Wonderful experience, rough around the edges
Overall rating

My wife and I are Americans in our late 20s who spent a week in July 2019 in Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park.

Overall, we had a wonderful time. Everything was very safe, the people are quite friendly and helpful, and the wildlife and falls were spectacular. Travel here takes a bit of planning, however, as cash and fuel are in short supply and power cuts are somewhat frequent (twice during our stay). In this part of the country I wouldn't worry about safety, I would just make sure to make as many arrangements ahead of time as possible.

Victoria Falls spectacular. Our trip to Zimbabwe was limited to Victoria Falls. An enjoyable stay with good eating options. River cruise was excellent.

A walking safari was a first for us and gave a very different perspective of Hwange.
Overall rating

The numbers and diversity of the animals in Hwange was disappointing and definitely not comparable to the pre-independence period.
The bush camp was well organised and comfortable.
Our guide, Scott, was knowledgeable and interesting.
Unfortunately we hit a hot spell which made activities in the middle of the day difficult.

Overall rating

Everything we expected and more, especially our guide Leo who was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. Weather was a bit wet, but it was the rainy season, and our guide was prepared. Food was great as was the camp staff.

Victoria Falls and safarias make Zimbabwe a wonderful vacation destination !We
Overall rating

We enjoyed very nice tour guides at Victoria Falls! We were there during the dry season, but Falls were still not to be missed! The weather was quite warm in September making the walking tour a challenge for my husband, but we were very comfortable in our accommodations at Stanley and Livingstone. The lodge itself was rather posh, with beautiful wood furnishings. Food was delicious with several choices each night and staff was very nice!

In Hwange, accommodations were not too opulent nor too rustic. We stayed at the Ivory Lodge. It had a safari “feel” with all needed amenities in our private building overlooking a watering hole. We sat on our deck to watch wild animals come out of the bush to drink. We felt as though the staff’s only priority was to be sure our needs were met and that we had a great time. It was not “just a job” to them. They went above and beyond. The camp director, Jamie is indeed a special hostess I hated to say goodbye to.
Safari guides shared their vast knowledge of the bush and wildlife with us. They tracked the animals and communicated with each other to give us the best viewing possible. We especially liked Jeb.
Food was very good and my special dietary needs have never been catered to as well as at The Ivory Lodge.
Everything was perfect, except we would have liked to have seen more cats. The bush however is not a zoo!

Although we saw quite a lot of wildlife, we did hope to see more but it seemed pretty quiet at the time we visited.

It seemed harder to find animals as we were driving around. We did see a lot at the two watering holes we went to.

For plus I can write that park is almost empty. You can trade the price because there is not so many people. But if you would like to see many different animals you can be disappointed. In Zimbabwe every park has something different, so you have to choosen what is interesting for you.

Mana has no dearth of wildlife, and it ticks all the boxes as a great safari destination
