Zimbabwe

Discover the beauty and wildlife of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park and Zambezi National Park, while staying at luxurious lodges.

Travel Testimonial

"Just returned from an outstanding game watching tour that included remote areas of Zimbabwe and Botswana. It was organized by John at Lion World Travel. The variety of wildlife we saw was remarkable. The lodges were comfortable, the food was excellent, and the local people we met were friendly and charming. I would highly recommend a similar tour for anyone interested in seeing many different animals in their natural surroundings."
