Zimbabwe

Spot elephants, lions, cheetahs, and buffalo on your luxury safari in Zimbabwe.

After years of political turmoil, Zimbabwe has reestablished its reputation as an alluring African travel destination. Known for its sensational landscapes, exotic wildlife, and hospitable peoples, travellers are once again flocking to Zimbabwe for a taste of its culture and countryside. Treat your ears to the soothing sounds of mbira music, pick up an intricate soapstone sculpture, or simply fill your camera with photos of wild animals at play in their natural habitats.

Perfect for animal lovers, the Hwange National Park--Zimbabwe’s largest park--and the Mana Pools National Park are home to everything from hyenas and lions to leopards, hippos, and more. An experienced Abercrombie & Kent travel guide at your side will make sure to enhance your safari experience.

Our team of travel experts are committed to pioneering luxury tours that delight and impress even the most discerning travelers. With us, you’ll enjoy an elevated authentic experience, learning about the Zimbabwean way of life and seeing firsthand why this country is a must-see on any African itinerary.

Best time to travel to Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s winter months (May to October) offer mild temperatures, little to no rain, and a low malaria risk. Although Victoria Falls impresses all year round, it is at its fullest during this time, and while September and October tend to be hot and dry, this is an ideal season for game viewing.

Award-winning luxury travel through Zimbabwe

We are pleased to offer our valued guests a selection of luxury tours suited to solo thrill-seekers, nature enthusiasts, couples, small groups, and families. Your little ones will squeal with delight as they enjoy an up-close encounter with the Presidential Herd, Africa’s largest elephant population, at Hwange National Park.

No trip to Zimbabwe would be complete without a visit to Victoria Falls. Lush, colourful rainforests line the trails leading to this impressive natural wonder of the world. Those looking for an added boost of adrenaline may wish to try bungee jumping or rafting in some of the world’s wildest whitewaters.

Watch Victoria Falls glisten in the distance as you glide along Lake Kariba. From there, board your high-impact 4WD and explore remote corners of the Matusadona National Park. Whether your preferred mode of transportation is car, boat, canoe, or on foot, we’ve curated the perfect selection of safari and other adventure activities.

To protect Zimbabwe’s wildlife and natural beauty, we proudly partner with organisations and conservation initiatives including the Cheetah Conservation Project Zimbabwe.

A one-of-a-kind camping experience

Elevate your Zimbabwean experience with camping reimagined. Camps such as Linkwasha, Changa Safari, and Ruckomechi all meet our exacting standards of comfort and luxury, and each offers spectacular views of the country’s dramatic landscapes.

Marvel over the African skies from Ruckomechi Camp’s inviting fire deck before retiring for the evening to your well-appointed en-suite tent. You’ll wake feeling refreshed and ready for a day spent fishing, game driving, and relaxing along the mighty Zambezi River.

For a unique view of Victoria Falls, the world’s largest falling sheet of water, consider the 5-star, colonial-era Victoria Falls Hotel.
