While Zimbabwe is known to be home to some of Africa’s healthiest elephant herd populations, it is also where you can encounter some of the continent’s friendliest people. For visitors, safaris to Zimbabwe also offer the opportunity for responsible tourism too, such as providing locals with much needed jobs and affording protection and conservation for its animals.


It is Zimbabwe’s boundless game territories, illustrious guiding and species variety that are responsible for rekindling its appeal to those looking for that totally wild and untouched Big Five Safari without the crowds.

The amazing Victoria Falls rank as one of the most spectacular sites in all of Africa. As the mighty Zambezi River crashes over sheer cliffs onto the rocks below it sprays a cloud of water high into the air that has earned it the local name of Mosi-oa-Tunya ( ‘the smoke that thunders’). The mighty Victoria Falls rank as one of the most outstanding sites in all of Africa as well as being a Natural Wonder of the World.

Bordered by the Zambezi River to the north and the Limpopo River to the south, Zimbabwe’s landscapes are abounding and rich in undisturbed wildlife to be found in the teak forests and sandveld of the huge Hwange National Park, to the remote and pristine Mana Pools in Lower Zambezi Valley and the exclusive Malilangwe Reserve.


  • The Elephant Camp has been rated one of the best luxury lodges in Zimbabwe. The main area boasts a beautiful sunken fire pit and swimming pool while the suites are equipped with a private viewing deck, plunge pool and outdoor shower. The Elephant Camp, Victoria Falls, promises an intimate safari experience within the wilderness.

  • The Wild Horizons Elephant Sanctuary and Orphanage offer any travelers an authentic and positive elephant encounter. “Meet the Elephant” will give guests the opportunity to unobtrusively interact with some of the biggest personalities in  Africa.

  • Awesome Batoka Gorge is in a pristine environment overflowing with raw natural beauty and power. Or go a little off the rails with the Flying Fox, the gorge swing or white water rafting. The Victoria Falls Canopy Tour offers a network of slides, trails and rope bridge walkways within the canopy of the hardwood forest of the Zambezi gorges. All of this will get your heart beating a lot faster!

  • Upstream of the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River, lies Old Drift Lodge within the Park. The lodge boasts luxury accommodations overlooking the pristine Zambezi River and offers sleeping under the stars. Old Drift Lodge is nestled within a wild paradise frequented by elephant, buffalo, herds of sable, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala. Old Drift Lodge is steeped in history and harnesses the historical aura of the land it occupies. You cannot beat sunrises drifting on the river watching nature awake in golden hues. The focus of a safari is immersing yourself out in the bush, here you are truly deep in the wild.

  • Move on to the Hwange National Park the country's most famous big game reserve and home to an abundant population of wildlife. Located a few hours drive from Victoria Falls, Hwange is home to a dense concentration of elephant and is an excellent destination for Africa´s big predators. Lion, leopard and cheetah are regularly seen. Then there are the rarer animals: Hwange is an important breeding ground for endangered African wild dog, black rhino and the beautiful roan and sable antelopes. The breadth of wildlife species is astounding. Over 100 species of mammals reside here, whilst almost 400 species of birds decorate the skies. Perhaps most exciting is the 40,000-strong population of tusker elephants, whose presence is world-renowned and a joy to watch day after day.

  • Somalisa Acacia​ is the perfect lodge​ experience for safari-goers. ​Somalisa ​is tucked away beneath the dappled shade of an Acacia grove. A place where meeting an elephant in your backyard is not at all a fanciful notion. Especially if your backyard happens to be the largest natural reserve in Zimbabwe. You will never want to leave.

“Africa – You can see a sunset and believe you have witnessed the Hand of God. You watch the slope lope of a lioness and forget to breathe. You marvel at the tripod of a giraffe bent to water. In Africa, there are iridescent blues on the wings of birds that you do not see anywhere else in nature. In Africa, in the midday heat, you can see blisters in the atmosphere. When you are in Africa, you feel primordial, rocked in the cradle of the world.” * Jodi Picoult
