A World of Discovery

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.

Victoria Falls
The Smoke that Thunders

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.

Zimbabwe Overland Safaris

Overland Budget Accommodation Upgrade Available

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.

I had the best trip with On the Go. Our guide Thembe, our driver Johnny and our cook Freddie were amazing and helped make the trip that it was.

The tour was great and covered a good portion of the countries visited! The camps were great and exceeded my expectations.

Highly recommend On the Go!”

Loved this tour. As a 58 year old traveling with a fairly young group it was a challenging but thoroughly enjoyable experience. Our driver Steve entertained us on guitar most nights which was an added bonus. Matt our guide was knowledgable and made the trip nice and relaxed. Would highly recommend this tour. ”

This tour was absolutely amazing. All of the crew were fantastic and I will miss them all. In particular Steve was a ball to have on the tour playing his guitar and singing around the campfire at night. Lorraine was always laughing and Matt made sure we were all ok everyday. Could not have asked for a better trip and this shows in how sad I was to leave. I would highly recommend this trip to all ages of people that have an open mind and love an adventure.”

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.
