Zimbabwe is, in our opinion, the most up and coming safari destination in Africa, this is the time to explore this incredible country for any keen safari enthusiast. Sharing many similarities with its neighbour Zambia in its mainstream safari areas there are also some incredible off the beaten track experiences for those seeking remote wilderness areas with few other people.
The country has suffered many setbacks but this means that the tourism industry, which was once one of the busiest in Africa, has had years of going unnoticed, this is no longer the case and the guiding, hospitality and fantastic wildlife density is grabbing the attention of both first timers and safari veterans.
As with Zambia, Zimbabwe is known for incredible professional guiding and has some of the most rigorous examinations which lead to this being one of the best places on the continent to experience a walking safari with incredibly knowledgable guides.
Zimbabwe’s most iconic safari destinations are Mana Pools and Hwange which are now home to a range of excellent camps from the rustic and authentic traditional tented experience through to more luxurious options. Combine these areas with Victoria Falls or more remote safari areas.
Zimbabwe’s tourism is growing but now is the time to come, the country still offers incredible value for money, meaning that you can get a world class safari in a great camp with amazing guiding for considerably less than a comparable trip in Botswana or Zambia.
