Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe

There’s a reason we return time and again to Zimbabwe! The wildlife is incredible, the people are amazing and there is a wide variety of experiences to be had.

Hwange National Park is an elephant lover’s paradise. From toenail level photography sessions in hidden blinds to al fresco dining on a camp deck mere feet away from a thirsty herd visiting a waterhole, Hwange is the epicenter of successful elephant conservation initiatives and community development programs funded by eco-tourism. Combined with mountain bike and walking safaris, fly camping under the stars and legendary guides trained to the highest standard on the continent, you can begin to see what makes Zim so special.

Further afield is Mana Pools National Park, on the banks of the Zambezi, where elephants stand on their hind legs to pick acacia pods, lions lounge in the midday sun and wild dogs roam in search of prey. Brave guests might consider a canoe trip on the Zambezi River, but a sharp-eyed guide is critical to keep you out of hippo pods and away from the crocodiles.

No Zimbabwe trip is complete without a visit to Victoria Falls, a veritable wonder of the world and a great place for curio shopping!

For those looking to get way off the beaten path, consider Gonarezhou National Park in remote southeast Zimbabwe. This vast wilderness park is home to hyena, leopard, rhino and more.

For a relaxing escape, Lake Kariba cannot be beaten. Its widely considered the Riviera of Africa.
