Zimbabwe is a landlocked country situated between two great rivers: the mighty Zambezi cuts along its northern frontier, forming the border with Zambia, while the languid Limpopo forms the southern border with South Africa. In between, the country has a variety of habitats, from the granite hills of the Matopos to the majestic mountains, lush forests and beautiful rivers of the Eastern Highlands. As such, there is much to attract the traveller, from wildlife viewing and adrenalin adventures to encountering the history of the Zimbabwean people going back thousands of years.
Things to look forward to in Zimbabwe:
Watching enormous herds of elephant gathering at Hwange’s numerous waterholes
Bungee jumping at the stupendous Victoria Falls
Game driving through classic safari country in scenic and wildlife-rich National Parks
Cruising down the mighty Zambezi River by boat or, for the more adventurous, by canoe
First time to Africa
Zimbabwe is once again coming into its own, combining a wealth of scenic landscapes, remnants of ancient civilisations, incredible wildlife and adventures galore.
Travelled to Africa
Cradled between two great African rivers – the myth-shrouded, perennial Zambezi and the “great grey green greasy” seasonal Limpopo – Zimbabwe is blessed with abundant natural resources.
The Zambezi River has an exceptional variety of spectacular scenery as well as one of the world’s natural wonders: the Victoria Falls, known locally as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” – “the Smoke that Thunders.”
