Few safari destinations can ever hope to outshine Zimbabwe when it comes to a raw, authentic, and absolutely astonishing wildlife experience. We have visited Zimbabwe several times and know all its parks extremely well, from the incredible species and landscape diversity of Hwange National Park to Matusadona National Park on the shores of Lake Kariba – from the legendary and iconic Mana Pools National Park that caresses the mighty Zambezi to the magical confluence of the Save and Runde Rivers in Gonarezhou National Park and the stark boulders and prehistoric art of Matopos National Park… Suffice it to say that Zimbabwe does not lack for wondrous sights and sounds that make for a unique safari experience.
Our approach to Zimbabwe is a little different from the way we are approaching other safari countries so far. Our experience has shown that the absolutely best way to enjoy a safari in Zimbabwe is to go on a privately-guided safari with a high-quality, professional guide who will stay with you for the entire duration of your safari. To that end, Chalo Africa has partnered with some of the finest guides in Zimbabwe to bring you world-class safaris. Although we can certainly send guests to specific safari camps where they can avail of the services of the excellent guides located at that camp, we recommend that you go to Zimbabwe our way – the Chalo Way.
Now, privately-guided safaris are usually very expensive and normally out of reach for the average safari-goer. But because Chalo Africa has teamed up with a few of the best Zim-based guides in the business, you, too, can experience this luxury! Our guides can craft bespoke, exclusive safaris just for you (the more expensive option), or you can enjoy their fantastic guiding in small group safaris (4-6 people is ideal) at prices that are very reasonable once they are spread out over the group. The more expensive option could include private planes, whereas for the latter option, we can use charter flights to keep costs in check.
Whichever option you choose, do it sooner rather than later. Zimbabwe is quickly becoming an ‘open secret’ in the safari world, and there is a short period now where you will be able to experience a one-of-kind safari in remote areas that are sure to become very popular in just a few years.
