Zimbabwe still remains one of Africa’s best safari destinations. Despite the political woes in this country, discerning safari goers still visit this country in good numbers. Tragic events here have made media headlines around the world, but right now the country is as safe and unspoiled to visit as it was in the 80’s.
Few other counties on the continent allow game walking safaris where your professional guide is armed for your safety. The Zimbabwe Professional Guides licence is the most highly esteemed and sought after on the continent. National Parks in Zimbabwe are privatized and none of this revenue ends up in the hands of the government.
Zimbabwe is a unique and exciting safari destination; home to the famous Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall on the continent. The mighty Zambezi River and its tributaries form the fourth largest river basin of the continent. There are many good reasons why a safari in Zimbabwe is wonderful experience; it stands out as one of the most affordable safari destinations in Africa and has some of Africa’s most exclusive wildlife areas and National Parks which remain unspoiled and remote.
Travelers can expect to have an up-close wildlife experience without hordes of tourists. Zimbabwe safaris remain personal, intimate, wild and unscathed. There are a range of accommodation options, from 5 star luxury lodges to basic mobile tented camps.
A safari especially for people who like to walk! One of the best ways to escape the vehicle view of the bush is to seek adventure by canoe and on foot. Terrific game walks in three national parks: Matusadona, Mana Pools, and Hwange.
