Zimbabwe

Experience Zimbabwe’s ethereal beauty, its wide-open spaces, never-ending skies, forested escarpments, national parks and game reserves teeming with wildlife and cascading waterfalls.

Zimbabwe is one of Africa’s most alluring African destinations.

Long known for its sensational landscapes, exotic wildlife, and welcoming locals, travellers are once again putting Zimbabwe on their list for its many wonderful attractions.

From Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest, to dreamy Mana Pools on the banks of the Zambezi; the elephants of Gonarezhou on the border with Mozambique and the extraordinary granite landscapes of the Matobo Hills, there are wildlife and cultural encounters aplenty. Victoria Falls will dazzle with its thundering cascades and myriad adventure activities and Lake Kariba offers houseboating, safaris at Matusadona National Park and exciting game fishing.

On an A&K luxury safari to Zimbabwe, you’ll travel beyond the well-trodden path to game reserves where the wildlife is abundant and the viewing experience uncrowded and intimate. Conservation minded camps and lodges are handpicked to ensure your footprint is light and that impact on the surrounding environment is minimal.

When to Go

Zimbabwe’s winter months (May to November) are ideal for safaris when temperatures are mild and there is little to no rainfall. 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, they can provide excellent conditions for game viewing.
