Zimbabwe is the hidden gem of Southern Africa, you will experience one of the world’s largest waterfalls in Victoria Falls, indulge in rich cultural experiences and enjoy the best game views. Few African destinations can compete with the mighty Victoria Falls for sheer visual drama. At its full, roaring peak, the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ is one of the most mesmerising sights, leaving visitors mesmerised and feeling exhilarated at the same time. The falls are on the mighty Zambezi River, which means you can see them from both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Arguably, the best on-foot views are from Zimbabwean side.
Zimbabwe is so much more than Victoria Falls: it is one of Southern Africa’s most rewarding big game safari destinations.
Zimbabwe is an authentic, rugged destination that we recommend for an off-the-beaten track experience. In addition to delivering excellent game viewing in the care of some of the most respected guides in the business, a Zimbabwe holiday offers classic tented camps that are comfortable without being ostentatious, fresh, wholesome cuisine, and one of the warmest welcomes in the world.
Zimbabwe’s flagship reserve is Hwange National Park, a short drive from Victoria Falls and home to a full cast of mammals, from lions, leopards and hyenas to big herds of elephant and buffalo, elegant antelope, giraffe and zebra. Add to these characters the wildlife of the Zambezi River – hippos, crocodiles and shy water buck and you’re on safari in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park, where activities include game drives, canoe adventures and walking safaris.
Zimbabwe’s less well-known destinations offer some unique experiences that make them well worth the effort of getting there. Fly in to Matusadona National Park, set on the shores of Lake Kariba, a haven for rhinos and elephants and home to a thriving lion population. Southwestern Zimbabwe is home to Matobos National Park an area of granite Kopjes and wooded valleys: a surreal, hauntingly beautiful rocky landscape that is home to an extraordinary collection of ancient rock art sites, the tomb of Cecil John Rhodes as well as a thriving leopard & Rhino population.
