OUR FEATURED ZIMBABWE DESTINATIONS
“The Smoke that Thunders”, accurately describes the rising shining spray and foaming waters that roar deafeningly as the Zambezi river hurls itself 103m down the falls. The falls have been given the status of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and when David Livingstone “discovered” the falls in 1855, he gave them the highest honor he could by naming them after his Queen.
Mana Pools, deep within the Zambezi Valley is one of the least commercial (but most famed amongst safari veterans) National Parks in Southern Africa. Mana is remote, breathtakingly beautiful and thriving with Big Game. The Zambezi River is flanked on either side by Natal mahogany, African ebony and wild fig forests. This is one of the best areas to view African Wild Dog.
HWANGE NATIONAL PARK
Hwange, Zimbabwe’s largest National Park, is a haven for wildlife and one of the most highly rated reserves in Southern Africa. The numerous waterholes attract game of great variety and in large numbers – especially in the winter months when animals gather around the waterholes to quench their thirst.
Malilangwe is a spectacular piece of Zimbabwe, boasting geological diversity, habitat variability and a wide variety of plant and animal species. Home to one of the highest concentrations of the endangered Black Rhino, the area is known for its magical sandstone outcrops, mopane forests, and majestic baobab trees.

WHEN TO VISIT ZIMBABWE
Zimbabwe is a year round travel destination. Game viewing is most productive in the dry season of June to October (but it does get very hot towards October). The Victoria Falls are at their best after the summer rains in April and May.
