While the mention of a safari might bring up images of jeeps traveling in the vast savanna, the reality is that a Zimbabwe safari is a mix of diverse experiences waiting to be seen. 

From thrilling night drives to serene canoe safaris gliding past hippos and elephants, Zimbabwe offers a safari experience like no other. So, buckle up as we share fun activities to do on a Zimbabwe safari.

Night drives – where chances of seeing rare creatures like the porcupine or aardvark are higher. Feel the thrill of the unknown as the sounds of the night come alive around you, with the chance to encounter elusive predators such as leopards and hyenas on the hunt.

Victoria Falls – one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls makes for thrilling water activities standing at a solid 1.7km-wide wall of water falling more than 100m. Locals refer to it as Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), a term that accurately captures the overwhelming sense of being engulfed in the roaring sound and mist while standing close by.

Canoe safaris – these offer a unique perspective, allowing you to glide silently along tranquil waterways with the sun casting a golden glow upon the landscape. Keep your eyes peeled for hippos and the stealthy movements of crocodiles as you navigate these pristine waterways.

Elephant-back safaris – for those seeking a more intimate wildlife encounter to connect with these gentle giants on their own terms. Experience the sheer wonder of riding atop these majestic creatures in Victoria Falls National Park and remain in close contact as you feed and interact with them in their natural habitat.

Horseback safaris – offer an exciting way to explore the African plains, allowing you to immerse yourself fully in the sights, sounds, and sensations of the wilderness as you gallop across open savanna.
