Zimbabwe Overview

What is the best thing to do in Zimbabwe?
Zimbabwe offers plenty of fabulous safari experiences and the two major national parks – Hwange and Mana Pools – are top of the list when visiting the country. For the more adventurous, Zimbabwe is one of the best countries across Africa for walking and canoeing safaris, whilst the magnificent Victoria Falls is a must-visit.

What is the climate like in Zimbabwe?
Overall the country has a pleasant climate but temperatures vary with elevation. The highveld has a moderate climate (up to 29°C in summer) though hotter in the Zambezi Valley and around the Victoria Falls where temperatures can reach 40°C. The dry season is from May-October when almost no rain falls and the days are warm and sunny. Nights can be very cold with sub-zero temperatures from June-August. October is the hottest month with days in the mid to high 30°s. Rain falls regularly in the summer (November-March/April) turning the bush lush and green.

How do I get to Zimbabwe?
The easiest way into the country is from the South African hub of Johannesburg. Multiple major airlines fly into the city including British Airways, Etihad Airways, Qatar Airways, Delta Airlines, Qantas, and of course South African Airways. From Johannesburg there are regular flights to Victoria Falls, the start and end point for many safaris. Alternatively, for an Edwardian-style, luxury rail experience, journey by Rovos Rail from Pretoria in South Africa to Victoria Falls.

What can I combine Zimbabwe with?
Zimbabwe is easily combinable with neighbouring countries including Botswana, Zambia and South Africa – all of which provide a different safari experience. Another popular combination with a Zimbabwean safari is a visit to Uganda or Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas.
