As dramatic as Africa's natural landscapes are, few can challenge the sheer scale and intensity of Victoria Falls. Centrepiece to a Zimbabwe safari and home to just about every safari and adventure activity you can think of, the 'Smoke that Thunders' in full flood is one of the continent's most dramatic sights.
Indeed, many visitors limit their Zimbabwe experience to Victoria Falls alone. It's perfect for families, honeymooners and adrenalin addicts but the country has long been one of Southern Africa's great game viewing destinations and travellers who want to escape the crowds and see classic African wildlife in remote settings could do a lot worse than put together a Zimbabwe safari itinerary.
Blending great national parks with comfortable safari accommodation and some of the best guiding in Africa, Zimbabwe offers a comprehensive safari experience. Flagship Hwange National Park and Zambezi-focused Mana Pools are the country's heavyweight reserves but Victoria Falls also functions as a convenient travel hub to access amazing wildlife destinations in neighbouring Botswana and Zambia.
