More about 'Discover Zimbabwe'

Global tourism to Zimbabwe is on the rebound. After years of low-key interest, international tourists are rediscovering the vast array of wildlife, adventure, and cultural tourism opportunities that Zimbabwe offers in abundance. Recent history, including the COVID-19-induced global tourism shutdown as well as political and economic difficulties at home, has taken its toll on tourism numbers but at Seolo Africa we believe that now is the right time to regrow an industry that is critical to both conservation and job creation in Zimbabwe.

We will explain that part of Zimbabwe’s attraction is that most of its national parks are mirrored by conservation areas directly across the borders in Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, and South Africa, a feature which greatly enhances the conservation status and tourism potential for these areas. This is encapsulated within the concept of transboundary conservation, a process well advanced throughout the region.

Ecosystems and wildlife don’t pay much attention to political boundaries, and we’ll talk about how the Zambezi River, which is of huge importance to conservation and the well-being of people all along its 2574 km course, rises in Angola and flows through, or touches on, five other countries including Zimbabwe and Zambia.  Elephants in Western Zimbabwe ignore borders and walk hundreds of kilometres into neighbouring countries and birds, well of course they are birds, but some found in Zimbabwe for part of the year migrate to northern Europe and even eastern Siberia.

All of this helps make Zimbabwe such a fascinating destination and we aim to help provide in-depth information that enhances people’s understanding of the country and the region.
