So now you’re probably wondering: how do I plan a trip Zimbabwe? Which destinations are must-see? Where in Zimbabwe has the best wildlife or opportunities for big five? Can I do luxury safari in Zimbabwe, or can I do it on a budget? Below I’ll break down each must-see region of Zimbabwe to help determine if it’s right for you. I’ll then share our recommended itineraries for each type of traveler, as well as my own personal pictures to help give you a better feel for each lodge.
I just returned from the Pantanal and was greatly impressed by the organization of the tour, and most importantly of all, with the destination itself. Although “site tour” may not be the most accurate name for this trip; it was more like Boot Camp! Up at the crack of dawn (or shortly thereafter), early morning hikes, afternoon hikes, swimming in frigid rivers where piranhas, alligators and anacondas lurk, canoeing, biking and horseback riding….not to mention falling into (very comfortable and cozy) beds by 10 pm. Very unlike my normal more bohemian ways.
