Zimbabwe

why

Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe is quickly shaking off its troubled recent past. Zimbabwe has it all: incredible parks, ancient stone ruins whose origins are still shrouded in mystery, astonishing wildlife and some of the friendliest locals you will ever meet, even through 37 years of oppression enforced by an evil dictator.

    • Population: 16.1 million (2016)
    • Area: 390,757 km2 (60th largest country by area)
    • Capital: Harare

Victoria

Falls

The mighty Zambezi River, Zimbabwe’s northern border flows over the famous Victoria Falls on its course east to the Indian Ocean through Lake Kariba and Mana Pools National Park in the heart of the Lower Zambezi. Victoria Falls was the start or end of so many of our safaris over the years, it too holds a special place in our hearts. One of the seven natural wonders of the world, a must see for anyone visiting southern Africa. Locally known called Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke which thunders), aptly named when you see her plume of spray from a distance, or hear her roar up close.

  • Self-guided tour of the Falls, getting drenched in the wet season!.
  • Sundowners on the Zambezi River above the Falls on a houseboat.
  • Gorge jumping for the adrenalin junkie.
  • Fishing for tiger fish and bream.
  • Helicoptering over the falls for a true appreciation of her majesty.

Mana Pools

National Park

Adjacent the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia. Incredible game viewing typically with spectacular views of the river, floodplains, broadleafed tree canopy and the distant backdrop of the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment to the north.

  • Canoeing the river getting up close and personal with elephants.
  • Fishing for tiger fish and bream.
  • World class game viewing.
  • Galloping on a horse across the arid plains.
  • Hippos and crocs galore.

Hwange

Hwange

National Park

Hwange is south of Victoria Falls and is vast. One of my most memorable evenings on safari was a sundowner on the plains. The scenery was like a painting, with palm trees dotted here, plains game and birds 360 degrees around as far as the eye could see. With just a rhino missing to make up the big 5 all in view at the same time, all we had to do was wait, listen and watch. Sure enough, out of the treeline came the rhino to complete the surreal scene. The best part, we were the only vehicle there. A diverse number of habitats support large numbers of game all year round.

  • World class wildlife all year round.
  • Elephants galore.
  • Friendly and highly knowledgeable staff.
  • Walking safaris with professional guides in the park.
  • Up close and personal and waterhole hides.
  • Night game drives in search of nocturnal creatures.
  • Sleeping out under the stars.
