Hippos in Mana Pools

arrow pointing down

The home of Victoria Falls, hippo pools and incredible wildlife encounters

Spot crocodiles from a canoe, bag the Big Five, and visit the smoke that thunders on a tailor-made Zimbabwe safari.

It's nearly dawn out in the bush and as the mists begin to lift you become aware of the world around you. A lion roars in the distance, out hunting with the pride for a spot of breakfast, whilst a herd of buffalo lift their imperious heads in acknowledgement, continuing to munch their own. Today feels like the day you're going to spot the Big Five in Zimbabwe! Two fish eagles glide silently by overhead and your guide whispers that if you're ever lost in the bush, seeing one of these majestic birds is a good sign. It means there is water nearby. Yet you know you'll never be lost on a Zimbabwe safari. The guides here are so polite and friendly and know the bush like the backs of their hands.

Warming your hands around a steaming mug of coffee and feeling cosy wrapped up in a safari blanket, you feel privileged to be sharing this hidden part of Africa with the wildlife that lives here. The desk job seems a million miles away and you know you don't want to leave. Yet tomorrow brings more adventures, and you can't wait to try a canoe safari at Mana Pools and see who can spot the most hippos. Then there's a trip to see the thundering water at Victoria Falls where you'll be spending a couple of days at one of nature's greatest playgrounds. Perhaps you'll pluck up the courage to fly over the falls in a helicopter or microlight, or maybe you'll take a sunset steam train ride after an exciting day white water rafting.

You're beginning to realise that Zimbabwe is a land of incredible opportunities, and that you'll be dining out on tales of your adventures for years to come.

Best time to visit Zimbabwe.
