Zimbabwe

Why Choose Zimbabwe?

A country of unrivalled beauty and spectacular scenery, Zimbabwe is a land of enormous diversity with something to offer everyone. The thunder and awesome majesty of Victoria Falls, the abundance of animals (Hwange National Park is home to one of Africa's largest elephant populations), the warmth and openness of expert guides, the exhilaration of white water rafting or canoeing the calmer reaches of the mighty Zambezi, enjoying breath-taking scenery on the way.

The ancient stone ruins of Great Zimbabwe (a Unesco World Heritage Site), Lake Kariba offering watersports and African wildlife viewing in its almost natural environment, exquisite rock formations in Matobo, the Eastern Highlands offering fine walking and fishing and an incredible range of camps from extraordinarily comfortable to extraordinarily close to Nature - you will find all of these in Zimbabwe and more. Zimbabwe is definitely back on the list of "must visit" places in Africa!

Where is Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe Highlights

  • Victoria Falls - The smoke that thunders! No visit to Zimbabwe is truly complete without setting eyes on one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, the magnificent Victoria Falls. At an incredible 1,708 meters wide, the Victoria Falls is the largest curtain of water in the world and is a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur located on the Zambezi River bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe. Seeped in history and magnificent to behold, the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ is defiantly a “must do before I die” experience. The Zimbabwe side offers a fantastic vantage point as it overlooks the main flow and frontage of the Falls. There are many ways to view the Falls: by land, river and from the air - in a microlight, fixed-wing aircraft or helicopter. 
  • Mana Pools National Park - Get away from it all on a remote safari on the middle reaches of the Zambezi River situated in the heart of the Zambezi Valley.
  • Hwange National Park -  Home to a rich variety of different habitats, vegetation and wildlife, explore the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe.
  • Lake Kariba - Enjoy waterbourne safaris and spectacular sunsets on the largest artificial lake and reservoir in the world.
