The 5 Best Zimbabwe Tours and Experiences
Zimbabwe best 5 tours and experiences maybe a little out of reach for the time being, no thanks to COVID, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get nostalgic over some of our favourite spots the country has to offer.
We’re optimistic that the world will return to some semblance of normalcy. And when it does, we’re excited that domestic travel will be the first to rebound, not just in Zimbabwe but worldwide.
So while this is list is aimed a little more towards the locals – we’re hoping it’ll also be available to international tourists too.
Flights to and from Zimbabwe are starting up again, albeit slowly. If you’ll need a car rental for added independence, you can hire one with us.
No.3 Mana Pools
Definitely one of the best, if not the best safari one can take part in Zimbabwe. A truly magnificent area of beauty, so much so that BBC wildlife series Dynasties, from David Attenborough, filmed their fourth episode focusing on wild dogs.
The endangered carnivore, also known as the painted dog, is one of nature’s most efficient killers – scoring just above an 80% kill rate on their packs hunts. These extremely cute, unbelievably intelligent predators share the lay of the land with the area’s usual suspects: lions, crocodiles, nyati, elephants, hippos and many more.
Mana lands at number 3 only because of its seasonality. During the first 2 months and the last 2 months of the year, travel and wildlife viewing are impossible due to the rainy season and the resultant thick bush. That aside, it’s arguably the best safari spot in Zimbabwe.
No. 5 Chinhoyi Caves
Possibly the most hauntingly beautiful experience in Zimbabwe. The Chinhoyi Caves are a mysterious, breath-taking set of caves, situated north-west of Zimbabwe’s capital.
While Zimbabwe has some of the best safaris you can take part in Africa, this is an experience we simply couldn’t leave this off the list.
Chinhoyi Caves are steeped in tradition and mystery. It’s a hot-spot for technical scuba divers, as the depths of the pools within the caves can reach over 100 metres.
The water is crystal clear and maintains a temperature of about 20 degrees throughout the year – something that still has scientific analyses baffled to this day.
The caves form some of the most intricate tunnel systems in Zimbabwe. We think it’s definitely worth checking out if you have a free day or free weekend coming up on your calendar.
We want to hear from you!
That wraps up our The Best 5 Zimbabwe Tours and Experiences list.
There’s obviously loads more on offer, so keep your eye on this list as it will be updated in the future! If there’re any Zimbabwean destinations, safaris, tours and experiences you think we left out, leave us a comment and share your thoughts.
