Why Travel To Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe is a land-locked Southern African country. It
is about the same size as California. The country is blessed
with fertile soils, mineral wealth and wonderful scenery.
Two major rivers form its northern and southern boundaries.
The great Zambezi River cuts along its northern frontier,
while the more languid Limpopo forms the southern border
with South Africa. It is in the wilder and peaceful northern
parks that we concentrate our safari operations. The Zambezi
has an exceptional variety of wonderful scenery as well
as one of the world’s natural wonders ~ Victoria Falls.
The National Parks along the Zambezi are legendary. Mana
Pools and Matusadona are located on the floodplains of Africa’s
Great Rift Valley and offer extraordinary game viewing.
Along the Botswana border, the easternmost tongues of the
Kalahari sands creep into the country and mix with the teak
forests of the interior. Desert adapted animals live in
the same area as woodland species. Hwange National Park
is home to some of Southern Africa’s last great Elephant,
Buffalo and Sable herds. The Linkwasha/Makalolo concession
within Hwange is a truly wild area where animals have no
restrictions and can migrate to and from. This area also
has Zimbabwe’s best summer game viewing. Recently,
Zimbabwe has been much in the news. Nonetheless, the private
camps used by TREKS are filled with experienced Africa travelers,
who know that it is during these times that one gets the
finest wildlife experiences, at the best prices. Victoria
Falls and the northern parks are safe and still offer one
of the best wildlife experiences in Africa today. If one
ever doubted that well-planned tourism was Africa’s
best conservator, Zimbabwe will remove all such doubts.
Zimbabwe’s northern parks are vibrant and thriving
in a depressed economy because just enough travelers are
visiting these parks and helping to ensure that their animals
are well protected. Conservation in Zimbabwe needs tourism
now more than at any other time.
