Nestled between two rivers, the mighty Zambezi and the serene Limpopo, the variety of Zimbabwe’s landscapes knows no bounds, from otherworldly granite rock formations to verdant forests and rolling hills – making it undoubtedly one of Africa’s most beautiful countries for a luxury holiday.

Of course, as with much of Africa, one of the best reasons to visit Zimbabwe is to experience its incredible and iconic variety of wildlife. The Big Five game of buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino all roam the country’s landscapes, alongside many other iconic African animals including zebra, kudu, impala and giraffe. Zimbabwe’s fauna is also beautiful and well worth exploring, making a luxury safari holiday an unforgettable experience.

Our tailor-made Zimbabwe itineraries span the incredible diversity of the country’s geography and wildlife. Perennial favourite Hwange is the country’s largest national park, and the one which draws the most tourists for its fantastic opportunities for spotting iconic African wildlife. The Matobo Hills, meanwhile, are home to unique geological features, with the millennia having weathered the granite into fantastical shapes - in stark contrast to the verdant, rolling hills of the Eastern Highlands. The imposing, iconic Victoria Falls – one of the largest waterfalls in the world – is one of Zimbabwe’s premier tourist attractions, and there’s nothing like a helicopter flight to really take in their majesty.

So, whether you’re marvelling at Zimbabwe’s big game, sleeping beneath the stars at The Hide, or gazing on an African sunset with a sundowner in hand on a Zambezi River boat cruise, a luxury holiday in Zimbabwe is sure to be an experience you won’t forget.

HIGHLIGHTS OF ZIMBABWE

The Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, which at 1500 metres wide and over 100 metres high is one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Particularly adventurous visitors might even pluck up the courage to take on the infamous bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge.

Hwange National Park, the oldest and largest park in the country, which is home to one of the largest populations in the entire world of that gentlest of giants, the elephant. Watching these beasts come to drink at an active waterhole from the comfort of your own safari lodge is an unforgettable experience.

The Zambezi River, which cuts a vital swathe through this country and which, before it is carved in half by the majestic Victoria Falls, offers boundless recreational possibilities including canoeing, game cruising and white water rafting.

The otherworldy beauty of the Matobo Hills, whose granite landscapes have been worn by the elements over the millennia into bizarre shapes. The inhabitants that roam these lands are no less striking, with rhino, leopard, antelope and giraffe among the fauna who have made their home here.
