SAFARIS & ACCOMMODATION

Why

Zimbabwe is an incredible destination that offers gorgeous landscapes, diverse wildlife and a wide range of adventure activities. It is the one place where you can go white water rafting before exploring an untouched wilderness that teems with wildlife. The top attraction in Zimbabwe is the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls which is also recognized as one of the “Seven Wonders Of The World”. With never-ending rainbows and water plundering down a 108-meter drop, the Victoria Falls is a sight to behold.

Two pristine game reserves flank the Victoria Falls - Mana Pools in northern Zimbabwe is renowned for its large populations of elephants, hippos and Nile crocodiles, whilst Hwange in western Zimbabwe is home to large elephant herds, lions and African wild dogs. Visitors can look forward to exciting big five game drives, enlightening bush walks, gorgeous sunsets, fishing expeditions, and incredible bird watching.

When

With mild temperatures, virtually no rain and a low malaria risk, the dry May to October winter season is generally seen as the best time to visit Zimbabwe for a safari, although it is important to note that September and October are extremely hot and dry months.

The best time to travel to Victoria Falls, on the other hand, is at the end of the summer rainy season when the falls are in full flood with April and May offering the most dramatic views.

August to December is the low water season and is regarded as the best time to go white-water rafting in Victoria Falls - the volume and speed of the water is reduced and the rapids are more exposed.

Where

Zimbabwe is a country known for its dramatic landscapes and diverse wildlife and is the perfect destination for travelers looking for a true adventure. The top attraction is the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls which is located within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Internationally recognised as one of the “Seven Wonders Of The World”, Victoria Falls is a spectacular sight with never-ending rainbows and the greatest falling curtain of water. The sheer force of the Falls sounds like thunder and the spray of water looks like smoke, ringing true to its name “The Smoke that Thunders”.  

Zimbabwe is home to two game reserves that offer phenomenal safari experiences.

Mana Pools is in the far north of Zimbabwe and is known for its large populations of elephants, hippos and Nile crocodiles that congregate around the pools which hold water all year round.  Hwange is in west Zimbabwe and its sprawling grasslands and mopane woods are home to large elephant herds, lions and African wild dogs.

Explore Lake Kariba, which is the world's largest man-made lake offering spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing, boating opportunities, and various water sport

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
