A nation of spectacular natural beauty, friendly people and rich culture, Zimbabwe’s status as one of Africa’s leading safari destinations was dampened for years by its political instability. Now the country is transcending its strife and returning to a state of equilibrium to once again emerge as a must see destination. Victoria Falls – known to locals as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’ – is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the sheer power of this massive body of water plunging into the Zambezi Gorge is awe-inspiring and unforgettable. Famous for its massive herds of elephants, Hwange National Park proudly calls Zimbabwe home. Whereas a kayak trip down the Zambezi through the Mana Pools National Park will appeal to the intrepid traveler, providing close encounters with crocodiles, hippos and a host of other wildlife.
