Zimbabwe – the land of the mighty Victoria Falls, iconic safari areas and majestic Zambezi River – is a destination that will inspire and excite any traveller.
Located in Southern Africa and surrounded on all sides by the following countries: South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique – Zimbabwe is a destination that is well worth adding to your safari bucket list. It offers dramatic and varied landscapes, from Victoria Falls to the Zambezi River to Hwange National Park to Mana Pools, where visitors can also observe a wide array of wildlife, including the Big Five as well as over 670 species of birds.
Due to its location, Zimbabwe is a great destination to combine with other South African destinations and multi country itineraries can be arranged, such as The Magic Of The Zambezi & Victoria Falls 7 Days
Zimbabwe is a year-round travel destination and offers something different throughout the seasons. There is one main rainy season which happens from December – April, however it can start as early as November. The green season April – May are when the rains have finished but the landscape is still lush and green. June – October are the dryer months, when safari viewing can be at it’s best but the temperatures are hotter before the rains begin again.
One thing to bear in mind with travelling to Zimbabwe is if you are planning to include Victoria Falls in your itinerary then you will most likely want to visit just after the rains, otherwise you may be disappointed. To discuss the best time then do speak to one of our dedicated travel consultants, especially if you are looking to combine Victoria Falls with a Safari, as the travel window can be quite small in order to get the best from both.
