Zimbabwe offers natural beauty, human history and wildlife in spades. One of Africa’s unsung delights, those who venture to the sub-Sahara will long recall the driving energy of Victoria Falls, the ‘Big Five’ in its national parks, and the ancient rock paintings at Matobo Hills, as well as a whole host of other unique experiences.
Forming the headwaters of the Maleme, Mpopma and Mtsheleli rivers, the Matobo National Park is the oldest in Zimbabwe, and has been a designed UNESCO World Heritage site since 2003. The wildlife here is plentiful, with babboons and zebras drinking from the river banks, with eagles soaring above. It is, however, the human history that makes the park worthy of visiting. Occupied by humans for over 500,000 years, Matobo Hills is home to one of the largest concentrations of rock art in Africa – dating back to between 320 and 600 C.E.
Victoria Falls is best seen from Zimbabwe, with the most complete views offered from this side of the border with Zambia. Those seeking adventure will be sure to view from the steps of Danger Point, whilst others may prefer to marvel alongside the David Livingstone statue.
Adjacent to the Falls is Zambezi National Park, which is home to lions, elephants and giraffes, and forms part of itineraries that encompass Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park. Hwange is home to the ‘Big Five’ and is abundant with other wildlife that make this park a must-see when exploring Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe is one of Africa’s finest delights and offers a range of truly unforgettable experiences for those seeking a combination of wildlife, adventure and luxury.
