Travel to three areas of Zimbabwe focusing on two World Heritage sites, Mana Pools and Matobo Hills. You are staying in smaller accommodations that we feel will offer some of our most intimate guiding experiences as they are all owner-run.
The unique trip combines magnificent ecological surroundings coupled with the nature of the local communities around Matobo and Hwange. A VolunTourism trip implies that there is a tourism element combined with local communities, conservation projects and a traditional safari.
Victoria Falls is approximately 5600 feet wide, twice the height of Niagara Falls, and one and one half times as wide. It is divided into five separate waterfalls: Devil's Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Rainbow Falls and Eastern Cataract, ranging in height from 200-355 feet.
We have been supporting the Children in the Wilderness Community project for over 8 years where you are based outside Hwange National Park at Ziga School, Zimbabwe. Your time is spent assisting in the classroom teaching English, enhancing the computer curriculum, and helping with school projects like building education & health facilities in and around the local community. A perfect place to spend a few days volunteering with family and friends.
Spend a week in Mana Pools participating with the Bushlife Conservancy. Donate your time to record elephant sightings and perhaps track wild dog, supporting their ongoing work with the Painted Dog Research program.
On our Mother Africa Voluntourism trip to Zimbabwe, you will spend 8 days on this project which arises from the truly magnificent ecological surroundings. The community project will be spent helping out in the villages, schools and orphanage near Matobo Hills, Bulawayo. Zimbabwe is also a country rich in wildlife and a further few days will be spent in the conservation field of Hwange National Park.
Zimbabwe has excellent and well-maintained parks and reserves. Many safari camps offer high-quality personalized guiding, and the country boasts the greatest variety of methods to view wildlife in Africa. You can view game by open vehicle during the day and at night, walk with a licensed guide in all game parks and take boating excursions; other activities include canoeing, kayaking and white- water rafting on the Zambezi River. Accommodations vary from small lodges to fixed tented camps, mobile tented safaris and remote wilderness houseboats.
