Full of dramatic landscapes, incredible wildlife, and welcoming locals, Zimbabwe is a wonderful choice for an African holiday. A safari here will get you up close and personal with leopards, lions, rhinos, elephants, and buffalo, ensuring you take in some sights you’d never be able to at home.
With an abundance of national parks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the natural scenery on offer in Zimbabwe is second-to-none. Though there are many places to visit and sights to see, the undoubted gem of the country is Victoria Falls - one of the Natural Wonders of the World.
Found on the southern bank of the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls is a Zimbabwean town found very close to the large waterfalls of the same name. Unsurprisingly, these world’s-largest waterfalls are the main draw to a stay here and they have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1989. The falls’ native name is Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, and it offers incredible vistas from all around, as well as rafting for those adrenalin junkies visiting. A major selling point for those visiting, it really is a must-see.
Other places worth visiting are Mana Pools National Park, Hwange National Park, the capital city of Harare, and Lake Kariba.
