Zimbabwe Safari

Zimbabwe has a well deserved reputation as one of the best safari destinations in Africa and with its welcoming people, diverse scenery, rich wildlife, historic sites and some of the best guiding in Africa it is perhaps a less obvious yet truly remarkable holiday destination.

Blessed with some of the most iconic places in Africa; including the mighty Victoria Falls, there are various safari options to choose from in Zimbabwe including traditional game drive safaris in Hwange to walking and canoe safaris in Mana Pools which is set along the shores of the Zambezi River. On top of this, there are some amazing historical and cultural sites to visit such as Matobo Hills and the Great Zimbabwe ruins, proving Zimbabwe is one of the most diverse destinations in Africa. 

Being a landlocked country it borders with South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique and has a wide range of diverse environments ripe for exploring. The stunning Eastern Highlands run down the border with Mozambique offering a diversity of habitats: from rolling grassy hills, to valleys of rainforest and drier woodland at higher altitudes and Gonarezhou is one of the most rugged, beautiful and unexplored parks in Southern Africa.
