Zimbabwe

With ten national parks, sub-Saharan Africa’s most important archeological ruins ‘The Great Zimbabwe ruins’ and numerous opportunities to dive into the wild at the Mana pools, Hwange’s elephants, Botanical gardens and recreational parks with caves, dams, lakes and waterfalls; Zimbabwe has a little bit for everyone. If you’re not visiting Zambia, you can experience the Victoria Falls and the Zambezi on this side. Encounter the bush via walking/horseback/canoe safaris in prime safari location of Hwange National Park and Zambexi National or witness the highest concentration of game in Africa during the winter months at the more remote Mana Pools National Park. In Harare, see the roadside sculptures, visit the restaurants, shopping centers or picnic, ski or tube on one of the dams.

May to September is the best time to see Victoria Falls and visit all the parks for top game-viewing. April, May and September have pleasant temperatures and the rains in the afternoon needn’t dampen your safari. Whilst February to December are the wettest months and October to February the hottest months.
