Some of Africa’s most exclusive wildlife is found in Zimbabwe. Many of the national parks contain the classic Big 5 – Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo
and Rhino, and as mentioned earlier, the remoteness of the region combined with attentive guiding make for a likely wildlife encounter. Zimbabwe is also world famous as a birding destination, and Hwange National Park contains some of the highest concentrations of birds on the planet. Species that are unique to Zimbabwe, or found in only limited ranges elsewhere, include the king cheetah in Gonarezhou, and the samango monkey in the Eastern Highlands.
