Home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world, Zimbabwe’s appeal is timeless. The country offers a range of breath-taking World Heritage Sites and scenic locations, including Victoria Falls, Mana Pools National Parks and Lake Kariba; not to mention the vast array of species there is to see.

Each park has a unique experience waiting for you, visit Gonarezhou for large elephant herds; Matopos for rhino, black eagles and leopard. Mana Pools offers fantastic boating, walking and canoeing safaris with sightings of hippo and waterbuck, big cats, buffalo and elephant. Hwange National Park is home to over 100 mammals and 400 bird species – including each of Zimbabwe’s specially protected animals – and is the only place in Zimbabwe where brown hyena and gemsbok survive in numbers.

Aside from safari holidays, Zimbabwe is a great option for indelible culture and history, take a trip to the greatest medieval city on the continent - Great Zimbabwe, as well as Khami Ruins National Monument – capital of the Torwa dynasty between 1450 and 1650. At Matobo Hills, mesmerising rock paintings document the relationship between man and environment over 100,000 years. The hills are also home to the grave of Cecil Rhodes, founder of Rhodesia, and the area still acts as a sacred place for Zimbabweans to this day.

    and the wildlife here is in their most natural state. The presence of over 8,000 elephants is everywhere.
