FIND OUT MORE

Zimbabwe is central within southern Africa; it has no coastline, with neighbours Zambia in the north, Mozambique in the east, South Africa to the south and Botswana to the west.

 

Our population is estimated to be between 14-16 million.

 

The capital is Harare, with Bulawayo the second largest city and Victoria Falls the hub of tourism in the northwest.

 

Zimbabwe’s main languages are English, Shona and Ndebele.

 

If you have never been to Zimbabwe before, you’re in for a treat: it is one of the most beautiful, enigmatic and diverse countries in Africa and its most important treasures lie in its great wilderness areas. Almost 50,000 square kilometres – around 30% of Zimbabwe’s total land area – is protected as wildlife estate without equal. These spectacular and varied landscapes teem with a rich array of African flora and fauna.

 

All across Zimbabwe there are pristine wilderness areas, botanical gardens, forest sanctuaries, lakes, savannah plains, forested hills, and vibrant modern cities which all come together to make Zimbabwe a land of stunning contrast and endless delights. Then there are the people! Zimbabweans are known for their warmth and hospitality and wherever you decide to go you will be met with friendly faces and welcoming attitudes.

 

Zimbabwe boasts Hwange National Park, one of Africa’s top safari destinations. At 14,500 square kilometres it is home to over 100 mammal species including 19 large herbivores and eight large carnivores and 400 bird species. Hwange is most famous for its elephant - somewhere between 30 and 50 thousand depending on the time of year.

 

Forming the northern border of the country is the Zambezi River, boasting Victoria Falls, a World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonders of the world.  Above the Falls the river winds sleepily past the Zambezi National Park where elephant and lion roam today as they have for thousands of years. Below the Falls, the river is trapped in the chasm of the Batoka Gorge and thrashes wildly between rocky cliffs before it escapes into the inland sea which forms Lake Kariba.
