Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park, Matopos & Mana Pools

Going on a safari in Zimbabwe offers a diverse and rewarding experience, with a combination of national parks, iconic landmarks, and cultural encounters

Hwange National Park

Hwange National Park is one of Africa’s premier wildlife destinations, renowned for its vast herds of elephants. The park is home to a wide range of wildlife, including lions, leopards, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, and numerous antelope species. It’s also a birdwatcher’s paradise, with over 400 recorded bird species. Hwange offers both game drives and guided walking safaris. Game drives allow you to explore the park’s diverse landscapes and encounter wildlife, while walking safaris offer a more intimate and immersive experience, led by experienced guides who share their knowledge of the flora and fauna. 

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of the world’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders, known as “The Smoke That Thunders.” It’s the largest curtain of falling water globally, spanning over a kilometer in width and plunging over 100 meters into the Zambezi Gorge. The sheer power and beauty of the falls are mesmerizing. Besides viewing the falls themselves, there are various activities to enjoy in the area. 

Mana Pools

Located in northern Zimbabwe, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, Mana Pools National Park is wild and provides a true ‘out of Africa’ experience. The remote location of the park and the protection it enjoys as one of the Zimbabwe UNESCO World Heritage Sites means that it is largely untouched by human development.

Matobo National Park

 Matobo National Park is known for its stunning granite rock formations, balancing boulders, and unique landscapes. The park is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including endangered black and white rhinos, leopards, zebras, giraffes, and a wide variety of bird species. Matobo is also a UNESCO World Heritage site and holds great historical and cultural significance. The park is famous for its ancient rock art sites, showcasing the spiritual and cultural beliefs of the San (Bushman) people who inhabited the area thousands of years ago. 

There are various accommodation options available near Hwange, Victoria Falls, Mana Pools and Matobo. Our range from luxury eco-lodges lodges and tented camps allows for easy access to wildlife and nature. The dry season (May to October) is the prime time for wildlife viewing in Hwange and Matobo, as animals congregate around water sources. Victoria Falls is most spectacular during the wet season (November to April), when the water flow is at its highest, but visibility may be reduced due to mist.
