Zimbabwe Travel Information

  • Victoria Falls from the sky

Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in southern Africa bordering South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique and Botswana. Most famous for Victoria Falls, the local people refer to the falls as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” which means “The Smoke that Thunders!” This is of course due to the marvelous vision of rising mist that can be seen from some distance away when the river is at its highest. The name was originally coined by explorer and missionary, David Livingston.

Zimbabwe enjoys rich wildlife and natural beauty. From the Matopo Hills and their huge boulders to ancient Great Zimbabwe ruins going back to Africa’s great ancestry, to a number of national parks and wildlife reserves offering fantastic game viewing.

Hwange Nation Park is Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve and the saltpans and grassy plains support a large concentration of animals. Mana Pools is renowned for its canoe trails and Lake Kariba is best to know for its abundance of wildlife including hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, rhinos, elephants and lions.
