Links and overviews to Zimbabwe's main parks :
Livingstone is the old capital of Zambia and the hive of activity in the area nowadays. With a cluster of larger hotels around the Falls themselves and stunning river lodges upstream the city is our destination of choice for travellers visiting Victoria Falls.
Hwange is Zimbabwe’s premier game viewing location. A huge park (15,000 sq. kms) with one of the greatest elephant populations in Africa.
Lake Kariba offers a unique opportunity in Africa due to its setting. The Lake provides both great game viewing by canoe as well as wonderful Tiger fishing, while the adjacent Matusadona National Park offers great game viewing on foot or by vehicle.
Mana Pools is a superb, though seasonal park, located on the Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi, opposite the Zambian Lower Zambezi National Park. It is closed from January to March each year because of the rains and it is famous as a walking park, although still offers game viewing from vehicles and canoes.
Zimbabwe has a number of private game areas. The beauty of these areas is that you are away from the strictures of the national parks. The only lodge in a private reserve that we currently sell is the amazing Pamushana in Malilangwe.
Located on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia the Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya meaning the 'smoke that thunders' is the worlds largest curtain of falling water and one of Africa's most famous sites.
