Southern Zimbabwe has so much to offer, it is remarkable how little it is visited. This unique small-group tour takes clients not only to the well-visited Matobo NP, but beyond to the scenic wildernesses of Gonarezhou and Save Valley, as well as the hidden gem of Chimanimani. With the chance to spot all of the 'Big Five' in addition to rarities including wild dog, cheetah and even pangolin, this is a must-do tour.
