What We Love
- Zambia’s larger neighbor, Zimbabwe (which is roughly the size of California) is home to some of the largest wildlife populations in Africa. The country has carefully conserved and managed its wildlife populations and kept tourist developments at a modest level, which means a safari in Zimbabwe will be a peaceful experience.
- “The Smoke that Thunders” (a.k.a. Victoria Falls, named after Queen Victoria, which was what Dr. Livingston presumed to name it) creates the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
- There are a variety of lodging options, from beautifully situated small camps to lodges and private mobile camps.
Things To See & Do
- Take a walking safari with a professional armed guard. Some of the best African guides have been trained in Zimbabwe, and they will lead you on a thrilling (yet safe) journey into the bush.
- Take a helicopter over Victoria Falls.
- Visit one of several spectacular parks, such as Matusadona, Hwange, and the famous Mana Pools National Park, which was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988.
We recommend combining Zimbabwe with Zambia, Botswana, or South Africa.
