From the verdant sparkling waterways of the Okavango Delta to the arid expanse of the great Kalahari, Botswana is a land of great contrast. This precious, peaceful country offers a plethora of luxury accommodation as well as exhilarating mobile camping and tranquil house boat accommodation.
Many visitors only venture as far as Victoria Falls, choosing to do the safari part of their trip in a neighbouring country, however those that do spend a little longer will be rewarded with huge elephant numbers in Hwange National Park, or scenically stunning boat excursions along the Zambezi River through Mana Pools. Walking safaris are a big deal in Zimbabwe and the guiding is excellent, choose from half-day walks to longer hikes over several days. The huge structures of 11th Century Great Zimbabwe Ruins are the largest ancient monument south of the Sahara.
With Lake Kariba in the North West, the Zambezi River running along the Northern border and the Limpopo River flowing along the south of the country Zimbabwe is vibrant and colourful with fertile lands that support a huge diversity of wildlife and birdlife. Land locked and sharing borders with Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia and South Africa, Zimbabwe is ideally located to include in an itinerary with any (or all!) of its neighbours.
