Zimbabwe was the first country Safari Drive operated in and our first base was set up in Victoria Falls in 1993. The country was by far our favourite to run safaris in until around 2008 when the political situation became impossible for us to do so. We are delighted to now feel secure enough to send our valued clients back to this stunning country and experience what Zimbabwe safaris have to offer. The National Parks campsites are a bit run down but the game is still there as is the stunning scenery. The generally warm and friendly people are so proud to be Zimbabwean. There are some really beautiful lodges and camps dotted around the country and the legendary safari guides will delight in showing you their county and the prolific game.

It is possible to tour the whole country and there is so much to see and do, from Mana Pools National Park on the lower Zambezi River, to Great Zimbabwe¹s extraordinary ruins and Cecil Rhodes movingly beautiful grave on the top of World’s View in the unusual Motobo Hills. Look at Zimbabwe in a refreshed light and visit it again with confidence.
