ZIMBABWE

Stunning nature and adventure
Wildlife in remote parks

Why Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe has a total of 24 natural reserves, which are covering about 12% of the landmass of the country. A few small parks are privately owned, but most of the parks are managed and controlled by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Management.

Most of the national parks are located in the western part of Zimbabwe, which is very dry part of the country, and along the Zambezi River and Lake Kariba in the north. Compared to Namibia and Botswana, the national parks are very accessible and also within the parks the infrastructure is very much developed. So, if you want to visit one of the parks with a ‘normal’ vehicle, then it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.   

Best time to travel to Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe, like its neighbours Zambia and Botswana, has a very similar climate with the rainy season running from November through to mid April. The cooler winter months are drier. Especially July until October are excellent to spot a lot of wildlife in the national parks. Hwange National Park is the most popular and biggest wildlife park of Zimbabwe.

White water rafting on the Zambezi can be done best from August till December, when the waterlevel is low and the rapids fast! The flow of water over the Victoria Falls peaks in March, at the end of the rainy season. There is no doubt why it’s local name is ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ or ‘The Smoke that Thunders’! 

Best time to travel

June until October is the dry season and therefore the best safari months. 

Rainy season

December till March is the rainy season. The Green Season will start from January until April.

Victoria Falls highest level

The flow of water over the Victoria Falls peaks in March, at the end of the rainy season. There is no doubt why it’s local name is ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ or ‘The Smoke that Thunders’!
