Join us on a Wildlife Safari in Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana. Enjoy four unique and luxurious Safari Lodges, and take-in the glory and splendor of the Zambezi river, Victoria Falls and its surroundings.
We spent many seasons working as full time guides on the Zambezi River and have expert knowledge of the river and the surrounding area. August and September are some the best months to see game and experience the Zambezi as it is the end of the dry season and all of the animals come down to the banks of the river to drink, swim and frolic in the shallows. Also, the bush has been either eaten or has died down, so seeing the animals is much easier. (In the wet season there is so much fresh green foliage that the animals hide in the thicket or scatter to drinking holes hidden away).
Zimbabwe has all the infrastructure of a modern country and has a highly developed and protected national park system. This has allowed the wildlife to thrive and the elephant herds of Botswana and Zimbabwe are among the largest and most protected of Africa. The game viewing in Zimbabwe is simply the best, and you will not be overrun by the herds of tourists often found in Kenya!
