Zimbabwe

With its abundance of natural wonders, welcoming locals, fascinating heritage and good climate, Zimbabwe is one of the most remarkable countries in Africa.

Filled with natural beauty and an engrossing history, Zimbabwe has something to offer everyone; breath-taking scenery, adventure and first-class safaris. A UNESCO world heritage site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls is indeed one the world’s greatest geographical sites. The two mile wide curtain of water plunges into Zambezi Gorge creating a ‘smoke that thunders’, rising almost 500m skyward. Take a leap of faith and bungee from the Victoria Falls Bridge (linking Zimbabwe and Zambia), or white water raft in the Zambezi Gorge. Experience exquisite views like you’ve never seen before from the comfort of a scenic flight over the falls or a tranquil sundown cruise.

With a number of national parks, wildlife in Zimbabwe flourishes all year round. Walk with lions and watch them roam freely amongst the hippo, buffalo, crocodiles and elephants, or observe the leopards, zebras, monkeys and rhino (black and white) from atop an elephant or within a canoe. While the saltpans and grassy plains of Hwange National Park offer one of the largest concentrations of animals in the world, the UNESCO world heritage site at Mana Pools is renowned for its outstanding variety of game. Also very popular with game is Lake Kariba, where you can spot huge Nile crocodiles and hippos. Enjoy a variety of water activities or simply relaxing and enjoying the stunning sunset from the most tranquil of accommodations, a houseboat.

The Matobo Hills, yet another UNESCO world heritage site, are a profusion of densely packed granite landforms, creating a sea of hills. For many millennia this presence has motivated human interaction with the dramatic, natural formations and as a result of this, one of the most outstanding rock art collections in Africa lies amongst these hills.

Great Zimbabwe, the country’s capital during the Iron Age (1100-1450), is home to the UNESCO world heritage site of the Great Zimbabwe Ruins. Beautifully set at the head of the Mutirikiwi River, the ruins spread over 722 hectares and are recognised as the oldest stone structure south of the Sahara.

The country holds great appeal for active adventurers, outdoor enthusiasts and anybody with an appreciative eye for beauty.
