Zimbabwe

Hand-crafted Travel to Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe has a reputation for being home to some of Africa’s finest guides, incredibly welcoming, warm hospitality and some of the friendliest people you are likely to meet on your travels! This is a destination for clients who are looking to stay away from the crowds and get off the beaten track. Although it has had its difficulties in the past, today it is very much back on everyone’s radar as a premium safari destination.

Zimbabwe boasts a huge variety of wildlife, scenery, habitat, cultural history and activities across safari destinations. From rafting down the Zambezi River to fishing in tiny mountain streams for trout, it guarantees a diverse and extremely hands-on experience. The country’s dramatic landscapes vary from the balancing rocks of the Matopos and shoreline sunsets on Lake Kariba to the mighty Victoria Falls and scenes of wild animals in their natural habitat. This is the destination for an adventure of a lifetime.

Zimbabwe is very much a seasonal safari destination, albeit not quite as limited as neighbouring Zambia in terms of camp closures in the summer season.

Safaris do remain possible throughout the year, although it is worth considering how hot and wet the summer season can be and visits here are not for the faint hearted. Conversely, the dry winter months between June and October offer some of the very best safaris that Africa has to offer, with incredible wildlife viewing to be enjoyed in some of the most remarkable landscapes anywhere on the continent.

Zimbabwe Hotspots

From Victoria Falls on the western boarder with Zambia, to Gonarezheu in the south east, there is a lot to discover in Zimbabwe. The capital Harare will serve as your travel hub, before adventures to Hwange National Park or Mana Pools National Park.

Victoria Falls

The crashing deluge of the mighty Zambezi as it spectacularly plunges over the Victoria Falls is one of Africas most awe-inspiring and iconic sights. We think that the Falls are best seen from the Zimbabwean side and when you are standing close to the worlds greatest mass of falling water and enjoying the sight of double rainbows, you won’t feel short-changed.

Known by its African name, Mosi-ay-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), the Falls are now linked by dozens of daily flights and holds a reputation for being the adrenaline centre of Africa with bungee jumping, white water rafting and helicopter flights that drop right into the gorge.
