Explore Zimbabwe with Wilderness Safaris

Huge herds and rushing rivers

Zimbabwe is a landlocked country situated between two great rivers: the mighty Zambezi cuts along its northern frontier, forming the border with Zambia, while the languid Limpopo forms the southern border with South Africa. In between, the country has a variety of habitats, from the granite hills of the Matopos to the majestic mountains, lush forests and beautiful rivers of the Eastern Highlands. As such, there is much to attract the traveller, from wildlife viewing and adrenalin adventures to encountering the history of the Zimbabwean people going back thousands of years.

Things to look forward to in Zimbabwe:

  • Watching enormous herds of elephant gathering at Hwange’s numerous waterholes
  • Bungee jumping at the stupendous Victoria Falls
  • Cruising down the mighty Zambezi River by boat or, for the more adventurous, by canoe
  • Game driving through classic safari country in scenic and wildlife-rich National Parks
