Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in Southern Africa comprising 39,075,700 hectares (1 hec. = 2.471 acres). It is bordered by South Africa to the South, Mozambique to the East, Zambia to the North and Botswana and Namibia to the West. Altitude ranges from around 1650 feet in the northern Zambezi Valley up to 5000 feet in the Highveld, and slopes down again to around 1000 feet in the south-east Lowveld.

Zimbabwe’s climate is divided mainly into Summer (Oct – Apr. with temperatures around 90F (32C)) and Winter (May – Sept. with temperatures around 68F (20C)) but can drop much lower at night). The main rainfall is between December and March when access to some hunting areas can be restricted because of impassable conditions and high temperatures combined with humidity.

The ideal hunting time is between April and October. Highveld areas may offer hunting year round at the discretion of the Operator. Other areas may also open year round depending on conditions prevailing.
