Zimbabwe Tours, Packages and Budget Safaris

Zimbabwe is located in southern Africa, landlocked by Zambia, Mozambique, South Africa and Botswana, covering 390 580 square kilometres. The capital city, Harare is populated with over 12 million people. The official language is English, with Shona and Ndebele widely spoken by most locals. The land is covered with a large variety of endemic plants and trees and is home to over 350 species of mammals, 500 bird species, 131 fish species and many types of reptiles.

The ever-popular Victoria Falls is located in northern Zimbabwe within the Victoria Falls National Park. This incredible waterfall of 1 708 meters in width, drops 108 meters straight into the mighty Zambezi River and is one of the world’s 7 natural wonders. Approximately 30 000 people visit the Falls every year, so this is an opportunity not to be missed. On this Zimbabwe tour you will visit the largest National Park – Hwange National Park which covers 14 650 square kilometres. Plenty of wildlife can be spotted as the park is home to over 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 bird species have been recorded. Another highlight is Lake Kariba which is the largest artificial lake in the world at 220 kilometres in length and 40 kilometres wide.

The nightlife of Harare will get your feet moving and your heart pumping. With sidewalk cafes, pubs and restaurants expect live music, local delicious cuisine and DJ’s spinning vibes late into the night, or early morning! Sport’s bars also add to the night time vibes with cricket being widely supported.

There are also several islands situated in the lake where plenty of wildlife can be spotted and diving can be added to your bucket list on our Zimbabwe Tours. In addition to our budget tours below, we offer a variety of other tours in Zimbabwe to suite your needs.

Why go to Zimbabwe on a Budget African Safari Tour?

Victoria Falls

The awe-inspiring Victoria Falls is a very popular and unique destination as it is the largest waterfall in the world. As you gaze upon this majestic miracle of nature, think back to the time when the explorer, David Livingstone first set eyes on the falls. He aptly named it in honour of Queen Elizabeth, who reigned Britain at the time. Here are a fewtips on how to choose your Cape Town To Victoria Falls Overland Tour. Once you have chosen your dream tour, have a look at the many activities available to get your heart racing…

The Mana Pools National Park

The Mana Pools lie in a relatively remote area in the park where you can spot numerous hippos, crocodiles, zebras, elephants and antelopes coming for a drink of water. It is a World Heritage Site due to its natural beauty and abundance of wildlife.

The Great Zimbabwe National Monument

Old stone ruins and winding corridors are the fascinating remains of the Great Zimbabwe National Monument, the greatest medieval city in sub-Saharan Africa. The Zimbabwe Ruins are some of the oldest and largest ruins in Southern Africa with a fascinating history behind it.

The Hwange National Park

Hwange is one of the few African parks where game viewing is consistently good all year round due to the many waterholes in the area. The Park is situated in the west of Zimbabwe, on the main road between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls. In the park there are over 400 bird species due to the seasonal wetland and you will spot gemsbok, brown hyena, African wild dogs, lions, leopard, elephants, spotted hyena and cheetahs.

Lake Kariba 

Lake Kariba is the world’s largest artificial inland lake that attracts massive quantities of game, both big and small, including huge Nile crocodiles, elephants and hippopotamus. There is also a wide variety of birdlife, including theAfrican Fish Eagle, an amazing bird to see in action as it swoops down to catch its prey.

Zambezi National Park

Made up of 40 kilometres of Zambezi River frontage and a spread of wildlife-rich mopane forest and savannah, the Zambezi National Park is most well-known for its sable antelope herds. However, it is also home to giraffe, elephant and lions. Entrance to the Park is just five kilometres northwest of the Victoria Falls town centre, and is easily accessible by private vehicle. Tour conductors on either side of the border offer wildlife drives, guided hikes and fishing trips.

Best time to go on a tour to Zimbabwe

During the dry season (see ‘Weather in Zimbabwe’ above) there is less vegetation and water. Due to these conditions it is a good time to see game because they are not hidden in the shrubbery and tend to congregate around waterholes. Due to no rain, there are no mosquitoes that breed in stagnant water. You will find clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine. Keep in mind that this is high season so Victoria Falls could be crowded. The best time to view the falls is from June to September when the spray from the flooding waters doesn’t spoil the view.

During the wet season (see ‘Weather in Zimbabwe’ above) the vegetation is green and lush making for some picturesque areas, but the game may be harder to spot. If you love cute baby animals, then this is the best time to go because the animals are giving birth. Birdwatchers can delight in the breeding plumage and the migratory birds. There are only short afternoon showers which won’t ruin your safari and can in fact be quite refreshing. Keep in mind though that this rain can occur everyday. Humidity is very high, so keep this in mind if you are not used to humidity.
