Why We Love Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe – It’s more than Victoria Falls!

Most visitors to Zimbabwe experience the “must see” Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the adventure capital of the region. Its game rich national parks serve up breathtaking sunrises, up close wildlife encounters and star-studded night skies. Described as the world’s largest curtain of falling water, Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

After experiencing the awesome Victoria Falls and its plentiful adventure activities, visitors to Zimbabwe have a wealth of safari opportunities. Victoria Falls is an exciting way to start or end any African safari adventure.


Unique Experiences in Zimbabwe - Beyond Victoria Falls


Hwange National Park

It’s a short flight to the largest park in Zimbabwe, the diverse Hwange National Park, with an extensive network of waterholes that draw large herds of elephant and plains game to the park and surrounding private reserves.  During the dry winter months, the landscape starts to dry out from the month of June, allowing for amazing game watching.  Animal sightings include wild dog, lion, leopard, and cheetahs.

The Hwange National Park is most famous for its elephants, as roughly 50,000 of them roam freely around the park.

Ngamo Village

Located just outside of the Hwange National Park, a visit to the village in Ngamo, provides one an outside perspective on the life of the people of Zimbabwe. This is an incredible experience as speaking with the people of Ngamo and learning about their rich cultures and traditions is a highlight of any Zimbabwe trip.

Mana Pools National Park

Mana Pools is the country’s second World Heritage Site where one can canoe and walk in a wildlife-rich and scenic region. Spectacular views of the Zambezi River, floodplains, the rift valley escarpment, and tree canopy make this a wildlife photographers paradise. Mana Pools National Park is famous for sightings of large elephant herds that are paired with unique sightings of both lion and leopards as well. The park has also been known to have many endangered species such as the wild dog.


WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT OUR ZIMBABWE SAFARI'S

"We just got back from our trip to Capetown, Thornybush Private Game Reserve, and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. It was one of the best vacations we have taken. The accommodations were great, the tours were really well done, and we loved the game drives and the river cruises. Everything worked like clock work. Our fellow travelers made the experience even more enjoyable".

Lakshmi G (Via Tripadvisor)

"Lion World set up a trip of a lifetime for us in South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. We spent several days in Capetown, 4 days at Lion Sands Resort in Sabi Sands Game Reserve, and 4 days at Chobe Chilwero in Botswana, as well as Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. The entire tour was first rate class with excellent accomodations, private tours, and absolutely everything we could ask for incredible experience".
