Home to some of Africa’s finest walking and canoeing safaris alongside the Zambezi river in the Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe is also renowned for having some of the best guides in Africa. A Zimbabwe holiday now provides excellent value and has acquired relatively increased stability, due to the dollarization of the economy. We are delighted to say that we believe the jewel of Africa is well and truly back on the map.

Zimbabwe Holidays: 5 Top reasons to go
1. Zimbabwe’s geography – its diverse landscapes and habitats mean that a varied and exciting itinerary can be arranged without too many long journeys, and its location allows easy access to other African countries.
2. Zimbabwe has unquestionably suffered horrifically in recent years. However there is a silver lining: Zimbabwe now offers an untouched wilderness with not a tourist in sight (apart from the ones you brought with you). Now that the country is stable once more, we can’t recommend it enough for an exclusive wild adventure.
3. Hwange’s elephant and lion sightings! A much wilder experience than viewing these majestic beasts in Tanzania’s Serengeti or Botswana’s Chobe…
4. Whether or not you are a keen fisherman - fishing for tiger fish in Lake Kariba. Over 140 miles long and 20 miles wide, the lake itself lends itself to wonderful game viewing by canoe and is superb for big game fish.
5. Victoria Falls. Accessible as easily from the Zimbabwe as the Zambia side, the Falls are a formidable sight and this is a great spot for a host of adrenaline (and non-adrenaline) activities including bungee-jumping.
Where is Zimbabwe?
In geographical terms, Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, about the size of California. Zimbabwe is characterised by a plateau which runs from the north east to the south west of the country at an altitude of around 1000-1500m. The Limpopo and the Lower Zambezi valleys are broad and relatively flat plains in comparison.
Victoria Falls is on the western most tip of the country, whilst the capital, Harare, is in the middle of the country (slightly to the north).
It is easily accessible from Cape Town, South Africa by a short flight making it perfect for those wishing to embark on the finery that Cape Town can offer.
