Luxury Zimbabwe Safari Lodges A curated selection of Zimbabwe's best lodges

As an all-time classic safari destination, Zimbabwe has many outstanding luxury safari lodges. Camps overlooking pans and waterholes, lodges facing the Zambezi and hotels where you can see the spray of Victoria Falls, in Zimbabwe you can have it all.

Zimbabwe naturally relishes its reputation as one of the original safari destinations. However, it’s clear from our hand-picked selection of luxury Zimbabwe safari lodges that this is a country that doesn’t rest on its laurels.

Rather, Zimbabwe continues to offer innovative and exciting safari accommodation options. Although safaris here are deeply rooted in tradition, innovation is warmly embraced.

Many luxury Zimbabwe safari lodges are sited to take advantage of the presence of water, and the wildlife it inevitably attracts. Downstream of Victoria Falls, the Zambezi takes a more leisurely course – perfect for canoeing – with its pools and meanders offering exceptional wildlife viewing.

Away from the Zambezi, in areas such as Hwange National Park, the focus shifts to waterholes and their magnetic hold over thirsty herds. Hides and viewing platforms offer new perspectives on the timeless struggle for survival, while guided walking safaris – long a Zimbabwean speciality – allow for more personal encounters.

Of course, the country’s most dramatic expression of the allure of water is Victoria Falls, and staying in the eponymous town involves a night or two in a rather different type of accommodation.

The colonial-era hotels offer a sense that time has stood still, allowing the elegance of a bygone age to persevere. As a counterpoint to luxury Zimbabwe safari lodges, these grand old dames have lost none of their power to charm.
