Luxury Zimbabwe safari

enter image description here

Zimbabwe has many excellent luxury safari lodges and high-end camps dotted around the country, with a concentration in Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park. If you only have a short time to visit the country, then focus your time on these two destinations, where you’ll have a choice of luxury lodging options, each of which will offer a host of activities to fill your days.

On a longer holiday, you’ll be able to see more of Zimbabwe’s parks and reserves: stay on a luxury houseboat on Lake Kariba to explore this beautiful water wilderness in style and then experience one of Africa’s best wilderness areas – Mana Pools National Park – in a high-end lodge on a private concession that offers walking and canoeing as thrilling ways of seeing wildlife in the park.

The easiest way to travel between luxury lodges in in Zimbabwe is by private charter plane, but there is also an air taxi service that flies between Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park, Lake Kariba and Mana Pools National Park.
