Zimbabwe is an amazing holiday destination offering attractions for everyone from safaris to adventure including Victoria Falls, Hwange Nat. Park, Mana Pools etc.
Despite the bad press in the past, Zimbabwe is safe and able to offer you the most unforgettable holiday (and it is much cheaper than Zambia). The country is now booming especially the Vic Falls and Hwange areas and we can definitely recommend it for your Southern Africa safari package.
The climate is warm without being oppressive, with a daily sunshine average of seven hours all year round. Equally warm are the Zimbabwean people, renowned for their friendliness and hospitality.
Zimbabwe is bordered by Zambia in the northwest, Mozambique from north to southeast, South Africa in the south and Botswana in the west. It is a small landlocked country with exceptional natural beauty. Due to it's location, it is ideal to add on to any itineraries in these countries.
English is the official language with other widely spoken languages being Chishona & Sindebele. Other languages include Sotho, Venda, Tonga & Kalanga.
The capital, Harare (formerly Salisbury) is often called 'Sunshine City' and is characterized by flowering trees, colorful parks and contemporary architecture (although seldom visited by tourists to Zimbabwe).
Attractions to Zimbabwe include the famous Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park (only 90-minute road transfer, a short light aircraft transfer or self-drive from Victoria Falls), Lake Kariba, Mana Pools, Great Zimbabwe Ruins etc. Together these can make a great Zimbabwe safari tour that we can combine with other offers making your itinerary more affordable.
The Great Zimbabwe Ruins (National Monument) is the largest complex of ruins in Africa south of the pyramids in Egypt. With walls of over 9m in height and 4metres thick, it is an incredible sight and worth the visit (see photo above).
