Best of Zimbabwe Safari Holiday

Inspirational safari holiday to Zimbabwe

Prepare to be spellbound by the drama of Zimbabwe's untamed beauty and diversity. See the best bits of the country on this vacation flying between the majestic Victoria Falls, and two of Zimbabwe's safari regions Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park. First up, tick one of the seven natural wonders of the world off your travel bucket list. See the Victoria Falls in all its glory and stay at Elephant Camp which gives an uninterrupted view of the breathtaking spray that swells above the Victoria Falls rainforest. Take a flight over the Falls in a helicopter or micro light, go bungee jumping or white water rafting and slow the pace on a sundowner cruise.

Next, fly between two of Zimbabwe's most incredible safari regions staying at Somalisa Camp in Hwange National Park and Nyamatusi Camp in Mana Pools National Park. Both camps are a part of the African Bush Camps portfolio, a visionary, award-winning company dedicated to conservation, with a passion for guiding. You will be blown away by the landscapes and wildlife of both parks, exploring them in game vehicles, on foot and by boat.
