Western Zimbabwe

Travel to Western Zimbabwe – Zambezi, Victoria Falls & Hwange

Western Zimbabwe is the region through which most travellers will spend time whilst on safari in Zimbabwe. Many of the ‘big names’ are located here, including Lake Kariba, Matusadona National Park, Chizarira National Park, Hwange National Park.

For the majority though, it is Victoria Falls, Zambezi National Park and the Zambezi River which are the major, almost unavoidable attractions. Many safari itineraries pass between the borders of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Namibia and Botswana – with Victoria Falls acting as a hub for travellers – a fabled meeting place – with a whole host of exciting activities on offer.

  • Take your pick from a mind-boggling array of activity pursuits whilst at Victoria Falls – from helicopter flips over the falls to elephant-back rides.
  • Enjoy a few days big game-viewing in Hwange National Park and splash out on the comfort of a traditional wildlife lodge.
  • For a thrilling Zimbabwean safari holiday, combine the parks of Hwange, Chizarira and Matusadona, then boat on Lake Kariba.
