Answer the Call of the Wild in Beautiful Zimbabwe

Make life-long friendships and experience the magic of one of Africa’s most breathtaking countries

Widely regarded as one of the finest safari destinations in the world, Zimbabwe boasts an extraordinary array of diverse ecosystems and natural habitats that play host to some of Africa’s most well-organised and expertly managed national parks.

 

One of the last true African wilderness areas remaining, the country is not only home to one of the world’s seven Natural Wonders – the incredible Victoria Falls – but it also offers spectacular scenery and unrivalled game-viewing opportunities.

 

Nestled between two of Africa’s mightiest rivers – the Limpopo in the south and the Zambezi in the North - Zimbabwe truly has to be seen to be believed.

Visit the breath-taking Victoria Falls during your trip

If you’re looking for a little more information on the activities mentioned, here are some details we hope you’ll find useful:

Victoria Falls

Located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, Victoria Falls is one of nature’s proudest spectacles. Local people have christened the falls Mosi-oa-tunya, “the smoke that thunders,” thanks to the saturating, smoke-like mist created by the sheer volume of water plummeting thunderously into the Zambezi River gorge below.
 
Almost 1.7 km wide, the falls were named after Queen Victoria by the famous explorer David Livingstone. This jaw-dropping UNESCO World Heritage Site is not to be missed.
Helicopter “Flight of Angels”
 
It is so named because David Livingstone famously wrote that Victoria Falls offered “Scenes so lovely they must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.” This short but spectacular excursion offers panoramic viewing and once-in-a-lifetime photographic opportunities from every seat.
 
It only takes 30 seconds after take-off for the helicopters to reach the spectacular scenery of the Zambezi River, meaning they make the most of every minute of your 12-13-minute flight. 

Dinner on the Zambezi 

Zambezi Reflections is a gorgeous floating restaurant offering a premier dining experience on the mighty Zambezi. Your excursion includes a sumptuous, 4-course meal, freshly prepared on board, and thoughtfully paired drinks, all enjoyed as the setting sun paints the African bush and life-giving river with a glorious colour palette found nowhere else in nature.

"This was a dream trip I had thought about for years and somehow they managed to exceed what I had hoped for. Could not have asked for more."

"An outstanding experience with Wayfairer, Cat and Juan helped to organise, and manage, an amazing safari for a group of six.

The highest recommendation is that we plan to use Wayfairer again and again!"

"This was my second trip with Wayfairer - my first (to Africa) was so amazing, I was worried that I would be disappointed.....not a chance. Once again, the itinerary, the guides, the little touches, were superb. I am already thinking about what trip I will have Wayfairer plan next! For anyone trying to decide where to go - Peru was absolutely amazing! It may be one of the most under-rated countries. Machu Pichu was breathtaking, but there was also so much more to see and do....let Wayfairer take you on amazing journey!"
