11-Day Zimbabwe Highlights Accommodated Safari Tour


The trip starts in Victoria Falls and pass through, Hwange, Matopos Park, Great Zimbabwe the eastern Highlands and then Harare. Zimbabwe has always evoked emotion and a sense of nostalgia.

Zimbabwe with its diverse landscape is home to some of Africa’s largest game reserves but reports say several species such as impala, warthog, kudu and wildebeest are at risk from rampant poaching by people struggling with hunger and rising poverty and from cross-border trophy hunters.

Zimbabwe’s state National Parks and Wildlife Authority says most Zimbabwe animals in the larger game reserves have not been affected by massive poaching and remain safe.

With wildlife officials saying the country’s elephant population soaring to more that 100 000 – twice as much as the 45 000 it can sustain.

All about the 11-Day Zimbabwe Highlights Accommodated Safari Tour.

“Our trip to Hwange National Park recently left us with stunning memories of huge herds of elephants, a group of six cheetahs, lion sighting, two wild dog, herds of sable, impala and my personal favourite the graceful giraffe We saw NO signs what so ever of poaching in the Hwange National Park.”

From our own personal experience into Zimbabwe’s National Parks, there is still abundant game, and evidence of wholesale slaughter is just not apparent.
