Zimbabwe Safari Tour
Zimbabwe is a country blessed with great natural beauty, amazing safari and game reserves as well as mineral wealth. The diverse landscape changes from mountainous to wilderness to typical Bushveld. The Zimbabwean area is also home to large animals and a large bird population, making this area a great place for a safari – yet a relatively untouched and unknown magical paradise…. Zimbabwe is a country located in the southern part of the continent of Africa, between the Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River, Kariba Dam and the Limpopo River. Zimbabwe is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the west, Zambia to the north and Mozambique to the east. The best thing about Zimbabwe is that it is a relatively unknown and untouched area making it the ideal safari destination; as it has the most amazing sights as well as great safari wildlife and lush vegetation.
History & Background of Zimbabwe: One of the country's greatest attractions is the Ruins of the Great Zimbabwe which date back to the 11th century when it was the trading capital of the wealthiest and most powerful society in south-eastern Africa. The Ndebele and Shona tribes were predominant when the English took over and called the country Rhodesia, and in 1980 this Zimbabwean area became independent. Zimbabwe, like many other countries over the world, experienced some political changes – with a new president and his ‘strong views’ coming into power. As much news cover as there has been, the Zimbabwean people have remained a positive and sweet nation. Visiting Zimbabwe and meeting the local people is a humbling experience – they are extremely kind and passive individuals who are more then willing to share their magnificent Zimbabwean attractions with any traveller.
Scheduled and Tailor-made Zimbabwe safaris: Zimbabwe is becoming the traveller’s choice for a safari destination in Southern Africa for a true African bush experience. Below you will find some small group (maximum of 10 clients) Zimbabwe safaris that Jenman African Safaris runs in and around this wonderful area. You can join one of our scheduled camping or lodge safaris or if you’d like, one of our experienced travel consultants can tailor–make a private Zimbabwe safari to meet your departure date, time period, group size and budget. We highly recommend a Zimbabwe safari to Victoria Falls and to the Zambezi River!
Best Game Viewing Months: The best time to travel in Zimbabwe is April through to September when the weather is mild with little rain. October starts to get hot and November to March its hot with the occasional afternoon rain showers. Victoria Falls is at its fullest in January through to April but the best time to see Victoria Falls is August through to December as it clearer to see the falls with less water being thrown up in the air. In the lower Zambezi the rainy season is from mid-November to mid-March and this can make some of the roads impassable.
Most of the walking safaris and canoe safaris run throughout the year as there are usually only short rain showers in the afternoon followed by wonderful sunny weather.
