Zimbabwe Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 50%, Zimbabwe possesses some amazing travel destinations that are sure to be featured on every African highlight reel. After a visit to the modern capital of Harare, make the requisite pilgrimage to Victoria Falls - one of the world's truly awesome wonders. Here you can literally take a dip in the waters near the precipice by visiting the network of pools located at the top of the drop off. To boost your blood pressure further, you may also decide to take the 111 meter (~ 364 ft) plunge bungee-style off of Victoria Falls Bridge. This leap easily sets the benchmark for virtually any other jump that you may be brave enough to take on your travels around the globe. But even though it may seem as if you need to be an X-Game fanatic to visit Zimbabwe, you can't get past the fact that this is also the cultural home of one of Africa's most powerful ancient civilizations after visiting the ruins of Great Zimbabwe. But you're sure to be drawn back to natural wonders with visits to Hwange, Nyangae, Motobo and Mana Pools National Parks or the lush countryside in the Eastern Highlands. Not to be outdone, get back to the water with a canoe safari in Lake Kariba to see abundant wildlife along the banks, including rhino, buffalo and elephant. So, if you're looking for an adrenaline rush, a powdering of history, and a large dose of nature, Zimbabwe fits the bill perfectly!
