9 Days Luxury Fly in Zimbabwe Wildlife Safari
Zimbabwe is a fantastic safari destination at any time in the year, but the best times to visit are from June through September. This coincides with the dry season, which makes it an excellent time to see animals congregating around water holes. The prominent wild fauna includes African buffalo, African bush elephant, black rhinoceros, southern giraffe, African leopard, lion, plains zebra, and several antelope species. The introduction of the Wildlife Conservation Act of 1960 resulted in checking the loss of wildlife in Zimbabwe, since the 1960s.
