Home to one of the World’s Seven Natural Wonders, Victoria Falls, and globally recognized for its outstanding biodiversity, Zimbabwe should be at the top of every serious traveler’s bucket list.

As Zimbabwe’s largest and arguably best national park, Hwange National Park is an incredibly diverse wilderness. Visitors on a Zimbabwe safari vacation can witness large herds of buffalo, one of the most significant populations of wild dogs in Africa, 400 species of bird, and various fierce predators. Hwange is so dense with wildlife referred to by many as “Noah’s Ark.”


  • Enjoy a revitalizing “sundowner” before delighting in 5-star cuisine beneath a star-studded sky at Zimbabwe’s lavish camps or lodges.
  • Canoe along the Zambezi River and witness hippo, elephant, crocodile, giraffe, and more, or enjoy a traditional Zimbabwe meal at Aunt Flatter’s.
  • Known in many parts of the world as Africa’s Adventure Capital, Victoria Falls is an adrenaline lover paradise. From zip-lining to bungee jumping and white water rafting to gorge swinging, there is no shortage of adventure at Victoria Falls.
