This beautiful country offers adventurous travellers an authentic wilderness experience. Elephants are the celebrities of Zimbabwe’s safari landscape. Parks like the famous Mana Pools, expansive Hwange and remote Gonarezhou glory in thousands of the pachyderms. National parks cover 13% of Zimbabwe’s land mass, but the adventure does not stop there. Zimbabwe boasts no fewer than five UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the superb natural wonders of Victoria Falls and the Mana Pools and Matobo national parks, and the fascinating ruined cities of Great Zimbabwe and Khami.
The mere sight of the magnificent Victoria Falls is enough to get the heart racing but committed adrenaline junkies have an extraordinary array of exciting activities to relish, from bungee jumping from the railway bridge over the falls to white-water rafting below them. More relaxed folk may opt for sundowner cruises on the Zambezi River or breathtaking helicopter flights.
