Zimbabwe Safaris – The vibrant heart of Africa. A flood of primal energy. Spectacle that surpasses the imagination. Principality of the heroic. Preserve of the unexpected. A living memory to lost civilizations. A journey into wonder. A confrontation with nature at its rawest and most profound. Privy to the private enclaves of the colonial era. Enshrouded in majesty. Glorified by unabashed scenic extravagance. Epitomised by the thundering spectacle of Mosi-oa-Tunya, the thrusting elbow of the mighty Zambezi. Playground and frontier for the adventurer, the sportsman, and nature’s own admiration societies. Where sorties are made through the gauntlet of unique attractions that spell out the phonetics of Africa. An experience that can be savoured, remembered, but never forgotten.
