for the Environment. In the first year of formation ZAT together with EBZtrust, Forestry Commission of Zimbabwe, students and communities of Monde and Sizinda, we planted over 10 000 indigenous trees.
