Wilderness Safaris Zimbabwe

A camping safari in Zimbabwe will guide you through this beautiful landlocked country situated in the southern part of Africa, between the mighty Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers. The principle attraction on a wilderness safari in Zimbabwe, is the Victoria Falls, best experienced in the spray drenched rain forest of Victoria Falls National Park. A wide number of adventure activities are focused on the falls and there are endless ways to experience the mighty Zambezi.

The word Zimbabwe is believed to have two meanings:

1) It is believed the word Zimbabwe is derived from dzimba-dza-mabwe, which means 'large house of stone' in the Shona (Karanga Dialect) language.
2) It is also believed to be derived from the word dzimba-hwe which means venerated houses in the Zezuru dialect of Shona.

With so many exiting areas to explore within this beautiful country along with its enjoyable weather it makes it difficult to decide where to begin. The adventure activities in the town of Victoria Falls along with the Victoria Falls itself are an absolute must. Hwange National Park offers spectacular game viewing, while the Great Zimbabwe Ruins offers you a chapter out of Zimbabwe's history.

When joining one of our trips that visit Zimbabwe you may experience cool and dry weather during the months of May to October, and warm wet weather from November to April.
