Zimbabwe lies a short 2 hour flight north of Johannesburg. Its really a 2 or 3 night stay that most Kosher guests focus their time on. The key attraction is the famous Victoria Falls.
Despite its political challenges in the east and central regions, Victoria Falls lies in the far western corner of the country, and remains popular fly in and out location for tourists.
The many hotels deliver a great 2 to 3-day experience with sunset boat cruise, “flight of angels” helicopter flips over the falls, guided 4 x 4 trips into the neighbouring national parks, and excellent cultural village and African market experiences, within close proximity to the falls.
By far the simplest way to do a luxury Kosher safari in this region is either premade meals if you are a couple, or family travelling, or opt for Parev meals made on site. Meat imports are becoming more and more challenging, and the resultant limitations at the border, mean its safest to avoid this headache altogether, and go without Fleischik for 48 hours.
Just south of Victoria Falls lies Hwange National Park, which is a 2- 3 hour drive to some of the better-known luxury kosher safari lodges in Zimbabwe, or a short 20 – 30 minutes charter flight. Notable for its famous large elephant herds, with an estimated total population of over 30 000.
Wildlife that congregate around the waterholes make it a great iconic park, close enough to the Vic Falls area, to stitch onto an extended trip to the area.
Popular areas in Zimbabwe include: Hwange National Park, Lake Kariba, Mana Pools, Southern Zimbabwe, Matopos Hills And Malilangwe.
