When To Visit Zimbabwe:
left arrow image right arrow image

Zimbabwe is incredibly hospitable and welcoming, with some of the friendliest people you are likely to meet on your travels. As with most African countries it has had a somewhat beleaguered past, but today it is very much back on everyone’s radar as a premium safari destination.

Victoria Falls, the national parks of Hwange, Mana Pools, Lake Kariba and Matusadona, Gonarezhou, and finally Matobo Hills, make up the bulk of the regions where the majority of people would wish to vacation. Excitingly, they are all very different from each other in terms of their topography and biodiversity – this means that it is possible to enjoy long Zimbabwe vacations!

Walking safaris here encapsulate all that is great about safari in general. Certainly they are the focus of most safari camps, though of course the traditional vehicle, boat and canoe safaris are all available at every safari camp or lodge.

The ease with which you are able to travel between the national parks also makes Zimbabwe an attractive vacation destination. We recommend a fly-in safari between each park, basing yourself at one or two camps over the duration of your stay in each region.

It will not be long before Zimbabwe gets back to the heady heights of its tourism figures of the early to late 1990s, so for now it is a pretty exclusive safari experience with small camps and lodges, little traffic, sensational game viewing and great guiding to match!
