Our insights on Zimbabwe

  • If you’re looking for a warm and welcoming stay in Africa, Zimbabwe is a wonderful option. Home to the friendliest people in Africa, lots of guests give excellent reviews of locals’ highly positive attitude toward tourists.

  • The Zimbabwe Ruins were once a great medieval African city, built centuries ago with giant granite blocks with no mortar or adhesive. Explore the country’s history more by visiting Khami Ruins, Danamombe Ruins, and The BaTonga Community Museum.

  • Victoria Falls is perhaps Zimbabwe’s most famous attraction. After the rainy season, Mosi-oa-Tunya is in full flood and provides a spectacle that can be seen for miles around. If you don’t like getting wet, make sure you rent or bring a raincoat when you visit the falls, as the spray can be intense!

  • The Hwange area is a must for elephant enthusiasts. Up to a thousand have been counted visiting a single waterhole. At night, enjoy a ‘sleep-out’ platform where you can drift off underneath the Milky Way and wake up at sunrise.

  • Matabo is treasure trove of rock art. Some 3 000 paintings are scattered among its massive boulders and rocky outcrops and are worth a visit.

  • One of the biggest reasons to visit Zimbabwe is its outstanding commitment to tailored, private and exclusive experiences.
