Smiling faces, rich culture and jawdropping natural wonders, Zimbabwe is a destination that will charm the hearts of animal-lovers, nature enthusiasts and curious travellers alike.
After a dampening from a period of political turbulence, Zimbabwe remerges strong, ready to offer visitors a glimpse into the unique beauty of the lands. Game parks are pristine, providing wonderful opportunities to see the majestic wildlife venture through the magnificent wilderness.
One of the seven wonders of the world, Victoria Falls, calls the country home. With the powerful current of water that plunges deep into the Zambezi Gorge, this site is aptly named "The Smoke that Thunders". Seeing and hearing its force is a beautiful reminder of Mother Nature's strength. We uncover it more of it at Hwange National Park, a reserve known as one of the last great elephant sanctuaries. See them roam through the arid landscape as we drive through scattered woodlands of teak. For the intrepid traveller, perhaps a journey by kayak down the Zambezi and into Manna Pools National Park, getting up close to the crocodiles and hippos. Back on land we take a drive to the local markets, getting to know the Zimbabweans and their everyday lives. To peer into their history, the ancient city of Great Zimbabwe stands tall with granite stone structures dating back to the 11th century.
Morning and evening game drives along the floodplains and woodland take you into the heart of Mana Pools and its wonderful diversity of habitats and broad range of wildlife.
Explore the banks of the Zambezi on foot - take a walk in the wild and encounter wild animals up close with and experienced and highly-trained field guide. Mana Pools is famous for its on-foot encounters with elephants, wild dogs and lions.
A canoe trip is always an exciting opportunity to get up close to some of Africa's wild animals while slowly cruising down the mighty Zambezi. Elephants, hippos and crocodiles are common sightings.
The Zambezi River is well-known for some of the best tiger fishing spots in Africa. The slow flow of the Zambezi allows for great catch-and-release tiger fishing in the early morning or afternoon.
