ZIMBABWE WITH A&K

Interested in top-notch safaris? Then the fact that Zimbabwe is recovering from recent political instability and sending a strong signal to the tourist radar has to be good news. The country's reputation for stellar game viewing is based on dramatic and diverse game parks, often prolific wildlife and excellent guides - something that places A&K at the head of the pack. And herd. And flock.

Our guides are handpicked for their remarkable specialist knowledge and passion to understand and explain the wonders of southern Africa's wilderness. They're one crucial part of our large, experienced team that, over four decades, has provided premium travel in the region with everything from 24-hour emergency contact, seamless ground operations and long-established local relationships allowing 'insider access' off-limits to other visitors, including a behind the scenes tour of Victoria Falls Bridge.

Take an Abercrombie & Kent luxury safari to Zimbabwe in 2014 and you'll discover it offers more than traditional land-based game drives. Far more. You can also encounter its animals on foot or from a canoe - we guarantee you'll never forget paddling close to feeding elephants. Absolutely ever.

The Zambezi River, flowing along the northern border, is the country's key artery. In the Northwest it cascades over Victoria Falls with a peak-flow over 1.7km wide and 100m high, spawning its descriptive African name, Mosi-ay-Tunya, The Smoke That Thunders. The gorge is now an adrenaline hotspot with bungee jumping, white water rafting and microlighting.

As it flows east, the river enters the vast expanse of Kariba Lake, its shallows speckled with eerily beautiful forests of dead trees. As well as stays in floating lodges and river cruisers, the lake provides some of the best tiger fishing on the planet. Matusadona National Park on its southern shore offers superb safaris with large numbers of lion and over 240 bird species. The Lower Zambezi then reaches heavenly Mana Pools, with wonderful dry season game viewing.

Away from the river, there's the famous Hwange, the country largest national park, with over 100 mammals and massive herds of elephant, while Matobo Hills to the south, offers walking safaris in a poetic landscape frescoed with kopjes of red-tinted boulders.

Yes, Zimbabwe's back and with A&K it's all possible.

Guest Testimonial

My wife, Cindy, and I travelled with A&K this September. Saying that we were “very satisfied” would be an understatement. I did not feel that the survey I received provided a way for me to say how satisfied we are and to commend some individuals … hence, this email.
