Zimbabwe, known for its welcoming people and stunning natural beauty, boasts the magnificent Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The diverse landscapes, from the lush Eastern Highlands to the vast Hwange National Park, offer a wealth of adventure and safari opportunities. Zimbabwe’s rich history and vibrant culture add depth to the traveler’s experience.


Zimbabwe experiences a mild, pleasant climate with distinct dry and wet seasons. The best time to visit is during the dry winter season from May to October when game viewing is exceptional in Hwange National Park, Mana Pools and Gonarezhou National Park. The iconic Victoria Falls is most impressive from July to September when water levels are at their peak. For bird enthusiasts, the wet summer months from November to April bring migratory species and lush landscapes.


    • Victoria Falls: The Falls itself is one of the largest waterfalls on Earth, The falls’ width, over 1,700 meters (5,577 feet), and the thunderous roar of its cascading waters make for a truly mesmerizing spectacle. 
    • Gonarezhou National Park: It is one of the last remaining unspoiled wilderness areas in Africa, offering visitors a genuine and off-the-beaten-path safari experience. Due to its location and lack of access (scheduled flights) the park records incredibly low visitor numbers making it the ideal location for those safari purists. We believe that it affords walking safari enthusiasts, arguably, the best walking safari in Africa. The conservation story that underpins the parks success is something WHY Travel is deeply passionate about. 
    • Mana Pools National Park: Its prime location on The Mighty Zambezi River is up there as one of the great places to safari. The spectacular, soft winter light is a photographer’s dream. Few places rival Mana for a walking safari and the added benefit of fishing (catch and release strictly) make it a special place for families.
