Parks such as Mana Pools in the north provide a unique experience to be able to experience the bush by foot whilst the superbly run Hwange demonstrates that preservation of such large areas of bushland can be done effectively.

Heaven on earth
Overall rating

I've been to Africa many times, visited many countries, but my experience in Zimbabwe and Botswana was different. The scenic is amazing, you could drive for days without encountering any human being. If you travel by camping in a tent, then you really experience the beauty of that land. There are loads of animals, you smell the perfume of wildlife, you can enjoy a walking safari as you never did before. definetly one of the most beautiful places i've ever visited.

a (very) short view in North Zimbabwe
Overall rating

We visited - coming from Botswana on the way to Zambia - shortly the Zambezi N.P. and the Falls. 2001 was the time at beginning of the crisis in Zimbabwe, there where only a view organized tourists at the falls and no one in the N.P. accept ourself. There were some problems with the petrol supply e.g.
Wildlife was a bit poor in the park - have seen just some pigs and a lot of monkeys, which try to steel what they could get (including closed tins and onions).
The Falls are better to visit an the Zimbabwe side than on the Zambian.
Because of the unsave situation inside the country at this time we did not travel further in Zimbabwe.

Stunning! A great place to get close to the wild!
Overall rating

Zimbabwe offered a great opportunity to get very close to wildlife. Most of all I was amazed by the huge numbers of wild elephants roaming very near my Jeep. this offered a wonderful chance to observe these majestic animals and take great photographs of them. Victoria falls are absolutely stunning!

Zimbabwe is the most scenic country in Southern Africa. Mana Pools and Hwange are special places and Victoria Falls should be seen by everybody.

Zimbabwe offers a balanced destination with great sites and low costs. A must do for everyone
Overall rating

The Safari's at Zimbabwe are recommended as the hotels/ lodges are all well maintained, offer a wide variety of rooms/ accomodation types. The safaris give you great chance to view a variety of game (animals and birds) and also experience nature in its original form. The other advantage is also that the costs are not very high and there are options to suit all budgets. Zimbabwe also has the advantage of being English spoken with all people extremely polite and service oriented. All in all its a great place to visit for safaris and an experience closer to nature.

Zim has some fantastic spots, Matusadona, Hwange, Mana Pools, Chimanimani. Some Americans, used to the advertising of a Kenyan or Tanzanian safari, might be a little disappointed, but the connoisseur will be rewarded.

We would have rated Zimbabwe higher if we hadn't just come from a 5 star experience at three separate camps in Botswana. Also we thought Victoria Falls was overrated. We scheduled two days there - one would have been enough. Flying over the falls on our way back to Victoria Falls airport from Mana Pools was breathtaking - much better than seeing the Falls on the ground.
