5 River trips to take across National Parks in Zimbabwe
Rivers provide some of the best wildlife🦅 watching around—and some adrenaline-fueled recreation, too🧗♂️.
Here are🔥🔥 5 of the best river trips to take across parks in Zimbabwe.
1. ZAMBEZI RIVER (Victoria Falls National Park)
The Zambezi is the fourth longest river in Africa.
The Vic Falls National Park is in the Upper section of the river.
This is where tour operators run lots of exciting activities including kayaking, canoe trips and river cruises.⠀⠀⠀
2. ZAMBEZI RIVER ( Mana Pools National Park)
The Mana Pools are in the Middle section of the ‘great river’ – Zambezi about 440 km from Victoria Falls.
This middle zone of the Zambezi river supports one of the most important wilderness areas in Africa.
Exquisite canoe safaris, magnificent camps and encounters with Hippos can be experienced here.
3.SAVE & RUNDE RIVER (Gonarezhou National Park)
Gonarezhou National Park is the second largest game reserve in the country.
The park straddles the Save and Runde Rivers and their confluence/floodplain in the north.
The towering Chilojo Cliffs form a backdrop to the Runde River and are visible from 50 kilometres away.
The park is home to the rare nyala antelope as well as a host of other antelope species, and all the big game associated with a dry, lowland area.
4 PUNGWE RIVER ( Honde Valley near Nyanga National Park).
Is one of the country’s best fishing and white water rafting locations.
Pungwe river is a tourist attraction in the scenic Honde Valley which lies adjacently to Mount Inyangani and Nyanga National Park.
Honde Valley is one of the premier birding destinations in Zimbabwe and offers a wide range of species difficult to find in most other parts of the region.
5. MTSHELELE RIVER VALLEY ( Matobo National Park)
The Mtshelele valley is home to the Mtshelele dam which in our opinion, is a scenic hidden gem with picnic and camping facilities available.
Located in the Matobo National Park, the valley constitutes part of a landscape with a stunning Panorama of constantly changing Granite Hills.
