Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe - despite its current political and economic tensions - still offers superb wildlife experiences in some of the finest reserves of Africa, from the water wilderness of Matusadona and Mana Pools to Hwange and the remote splendour of Gona-Re-Zhou. The crowning glory of Zimbabwe's natural beauty is the mighty Victoria Falls plunging down the Zambezi.

The extraordinary Matobo hills are full of hidden caves, sacred places and Bushman paintings. Archaeological digs have found artefacts over 35,000 years old. Today the hills are the spiritual home of the Matabele people and a visit to a local village will bring you up to date with present day tribal culture in this area

With little awareness of what lies ahead, the steadily flowing Zambezi River casually approaches Victoria Falls, then topples out of control over a sheer 330-foot (100 metre) drop. This mile-wide (1,609 metre) curtain of water really is as spectacular as its reputation and can be viewed from various angles at numerous viewpoints. It is the widest curtain of falling water in the world, and during the warm wet months of February to April, it cascades at over thirty times its dry season flow. The resulting spray can be seen from 20 miles (32kms) away and explains the local African name for the falls - Mosi-oa-tunya ‘Smoke that Thunders’
