Eco-tourism destination in Africa: Zimbabwe

 

Zimbabwe

One of the premier African safari locations, Zimbabwe has a diversity of unspoilt ecosystems and good game concentrations especially in the Hwange region and along the Zambezi River. Wildlife safaris in Zimbabwe are unique because you can watch innumerable species of wildlife one day and experience the rush of adrenaline with white water rafting the next, or even enjoy both on the same day!

The Mana Pools National Park in northern Zimbabwe is a World Heritage Site, and a breathtaking wildlife haven. The Lake Kariba and Matusadona National Park offers perfect opportunities for water-based wildlife viewing and hordes of recreational activities. Nevertheless, an eco trip to Zimbabwe is not complete without a visit to the Victoria Falls, a spectacular natural wonder that can be enjoyed from both Zimbabwe as well as Zambia.

  • Gabon
  • Lesotho
