Go to Zimbabwe it's wonderful
Amazing. We went to Mana Pools, had 3 days canoeing down the Zambezi then on to Hwange National Park finishing at Victoria Falls for a couple of days. Wildlife and birds - wonderful and so varied. The camps clean and food amazing. All staff were obviously happy in their work and the guides so informative - how do they spot so much. And of course Victoria Falls, one of the wonders of the world - enough said.

Our only experience is Hwange NP and Vic Falls, but both of these were excellent and I understand the guiding to be of high quality throughout the country.

Zimbabwe has outstanding wildlife. The scenery is varied,and just lovely. The guides are the best trained in Africa. It also offers an outstanding bush vibe.

Amazingggggg & Breathtaking
I first went to Zim on the year 2011 the experience was of out of this world,friendly accommodative warm people..There is no such thing as poverty in Zim like they show on TV.i visited almost every corner where many tourists don't get to go and mixed with the locals. A place called Mbare(a flea market of its out style) ,the Chinoyi caves(natural caves beautiful)Lake kariba,flea market at Borrowdale one of the most expensive well maintained beautiful structural houses in Zimbabwe. I did not do the obvious "Lake kariba" the eastern region of Zimbabwe where you have mysterious mountains. I went to Zimbabwe from that year every year three times a year. The local food I couldn't stop eating. I have visited Harare in and out(from the city to the villages)went a braai in Bulawayo. Experience Zimbabwe as it is a great country with a rich culture and visit where not may goes.
To be quite honest you can never talk about Zimbabwe and not see my eyes popping. Its a country I will visit as many times. I suggests tourists start going into the depth of the country not only what is shown when you google.

Zimbabwe is a safe country to drive in. Car hire is easy, efficient and there are plenty of places to go for fuel and supplies. The roads are generally good and there are things to see all over the place. National Parks all over the country where the wildlife viewing is varied as well as plentiful. The birdlife is out of this world. Zimbabwe has the advantage of having diverse soil types hosting diverse vegetation and therefore diverse flora and fauna. From the Dry Semi-desert of the South East and South West to the Pristine forests and perrenial streams of the Eastern Highlands.

The national parks in Zimbabwe are set in different geographical locations which offer bush, lakeside, cliffs or mountains and makes it very interersting and varied to visit. Its low level of tourists keeps safari very wild and the guides are usually of great knowledge. Birding is wonderful, with over 650 species of birds recorded in the country. Besides, there is the cultural heritage which is worth a visit too, like Great Zimbabwe, or ancient bushman paintings to be found all over the country.

Zimbabwe is a great place to visit. 20 years ago it was on the beaten track, then with 'the troubles' people stopped going. The wonderful places are still there - minus the tourists (at the moment!). Get there before everyone else does.
As explained above- LESS PEOPLE - More like the westerners Vision of a REAL Safari. Dirt Roads etc.

Zimbabwe is probably southern Africa's most diverse country, in terms of its landscapes and national parks. Incredible Highlands exist along the eastern border. There are vast wilderness areas in the north and west, including Hwange, Lake Kariba and the Zambezi river valley. In the south east, the country's lowest point, there is Gonarezhou National Park, which is bordered by vast wildlife conservancies. Victoria Falls is the crowning jewel in the far north west. All these areas are home to vast populations of wildlife. The best parks to go on Safari and have a chance to see some, or even all of the big five, include Hwange, Mana Pools and Gonarezhou. All these parks are well maintained and have vast road networks, as well as a multitude of accommodation venues, ranging from comfortable self catering options to 5 star lodges. Zimbabwe is renowned for its professional guides, who have to go through a rigid training period that lasts no less than four years and involves hands on practical application. This makes Zimbabwe an amazing place to go on a walking safari. Overall Zimbabwe has so much to offer the safari entusiast!
