As Zimbabwe opens its borders to international travellers, we discuss the positive impact visitors make at a local level by choosing safari operators that support grassroot community and conservation initiatives.

Join us as we highlight the experiences available to our guests, and the consequent benefit it brings to local communities, wildlife, and the preservation of local ecosystems.

Additionally, we shall address the Covid-19 protocols required for entry into Zimbabwe as we invite travellers to visit the destination and have a meaningful safari experience.
