Africa + Indian Ocean


    A chance to travel with the best guides in Africa ….

    With the magnificent Victoria Falls, large wildlife reserves and great swathes of untamed wilderness, Zimbabwe offers much to inspire the visitor. 

    This magnificent country is opening up again and many of the fantastic guides and owners who sought work elsewhere in the world are returning.

    With a strict 5% pass rate, Zimbabwe has always been renowned for having the best-qualified guides in Africa, which to us is the crucial element of any safari experience. It is wonderful that so many have returned home to walk with visitors in Mana Pools and show them local hides in Hwange National Park.

    Just wait until you see one of our favourite guides communicate with the elephants through a series of clicks and sounds. You will leave knowing you have had one of the most authentic safari experiences possible.

    The following is a description of one of two incredible days at John’s Camp, Mana Pools, Zimbabwe: “If you had to describe heaven, as a place where humans and animals could come together, without confrontation, then it would be Mana Pools…”. David, my guide at John’s Camp.
    cazenove+loyd was born in Africa and we believe that the African safari is a trip that everyone should take at least once in their lives. No two safaris are ever the same, but to ensure that the holiday is as memorable as it should be, you need an expert.
    Nature’s cycles and rhythms can vary dramatically depending on when you travel and nowhere is this more apparent than in Africa. Our Destination Experts, who have lived, worked and travelled extensively around Africa, can advise you where to go when.

    Area in Foucs

    At over 5,000 square kilometres, Gonarezhou is the second largest national park in Zimbabwe, but is still largely undiscovered by the outside world. Aptly translating as ‘ Land of the Elephants’, in this remote corner of Zimbabwe, you’ll find some of the largest in the country.
