Hwange National Park, Matopos and Greater Mapungubwe Trans Frontier Conservation Area
Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is usually the reason folks go to Zimbabwe, but it shouldn’t be the only reason. The country continues to have domestic problems but those problems will not hinder nor inhibit your safari experience in this wonderful country. South of the Falls you will find Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s flagship park. The “Big Five” are found in residence there. This Park is Zimbabwe’s equivalent to Kruger Park in South Africa.
Farther South still, outside Bulawayo, is Matopos National Park home to a large rhino herd and bushman rock art.
At the very bottom of the country located on the Limpopo River, which forms the border with South Africa, is Sentinel Ranch. This property is part of the Greater Mapungubwe Trans Frontier Area incorporating three countries, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and South Africa.
Price Key to Zimbabwe Properties:
These prices are per person for full board and in some cases include the bar (Domestic liquor, beer and wine), and is a guideline only, they are priced in US dollars The cost differences are usually driven by the number of staff per guest, the amount of food and wine choices, and the room and camp amenities such as individual plunge pools and spas. They all will feature excellent game viewing.
In order to distinguish between properties we have rated them for amenities, style, level of service, and ambiance. This is to give you a reference of how we think they rate against the others properties listed for a particular destination. They are all lovely properties that we have stayed in, so there is no bad or wrong choice.
The more †s we give a property, the higher it ranks against other properties for that category and is useful only for property comparisons. This is not the same as a “Star Rating” system for properties and hotels given out by Tourism Organizations or Government Hotel rating services.
