Zimbabwe offers natural beauty and diversity, starting with the magnificent Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River. Unspoiled wilderness and rich wildlife abound and for recreation, there is no better playground than the lovely Lake Kariba.
Zimbabwe’s national parks and private wildlife ranches with their miombo woodlands and thorny acacia or kopje-studded landscapes, offer great opportunities for wildlife viewing and bird-watching. Animals including antelopes, zebras and giraffes roam the plains and there’s a good chance of seeing the Big Five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino). You can spot wildlife from a vehicle, on foot, on horseback, or even on the back of an elephant.
Zimbabwe's Game Reserves are managed by the government. They were initially founded as a means of using unproductive land. Little regard was given to modern conservation values, but once these evolved, the country became a world leader in wildlife management. Zimbabwe currently has 9 national parks which, are situated all around the country.
