From the earliest times to the present, Zimbabwe has boasted a rich cultural heritage, archaeological treasures and friendly people. Game viewing enthusiasts are spoiled for choices with an extensive system of National Parks each with an incredibly diverse range of species. Every form of game viewing is offered from night game drives, boat safaris, canoe, kayak and even houseboat, to walking safaris.
- Landlocked and bound by mighty rivers and mountains, most of Zimbabwe is a rolling plateau, the Highveld, which is a central ridge forming the country's watershed. Streams flow southeast to the Limpopo and Sabi Rivers and northwest into the Zambezi.
- Zimbabwe has more official languages than any other country in the world. The 16 official languages of Zimbabwe are: Chewa, Chibarwe, English, Kalanga, Koisan, Nambya, Ndau, Ndebele, Shangani, Shona, Sotho, Tonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa, and the Zimbabwean Sign Language.
- Zimbabwe has a moderate climate with rain from November to May. Days are often sunny with dramatic late afternoon thunderstorms. September to October is the top time for wildlife viewing.
Zimbabwe is a land of dramatic contrasts; from the Kalahari sands of Hwange to the iconic Victoria Falls, this is a country with mountains, deserts, lakes and rivers. A safari in Zimbabwe can combine several landscapes, each offering a sense of scale and wilderness that it is hard to discover elsewhere. Experience Zimbabwe’s ethereal beauty, reflected in its wide-open spaces with a never-ending canopy of sky, forested escarpments, national parks and game reserves teeming with wildlife and cascading waterfalls.

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest park offering a diverse vegetation, scenery and game, notably large herds of animals, particularly elephant.
Mana Pools National Park sees the Zambezi flood plains turn into a broad expanse of lakes each rainy season, making it a renowned game-viewing region.
Lake Kariba is one of the world’s largest man-made lakes. With its prolific game and bird life, enjoy an unparalleled boat-based safari.
Great Zimbabwe was the capital of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe during the country’s Late Iron Age and built by ancestors of the Shona people.
