Botswana Bespoke Safaris | Bespoke travel at its best!
Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in Southern Africa known for its dramatic landscapes and diverse wildlife, much of it within parks, reserves and safari areas.
On the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls makes a thundering 108m drop into narrow Batoka Gorge, where there’s white-water rafting and bungee-jumping. Downstream are Matusadona and Mana Pools National Parks, home to hippos, rhinos and birdlife.
The capital and largest city is Harare. A country of roughly 16 million people, Zimbabwe has 16 official languages with English, Shona and Ndebele the most commonly used.
The name "Zimbabwe" stems from a Shona term for Great Zimbabwe, an ancient ruined city in the country's south-east whose remains are now a protected site.
Zimbabwe has several major tourist attractions. Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River, which are shared with Zambia, are located in the north west of Zimbabwe. The Victoria Falls National Park and the Zambezi National Park are also in this area and are two of the eight main national parks in Zimbabwe, the largest of which is Hwange National Park.
