Visit Africa’s most spectacular waterfall

Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe is located in southern Africa and bordered by Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique and South Africa. The main highlight in Zimbabwe is the Victoria Falls. Often travel to southern Africa will be combined with Zimbabwe, and then mainly a visit to Victoria Falls. However, Zimbabwe has more to offer then the Victoria Falls and has some beautiful nature/wildlife reserves. Places like Hwange National Park, Lake Kariba and Mana Pools, could all be added to the itinerary.

 

Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls are the widest falls in Africa and one of the largest waterfalls in the world. The falls are based at the Zambezi, at the boarder with Zimbabwe and Zambia. From both countries you will have a different view of the falls. From the Zimbabwe side you will see the falls from bottom up,  which gives a spectacular view with intense sounds. From the Zambia side you will see the fall from the top and it is equally beautiful. Also, from this side you can get closer to the water. To get the best of both worlds, you can easily cross the border and see the falls from both sides.

Hwange National Park
Hwange National Park is the largest national park in Zimbabwe. In the park you will find about 100 mammals and 400 bird species. Within Hwange you will find the specially protected animals of Zimbabwe. This national park is also the only protected area where gemsbok and brown hyena occurs in reasonable numbers. Other animals to be spotted when going on a safari in Hwange National Park are; lion, leopard, spotted hyena and cheetah.
