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.
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.
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.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful.
