Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Trip Type Trip Type Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided / Independent Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

Africa Joy Tours has one of the most friendly staff I have met and it shows that for them customer's satisfaction and happiness is the most important.

I went on a trek to Killimanjaro and the entire team ensured that I was well taken care off. From the moment I met them till the time I left Moshi, I was always made to feel like a part of their family.

A special thanks to the head of the show Mr. Clinton for making my birthday on Kilimanjaro so special and to Joseph my guide for ensuring I reach the peak safe and sound!

Thank you! You guys are amazing!

This trip was a bucket list trip. We were thrilled with the amount of detail and planning that G Adventures put into this. It was amazing. there was a perfect mix of urban meets rural. The Safari's were spectacular. The wild life interaction was more than we bargained for. The lodges were very accommodating and the service beyond compare. Our CEO (guide) was very knowledgeable and in tune with everyone's needs. We chose to stay in Zambia a 3 days after the scheduled trip. Most of our souvenirs were found here. The night entertainment was great. We believe that group guided trips are not for every vacation. This one is definitely one to let G Adventures do the research and planning for you. Just go and relax there is a lot to enjoy.

We saw many animals and travelled through some amazing National Parks viewing incredible wildlife. I strongly recommend this tour.

Zimbabwe Tours and Travel Guide

Zimbabwe Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Over the past decade, Zimbabwe -- once a prime safari destination -- has had its share of political turmoil under Robert Mugabe, leading to a faltering tourism industry and some game parks and infrastructure falling into neglect. But travelers are once again discovering this scenically beautiful south-central African country that shares a remarkable border with neighboring Zambia: the Zambezi River, which features one of the world’s great natural wonders, Victoria Falls.

The longest uninterrupted curtain of cascading water in the world, Victoria Falls is also home to a number of adventure-related activities, ranging from whitewater rafting in the Zambezi and bungee jumping off a 420-foot-high bridge to “gorge swinging” -- swinging on a cable across a 442-foot-long, 246-foot-high gorge while in full body harness.

While Victoria Falls alone would warrant a visit to Zimbabwe, the country continues to host a number of excellent wildlife parks with well-trained guides, offering a variety of safaris on land and water.

Elephants Galore

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest and most visited game reserve, is located a short distance from Victoria Falls on the fringes of the Kalahari Desert. It’s best known for its herds of elephants, said to be the second largest number in the world (after Chobe National Park in Botswana).

Hwange is also home to large numbers of Cape buffalo as well as lions, leopards, cheetahs, wildebeest, giraffes, black rhinos, impalas, wild dogs, and hundreds of species of birds. The best viewing is during the dry winter months, which are also the coolest, when animals gather at waterholes to drink.

One private park near Victoria Falls, called Antelope Park, offers chances to walk with lion cubs and swim with elephants, among other wildlife encounters, as part of a rehabilitation program. It’s a memorable experience and is a highlight of many visitors’ stay.

Lake Kariba -- the world’s largest artificial lake, formed after the damming of the Zambezi east of Vic Falls back in the 1950s -- is a beautiful spot for a water-borne safari. It’s occupied by hippos and crocodiles, while elephants graze along the shoreline. Matusadona National Park lies alongside Lake Kariba and boasts numerous prides of lions.

Canoeing the Zambezi

Mana Pools National Park, which borders the Zambezi to the south, harbors four large pools that attract elephants, buffalo, hippos, crocodiles and birds. You can also take canoes out into the Zambezi, which flows lazily at this point, for a few hours or a multi-day adventure. Matobo National Park is known for its rhino-tracking expeditions and offers good opportunities for walking and horseback safaris as well as game drives in search of antelope, monkeys, warthogs and birds. Matobo also features a startling sight: an array of balancing boulders, as well as thousands of pieces of ancient rock art.

The famed Great Zimbabwe National Monument -- also called the Zimbabwe Ruins -- originally dates from the 11th century and once harbored a population of 10,000. The stone houses (for which Zimbabwe is named) were abandoned in the 15th century and are now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Whether you choose Zimbabwe as a separate destination or combine it with visits to nearby BotswanaNamibia, and Zambia, Stride can help find the outfitter and itinerary that are right for you, in what remains a true bucket list destination.
