Zimbabwe is a beautiful country, with diverse safari areas, friendly people and remarkable wildlife. Zimbabwe boasts one of the stunning wonders of the world in the Victoria Falls. Additionally, Zimbabwe boasts the mighty Zambezi river and various wildlife-rich and beautiful national parks. The activities available in Zimbabwe are as diverse as its wildlife, with among the best professional guides on the continent you can walk close to predators and elephants in safety, canoe waterways filled with crocs and hippos, enjoy fishing and much much more.
Two of the most popular area of Zimbabwe is Hwange National Park almost in the centre of the country and Mana Pools which is an all-time favourite for experienced travellers up on the northern "Zambezi River' boundary to Zambia's Lower Zambezi National Park.
Hwange National Park comprises 14,500 square kilometres, boasting large elephant numbers as well as general game and predators. Once the home to infamous Cecil the lion which was carelessly and brutally hunted in 2015 by a bloodthirsty moron, Hwange still proves an excellent location to witness these animals go about the natural activities on vast open plains and wooded savannah.
Mana Pools National Park is situated along the mighty Zambezi River which flows from Botswana's northern area, Linyanti all the way through to Lake Kariba and on to Kabasa bora. Definitely an experiential location; offering incredible game viewing, walking safaris, canoeing and fishing for the adventurous family. Be prepared to cast amongst crocodiles and hippos for the elusive and cunning tigerfish as Southern Africa is known for!
No trip to Zimbabwe is complete without a visit to the Victoria Falls in the town of Victoria Falls. Most Zimbabwe itineraries would include Victoria Falls as a stopover for a night or two to allow for a scenic falls visit and cultural immersion as you take on and practice your trading techniques with the ever so creative Zimbabwe community.
Zimbabwe offers daily international flights from both Victoria Falls and Harare and is considered a convenient entry or exit location for many sub-Saharan safari itineraries. Victoria Falls also has quick and easy access by road to both Kasane, Botswana and Livingstone, Zambia.
