Zimbabwe is a song which, once heard, is never forgotten; a mood to suit the needs of any soul, any time; a spell that binds all those who know her. Her voice brings forth many melodies.

A landlocked country in southern Africa, Zimbabwe derives its name from dzimba dzemabwe or “houses of stone” in Shona. Its use as the country’s name is in tribute to Great Zimbabwe, the site of the capital of the Munhumutapa Empire.

Zimbabwe is rich in geographic and topographic diversity and it boasts low-lying semi-desert in the northwest to lush highlands strewn with forests and lakes in the eastern part of the country.

Zimbabwean guides’ training has set a high standard for the safari industry. Zimbabwe safaris offer a true smorgasbord of activities: white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, hiking and game viewing by foot, open vehicle and boat.

Safari Ideas

Zimbabwe offers a large variety of eco-systems, one of the African continent’s finest and largest concentrations of wildlife, a perfect climate and a rich safari history. The best game viewing areas of Zimbabwe are in the country’s northern National Parks. Hwange, Matusadona and Mana Pools are legendary, as well as world-renowned Victoria Falls.

In the south of the country, Matopos is known as the wilderness of granite, and Gonarezhou National Park is building a reputation for its outstanding wildlife and spectacular topography.

With so many beautiful areas and dynamic seasons, Zimbabwe is a country that travelers find themselves returning to. From some of our favorite luxury camps to custom designed walking and canoe safaris, we’re always excited to show-off the best of Zimbabwe.
