Matobo Hills

This 6-night rhino tracking safari in Zimbabwe starts off at the scenic and historic Matobos. The park enjoys World Heritage status because of its valuable collection of African rock art; at least 3000 rock art sites documenting human history from the Early Stone Age.

The unique granite hills and gravity-defying balancing rocks, for which the park is known form the backdrop to your rhino walking safari where you will track rhinos and other game on foot.

The park is an Intensive Protection Zone for endangered black and white rhinos, roaming free in large numbers. Feel an unrivalled sense of awe when you encounter these magnificent beasts for the first time in their natural habitat.

The Matopos offers one of the best experiences for rhino tracking in Zimbabwe.

Hwange National Park

Continue the search for the rest of the Big Five on this Zimbabwe safari package while exploring the animal-rich Hwange, one of the most untouched wilderness areas in Zimbabwe.

The diverse Hwange National Park wildlife promises exceptional game viewing and Elephant’s Eye Tented Camp is perfectly positioned for the best game viewing in Hwange.

Explore the park by game vehicle or on foot with an expert guide to track great herds of big game and the predators that follow them. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the celebrated Painted Dog Conservation centre.

Victoria Falls

Our Zimbabwe rhino tracking safari ends in Victoria Falls where the famous landmark will inspire awe and a new respect for nature.
