Zimbabwe has long been one of Africa’s top safari destinations. Zimbabwe is a land-locked country surrounded by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the west, Zambia to the north and Mozambique to the east. Victoria Falls is found in Zimbabwe, also knows Mosi-oa-Tunya (the mist that thunders). Victoria Falls; at twice the height of the Niagara falls, and is one of the seven wonders of the world. The Zambezi River defines its northern border. Zimbabwe consists mostly of Savannah and forest. The hunting areas in Zimbabwe are easily accessible from either Bulawayo in the South or Victoria Falls in the north. When hunting in Zimbabwe, many clients include a trip to the falls.
Our hunting takes place in Matetsi. This is in the North of Zimbabwe and located about 55 km west of Hwange and approximately 50 km from the Victoria Falls airport. The hunting area is communal land adjacent to Hwange and is approximately 120 000 to 150 000 hectares. The village started as a railway siding and took its name from the nearby Matetsi River.
Tiger Fishing is at its best in Zimbabwe. A Tiger fishing trip can be arranged as the Zambezi River flows along Zim’s southern border.
