Overview of the suggested Zimbabwe safari lodges and activities:
We strongly believe that any trip to Southern Africa should incorporate a visit to see Victoria Falls. Not only are The Falls themselves incredibly impressive, but visitors to this area can enjoy an excellent array of activities. White water rafting here is the wildest in the world, with bungee jumping, canoeing, zip wiring, and gorge swinging not too far behind! Seasoned daredevils will relish a swim in the aptly named Devil’s Pool, the pool right at the top of the Falls – absolutely awesome! Guests looking to take it slower can enjoy river cruises, shopping expeditions to Victoria Falls Town, and excursions to the local villages to get to know the people for whom this region is home.
A 4-hour drive or short flight from Victoria Falls gets you to Hwange National Park, which is one of the country’s foremost game-viewing parks. The elephant viewing is ridiculously good, and it is hard to beat spending time in one of the park’s photographic hides watching these incredible animals up close. Hwange is also known for its quality of guiding and amazing walking safaris. This allows you to get to know more of nature’s smaller beasts and learn a different side of the bush. Overall, this is a great combination of experiences to give you a real feel for Southern Africa.
