A Zimbabwean adventure

Zimbabwe is a secret favourite of many safari enthusiasts. Enchanting landscapes, exciting gravel tracks and animal-filled national parks such as Mana Pools, Matusadona or Hwange make the country one of the world’s best safari destinations and this stage an extra special one. We also visit the amazing Victoria Falls and, last but certainly not least, take a brief trip to Botswana.
