Highlights not to Miss

Mana Pools National Park
Mana Pools is about 2 200 sq km and a Unesco World Heritage Site. The park is remote and you get a true sense of the wild and natural when you visit it. There are four pools around the park and you could enjoy fishing and exploring the region either by foot or canoe.

Great Zimbabwe
The greatest medieval city in sub-Saharan Africa, is Great Zimbabwe providing evidence that ancient Africa reached a level of civilisation not suspected by earlier scholars. The site is divided into several major ruins.

Matusadona National Park
The park lies along the southern shore of Lake Kariba with trees that looked like they have drowned before a wild mountain backdrop. The trees are dead and were victims of the rising waters of Lake Kariba during the late 1950s. At about 1410 sq km Matusadona is sandwiched between the Sanyati and Ume Rivers.

Hwange National Park
The largest and most wildlife-packed park in Zimbabwe is Hwange. The national park is about 14 651 sq km and the most accessible park in the country.

Gonarezhou National Park
This national park is virtually an extension of the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
