"I feel the calling to highlight some of the world’s, and especially my home continent’s, rarest and most wonderful places. The richness of Zimbabwe’s wildlife and geography has never really worn off on me, and over the years, I have never once tired of returning here to marvel at our natural world."
—Michele Harvey, Experience Designer
Big five territory
Zimbabwe is an Africa of distinct but complementary charms. Wildlife-rich Mana Pools inspire canoe safaris amongst submerging hippos, basking crocodiles and bathing elephants, while the vast waterways of Lake Kariba explode with birdlife and superlative sunsets. In Hwange National Park, your quintessential safari comes alive—early morning game drives, incredible guides, prolific wildlife and stars that blanket the heavens. The other-worldly landscapes of the Matobo Hills safeguard ancient stories painted into granite walls, as teetering boulders stand sentinel. Amongst it all, the tumult of Victoria Falls maintains a perpetual rage, while the mighty Zambezi powers relentlessly on. Let us weave your own African narrative—below are some ideas to help guide you.
Discover the possibilities:
Zimbabwe & South Africa Multi-Active
Hike the dramatic cliffs of Victoria Falls and release your adrenalin-junkie-alter-ego as you dive in (perhaps literally!) to Africa’s Adventure Capital. Plane-hop into Sabi Sands to live out your safari dreams, blending wildlife-spotting with glorious, sundowner-filled moments at day’s end. On the Whale Coast, hike spectacular coastlines and follow your guide into the intricate wonders of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Traverse Cape Town’s famous mountain, mingle with locals in the edgy Inner City and explore the power of music in the struggle against Apartheid.
Hiking & Cycling in Zimbabwe
Hike the Matobo Hills uncovering a rich cultural history, track Rhino on foot and bike through local villages. Surrender to the glory of an African safari in lands that were the hunting grounds of royals. Early-morning game amongst zebra, cheetah, elephant and elusive wild dog. Lazy afternoon siestas, evening sundowners and the distant rumble of lions at night. In Victoria Falls, your anticipated imaginings can’t match the spectacle that awaits!
Zimbabwe Family Safari
If family-time could be perfected, this is how it would look… Early morning game drives as elephants trumpet in the day. Adventurous canoe safaris amongst hippos—we swear they’re belly-laughing! Delighting over the day’s adventures by campfire. Cruising past bathing elephants, hiking Zambian cliffs to the thunderous roar of Victoria Falls. Rare, treasured night safaris in Botswana. Walking safaris amongst zebra and buffalo, spying predators like lions and wild dogs. Family moments to treasure.
Lodge-to-lodge in Zimbabwe
Our lodge-to-lodge experiences leverage our years of expertise to curate itineraries of a region’s most exceptional properties and handle the logistics between them. Suited for more independent travellers, you’ll still receive the same attention and care we give to every guest—for the same price if you were to book direct with the lodges themselves. A B&R representative will meet you upon arrival and act as your in-destination concierge, while our long-trusted local teams take care of your every need and keep you entertained with immersive activities.
