Having recently been released from political uncertainty Zimbabwe is proving to yet again become a favourite safari destination. Unlocking Zimbabwe's gems which have been preserved in time since political circumstances took a turn is now an exciting opportunity for the adventurous nature seeker.
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.
Ruckomechi Camp rises along the banks of the Zambezi River, gazing out towards Zambia’s evocative escarpment. Its broad-canopied ana trees create glorious shade throughout the camp and are much loved by the elephants for their rich, nutritious seeds.
Activities include vehicle or on foot safari, and boating and canoeing offering a different perspective of the area.
Mana Pools offers the experienced safari goer superb safari experiences and is considered a top photographic destination for elephant and Africa's predators.
Situated in a private concession in the best location in Hwange, Linkwasha is located very near the famed Ngamo Plains, where wildlife gathers in numbers during summer. This only adds to the excellent year-round viewing from the camp itself; Linkwasha overlooks a pan that is a magnet for wildlife seeking to quench its thirst.
Accommodation: The camp is an eclectic mix of contemporary interiors and Ndebele culture, its nine luxurious tents (eight twin and one family) overlooking the scenic plain.
The main area includes various multi-level decks, amongst them, a cosy library complete with fireplace and shaded salas surrounding an inviting pool.
Little Makalolo lies in one of Hwange’s most ecologically-diverse areas, where a large number of solar driven waterholes attracts game from far and wide, and with one in front of camp, wildlife activity can even be enjoyed from the pool or your breakfast table.
Little Makalolo is an intimate and cosy bush camp without the frills and spills, allowing visitors to intimately enjoy the nature and its surrounds.
Six tents (including a family unit), are connected to the main area by teak walkways, where a towering false mopane tree shades a separate dining and living area with views of the much-frequented waterhole.
