Getting around

Zimbabwe has an enormous variety of safari-based accommodations ranging from world class hotels to permanent lodges to traditional tented camps to very basic campsites. The standard of safari lodges in Zimbabwe is exceptionally high and compares favourably with the best elsewhere in the region. Most lodges accommodate 16 and fewer guests with some of the small seasonal camps assuring a high degree of exclusivity with only 4 beds. With few exceptions, permanent lodges are located on boundaries of the National Parks or on private concessions - seasonal tented camps are found within the parks themselves.

Scroll down for a listing of preferred hotels, safari lodges and camps.
