A Zimbabwe safari has far more to offer beyond the excitement of the Victoria Falls: superb wildlife sanctuaries, mysterious mountain retreats, open plains and lush floodplains...
For many visitors it would be inconceivable to visit Africa without experiencing the Victoria Falls. This vast curtain of surging water plunges into the Zambezi gorge below, and is a remarkable sight. Yet a safari in Zimbabwe has far more to offer than just the Victoria Falls. Between the two great rivers of the Zambezi and the Limpopo lies superb wildlife sanctuaries, ruins of ancient civilizations, and mysterious mountain refuges. Plus scenic landscapes and the watery paradises of Lake Kariba & Mana Pools. All demonstrate the variety and charm of Zimbabwe.
In recent years this beautiful, but troubled country, has experienced much political instability, hardship and poverty. However this is now a good time to enjoy a Zimbabwe safari. Visitor numbers are low, the safari lodges have reinvested and refurbished and are offering great value for money. Furthermore vital tourism revenue ensures that Zimbabwe’s wildlife continues to be protected.
