Why we love Zimbabwe
The latest insight from our time spent exploring Zimbabwe.
Heart of Southern Africa
Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in the heart of Southern Africa defined by its impressive national parks and dramatic landscapes. A safari here feels like nature in the raw and it’s easy to see why Zimbabwe lays claim to being one of the African continent’s most exciting destinations.
Dramatic Scenery & Incredible Wildlife
From the Kalahari sands of Hwange to one of the magnificent seven natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe is a land of dramatic contrasts, offering a sense of scale and wilderness that easily matches that of its more visited neighbours. Full of game-rich destinations, fascinating cultural history and some of Africa’s most beautiful landscapes, including five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it is easy to see why Zimbabwe always was Southern Africa’s premier tourism destination for many years.
The Mighty Zambezi River
While the Victoria Falls may be its crowning glory, the mighty Zambezi River, which forms the border with Zambia, offers safari destinations with a difference such as the beautiful and untouched Mana Pools along the banks of the Lower Zambezi, or Matusadona National Park on the shore of man-made Lake Kariba.
Wonder of the World
Set on the Zambezi at the site of one of Earth’s seven natural wonders, Victoria Falls has a strong claim to become the hub of Southern African safari. Sharing borders with Zambia, Botswana and Namibia entering Southern Africa via Victoria Falls makes a lot of sense for visitors to these premier tourism destinations.

Hwange National Park
Hwange has more species than any other national park in Zimbabwe. It is famous for its elephants in which there are many.
The Victoria Falls
The crashing deluge of the mighty Zambezi as it spectacularly plunges over the Victoria Falls is one of Africa’s most awe-inspiring and iconic sights. We think that the Falls are best seen from the Zimbabwean side and when you’re standing close to the world’s greatest mass of falling water and enjoying the sight of double rainbows, you won’t feel short-changed. The clearest views are from July to March when the spray isn’t as thick and you can meander through stunning rainforest on to 16 viewpoints along the gorge-edge, including one above the thundering Devil’s Cataract (named by missionaries who witnessed tribes sacrificing beasts to the rainbow god). Known by its African name, Mosi-ay-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), the Falls are now linked by dozens of daily flights and holds a reputation for being the adrenaline centre of Africa with bungee jumping, white water rafting and helicopter flights that drop right into the gorge.
