Accommodation in Lowveld, Zimbabwe

Land of the Silhouetted Baobab

The hot-dry Lowveld of south-eastern Zimbabwe is the Africa of poster images; red earth and silhouetted baobabs against a fiery sunset sky. Granite domes dwarf the landscape over private game farms, sugar-cane plantations and several National Parks sprawl over the extensive plains. The region is home to and one of the country’s best known World Heritage sites of Great Zimbabwe. This spectacular historic site is the largest ancient stone structure in sub-Saharan Africa. The stone towers and the walled enclosures are relics of a powerful medieval African kingdom. Visitors may wander through the on-site museum, whilst the more adventurous can clamber through the Rocky Acropolis built into the granite boulders of the hill and wander through the Valley Enclosures.

Gonarezhou ‘The Place of the Elephants’, the second largest National Park in Zimbabwe, covering an area of over 500,000 hectares is found in the Lowveld. Here, the game-viewing opportunities are endless from 4x4 and horseback excursions, backpacking safaris and guided day walks.
