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 vacation.
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 vacation an unforgettable experience.
Our custom-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 vacation in Zimbabwe is sure to be an experience you won’t forget.
