Ecologically diverse and unique, and varied in landscape and culture, a Zimbabwe safari will satisfy a wide range of bucket list experiences. Zimbabwe’s charm stretches from one side of the country to the other as its rich scenery offers an irresistible lure for safari seekers.
Including wildlife havens like Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park and the astonishing sight of the mighty Victoria Falls in your Zimbabwe holiday itinerary are sure to create a memorable excursion. Both Mana Pools and Victoria Falls have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, together with the Great Zimbabwe Monument, the Khami Ruins and Matobo Hills. The famed Zimbabwe national parks teem with a great variety of wildlife, including the Big 5 and with the mighty elephant herds claiming a popular spot on all the best-of-Zimbabwe lists. A Zimbabwe wildlife safari is truly unrivalled.
Bordered by the Zambezi River to the north and the Limpopo River to the south, discovering Zimbabwe by water is a must. And there’s no place better for this than “The Smoke That Thunders”, as Victoria Falls are also known, with excursions like white-water rafting, sundowner cruises and even helicopter flights and bungee jumping to participate in.
Travellers to Zimbabwe can get their cultural fix in Matobo Hills, home to one of the highest concentrations of rock art in Southern Africa and evidence that the area has been occupied for more than 500 000 years. Other places of historical interest include the burial site of Ndebele king Mzilikazi and the grave of Cecil John Rhodes, a British mining magnate who served as prime minister of the Cape Colony in the late 1890s.
