SPEAK TO US

Zimbabwe is one of Africa’s newest and most exciting safari destinations, with its vast untamed wilderness, abundant wildlife and spectacular landscapes overshadowing the country’s turbulent history. Whether you want to track rhino, go bungee jumping over Victoria Falls or admire ancient San rock art, a tailor-made Zimbabwe holiday is always an adventure. The national parks here are world-class yet less visited than those in neighbouring countries, making a safari in Zimbabwe feel remote and exclusive.

OUR SAFARIS

 
  • Hwange National Park

    Founded in 1928, Hwange (pronounced ‘Wang-ee’) is one of the ten largest national parks in Africa.

  • Victoria Falls

    Although neither the tallest nor widest waterfall, Victoria Falls is known as the world’s largest waterfall thanks to its 108 m height combined with a vast 1,708 m width.

  • Mana Pools National Park

    Located in the heart of a protected area that runs from Lake Kariba to the Mozambique border, Mana Pools is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most incredible tracts of untamed wilderness in all of Africa.

  • Lake Kariba and Matusadona National Park

    Matusadona National Park is located on the southern edge of Lake Kariba, the fourth largest man-made lake in the world.

  • Matobo National Park

    Matobo, meaning ‘bald-headed ones’ in Ndebele, is named after the stacked, balancing granite rock formations dotted across the 3,000 km² of rolling hills.

  • South Gonarezhou National Park

    South Gonarezhou National Park boasts vast expanses of untouched wilderness with open plains, dense acacia, and mahogany woodlands as well as dramatic red sandstone cliffs.

When to go

 

The dry season between June and October is the best time see wildlife in Zimbabwe. With less surface water available wildlife concentrates near water making it easier to spot. June is often the best month to see both wildlife and Victoria Falls with a decent flow of water.

 

Zimbabwe’s wet season which runs from November to May is the best time for birders to visit the country’s national parks. During this period an abundance of domestic and migratory birds can be seen. Road quality does suffer during the rains and so travel within parks can be quite restrictive.
