In our opinion, you can travel safely to Zambezi National Park. Especially if you are on a guided safari. For up-to-date information about safety in Zimbabwe, it’s worth checking the government travel advisories (see the ‘Safety & Security – Zimbabwe’ link below).

Malaria & Vaccinations

Several vaccinations are advised for travel to Zimbabwe – consult your local doctor or travel clinic. Malaria is a concern, and you should take precautions to protect yourself, such as taking an antimalarial medication, wearing mosquito repellent containing DEET and covering up exposed skin in the evening when mosquitoes are most active.

Wildlife Viewing

Wildlife viewing is generally very safe. The best way to protect yourself from any risk is to listen to the advice of your guide. Also, take note of the ‘Wildlife Viewing Safety Precautions’ below.
