WHY TRAVEL HERE?
Zimbabwe was awarded the “World Best Tourist Destination for 2014” by the European Council on Tourism & Trade. Renowned for being one of Africa’s most beautiful destinations with a superb year round climate, the country’s tourism is bouncing back in a big way. It has an incredible diversity of landscapes and top destinations like Victoria Falls, one of the world’s Top 10 Natural Wonders; and Hwange National Park which at over 14,000 sq. km in extent is one fo the largest wilderness sanctuaries in Africa and home to a 30,000 strong elephant population amongst its 100 mammal species. The country boasts the five World Heritage Sites of Victoria Falls, Mana Pools NP, Matobo Hills NP, Great Zimbabwe and Khami Ruins and the professional guides at bush lodges are regarded as the best in Africa.
Its superb wildlife offerings in Hwange, Mana Pools & Gonarezhou National parks are contrasted by the cultural experience of Great Zimbabwe & Matobo Hills NP and then the Eastern Highlands offer a range of mountains filled with breath-taking waterfalls, clear streams, and endemic flora and birdlife. Zimbabweans are naturally friendly, warm but professional in their hospitality & excellent standards preside in the lodges and hotels. The country does not focus on mass tourism and this provides a far more intimate and personalised experience than many other African destinations.
