A unique destination full of untapped potential, Zimbabwe isn’t always the first country on a person’s travel list, but as soon as you unearth all it has to offer you’ll be rearranging yours. Safe with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, Zimbabwe is home to top of the range guides, abundant wildlife, fabulous lodges and a wide variety of exciting adventures – the perfect ingredients for a top class safari.
Since 2010 Zimbabwe’s tourist numbers have continued to grow, visitors welcomed with open arms in a nation where safety is an important priority. New lodges are opening up across the country and regional political collaboration means that visitors to Zimbabwe or Zambia can now use a univisa, as well as benefit from the recent relaxation of some visa requirements.
The Zimbabwean natural landscape is also a sight like no other, a vibrant environment bordered to the north by the mighty Zambezi River and to the south by the Limpopo River. In between lies a wide variety of kopjes (granite outcrops), impressive national parks, mountains, forests and wide-open savannah. Needless to say, there’s a huge variety of things to see and do in the great outdoors.
It’s a country that truly boasts something for everyone. Adrenaline junkies can visit the action-packed Victoria Falls, while wildlife enthusiasts enjoy game drives and walking safaris in Hwange Park. There’s also the fabulous Mana Pools canoeing safaris, kopjes and rock art in Matobo Hills National Park and wetlands in Gona-re-Zhou. In Zimbabwe, ‘boredom’ isn’t a word we use often!
