Zimbabwe

A truly unique country full of surprises and beauty

One of the least visited countries on the African safari circuit due to previous political instability, Zimbabwe is an incredible place to experience game viewing from beyond the vehicle.

When we visited last November, we were taken aback by the quality of lodging and game viewing opportunities. and With extremely hospitable and welcoming people, it is quickly becoming a premium safari destination.

Zimbabwe is one of the few destinations where you are more likely to pull on your walking boots than jump into a vehicle. Known to have some of the best guides and finest quality of safari in all of Africa as well as a disproportionately low number of tourists, Zimbabwe is raising the benchmark for the luxury safari experience.

Our highlights of Zimbabwe include Mana Pools, Hwange and Gonarezhou National Parks, as well as Victoria Falls, the world’s largest waterfall. Given the areas are very different from each other means that you can easily spend two weeks in Zimbabwe and still see something unique every day.

We guarantee that the outstanding quality of guiding in Zimbabwe can make a huge difference to your overall experience. The safari goes beyond just watching animals from the comfort of a vehicle and includes tracking and approaching animals on foot and in canoes. After such an exhilarating experience, you may never want to return to the traditional safaris of other Southern and Eastern African countries.

“Toby and James excelled themselves pulling together a completely bespoke self-driving trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe. Toby worked really closely with me to make sure everything worked perfectly, rearranging the trip several times to make sure it was completely right.”

Time your visit with Zimbabwe’s Weather

A great time to visit Zimbabwe to make the most of the fantastic safari on offer is during the dry season between June and October.

Towards the end of this period, when water levels are at their lowest, animals converge around the water sources making for spectacular viewings.

This is also a great time to see the Victoria Falls as there is reduced spray, meaning you can actually see the grandeur of the waterfall without getting soaked.

The Green Season runs from November to May with showers possible at any time throughout the day. The wettest period is between December and February. Several lodges and camps are closed during the wettest months. If camps are open, prices tend to be much lower. The wet season is also the calving season.
