Join us on a holiday to Zimbabwe

Dramatic landscapes brimming with unbelievable wildlife, and some truly special experiences just waiting to be had: Zimbabwe is a dream safari destination.

The landlocked African country is laden with the sort of natural highlights that belong in paradise, from the surging, powerful Victoria Falls to the sprawling Chobe National Park, where you can go on a safari like no other, taking in majestic creatures like elephants and hippos. And, of course, there are sunset cruises and guided nature walks to add a bit of gilded luxury to this intrepid holiday.

WIth Newmarket Holidays, your entire Zimbabwe safari experience will be planned out so you can focus on this once-in-a-lifetime trip. Your accommodation is pre-booked, with five-star safari lodges giving you a taste of opulence in the middle of the wilderness, and the sumptuous meals that are prepared for you will linger as long in the memory as the incredible sights you’ll see on your Zimbabwe safari holiday. 

Whether you’re excited to sail down the Zambezi River, view the majestic Victoria Falls from a helicopter, or simply be awed by some of the most diverse animal life in the world, a Zimbabwe safari holiday is for you.

Frequently asked Zimbabwe safari questions

Here are a few questions you might have.

  • Zimbabwe is an excellent place for safari, giving travellers the opportunity to see the Big 5, as well as countless bird species and other incredible creatures  like crocodiles.

  • Although Zimbabwe often has a temperate climate, it’s best to wear light, long-sleeved and long-trousered items while on safari to shield you from the sun and protect you from bugs.

  • Hwange National Park is the largest safari park in Zimbabwe, and is roughly the size of the Bahamas at just over 8,500sqm. With that said, Chobe National Park, which you’ll visit on your Newmarket Holidays tour, is only a bit smaller at around 7,200sqm.

  • Yes, you can see the Big 5 (lions, leopards, black rhinoceroses, African bush elephants, and African buffalo) in ZImbabwe

  • June is the best time to try and see the Big 5 in ZImbabwe, as the dry season means watering holes have dried up and animals have to congregate. Any time in the northern summer months works well, though.

  • You need to spend at least four days on safari in Zimbabwe thanks to the sheer number of animals and sights.

  • You can fly directly into Victoria Falls airport for your ZImbabwe safari
