Wild, WOnderful and Undiscovered

Vast Vistas and unique encounters

Zimbabwe is a unique and exciting safari destination; home to the famous Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall on the continent. The mighty Zambezi River and its tributaries form the fourth largest river basin of the continent. There are many good reasons why a safari in Zimbabwe is wonderful experience; it stands out as one of the most affordable safari destinations in Africa and has some of Africa’s most exclusive wildlife areas and National Parks which remain unspoiled and remote.

Tragic events here have made media headlines around the world, but right now the country is as safe and unspoiled to visit as it was in the 80′s. Travelers can expect to have an up-close wildlife experience without hordes of tourists. Zimbabwe safaris remain personal, intimate, wild and unscathed. There are a range of accommodation options, from 5 star luxury lodges to basic mobile tented camps.

A safari especially for people who like to walk! One of the best ways to escape the vehicle view of the bush is to seek adventure by canoe and on foot. Terrific game walks in three national parks: Matusadona, Mana Pools, and Hwange. Charter flights replace drives between parks with a great mix of exclusive luxury lodges and private camps.
