Zimbabwe is a great destination for Big 5 safaris. Elephant, lion and buffalo are seen on a regular basis, while rhino and leopard are present but rarely encountered. Hwange and Mana Pools offer a great diversity of wildlife, with great opportunities for spotting big game animals. Giraffe, zebra and wildebeest are also frequently spotted in the savannah plains. Look out for special sightings of the brown hyena, bat-eared fox and sable antelope.
