Zimbabwe
Safaris & Tours

The north of Zimbabwe falls into an action packed safari circuit including Victoria Falls, Mana Pools, Botswana’s Okavango Delta and Zambia’s Lower Zambezi. Despite its turbulent political history, Zimbabwe remains an unbelievable natural destination offering iconic photographic opportunities, and we know exactly the right places to go to make it happen.

Raw and remote

There is no place like Zimbabwe and it is the least visited of the southern African safari destinations, which is part of its magic. Less crowds mean more exclusive sightings and better opportunities for photography.

Speaking of photography, some of the best photographic hides are located in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, offering secretive vantage points over waterholes where elephants and lions vie for territory. The sometimes devastating drought seasons mean that these lions prides attempt to prey on elephants, making for interactions sought after by documentary filmmakers the world over.

Two of Zimbabwe’s top destinations (Mana Pools and Lake Kariba) are water-orientated and offer not only exceptional wildlife viewing, but bring the country into elite birding status with over 600 species to be spotted at various times of year.

Walking safaris and encountering wild animals on foot are also a bit part of Zimbabwe’s safari offering, especially in Mana Pools where you could have the chance of photographing wild dogs, elephants, or lions from the ground.

Winter Wonder 

Overall, Zimbabwe is a winter destination. May to September is considered the dry season, so as drought sweeps across the country, the northern wildlife territories along the Zambezi River become dense as herds congregate around the water. Sightings from both land and water are spectacular along the water’s edge and in the ana tree forests of Mana Pools.

 

Hwange National Park has pumped waterholes that keep wildlife watered during the dry season and is best visited between July and October when some tense, yet spectacular animal showdowns take place.

 

Victoria Falls is the only destination that becomes overcrowded in Zimbabwe as people gather to marvel at the falls. The best time to go is during the dry season when the water is low to mid-level and not obscured by the rising mist.
