Zambezi Guestbook

Matusadona - situated on the shores of Lake Kariba, Matusadona National Park is one of the last wild sanctuaries of the endangered Black Rhino and is now considered to have the highest natural population density of lions in Africa. Matusadona is ideal walking safari territory and boasts some of the regions finest safari lodges and bush camps - the area is worth visiting year round.    (...see more)

Mana Pools - Zimbabwe's second World Heritage Site situated on the southern bank of the Zambezi River. Mana's floodplain plays host to a profusion of game during the dry season from June to October. The area is spectacular with the Zambian escarpment acting as a backdrop. Aside from the excellent walking safaris in Mana, the Zambezi River adds another dimension and is ideal for canoe safaris. The southern shoreline in Zimbabwe has two excellent safari lodges and is renowned for its "backed up" fly camps that offer an ideal means for exploring this unique area.    (...see more)


        

Hwange National Park - ranks amongst the finest of Africa's game reserves - it arguably sustains a greater diversity and variety of wildlife than any other conservation area in the world. Hwange is situated on nearly 2000000 hectares of Kalahari Sand and holds no permanent water - gameviewing is therefore excellent with large populations of big and small mammal species and particularly strong concentrations of Buffalo and Elephant. Hwange, especially around Main Camp is very popular - there is also a selection of first class private safari camps and lodges in the more secluded and quieter areas of this massive park.    

Victoria Falls - World Heritage Site and one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is recognised as one of Southern Africa's prime tourism drawcards. The falls, flowing at just under 33 million cubic metres per second at peak during April are truly spectacular and represent the largest curtain of falling water on earth. Any safari in southern Africa should include a stop-over at Vic Falls - we recommend a maximum stay of two nights unless circus shows are a turn-on! Vic Falls is an important hub into the more attractive safari destinations elsewhere in Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana.    (...see more)

Victoria Falls

Bulawayo/Matobo Hils - Bulawayo, meaning "place of slaughter" is one of Zimbabwe's oldest and most historically important towns. The Motobo Hills ("matobo" - 'bald-headed ones') are best described as "a moonscape of endless granite humpbacks" covering an area of approximately 2000 square kilometres - a region packed with history and legends of Shona dynasties, Ndebele armies, British colonists and the many wars that they fought. The area is well known for its impressive rock art paintings and the site of Cecil John Rhodes' grave. It is also believed that the Motobo Hills have the highest concentration of Black Eagles in the world.

Eastern Highlands - this north-eastern sector of Zimbabwe is not in the ordinary sense a wildlife destination. It is however well known for its wonderful mountainous and legend-filled landscape, birdlife, botanical attractions, trout fishing and excellent hiking and walking trails. The Eastern Highlands are off the main safari circuit and should ideally be tackled on a self-drive basis.
