Zimbabwe always enchants as black and white rhinos elegantly move past your safari vehicle, hippos emerge upriver from Victoria Falls, and zebras wander past as you admire ancient San rock art. Home to far more than the Big Five, Zimbabwe is Africa’s often overlooked gem as the country is packed full of unique experiences and the ambiance of authentic Africa. Exploring the highlights on this 2-week safari and you will uncover one of the world’s most evocative travel destinations.
Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve – The Big Five and the Little Six
The wildlife of Malilangwe comes in all shapes and sizes. The Big Five are usually at the top of most safari wishlists and it does not take long to spot them in their realm, but there is so much more. Eagles and owls will soar overhead, a pack of wild dogs will provide one of Africa’s most elusive sights, and it will not be long before you can identify the park’s little six antelopes. On the northern boundary of The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, this compact private reserve will ease you into your safari experience. There is a lot to discover, yet you will not need long and bumpy journeys to find it all. After arriving on a light aircraft from Harare, you will check into your luxury lodge and find a procession of animals in the lake below. An afternoon game drive will then provides an idyllic introduction to the wild animals of Zimbabwe.
