There is a singular beauty about Zimbabwe; it is a land-locked country blessed with fertile soils, mineral wealth and wonderful scenery.
Two major rivers form its northern and southern boundaries: the great Zambezi River cuts along its northern frontier, while the languid Limpopo forms the southern border with South Africa. In between, the country has a variety of habitats, from the granite hills of the Matopos to the majestic mountains, lush forests and beautiful rivers of the Eastern Highlands. As such, there is much to attract the traveler who wishes to learn more about Zimbabwe, from wildlife viewing and adrenalin adventures to encountering the history of the Zimbabwean people going back thousands of years.

The Zambezi has an exceptional variety of spectacular scenery as well as one of the world’s natural wonders: the Victoria Falls, which is included on our Zimbabwe safari tour. Then National Parks along the Zambezi are legendary, offering superb wildlife viewing.

Along the Botswana border the easternmost tongues of the Kalahari sands creep into the country and mix with the teak forests of the interior, so that desert-adapted animals share the same habitat with woodland species. Hwange National Park is home to some of southern Africa’s last great elephant, buffalo and sable herds. This area also offers Zimbabwe’s best summer game viewing.
