Zimbabwe Safaris and Tours

 

A World of Wonders - Zimbabwe is a country blessed with great natural beauty, amazing safari and game reserves as well as mineral wealth. The diverse landscape changes from mountainous to wilderness to typical Bushveld. The Zimbabwean area is also home to large animals and a large bird population, making this area a great place for a safari - yet a relatively untouched and unknown magical paradise.  Zimbabwe is a country located in the southern part of the continent of Africa, between the Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River, Kariba Dam and the Limpopo River. Zimbabwe is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the west, Zambia to the north and Mozambique to the east. The best thing about Zimbabwe is that it is a relatively unknown and untouched area making it the ideal safari destination; as it has the most amazing sights as well as great safari wildlife and lush vegetation.

Zimbabwe lies north of the Tropic of Capricorn and is completely within the tropics, however has a sub-tropical climate because of its high average elevation.  The hot and dry season is from August to October, and the rainy season from November to March. 

High season is from July to October. Accommodation is at a premium at this time as most camps/lodges have less than 10 rooms.  It is essential to book well in advance.

Shoulder season is April, May and June.  This is also a ‘busy time’ in Zimbabwe's national parks and reserves.

Low/Green Season - from November to April is a less popular time to visit due to the rains that cause the wildlife to spread out.  It is however a lovely time of the year to visit as the landscape greens up and many of the antelopes have their young.  With that said, the rain causes some roads and areas to be inaccessible.
