If you forget for a moment the grim political situation in Zimbabwe, you'll discover one of southern Africa’s most beautiful countries. Despite being forced to sacrifice so much, Zimbabweans have not lost their humour. With so few people visiting the country, those who do can expect royal treatment. You are needed here to boost the economy. While the world’s media focuses on the fall of Zimbabwe, visitors will see a very different image. From the absolute wilderness of Mana Pools National Park, the ruins of Great Zimbabwe and the mountains overlooking Mozambique in eastern Zimbabwe, to fine dining in Harare or bungee jumping over Victoria Falls, the country offers something for everyone. And with the current exchange rate your money will go a long way here! Zimbabwe boasts some amazing natural sites. The Victoria Falls is one of the world’s grandest natural spectacles and every viewpoint reveals something new. Running from northeast to southwest down the centre, and connecting its two largest cities, is the Highveld, a chain of low mountains and Zimbabwe’s most populous area. Zimbabwe offers some of the best wildlife parks in southern Africa. From the forested mountains of the Eastern highlands to the sun-washed grasslands of Hwange National Park, from the hot Mopani Forest to the shores of Lake Kariba, more than 11% of Zimbabwe’s land has been set-aside as parks and wildlife estates.
