Zimbabwe is the land of superlatives with Victoria Falls being the largest waterfall in the world and Lake Kariba being the largest man-made lake. It is rich in history and culture with the remnants of ancient ruins that represent the African kingdoms and civilisations that existed from the 11th to the 15th centuries. Its namesake is from the Shona word, dzimbadzemabwe, meaning “stone houses” after the stone houses that were the nucleus of a thriving trading empire, which the country recognises as the Great Zimbabwe today. With this myriad of natural attractions, rich cultural heritage and an impressive display of wildlife, it comes as no surprise that all roads lead to Zimbabwe.

On the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia is the great waterfall also known as “The Smoke That Thunders,” the Victoria Falls. This roaring waterfall can be viewed from walkways on the Zimbabwean side decorated by dense rainforest. With the Zambezi River plunging down into misty waters and forming a series of gorges, the Victoria Falls offers a great deal of adventure with activities such as white water rafting,zip lining and bungee jumping. If you have always wanted that Instagram worthy picture luxuriously posing in an infinity pool,the Devil’s Pool fulfils this desire as it is a natural infinity pool that lies on the edge of the falls. It lives up to its name as it is one of the worlds’ most dangerous pools.Talk about living on the edge!

This mystical land of natural wonder takes pride in the majestic Mount Nyangani where you can go hiking on untamed landscapes to revel in the beauty of the highest mountain in the country. Here, you will also find the Mutarazi SkyWalk which gives you the impression that you are floating on clouds as you stroll along two suspension bridges that look like vines. Ziplining on the Skyline with a panoramic view of the Mutarazi falls will give you the perfect George of the Jungle moment.

 

Why travel to Zimbabwe?

Zimbabwe is one of the best places on the continent to go on safari as it is home to the Big Five and houses a wide range of endangered species including the brown hyena and the African wild dog. These can be found at Zimbabwe’s biggest and oldest game reserve, Hwange National Park.It has one of the biggest man-made lakes in terms of volume, the Lake Kariba which offers romantic Shakespearean sunsets on magical sunset cruises.

Zimbabwe is a safe and welcoming travel destination. Your experience will especially be enhanced by the warm-hearted , friendly population.

One of the main reasons why Zimbabwe is so inviting is that it feels like a warm, summer’s day all year round.However, November to March is the best time to travel to Zimbabwe as the pastures are greener and rain is seldom. May to September is when Victoria Falls is most spectacular and wildlife viewing is at its peak as animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes.

Commitment to sustainable tourism


The government of Zimbabwe is adopting a sustainable approach towards tourism in line with the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) drive towards sustainable development. In Zimbabwe, one of the main goals of sustainable tourism is eradication of poverty within local communities. The country’s leaders encourage the notion of “reduce, reuse and recycle” in day-to-day activities in order to facilitate the conservation of the environment. Efforts are also being made to draw attention to education in sustainable tourism in learning institutions and communities in Zimbabwe through the implementation of curriculum that takes cognisance of traditional conservation methods as a way of counteracting human-induced land degradation.
