Zimbabwe

Zimbabweans themselves are known for their friendliness and welcoming hospitality
 

 Zimbabwe is definitely back on the map as a travel destination and although there are still issues with the leadership of the country, the national parks, the wilderness regions and the hospitality industry in general is well managed. Safari guides for example go through a very rigorous training program me and as a result Zimbabwe boasts some of the best, most passionate guides in the region. The Zimbabweans themselves are known for their friendliness and welcoming hospitality. 

Zimbabwe lies to the north of South Africa and is strongly influenced by two major rivers – the mighty Zambezi River which runs along its northern frontier, forming the border with Zambia and the Limpopo River forming the border with South Africa. The main regions we send visitors to are Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park and Mana Pools.

The new International Airport at Victoria Falls now offers access to some of the most amazing safari experiences in Africa. The best view of the famous Victoria Falls is from the Zimbabwean side as it faces the majority of the towering basalt curtain of water which is the biggest waterfall in the world in terms of its combined height and width. The falls stretch for a staggering 1,7km! The Town of Victoria Falls is a short walk away from the viewing points which allows visitors to explore the falls at their leisure. Bungee jumping, river rafting and elephant back safaris are some of the unforgettable adventures the area has to offer. 

The vast Hwange National Park is the largest park in Zimbabwe and contains all of the countries specially protected species. The expansive savannah and Mopane woodlands boast huge herds of plains game which are followed by large predators such as leopard, spotted hyena and cheetah. The park is famous for having one of the largest elephant populations in the world and the rare brown hyena and African wild dog have healthy populations in the park.
