The history of Zimbabwe is deeply intertwined with its indigenous people, with evidence of early human life dating back over a million years. The ruins of Great Zimbabwe allude to a glorious ancient civilization. While many visitors to Zimbabwe are understandably captivated by its diverse wildlife, we encourage travelers to also immerse themselves in the country’s rich cultural heritage. This broader perspective offers a more comprehensive understanding of Zimbabwe’s unique character.

Zimbabwe’s commitment to conservation is both strategic and sustainable, marrying environmental responsibility with socio-economic development. Home to the Communal Areas Management Programme for Indigenous Resources, commonly referred to as CAMPFIRE. Initiated in the 1980s, CAMPFIRE is an innovative conservation model that engages local communities in the management and utilization of local natural resources, including wildlife. Revenue generated from tourism activities within community lands is channeled back to these communities, thus incentivizing the protection of wildlife and their habitats.

Best time to visit Zimbabwe

The best time to visit Zimbabwe is during the dry season, from April to October, when wildlife viewing is optimal and the landscape is more navigable. It’s worth noting that some safari camps do close during the rainy season due to access issues, although this period offers lush landscapes and exceptional bird-watching opportunities, adding a different dimension to Zimbabwe’s diverse ecosystems.
