OBSERVE WILDLIFE IS HIGH VALUE SAFARIS WITH LOW ECOLOGICAL IMPACT IN ZIMBABWE.

OBSERVE WILDLIFE WELCOMES YOU TO ZIMBABWE.

OBSERVE WILDLIFE is a Safari guide-owned operation that focuses on guiding personalized, exclusive, private and family safaris for small groups of not less than 4 but not more than 8 persons to observe wildlife inside the World renowned Hwange National Park. The Award-winning and highly rated Wildlife Safari Guide, Kaz Dube, conducts all the safaris. We subscribe to the notion that the value of a true low impact safari is to leave no trace on the environment. We have found that the lowest impact is best accomplished by not putting any permanent infrastructure in pristine wilderness areas. This is why we operate a lightweight low footprint seasonal Meru-style tented camp that maintains and perpetuates a wilderness area to remain truly wild. We focus passionately on wildlife immersion, remoteness, exclusivity and the experience to observe and photograph wildlife which is worth more than luxurious bells and whistles.

PERFECT SAFARIS FOR FAMILIES, WILDLIFE ENTHUSIASTS AND PHOTOGRPHERS.

OBSERVE WILDLIFE guides you on a quintessential safari where you are immersed to observe the fascinating natural selection behavioral processes in wildlife. The Wildlife Safari Guide, Kaz Dube, interprets in real life the Age-old theme of the hunter and the hunted while you observe breathtaking wildlife survival activities on display. You will observe the stunning dominance combats and masses of wildlife in this great magical savanna known as Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. We want you to observe the heartbeat of Africa that is, our wildlife. Guided daily game-drives and walking safaris are the lifeblood of OBSERVE WILDLIFE.

FAMILY SAFARIS.

Busy schedules and scattered lives that fill up most days throughout the year often make it difficult for families to spend quality time together. Putting aside the typical day-to-day commitments and responsibilities to be present for each other on a wildlife safari trip conducted in Africa is the best way to bond and become a closer family unit. Make lasting memories as you collaborate together on a family safari. Deepen and foster robust multi-generational connections as you observe wildlife. Create lifelong memories beginning before the safari while the family talks and plans the safari. A family safari is important, meaningful and beneficial because it incorporates everyone and all ages. A safari with OBSERVE WILDLIFE seeks to help your family to develop life skills together in empathy, patience, compromise, thought organization and empowering each other. Daily dinner family debriefs on safari after our activities to observe wildlife will perpetuate bonding, brings validation and active engagement.

GAME DRIVE SAFARIS.

OBSERVE WILDLIFE offers a game drives safari for you to enjoy a perfect multi-generational family bonding time. This is a superb opportunity for a family comprising grandparents, children and grandchildren to spend quality time together immersing in the pristine wildlife inside Hwange National Park. Great stories are told, memories are created and it is a unique family reunion spent sharing spectacular wildlife sightings in a secluded and exclusive camp. The experience is personalized and enhanced by exceptional safari guiding conducted by our top Wildlife Safari Guide, Kaz Dube. A game-drives safari points to the fact that perhaps the grandparents or grandchildren may be unable to participate in walking safaris for various reasons hence the focus on game-drives to observe spectacular wildlife.

WALKING SAFARIS.

OBSERVE WILDLIFE conducts passionate and informative walking safaris which will get you into close-up positions to observe, smell, listen, photograph and enjoy wildlife up close and personal inside Hwange National Park. Walking safaris are combined with game drives and, often they are simply interactive walking approaches towards high profile mammals that include elephant, buffalo, lion, cheetah, painted dogs and hyenas. During the walking safaris to observe wildlife, the Wildlife Safari Guide, Kaz Dube shares meaningful interpretation of the behavior and survival traits of the diverse mammals, birds and plants encountered on safari. You’ll be guided to walk, approach and observe high profile wildlife on foot. A walking safari is the purest form of activity to observe wildlife up close and releases you from the constraints of a vehicle. The inborn astuteness and acuteness of wild animal senses needed for their survival in the wilderness requires for great skillfulness and awareness from the Wildlife Safari Guide to steer inquisitive tourists into safe, close-up positions to observe wildlife. Walking safaris are a privilege to go deeper into the untamed wilderness and explore secrets of wildlife.

HWANGE NATIONAL PARK.

OBSERVE WILDLIFE will conduct a masterclass safari for you to observe wildlife inside the pristine environment of Hwange National Park. The aim of OBSERVE WILDLIFE is to guide, reveal and expose the intricate natural wildlife interactions inside Hwange National Park. You will spend considerable time with each particular mammal specie and the Wildlife Safari Guide, Kaz Dube will share an increased amount of information about the animal being observed so as to greatly enhance the wildlife experience.

WILDLIFE BEHAVIOR.

The interaction of animals with the environment in which they function produces the all important wildlife behavior. Without animals, no behavior is possible or available to observe. Without an environment which provides the stimulation and the context, no behavioral response can be displayed and observed. The pristine Hwange National Park provides us the environment which is the stimulus. The 400 bird species and 100 mammal species naturally domiciled inside Hwange National Park are the safari protagonists that need the stimulation. A safari with OBSERVE WILDLIFE seeks to connect and immerse you into the awe-inspiring response to the environment by the animals. Your Wildlife Safari Guide, Kaz Dube is committed and extremely passionate about enhancing your wildlife experience by sharing intense and extensive information while you are guided to interact with and observe wildlife.
