Victoria Falls 

Known by the locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya meaning “smoke that thunders” with the roaring of the water being heard from 40km away and the spray rising over 400 meters – it is no wonder this 108-meter-high, 1700 meter wide waterfall is amidst the 7 natural wonders of the world. In addition to the breathtaking views, a number of thrilling activities are on offer around the falls from Whitewater rafting to zip-lining, bungee jumping and even swimming in Devils pool over the edge of the falls.

Hwange National Park 

Situated on the border of Botswana and Zimbabwe, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest protected area as well as one of the 10 largest parks in Africa. Home to 108 animal species, 400 bird species and one of the largest elephant population in the world – a visit here is a visit into the past, revealing what much of Africa might have been over 150 years ago. The park is also home to the endangered African Wild dog, with less than 5000 remaining in Africa. However, if you aren’t lucky enough to spot one, you can visit the Wild Dog rehab centre for injured pups in the park.

Kariba Dam 

Kariba Dam is the largest man-made lake in the world. With a length of 220 kilometres, and a spanning distance of 40km at its widest point- gazing over lake Kariba will have you feeling like your looking out at sea. This mystic destination is famous for its mesmerizing sunsets, wildlife filled shorelines, and astonishing fishing opportunities.

Great Zimbabwe 

A must do for history fanatics. The giant stone monuments were built a whopping 900 years ago and signify the historical events that took place in the country centuries ago. The name “Zimbabwe” is derived from these monuments which in the local language mean “huts of stone”. For those wanting to spend ample time there, the nearby Great Zimbabwe hotel is an option.

Matobo National Park 

Situated roughly 35 km from Bulawayo, this unique landscape is a captivating gallery of balancing rocks formed over 3 billion years. For thousands of years the Matobo National Park was home to bushmen - witness some of the world’s most extraordinary rock paintings in the Silozwane and Nswatugi caves that tell stories of the lives of these hunter-gatherers.

Chinhoyi Caves 

With a silence that is both eerie and profound, this geographical marvel is one of Zimbabwe’s best kept tourist gems – a system of tunnels and caverns made of dolomite and limestone that are slowly collapsing (luckily not in our lifetime). The main feature of the caves is the Wonder Hole, which drops 150 feet into the crystal blue “Sleeping Pool”. It is believed that no visitor is able to throw a stone cross the pool as sacred spirits catch it and cast a spell on the thrower. Dare to challenge this legend?
