Situated in the heart of Southern Africa, land-locked Zimbabwe is a vibrant country with dramatic landscapes, impressive National Parks and welcoming people. Zimbabwe has much to offer, despite the economic turmoil that it suffers and we highly recommend a visit.
Zimbabwe is enclosed between two rivers, the Zambezi River to the north and the Limpopo River to the south. In between is an inland plateau filled with kopjes (granite outcrops), beautiful national parks, rugged mountains and lush forests. There is a huge variety of things to see and with relatively few visitors and little mass tourism with plenty of opportunity to find peace and quiet. Don't expect bargain-basement prices though, as these have held fairly steady – it's just the visitor numbers that are relatively low outside of Victoria Falls.
Zimbabwe has something to offer everyone. You can go on a game drive in Hwange National Park, take a canoe safari in Mana Pools National Park, fly over Victoria Falls on the Flight of Angels or view the granite boulders and rock art in Matobo Hills National Park. For many visitors, a trip to Victoria Falls (Mosi-ao-Tunya – the Smoke that Thunders) is a highlight of their trip to Zimbabwe.
It is relatively easy to get around Zimbabwe and most camps and lodges welcome families including smaller children of any ages!
