What are the Best Zimbabwe Safari Attractions?

See the crashing waters at Victoria Falls

With a drop of 105 meters (344 feet), Victoria Falls is the largest free-falling sheet of water in the world. Celebrated for its dramatic thundering smoke and double rainbows, it’s an African must-see – for families, honeymooners and adventure seekers.

Spot wildlife in Hwange National Park

At 14 600 square kilometers (5637 square miles), Zimbabwe’s flagship park is not only large but is also host to the second largest elephant population in the world (after Botswana). It has the added advantage of being close to Victoria Falls (a 2-hour drive and short plane hop), making it an easy combination attraction.

See Fish Eagles at Lake Kariba

To the north is the man-made wonder of Lake Kariba and the fish eagles who find comfort on the branches of its fossilized trees. Nestled in the mountains, it’s a haven for photographers and a destination where tourists are hard to find. Expect an abundance of game fish, numerous islands and herds of elephants and basking crocodiles along the shoreline. Hiring a houseboat for family and friends is the popular method of exploring Lake Kariba.

Get raw and untamed in Mana Pools

Kariba’s neighbor, the 2 500 square kilometers (965 square miles) Mana Pools, is a raw and untamed destination in the Zambezi Valley. Flanked by thick woodlands and covered in extensive grasslands, what makes Mana Pools particularly thrilling is that you can explore this Big 5 park unaccompanied. It has superb game viewing and offers walking and canoe safaris from most of the camps.
