ZIMBABWE

Zimbabwe is the legendary land of Ophir, the ancient country that enriched the kingdoms of Hiram, Solomon, and Sheba with gold and ivory thousands of years ago. It is also home to the magnificent Victoria Falls, the mighty Zambezi River and Hwange National Park, one of Africa's best safari destinations. Perhaps this popular tourist destination's greatest asset is its friendly people, always ready to welcome visitors to their country with a smile and good service. Zimbabwe is blessed with an excellent tropical climate with much of the country is on a high plateau.

The Victoria Falls are one of the world's grandest natural spectacles and a mecca for the outdoor-lover and adventure traveler, with several adventure activities on offer.

If it is your first visit to Africa we believe that visiting Victoria Falls should not be missed. Eye See Africa has included the Victoria Falls in many of our adventures to this must-see part of Southern Africa.

FACTS

On the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls make a thundering 108m drop into narrow Batoka Gorge, where there’s white-water rafting and bungee-jumping.

Capital : Harare

Currency : United States Dollar, Euro, Botswana pula, Pound sterling, South African rand

Weather


Climate : Although located in the tropics, temperate conditions prevail all year, as the climate is moderated by altitude and the inland position of the country. The hot and dry season is from August to October, and the rainy season from November to March.

When to Go : Zimbabwe can be visited any time of the year. The best game viewing time is in the dry season, May to October, when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. This is especially true in Hwange where the artificially pumped waterholes attract many animals, including big herds of elephants. The best time to see Victoria Falls is from May through September.

HOW TO GET THERE


Zimbabwe's International Airports : Harare International Airport (code: HRE) lies 7 miles (12 km) southeast of Harare.

Getting to Zimbabwe : By air, visitors usually arrive in Harare, or Victoria Falls. Regional flights service the small Victoria Falls airport, and Air Zimbabwe and KLM service Harare from Europe. Most long haul visitors stop in Johannesburg en route to Zimbabwe.
