Zimbabwe: Ultimate Elephant Safari

Video by Boundless Journeys

Posted: January 18, 2018

Zimbabwe is one of Africa’s up-and-coming safari destinations, and in addition to a diverse range of incredible wildlife, Boundless Journeys discovers the ultimate in elephant viewing in Hwange National Park. Situated on Zimbabwe’s western border with Botswana, Hwange National Park has a blend of habitats that range from forests to the sands of the Kalahari Desert. This results in a variety of wild animals rarely found in one region — where lion, leopard, and wild dog are the often-sighted predators among huge herds of elephant, buffalo, and sable.

Incredible opportunities for photographing elephants and a wide diversity of other wildlife abound, from sundowners at Nehimba Seeps to a unique "look-up blind" near the famed Ngamo Plains. Or perhaps your passion lies in connecting with local people; from our incredible guides — Zimbabwe’s guides are widely recognized as some of the best in Africa — to local schoolchildren you’ll meet as you travel, each moment in Zimbabwe offers new perspectives on nature, conservation, and community. If diversity of adventure is what you seek, here in Zimbabwe you’ll find yourself on walks through the African bush, on game drives, feeling the spray of Victoria Falls, and on an optional paddle along the mighty Zambezi River.
