Zimbabwe plays host to a multitude of fantastic places, wildlife, people and experiences. In the Ultimate Zimbabwe Safari we have cherry picked some of the best, and some of the lesser known treasures that this fabulous country has to offer.

Your trip will begin in Victoria Falls, you'll have one night here. There will be time to visit the magnificent Victoria Falls if you wish. You'll have the chance to get a good night's rest after your long haul flight and enjoy your first taste of friendly Zimbabwean hospitality.

From here you visit Hwange, the county's largest wildlife reserve and home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including one of the largest elephant populations in the world, around 44,000 at the last aerial count.

A light aircraft flight will take you to the magnificent Lake Kariba and Matusadona National Park where you'll have the opportunity to explore this remote area in the heart of Lake Kariba. Set the pace you want, either relaxing or joining exhilarating game drives, perhaps try your hand at tiger fishing, you'll be hooked (no pun intended)!

No trip to Zimbabwe would be complete without a visit to Mana Pools, a beautiful wildlife conservation area offering authentic safaris. Mana is known for wildlife as many animals come here in search of water. It's a wonderful place to take a walking safari too, in fact we recommend it.

Last, and by no means least you'll be transferred to Gonarezhou in southern Zimbabwe, a magical place, that receives fewer visitors than the other parks. This is wild Zimbabwe, pristine wilderness, superb wildlife and breathtaking scenery.

Gonarezhou is a conservation success story. You'll be staying at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge, perched on granite rocks overlooking the river. Clive Stockhill, the founder of the lodge played a vital part in bringing the community round to understanding and benefitting from tourism in this area which spearheaded a remarkable reduction in wildlife poaching. You can visit Mahenye Village to get an insight into Shangaan society.

We believe, this safari will get you hooked on this wonderful country and have you returning for more fantastic experiences.
