Places to Visit in Zimbabwe
Undoubtedly the main draw for visiting Zimbabwe is a wildlife safari. Some of the key places to visit in Zimbabwe are Hwange National Park, Mana Pools National Park and Matusadona National Park. Water is a key feature of Zimbabwe and is key for survival for the animals and birds that inhabit these pristine national parks.
In Hwange, Zimbabwe’s largest reserve, in the dry season the wildlife congregates around the many man-made waterholes. It is not uncommon to see herds of elephant in their hundreds come to drink; a sight to behold. In Mana Pools, arguably one of the most beautiful parks in all of Africa - the lifeblood for the animals is the mighty Zambezi River and in Matusadona, Lake Kariba, the world’s largest artificial lake provides the means for survival but for visitors the chance to explore by boat and fish. At the start or end of a wildlife safari in Zimbabwe, our experts recommend a few nights at the spectacular Victoria Falls or for history and culture enthusiasts, time in the Matobo National Park outside of Bulawayo where black rhino roam amid rock formations and ancient rock art is immaculately preserved.
