Zimbabwe Safaris and Tours

Zimbabwe’s wonderful national parks offer some of the most spectacular gameviewing in Africa.

Despite the difficulties the country has experienced in recent years, our ground operators and all recently returning clients report that the wildlife is flourishing and the gameviewing still magnificent. Of course, no visit to Zimbabwe is complete without the majestic Victoria Falls.

The lodges we use in Zimbabwe operate successfully in areas far from any political strife and we have great confidence in recommending them.

Apart from traditional gameviewing by 4WD, Zimbabwe is also renowned for walking safaris and for canoeing safaris along the Zambezi River. Be sure to leave time to see the impressive Victoria Falls.

Zimbabwe Overview

Why Zimbabwe: Zimbabwe offers amazing wildlife experiences, from the safari parks and reserves along the mighty Zambezi River and Lake Kariba to the vast wilderness of Hwange National Park. The jewel in the country’s crown is the spectacular Victoria Falls. The country has a long history and the ancient stone city of Great Zimbabwe gave the country its name.

Best time to go: The dry season (May-Oct) is the best time for gameviewing as the bush dries out and game congregates at the precious remaining waterholes. Late in the dry season, there will be much less water going over the Victoria Falls, whilst at the height of summer there will be a lot of spray and it may be more difficult to see the falls.

Culture: Zimbabweans are known for their rich culture, dance and music traditions. They are also recognised for their fine art and craft including basketware, pottery and the famous Shona stone sculptures. The two main tribes are the Shona and the Matabele.

Climate: Moderate climate (22°-29°C) though hotter in the Zambezi Valley and around the Victoria Falls where temperatures can reach 40°C. The dry season is from May-Oct when almost no rain falls and the days are warm and sunny. Nights can be very cold with sub-zero temperatures from Jun-Aug. Oct is the hottest month. Rain falls regularly in the summer (Nov-Mar/Apr) turning the bush lush and green.

Combine With: Zambia, Botswana or South Africa. Chobe National Park in Botswana is just across the border and can be easily reached by road from Victoria Falls. Zambia and the town of Livingstone is across the river from Victoria Falls.

Getting There: Fly from Johannesburg to Victoria Falls. Alternatively you can easily take a road transfer from Livingstone in Zambia or from Botswana. For an Edwardian-style, luxury rail experience travel by Rovos Rail from Pretoria in South Africa to Victoria Falls.
