Zimbabwe Safari Holidays

Often overlooked due to its turbulent political situation, Zimbabwe is now re-emerging as a worthy contender on the safari circuit.  Steeped in history, with no fewer than 5 UNESCO World Heritage sites, the scenery is both beautiful and awe-inspiring with plenty of wildlife to boot.  The varied and dramatic landscapes never fail to deliver, be it flying over the mighty Victoria Falls or enjoying a walking safari in Mana Pools.

This landlocked country comes complete with a host of diverse environments for you to explore and it is a nature and wildlife enthusiast’s playground.  As well as the obvious Victoria Falls, the famous Hwange National Park and the beautiful Mana Pools with its stunning landscapes, other areas are emerging as popular destinations for both old and new travellers to Zimbabwe.   Gonarezhou, a relatively unexplored, rugged yet beautiful area is emerging as a sought after destination for those wanting something a little more challenging and off the beaten track.  Zimbabwe has it all to offer.

If you are unsure about spending your entire holiday in Zimbabwe, why not opt for a multi destination trip, it combines easily with both Zambia and Botswana, or even South Africa, we love Zimbabwe and don’t think you will be disappointed. 

Zimbabwe is ready for you, just ask one of our consultants and they can put together the perfect trip, tailor made just for you.

Key highlights

  • The cascading waters of Victoria Falls, they are at their fullest (you’ll get wet) in April.
  • The healthy wildlife population of Hwange National Park.
  • Enjoy a walking safari in Mana Pools, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
