Reasons to Visit Zimbabwe

  • History & Culture

    Great Zimbabwe, located southeast of the town of Masvingo is one of the best preserved stone cities in sub-Saharan Africa. Debate rages about when and why the buildings were constructed however it is thought that the first buildings here were errected around AD 1100.

    History & Culture
  • Victoria Falls

    The Victoria Falls is one of Africa's most iconic and awe-inspiring waterfalls prompting Livingstone's famous quotation: "...scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight". The Falls form the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia and can be viewed from either side although Zimbabwe would argue they have the better view.

  • Big Cats & Safari Wildlife

    Zimbabwe has some truly superb game viewing in its National Parks. The lifeblood of Hwange National Park is its series of pumped waterholes which attract wildlife from plains game to the predators. The park has healthy populations of lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, zebra, giraffe, hippo, elephant and more.

  • Canoe Safaris

    Zimbabwe's Mana Pools on the mighty Zambezi River is the place to experience a three day canoe safari, gentling paddling down the river, skirting hippo pods and spotting wildlife on the banks. If you want a shorter day or half-day canoe trip this can also be easily arranged on the Upper Zambezi while staying at the town of Victoria Falls.

  • Birdlife

    There are over 670 bird species in Zimbabwe ranging from the tiny Common Waxbills with their bright blue bellies to impressive raptors including the Martial and Black Eagle. Particularly good areas for bird spotting include Hwange National Park, Mana Pools and Lake Kariba.

    Birdlife
  • Walking Safaris

    The guiding standards in Zimbabwe are some of the highest in Africa and this makes it an excellent place to try a walking safari. Experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of the bush on foot is a completely different experience to being on a game vehicle, and a fascinating opportunity to see some of the smaller creatures, birdlife and fauna.
