HIGHLIGHTS OF ZIMBABWE
The Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, which at 1500 metres wide and over 100 metres high is one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Particularly adventurous visitors might even pluck up the courage to take on the infamous bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge.
Hwange National Park, the oldest and largest park in the country, which is home to one of the largest populations in the entire world of that gentlest of giants, the elephant. Watching these beasts come to drink at an active waterhole from the comfort of your own safari lodge is an unforgettable experience.
The Zambezi River, which cuts a vital swathe through this country and which, before it is carved in half by the majestic Victoria Falls, offers boundless recreational possibilities including canoeing, game cruising and white water rafting.
The otherworldy beauty of the Matobo Hills, whose granite landscapes have been worn by the elements over the millennia into bizarre shapes. The inhabitants that roam these lands are no less striking, with rhino, leopard, antelope and giraffe among the fauna who have made their home here.
