Zimbabwe

Undoubtedly, the jewel in Zimbabwe’s crown is Victoria Falls – one of the seven natural wonders of the world and one of the planet’s largest and most spectacular waterfalls, straddling the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe’s extreme north-west. Such is the force of the flow, that the mist can be seen from two countries away.

The beauty of Zimbabwe and the friendliness of its people are often overshadowed by the antics of its former leader, Robert Mugabe. However, politics aside, this landlocked country offers a raw beauty in the landscape and richness of culture. Zimbabwe’s natural attractions draw attention, but the archaeological remains of an Iron Age City - the World Heritage listed Greater Zimbabwe site - are also well worth a visit. State-run national parks and private wildlife reserves make up around 11% of the country’s land and game viewing is some of the best you’ll see in Southern Africa.
