Zimbabwe is blessed with such diversity and beauty that it is sure to fulfil the dreams of any traveller planning to visit this gem of Africa. Firstly, the legendary and impressive Victoria Falls, discovered by David Livingstone. Further upstream, Lake Kariba, a huge inland sea decorated by half submerged forests. To the east, the Highlands, cool enough at certain times of the year for the grass to be covered with morning frost and a paradise for hikers and fishermen alike. To the west another world awaits you: chaotic granite rocks forming the Matopos Hills which so enchanted Cecil Rhodes that he wished to be buried there after his death. To all this, add the ruins of ancient civilizations, massive stone buildings reflecting a culture whose mysterious roots are lost in remote origins….and you have a fascinating multi-faceted country.
