Welcome to Zimbabwe
All of Africa is beautiful but on many levels Zimbabwe stands alone!
The country is located in Southern Africa and can easily be called Africa’s Paradise, but when considering the untamed national parks, majestic waterfalls and mysterious ancient ruins the metaphor that springs to mind would be “Africa in the roar”.
No trip to Africa should be complete without a visit to Zimbabwe. Having one of the worlds finest climates and a huge selection of attractions makes Zimbabwe an unbeatable destination.
Keep in mind that it is the rainy season in Zimbabwe between November and March…
Concerned about your safety?
There can be no hiding the fact that Zimbabwe’s tourism industry has suffered as a result of the country’s economic decline over the last decade. Travelers continue to have concerns about visiting the southern African nation that was once one of Africa’s most popular.
Will you be safe? Will you feel welcome? Should you travel to Zimbabwe if you disagree with the political stance of the government?
Ultimately, the decision to visit has to be a personal one, supported by careful research. Robyn Daly, Getaway photojournalist, says:
“I’ve never felt in danger in Zimbabwe it’s absolutely safe for visitors and never been so cheap. That’s one reason why I’m pestering my family to go there on holiday this year.”
Adrenaline adventures and relaxing activities
To visit all the attractions Zimbabwe has to offer in just one visit could be impossible, but below you will find a selection of the most popular attractions in Zimbabwe: Victoria Falls (the unchallenged adrenaline capital of the world), Lake Kariba (game safaris from luxurious houseboats), and Hwange Nature Reserve (an untouched and unspoilt slice of Africa).
Aptly included in the seven natural wonders of the world for its sheer beauty and might, this 108 metre curtain of falling water stretching some 1700 metres is sure to enthrall even the most well traveled visitor. Couple this with what is now known as one of the adrenaline capitals of the world from grade 5 pool and drop rapids on the mighty Zambezi, riding elephants, walking with lions to world class resorts, what more could one wish for in a single destination.
This vast expanse at one time held the record for being the biggest man made lake in the world which is now only surpassed by the Aswan dam in Egypt. Situated right in the middle of Big 5 game country, with the backdrop of the Matusadona mountains, makes this the playground of those wanting to experience an awesome aqua safari. Lake Kariba is home to the legendary Tiger fish which is the most ferocious fighting fresh water fish in the world. From luxurious lakeside lodges to houseboats of all shapes and sizes, there is something here for everyone.
We sure you have seen the scene before: 6 lions on a buffalo kill and a multitude of tour buses surrounding it. This is what Hwange is NOT! This is a park where you can get away from the crowds and immerse yourself in the peace and grandeur of this untouched and unspoilt slice of Africa. A mere two hours comfortable drive from Victoria Falls town will bring you to this awesome feast of the senses. Hwange National Park was founded in 1928 as a haven for the Big 5 and a multitude of plains game. It is in this fabled park that Flame of Africa was proud to initiate what is now known as the Save Hwange trust which assists in providing support in numerous fields e.g. fuel, spare parts etc.
