Zimbabwe

 

Zimbabwe has a rich history and heritage and behind the grim data lies one of southern Africa’s most beautiful countries. And despite being forced to sacrifice so much, Zimbabweans have not lost their humour or resolve. With so few visiting the country, those who do can expect royal treatment. They need you. While the world’s media focuses on the fall of Zimbabwe, visitors will see a very different image of the country. Zimbabweans are a peace-loving people, warm and hospitable.


Zimbabwe is no longer nearly as cheap as it once was, but its richness in culture and colour remain. Colonialism remains etched in all sorts of ways, but local traditions are visible. A country of charm, political intrigue and magnificent wilderness awaits. Oh, and Zimbabwe’s got one of the world’s best climates… even the worst government can’t destroy that.


The Victoria Falls' mile-wide (2 km) curtain of water plunges deep into the Zambezi Gorge creating a cloud of mist that can be seen up to 32 km away.


Highlights are the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, the beautiful Lake Kariba and Zimbabwe's largest wildlife sanctuary, Hwange National Park, home to one of Africa's largest elephant populations and a myriad of other species. Another excellent game viewing park is Mana Pools on the Zambezi.


Zimbabwe's natural beauty is world-famous and not to be missed.
