Zimbabwe Photo Tours
Zimbabwe remains an under-visited yet richly rewarding African photographic safari destination.
Aside from the world-renowned Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park and Mana Pools, the country is also blessed with diverse habitats, ranging from the granite hills of the Matopos, to vast areas of pristine bushveld and woodland, to the majestic mountains, lush forests and beautiful rivers of the Eastern Highlands. As such, there is much to attract the traveller, from wildlife viewing and adrenalin adventures to delving into the history of the Zimbabwean people going back thousands of years.
It is in the more unspoilt and peaceful northern parks that we concentrate our safari operations. The Zambezi has an exceptional variety of spectacular scenery as well as one of the world’s natural wonders: the Victoria Falls. The national parks along the Zambezi are legendary; our concession lies in Mana Pools, located on the floodplains of Africa’s Great Rift Valley and offering superb wildlife viewing.
Along the Botswana border the easternmost tongues of the Kalahari sands creep into the country and mix with the teak forests of the interior, so that desert-adapted animals share the same habitat with woodland species. Hwange National Park is home to some of southern Africa’s last great elephant, buffalo and sable herds, and Wilderness’ Makalolo concession within Hwange is a truly wild area where animals have no restrictions and can migrate back and forth. This area also offers Zimbabwe’s best summer game viewing.
