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. 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.

Tour was excellent. Enjoyed the township tour but the food hall tour we could have skipped.

Gift is very knowledgeable welcoming and and excellent man.”  

Paula McNamara • Submitted 25 May 2017

Our tour guide, Makenzy, was really amazing.

Our cook, John, surprised us with a very good food every single day.

Our driver, Tom, was also amazing.

These three people really made our trip.”  

Pui Mei Hung • Submitted 29 Mar 2017

Hess was amazing. He was very organized and efficient. Very impressed by his people skills and his ability resolve issues and avoid any conflicts. I know that some of our group thought that he was not well organized or interactive enough. I learned that they were young and this was their first time traveling with a tour. We have traveled several times with Gate One, Roads Scholars, and Affordable Asia, so we have extensive experiences in which to make a comparison. Hess was highly organized, what they took as complacent, was his astute awareness as to when to back off and let us have alone time or chances to interact with each other. Everything we requested was accomplished. How he kept it all straight is beyond most people's abilities. One of the best guides we have ever had. ”

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.

As Zimbabwe's largest game reserve, Hwange National Park is the country's premier safari destination. The park encompasses 15,000 square kilometres of varied terrain from the arid desert shrub bordering the Kalahari to the vegetation-rich woodlands in the north. With this diversity of geography comes an assortment of wildlife with the Big 5 found here as well as cheetah, hippo and giraffe.
