Zimbabwe Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • Elephants in Hwange National Park

Why is Zimbabwe considered a top bucket list destination?

A classic safari destination, Zimbabwe offers dramatic landscapes from the savannah grasslands in the central and western regions to the exotic rainforests around the eastern highlands, and drier woodlands toward the northwest where the mighty Zambezi River lies. Boasting two UNESCO world heritage sites, Victoria Falls and Mana Pools, as well as Hwange National Park, home to one of the largest elephant populations in the world, Zimbabwe is a haven for travelers looking for those lesser-known places and undiscovered gems, as well as those looking for something a little off-the-beaten-track.

What are the top bucket list activities on a Zimbabwe vacation?

Victoria Falls is a must-see on any trip to Zimbabwe. The locals refer to the Falls as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which means The Smoke That Thunders. A walking tour of the Falls offers numerous spectacular vantage points along the width of the Falls while walking through the permanent rainforest which flanks them. Feel and listen to the spray and thunderous noise as millions of litres of water tumble into the narrow gorges below. A visit to Hwange National Park, the largest in Zimbabwe is also a must-see. The breadth of wildlife species is outstanding. Over 100 species of mammals reside in the Park, close to 400 species of birds can be seen, and around 40,000 elephants call this Park home.
