Zimbabwe Safari Tours
Landlocked Zimbabwe is a classic safari destination and with mighty Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park and an impressive population of elephant, buffalo, zebras and giraffe, it’s no wonder why.
The area around Victoria Falls has plenty to offer too, with activities to entertain all ages and interests, from horseback rides and elephant safaris, to walking with lions, bungee jumping and rafting on the Zambezi River.
Our overland camping, lodge accommodated and private safaris in Zimbabwe follow set itineraries and we can also create a tailor made holiday to Zimbabwe to your exact requirements too.
Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, translated as The Smoke That Thunders, mighty Victoria Falls has been named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is claimed to be the largest single sheet of failing water in the world. Located between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Zambezi River widens to 1.7 kilometres and then the full width of the river plunges 108 metres down into the Zambezi Gorge, sending clouds of spray up to 500 metres in the air, helping to sustain the surrounding lush rainforest.
Our overland safaris to Zimbabwe are multi-country itineraries, combining the highlights of many of Africa's top destinations. With lots of overland safaris that start or finish in Victoria Falls, you can visit the famous waterfalls and enjoy adrenaline activities galore. Other highlights of our Zimbabwe overland safaris include wildlife rich Hwange National Park and Gweru Antelope Park. You'll travel aboard our overland trucks that seat 28 - 30 travellers and carry all the equipment necessary for camping and cooking on the trip. On our camping safaris, group participation is crucial and you’ll assist with camp chores, preparation of meals and erecting & dismantling your tent. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, possess relative fitness, a relaxed attitude, and are not averse to the odd hiccup, then overlanding is for you.
A sunset cruise on the Zambezi
Any number of activities can be found in and around Victoria Falls and there are endless ways to experience the mighty Zambezi River too. Whatever your interest, be it white water rafting, jet boating, canoeing or a sunset cruise, the Zambezi has it all. For a spectacular bird’s eye view opt to take a microlight flight over the falls, or if you are feeling brave there are five different high wire activities, from gorge wings to the famous bungee jump from Victoria Falls Bridge.
