The energy of its rivers, its dramatic landscapes and its colonial splendour…Zimbabwe is a country of contrasts and a feast for the senses. Stand over the spectacular ‘greatest curtain of falling water in the world’, the Victoria Falls, and delight in the sound, spray, mist and rainbows that envelop you before enjoying the cultural attractions of the town of Victoria Falls.

The mighty Zambezi is the fourth-longest river in Africa and remains known for its superb sunsets and abundant wildlife sightings. Don’t be alarmed by the incessant grunt of hippos as you camp in style along the banks of the river, while you drink in the sight of the Zambian mountains across from you.

We also recommend trips to places like the biggest national park in the country, Hwange National Park, which has amazing Big Five viewing, as well as visiting the wild and beautiful Mana Pools.
