Zimbabwe is a truly diverse country, home to Victoria Falls, an ever-changing landscape, and excellent National Parks. Providing a rich variety of animal, plant, and bird life, this is a great all-round holiday destination. Zimbabwe’s walking guides undergo vigorous training, resulting in seemingly endless knowledge! Qualifying as a guide here also involves a very high awareness of safety – this allows the guides to walk wherever they want to, bringing an unprecedented degree of flexibility and spontaneity to your safari. Over the years guides have formed special relationships with the animals, so they can get extremely close, especially to several of the bull elephants! Hwange National Park, the biggest of its kind in Zimbabwe, boasts an especially large concentration of the grey guys.
Mana Pools, one of Africa’s most spectacular parks, has amazingly diverse game viewing and good concentrations of wild dog, while Lake Kariba and Matusadona combine to provide a superb contrasting landscape! Our favourite properties offering excellent walking safaris are Vundu Camp, The Hide Safari Camp, and Stretch Ferreira Safaris Tented Camp.
