Where to go in Zimbabwe 

Victoria Falls

Without a doubt one of the most majestic of sights…. The spray along can be seen for nearly 50km (31 miles). The locals call this Mosi-oa-Tunya, or the Smoke that Thunders and one can see why as when the River is full, nearly  500 000 cubic meters of water a minute tumble over the edge and into the gorge below.

Hwange National Park

Abounds in wildlife especially herds of elephant that make their way along the old game tails to the Chobe River in neighbouring Botswana.

Kariba Dam

Offers nearly 2000 kilometers of game infested shoreline is best viewed from a houseboat and its viewing decks.

Masvingo

The home to the Zimbabwe Ruins, which is Africa’s oldest stone monument after the Pyramids and was home to nearly 10 000 of the Shona peoples.

Matopos Rocks

The precarious balancing rocks of Matopos are unbelievable.  Home to one of the last of the black Rhino populations and many rock painting and rock engraving sites too. This is also the final resting places of Cecil John Rhodes.

There are so many exciting adventure activities on offer in Vic Falls no wonder its called the Adventure capital of Africa . You could spend a week here and it still wont be enough time for you  to partake in all of the incredible adventure activities on offer .

When to go to Zimbabwe

Rainy season is long and stretches from Late October through until April. Although the season is long, the rains are generally very short and heavy and the skies clear up again. May through to August are generally the cooler months and although the landscape is then very dry and bare, it is very conducive to excellent game viewing and the mosquitoes and tsetse flies are considerably less active. The Zambezi is at its fullest in April and May and the river rafting may be closed over this time as the river is too swollen and dangerous.

The falls are at their most spectacular at this time too, although the spray may be so dense that the bottom of the gorge cannot be seen. Although less water in the falls over the drier months, the view is no less spectacular. Victoria Falls is the adventure capital of Africa . There are so many exciting adventure activities on offer …from Elephant Back Safaris .. to flying in a Helicopter over the Falls or cruising on the mighty Zambezi river while you watch one of the most beautiful sunsets in Africa .
