Zimbabwe safari

Victoria Falls, Hwange & Mana Pools

A Zimbabwe safari usually takes in the country’s three most popular destinations – Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park, and Mana Pools National Park. The first two are only a couple of hour’s drive from each other but we’d recommend flying into Mana Pools and Zimbabwe’s other safari destinations.

Victoria Falls delivers the thrills and spills of a Zimbabwe safari: you can enjoy white-water rafting, bungee jumping or go walking with lions. There’s also elephant-back game viewing at Victoria Falls but it’s at Hwange and Mana Pools that you’ll have the best wildlife sightings; the former park is home to some of Africa’s biggest elephant numbers as well as big cats and wild dogs; the latter is famous for its canoe safaris and boating trips, bringing the wildlife of the Zambezi River to you while in the care of expert guides.

It’s also easy to combine a Zimbabwe safari with adventures in neighbouring Botswana; the superb Chobe National Park is just an hour and a half’s drive from Victoria Falls. You can also include a South Africa holiday too – adding travel gems like Cape Town and the Kruger/Sabi Sands to your itinerary.
