Zimbabwe safaris

Victoria Falls, Hwange and Mana Pools offer some of Africa’s best safari highlights, Zimbabwe is great value too!

Notwithstanding over a decade of political chaos, the country is safe.

With exceptional diversity, strong populations of big game and Africa’s most skilled and experienced professional safari guides, Zimbabwe ranks alongside Botswana and Zambia as a premier safari tour destination.

  • The Victoria Falls hub makes it very easy to arrange a thoroughly successful traditional wildlife safari in Southern Africa.
  • Hwange National Park is the obvious choice for big 5 game animal options and it’s simply combined with Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and South Africa.
  • The lower Zambezi valley is especially good for an active combination of walking safaris and canoe safaris in the Mana Pools - Chewore - Sapi World Heritage Site.

The wildlife is exceptional, with outstanding landscapes and some vast, unpopulated, remote and undeveloped wilderness areas towards the confluence of the Zambezi and Luangwa rivers.

We find no good reason to expect political or economic recovery any time soon. Zimbabwe is safe for travellers in Victoria Falls, Hwange and on the lower Zambezi.

One certainty is that Zimbabwe offers the most productive and best value safari trips in Southern Africa right now
