Safari in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s largest national park, Hwange, is home to some of southern Africa’s last great “tusker” elephants, in addition to massive buffalo and sable herds which plays an integral role in a network of southern African conservation areas. The large numbers of animals all year round – elephant, buffalo, sable, roan, giraffe, wildebeest, impala and even gemsbok – are followed by their predators: lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah, spotted hyaena.
The countries immense water systems in the North – Zambezi river, Lake Kariba and the Zambezi Valley, provide water all year round for the high concentrations of floura and fauna.

Climate:

Zimbabwe, lying north of the Tropic of Capricorn, is completely within the tropics but enjoys subtropical conditions because of its high average elevation.
Temperatures vary drastically throughout the country due to the diverse landscapes and altitudes, from summer months reaching as high as 40 C, and dropping dropping below zero during winter months.

Seasons:

Zimbabwe has 2 major seasons throughout the year.

May – November: Dry season, with cooler temperatures (although still getting rather warm toward the end of the year), offering great conditions to travel Zimbabwe

November  – April: Wet season, with higher temperatures  and the rains bringing the bush to life after a long dry season.
