Discover what being a DreamTrips™ Member is all about on this Welcome DreamTrip to Selous, Zimbabwe! Your exciting getaway puts you in luxury accommodations amid northern Zimbabwe’s unspoiled back country to enjoy a wide range of activities at your leisure.

Choose from a variety of ways to explore the surrounding wilderness — or try them all! On land, experienced guides are available to take you on nature hikes, horseback riding and open-air game drives. And on-site canoes are the perfect way to witness some of the more dramatic wildlife interactions taking place on the river banks.

You will also have the chance to get up close and personal with 2 of the animal kingdom’s famous mascots: lions and elephants. The lion-den encounter is an exhilarating experience that lets you meet the king of the jungle with a trained handler. During the elephant interaction, take a photograph with the gentle giants, feed them and get firsthand insights from dedicated caregivers. Be sure to take part in the time-honored tradition of clay-pigeon shooting in the company of a trained marksman.

What we love:
• The 3 resident elephants at Pamuzinda Safari Lodge are adorably named Boxer, Shorty and Mambo.
• If you hook any fish in the Serui River, the lodge’s chefs will happily prepare your catch any way you like.
• Pazuminda and the neighboring Chengeta game reserve are home to approximately 350 birds species, as well as a vast array of exotic mammals including giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, porcupine, aardvark and more.

  • Destination
    Zimbabwe, a country known for its wildlife and scenic essence — including Victoria Falls, 1 of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World — hosts enough attractions to impress even the most adventurous. With its incredible parks and extensive grasslands, it’s home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including the exalted Big Five game, as well as a people grounded in tradition, hope and resilience.

    Its northernmost province is Mashonaland West, centrally located on the country’s upper border. And while it’s not the largest of its provinces, it is arguably the most relevant. Roughly one-sixth of Mashonaland West’s land mass is a protected Safari Area or National Park, and nearly half of that bears the lauded UNESCO World Heritage designation. But human labels aside, the province claims vastly more water resources than any other. Lake Kariba, the largest man-made reservoir in the world, feeds the Zambezi River, the 4th-longest in Africa, and together they form Mashonaland West’s northern border. Even more, the tributaries from each are among Zimbabwe’s most important geographical features. Some shape the western and eastern boundaries of the province and all act as waterways to the country’s thirsty interior.
