As the dust settles on years of political upheaval for the country, once again Zimbabwe is back in the game and becoming the safari destination of choice. September is a popular month for safaris, the game viewing is exceptional at this time of year as wildlife congregate around the watering holes, herds of elephants gathering as the sun sets over the plains.
We recommend staying at the Bumi Hills Safari Lodge on Lake Kariba. This famous and beloved hotel first opened in 1975 and since been renovated and now gleams with a new level of luxurious comfort. We particularly love the breathtaking infinity pool with incredible views of the lake beyond and the new premium spa. Another highlight is the lodge’s own private aircraft, making access from Victoria Falls Airport a breeze.
Other stunning safari include The Land of Giants at Hwange National Park, great to spot leopard, The Biblical Land at Matobo National Park where you can spot highly endangered black and white rhino, or The Golden Child at Mana Pools National Park where you can see endangered wild dog or ‘painted wolves’.
