The publicity surrounding Zimbabwe in recent years has been very negative due to the political situation. Prospective clients should, however, rest assured that the areas of Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba and the game lodges are safe and offer visitors excellent value for money coupled with an unforgettable experience in one of Africa’s most beautiful countries.
Highlights during any trip to Zimbabwe:
- Victoria Falls
- Great Zimbabwe Ruins
- Hwange National Park
- Mana Pools
- Matopos National Park
- Chinhoyi Caves
Best time to travel:
- Although the country has a tropical temperature, the altitude has a moderated influence on it.
- Summer starts in November and continuous through to March, which is also the rainy season (night and morning rains). Although this a comfortable temperature, game viewing is not that good due to high grass, but then again the country is covered in a beautiful green carpet.
- The best time to visit Zimbabwe will be in early or late winter (April, May and then again August and September). The winter days are between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius, but night-time temperatures can drop to much lower figures.
