Touring & Photographic Safaris

African Wanderer Safaris is based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
 We specialise in Historical and Game Viewing Tours in the surrounding area. Specifically 
Half and Full Day Tours to Matobo National Park, where one can experience the magical
beauty of the area, while driving and walking in the ​Matobo Hills, visiting Bushman rock
art, and taking in the Panorama from Worlds View ( Rhodes Grave ), or getting up close
​and personal, tracking Rhino through the bush. All times receiving wide and varied
information on the relevant interest, be it the history of Cecil John Rhodes, or King
Mzilikazi, or a dung beetle rolling a ball over the road. Nothing is irrelevant. We can
​collect you from any camp near the National Park, or Lodge or Hotel in Bulawayo.
