Zimbabwe holidays 2023 & 2024

Bull elephant drinking at the Zambezi river

The sight of a fish eagle swooping over Lake Kariba’s smooth waters. The roar of a lion pride, out hunting at dusk. And, the musky smell of elephant marching past your vehicle in search of their next waterhole. A safari in Zimbabwe piques all the senses. With the help of some of the most highly trained guides in Africa, you have a good chance of seeing the Big Five, alongside an ensemble of other wildlife. Our safari specialists have visited the country extensively and can put together a trip that best suits your interests, such as the animals you most want to encounter.

Beyond a safari, a holiday to Zimbabwe gives you the opportunity to visit Victoria Falls and take in the thundering water by boat or helicopter or on foot. There’s also a rich history to uncover, from ancient rock art in Matobo National Park, to the Great Zimbabwe National Monument — a long-abandoned hilltop city.
