With one of the world's best climates; wonderful scenery and diverse habitats; excellent game densities in the national parks; a rich history and safari guides who are some of the most qualified in Africa, holidays to Zimbabwe have plenty to offer.

Zimbabwe is home to some rare and unusual places, from the granite boulders of the Matobo Hills to the world's largest artificial lake, Lake Kariba and the Victoria Falls Rainforest; the only place on earth where it rains all day.

The rainforest lies just across from the magnificent Victoria Falls itself - a welcome addition to your bucket list. The falls are full of adventure activities; soar over the 108m drop with helicopter rides or tackle the rapids of the mighty Zambezi River.

Travel downstream to best explore the river's lush waterways in the Mana Pools National Park - watch out for crocodile and one of Africa's largest hippo populations as you canoe along the channels. It's a wildlife bonanza with buffalo lining the river banks and elephant casually wading right in front of your canoe.

You'll find thousands of these gentle giants across Zimbabwe but especially in Hwange National Park, famous for its massive herds of elephant. With a stunning landscape of Kalahari desert sand, sparse woodland, grassland and granite outcrops, Hwange is home to over 100 mammal species, some of the highest mammal diversity for any national park in the world.

But it's not all about the wildlife. Get to know the fascinating history of the country with visits to early rock art sites and the remnants of an ancient civilisation at UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Great Zimbabwe Ruins.

Zimbabwe's diversity can offer a holiday with many facets but if you still want more, our expert consultants can combine Zimbabwe with the likes of South Africa, Mozambique or Mauritius to create a fun twin-centre holiday, perfect for an entirely different honeymoon or family holiday.

British colonialism remains sewn into the fibre of the country but local traditions are visible everywhere and Zimbabwe is famous for the hospitality and friendliness of its people.

One of Southern Africa's most beautiful countries and premier safari destinations, we are utterly passionate about Zimbabwe.

Nikki O'Hare has been the BEST consultant that I have ever dealt with! I have been involved myself in travel professionally for over 30 years.... Your agents on the ground in Zimbabwe 'Wild Horizons' were just excellent! Professional and efficient. A pleasure to deal with. All the arrangements that were made by you were correct, and we were met everywhere as promised. The whole trip went like clockwork!
