The long song of Zimbabwe is one that includes as many highs as it does lows, although once heard, it is a song not easily forgotten. Those who have travelled to this beautiful but fragile land and who have been welcomed by its resilient but friendly people will attest to its ability to cast a spell on all who have been here. It is a land rich in diversity ranging from low-lying semi-desert to lush highlands strewn with forest and lakes. From hilltops that undulate unending to rivers that forge ever deeper gorges, it is a beautiful land, home to friendly people who have not lost their sense of humour, despite all that they have had to endure. Its wildlife reserves are home to an assortment of animals that can be found in high concentrations, from the ponderous elephant that moves gracefully through the tall grass, to a lithe lion clawing stealthily in pursuit of its prey and everything off Noah’s Arc in between.
Victoria Falls is undoubtedly the jewel in Zimbabwe’s crown, the smoke that thunders is the largest curtain of falling water in the world and is arguably the most beautiful and grandest of all waterfalls. It is a magical and mystical place where the mists that swirl up as the waters plunge down cast rainbows by day and moonbows by night. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is also the home of the Adventure Capital of Africa and if you’ve ever wanted to experience the thrill of: bungee jumping, elephant back safaris, helicopter flips over the falls (aptly named the flight of the angels), the largest commercial white-water rafting in the world, etc, etc etc … there can be no finer place to do it all than right here!
