A safari to Zimbabwe would normally, if not always, include the magnificent Victoria Falls, rarely venturing further south. But Southern Zimbabwe is a gem in terms of diversity in wildlife as well as cultural experiences. Despite the country’s political turmoil, wildlife reserves in the South are filled with rare species of animals and boast high standard accommodation. Southern Zimbabwe is home to the unspoilt Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve, the iconic boulders of Matobo Hills National Park, and also the ancient ruins of Africa; Great Zimbabwe, and includes the oldest man-made stone structure south of the Sahara. Excellent accommodation options and exclusive game viewing await you in this beautiful part of Zimbabwe.

WHEN TO GO?

The parks of Southern Zimbabwe offer excellent game viewing opportunities all year round, but especially during dry season (May to October) when vegetation is sparse and wildlife congregates to drink at the pans providing exceptional sighting opportunities. During the rainy months (November to April) the vegetation bursts into life, a birding enthusiast’s dream but can cause some of the land-dwelling animals to disperse.

TOP ACTIVITIES

Visit the Great Zimbabwe Ruins which, 700 years ago, was one of Africa’s greatest civilisations. The World Heritage Site of Matobo Hills features iconic boulders piled on top of each other with pristine game viewing in a spectacular setting. In Malilangwe stand a good chance of spotting the critically endangered black rhino or roan and sable antelope.

 

WHERE NEXT?

Having headed south to the secret delights of Southern Zimbabwe head back to Victoria Falls for direct connecting routes to all other major African air hubs including Cape Town, Johannesburg, Botswana or Mauritius, for the ultimate beach and bush luxury holiday.
