Your Imire adventure starts here…

You’ll find, just 105km east of Harare in Zimbabwe, an extraordinary place called Imire – “the meeting place”.

Interactions here, with the animals and the people, will astonish you; they’ll fill you with joy, move you to tears, thrill you enormously and, because you’ll need a break from all that excitement, completely relax you, too!

“… a place unlike any other on the planet, where animals and people connect in a very special way.”

For some, it is the incredible beauty of the place that seduces your soul; a diverse range of landscapes in 10,000 acres of conservancy and farm land that includes miombo and msasa woodlands, savannah grassland, rocky outcrops, riverine forest and thorny scrub.

At Imire you’ll find rhino, elephant, lion, hyena, giraffe, zebra, buffalo and more than ten different types of antelope. For bird enthusiasts there are more than 150 different species of birdlife here, including raptors – snake eagle, martial eagle and African hawk eagle – water birds such as fish eagle, green-backed heron, grey heron and kingfishers, plus secretary birds and saddle-billed storks. All our wildlife imparts their own kind of magic and allows you, in many instances, to interact closely with them in their natural habitat.

Imire’s many activities on offer ensure you enjoy these remarkable connections to the fullest.

For others, it is the purpose of Imire that attracts. To protect, nurture and grow the environment, animals and surrounding communities for our future.

“There’s something about Imire that shamelessly captures your heart.”

The Imire Black Rhino Breeding Programme, is world-renowned and is helping to protect Zimbabwe’s heritage with the successful breeding and re-introduction of this incredible beast into the wild. Learn More >

The conservation of wildlife at Imire began decades ago, when Gill and Norman Travers saw a need to re-introduce wildlife back into the area. Their incredible story continues today with Gill and Norman’s son, John and his wife Judy, plus a great supportive team, all tireless participants in a never-ending adventure of love, community, education and fun.

To be a privileged part of Imire, even for a few days, is to share in something unique, whether you’re volunteering, doing a research project, staying at Sable Lodge, working with Numwa School, sponsoring an animal or enjoying a Day Trip.

“Escape from Imire’s charms is futile… no-one is left untouched.”
