Our destiny began over a century ago, when our forefathers first planted roots in Zimbabwe, they arrived in Southern Africa in the late 1800s as explorers and mapmakers who chartered and surveyed all that was unknown to the western world. For well over one hundred years the passion and enthusiasm for exploration and travel has been passed down through the Mavros family.

As fifth-generation Zimbabweans, we have experienced a childhood that only the unique environment of Africa can provide. We have waded through the miracles that are African rivers, climbed the magnificent and stately trees, and rescued and raised wild animals as pets. We have been educated by the best teachers; old bushmen, wise trackers, erstwhile guides, botanists and biologists on all aspects of African life and culture. We want to share our knowledge and experience of our magical home continent with you.

Our ultimate goal is for our clients to experience and know Africa as we know it. As home.


Our Zimbabwean Inspiration

The African continent bestows untold adventure, and we welcome and encourage exploration, but our true home is Zimbabwe. From the genuine warmth of the Zimbabwe people, to the majesty of Victoria Falls, the fantastic wildlife and fascinating archaeological treasures, we feel that nowhere else offers such a wonderful and diverse safari experience.

The rich heritage, history and ancestry that define this endearing and enduring country also define us as a family. At Mavros Safaris, we combine our passion, premier safari guides and the spirit of safari adventure with the freedom to walk and camp under the open African skies. Zimbabwe’s magic, allure and authenticity have not diminished over the years as our country remains the favourite for many seasoned Africa travellers.

We would love to show you our home, Zimbabwe, the beating heart of Africa…
