Visit Zimbabwe for an African Journey of a Lifetime!
A Zimbabwe Safari Holiday has much to offer with two world heritage sites, the spectacular Victoria Falls and Mana Pools National Park and some excellent game reserves dotted around the country including the enormous Hwange National Park, Matusadona on Lake Kariba, Chizarira and Gonarezhou.
Zimbabwe lies in the heart of Southern Africa and is a vibrant country with friendly people, stunning scenery and excellent game reserves. Despite the well publicised political turmoil of recent years visitors will find Zimbabwe very welcoming and the game reserves and other attractions in excellent condition.
Zimbabwe lies between two rivers, the Zambezi River to the north and the Limpopo River to the south. In between is an inland plateau filled with kopjes (granite outcrops), beautiful national parks, rugged mountains and lush forests. Zimbabwe is a fairly compact country with a good road network so getting around is easy, charter and scheduled flights are also available between most places of interest to the tourist
In addition to game drives in the National Parks such as the Zambezi National Park and scenic sightseeing, Zimbabwe has a reputation as a place for outdoor adventure with the nearby Victoria Falls the adventure capital of Southern Africa. Activities here include guided walks, white water rafting, elephant back safaris, canoeing above the falls, bungee jumping and many others.
Other popular attractions are canoe safaris on the Lower Zambezi gliding slowly downstream between Mana Pools and the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia camping out overnight on islands, hiking in the Eastern Highlands and visiting the bushman rock art sites in the Matopos Hills.
A Zimbabwe Safari Holiday is a reasonably priced and very enjoyable experience with the most popular safari circuit visiting Hwange National Park, Victoria Falls, Mana Pools, Lake Kariba and Matusadona National park.
The best time to visit Zimbabwe is during the dry season months between April and October.
