What To Experience In Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls Town and Mosi oa Tunya (The Smoke that thunders)

Victoria Falls (Mosi oa Tunya) is Zimbabwe's main attraction. The falls measure a huge 1.7km wide and drop between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge , The magnificence of this spectacle has led to  these falls being classified as one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The best time to visit is during the rainy season, between September and February as this is when you will see the falls at their peak (remember your raincoats).  Not only will you catch the falls at their best but this time of year is fantastic in the town of Victoria Falls as you can enjoy all the adventure activities such as the famous grade 5 White Water Rafting, exciting helicopter flights over the falls and perhaps even canoe safaris on the mighty Zambezi (Weather permitting).

Mana Pools

The Mana Pools conservancy is a wildlife conservation area in Western Zimbabwe along the lower Zambezi River and is one of the only parks in Zimbabwe where visitors are able to venture out on foot. Flood plains turn into a broad expanse of lakes after each rainy season and as the lakes gradually dry up and recede, the region attracts many large animals in search of water, making it one of Africas most famous game viewing regions.
