ZIMBABWE SAFARI HOLIDAYS

Zimbabwe is an unbeatable destination for adventure travel and wildlife safaris. From the iconic Victoria Falls to the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, this country has so much to offer. Its game reserves are among the most abundant and beautiful in Africa, with many unusual safari experiences unavailable anywhere else. Combined with rich local culture and a long colonial past this African gem should be at the top of everyone's list of places to visit.

Our overland truck based tours visit the most iconic sights including the mighty Victoria Falls, Matopos and Hwange National Parks and the mysterious ruins at Great Zimbabwe.

TOUR REVIEWS

Excellent from the initial planning to every step along the way on the trip! Worry free in every way! Islam, Hussein and Mahmoud were the greatest! Please check out my review on Trip Advisor! FIve stars from this girl!
Excellent

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

Anthony has been amazing throughout my planning of my tour. He has been very quick in replying to my emails and always answering with everything I wanted to know. I look forward to hopefully planning my next trip through him next year!

There was a lot of communication from the beginning. The encounters staff was very responsive and the tour guide was great and very accommodating. Encounters was also able to help me with last minute changes to my itinerary while I was on the trip.

Anthony has been a pleasure to work with and when he is not available, other members of the team respond in a timely manner. I have booked a total of 6 trips since December 2013 and plan to book more to fill my bucket list.
