Zimbabwe shares the largest waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls, with Zambia, providing an awe-inspiring sight for everyone who visits. It is also home to the Hwange National Park, where you are sure to experience game drives during your tour. This reserve is the largest in Zimbabwe and is noted for its high numbers of elephants, Cape wild dogs and hippos. It is also one of the few places you will see brown hyenas in substantial groups.
The Matobo National Park is another protected area, but one with impressive features that go beyond the native wildlife. Here you will find ancient rock paintings that were created by the San people around 2,000 years ago. The art depicts the animals that would have surrounded the Bushmen and much of it is very well preserved. Primitive tools, clay ovens and other interesting artefacts have also been uncovered in this important archaeological site.
Whether you come to Zimbabwe for the abundant wildlife or the ancient splendours, it will provide many experiences that stay with you forever.
