Zimbabwe is a landlocked country bordered by Zambia, Mozambique, Botswana, and South Africa. Rich in culture and wildlife, Zimbabwe is home to Victoria Falls, one of the wonders of the world.
Situated on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, the spectacular site of the Zambezi River plummeting three hundred feet into a gorge has attracted visitors for decades. Surrounded by lush rainforest and diverse wildlife, Victoria Falls offers something for everyone — from whitewater rafting to strolling along footpaths. For visitors who want to stay at the Falls, the Victoria Falls Hotel is located so close that guests can hear the rip of the water and feel the force of the falls while enjoying afternoon English tea on the patio.
Zimbabwe offers a vast amount of activities for the sports-minded individual. The Victoria Falls Bridge connects the countries of Zimbabwe and Zambia. The bridge is used as a Bungee jumping platform and is a thrill-seekers dream. Down below on the Zambezi River, the adventurous can white water raft through the raging waters and fly fish along the shores. For those looking for a more leisurely experience, there are numerous footpaths to explore. Visitors to the Falls can view a variety of birdlife and game, including warthogs, baboons, and elephants, among others.
When visiting Zimbabwe, Hwange National Park, Mana Pools National Park, and Matabo National Park are also a must see. Victoria Falls is approximately 1.45 hours north of Johannesburg via air.
