Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s most famous attractions are Victoria Falls – more than a mile wide, the water drops 325 feet creating clouds of spray that can be seen from many miles away, as well as its wild and active safaris in iconic parks such as Mana Pools, Malilangwe, Hwange and Matusadona.

It is in the wilder regions of Zimbabwe that we concentrate our safari operations. The Zambezi is a mighty river offering an exceptional variety of wonderful scenery and water activities, coupled with superb national parks that harbour immense herds of wildlife and offer great game viewing, as well as one of the world’s natural wonders — Victoria Falls.

Mana Pools National Park is located along the Zambezi River on the low-lying floodplains of Africa's Great Rift Valley and offers extraordinary game viewing combined with remarkable scenery with the mountains of the Rift Valley forming a picturesque backdrop.

Adjacent to the Botswana border is Hwange National Park, home to some of southern Africa's last great elephant, buffalo and sable antelope herds. The Makalolo concession within Hwange National Park is a truly wild area where animals continue to use their ancient migratory routes.

Last but not least, in Zimbabwe's southeast, is Pamushana in Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve – a remote, undiscovered area which offers spectacular game viewing.

Each one of the camps in our Zimbabwe portfolio is small, exclusive and situated in the very finest wildlife locations in the country, offering a superb and unforgettable experience.

2017 was a historic year for Zimbabwe when peaceful protests encouraged former dictator Robert Mugabe to step down after 37 years in power. Tourism is currently going through a long overdue renaissance and Zimbabwe's elephants and other wildlife have benefited immensely from the dramatic increase in visitors.
