5 Reasons to Choose an Escorted Tour in Zimbabwe

August 22 2017

Zimbabwe is a wonderful touring country with a great road network. We understand visiting a new destination for the first time can be daunting so we would highly recommend choosing an escorted tour. You will be accompanied throughout by a professional and knowledgeable driver guide who will gladly share their knowledge and passion to ensure you get the most out of your holiday.

It is possible to tour the entire country including its many and varied attractions from Great Zimbabwe’s awe-inspiring ruins to Mana Pools National Park and Cecil Rhodes moving grave overlooking the unusual Motopos National Park. If you enjoy the ‘doing’ and ‘experiencing’ instead of merely seeing, an escorted tour will get you off the beaten track and enable you to have a depper interest in your surroundings.

5 Reasons to choose an Escorted Tour

  1. It is Hassle Free. Your driver and guide will organise everything from checking fuel, oil and water levels, ensuring that vehicles have all the required safety gear, to navigating and dealing with any police roadblocks etc.
  2. Seeing the countryside. Driving allows you to view the countryside and countless small moments and small beauties in ways that flying never can. The scenery along the route is spectacular and many will find the traditional homesteads interesting.
  3. The Flexibility. As much as possible this is your schedule- choose to stop and explore when you see something of interest, wake up late if you prefer, eat where and when you want.
  4. Your Driver/Guide and soon to be friend! We cannot emphasise enough how much is revealed to you by being accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide. Your driver/guide will answer your questions as you go and show you hidden local gems as well as explaining the rich tapestry of flora, fauna, culture and history of the country.
  5. Meeting the People. Above all, Zimbabwe is known for its people – proud, warm, friendly – a people eager to share their country, their culture, and their hospitality with you.
