In the last years Zimbabwe has nearly been forgotten as travel destination and has now become an insiders' tip for safari and wildlife lovers. Whilst in other African countries famous parks are overcrowded in the main season - in the parks of Zimbabwe you will be off the beaten track.


Harare

Zimbabwe's captital Harare is the country's commercial and industrial centre and also the usual starting point for most visits. It's a clean and sophisticated city, characterised by flowering trees, colourful parks and contemporary architecture. Local sights also include various museums, art galleries and craft markets. Due to its pleasant climate, Harare is known as the "sunshine city".

Gweru - Antelope Park

Antelope Park is Zimbabwe’s Premier Private Wildlife Park and attracts guests from all over the world. Its range of accommodation and quality facilities make it the perfect destination for holiday makers,



Matobo National park

Located close to Bulawayo, Matobo National Park is noted for its spectacular granite rock formations and its wealth of ancient rock paintings. Cecil Rhodes tomb can be visited at the "View of the World". The Nswatugi and Pomongwe caves are also worth visiting.

Hwange

Hwange is Zimbabwe’s largest national park at 15,000 km², and a favorite safari destination for many experienced bush lovers. Game-viewing can be extremely rewarding, especially during the dry winter months from May to October.

The park does feature the Big Five (although rhino are seldom seen) and very large herds of buffalo and elephants.

Lions are frequently seen, and visitors also enjoy regular sightings of cheetah, wild dog, roan and sable antelope. Night drives can be very rewarding, with good sightings of aardvark, aardwolf and pangolin.



Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River is one of Africa’s most iconic destinations and deservedly on many bucket lists. That awe-inspiring vertical drop of 108m into the chasm below, as well as the mist spray curtain during full flood that can be seen and heard from afar (its local name is ‘Mosi-oa- Tunya’, which means ‘the smoke that thunders’), make for a truly unforgettable experience. Just wandering the streets of this quaint town is a special experience as you negotiate for souvenirs, dodge warthogs (and elephants!), hang out with locals and sample a range of restaurants and bars.

 

Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. It’s also an adventure centre of note.



Kariba

Zimbabwe's captital Harare is the country's commercial and industrial centre and also the usual starting point for most visits. It's a clean and sophisticated city, characterised by flowering trees, colourful parks and contemporary architecture. Local sights also include various museums, art galleries and craft markets. Due to its pleasant climate, Harare is known as the "sunshine city".

Gonarenzou

"Gonarezhou" meaning "Place of many Elephants" is an extremely scenic Park full of rugged and beautiful landscapes. Three major rivers - The Save, Runde and Mwenezi - cut their courses through the Park, forming pools and natural oases from which hundreds of species of birds, wildlife and fish gather to feed and drink. Gonarezhou is famous for its elephants, and many of the largest-tusked elephants in the region maybe found within the Park.



Mana Pools

Mana Pools National Park is one of Zimbabwe's most beautiful national parks, occupying more than 2.000 sq km of forest along the banks of the Zambzi River. Four of the big five are present. Game viewing on foot is allowed and the birdlife along the river is prolific. The park is also a great spot for fishing.
