Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is a landlocked sovereign state located in Southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers. The capital and largest city is Harare. Zimbabwe is home to four World Heritage Sites - Victoria Falls, Mana Pools National Parks, the Great Zimbabwe Ruins and the Kama Ruins which became the centre of power under the Shona people.

From the exceptionally beautiful Victoria Falls to the magnificent Hwange National Park, and one of the largest manmade lakes in the world, Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe offers abundant game sightings, including the Big Five, and excellent angling for bream and tiger fish. The various adventurous activities range from canoeing, kayaking, and rafting on the Zambezi river, to white water rafting, helicopter rides, and bungee-jumping at Victoria Falls.

The hospitality and friendliness of Zimbabweans makes the country easy to travel around, and allows all travellers to fully embrace their fascinating history and culture. The people are the country and they are always keen to assist others, strangers or not. The Shona, in the north of Zimbabwe, are the main tribe and are known for their beautiful sculptures and carvings of their gods or idols in various materials. The Ndebele live mostly in the west while several other cultures inhabit other parts of the country, all sharing some themes in their traditions. There is a diversity of foods, of songs and dances, of ceremonies and of weddings – festivals grace the calendar on a regular basis.
