Zimbabwe is a land of diversity and contrasts and unrivalled natural beauty. It is a land where one can experience nature first-hand. It is also a land with a fascinating history that provides depth and meaning.

Past and present are so inextricably part of everyday life that it is impossible to separate the two.

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 offers a variety and diversity of attractions. Some of these are:
* Harare is the capital of Zimbabwe and boasts the National Gallery of Zimbabwe and the Harare Gardens, the city's largest park.

* World-famous Victoria Falls is one of the world's great attractions, measuring a 1.7km wide and dropping between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge.

* The Great Zimbabwe National Monument is the greatest medieval city in sub-Saharan Africa and provides evidence that ancient Africa reached a level of civilisation not suspected by early scholars.

* In the Hwange National Park you'll find one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Animals you can expect to see include elephant, monkey, baboon, impala, lion, giraffe and zebra.

* The Matobo National Park near Bulawayo has a wealth of ancient San paintings and old grain bins, where warriors once stored their provisions.

* At the Mana Pools National Park, with its 4 pools, you're almost guaranteed to see hippo and crocodile, as well as zebra, antelope and elephant and prolific bird life.

Lake Kariba, is an inland sea of two hundred kilometers long and forty kilometers wide at its widest point with the Matusadona National Park (bordering the lake) offering a different experience of the wilderness.

Zimbabwe is a mecca for the outdoor-lover and adventure traveller. In the Victoria Falls area alone you can go white-water rafting, kayaking, micro lighting, parachuting, horse-riding, cycling and even do the world's highest bungi jump.

The Matusadona Wilderness offer superb hiking, the Lake Kariba area offers sailing, house-boating and other water activities and the middle Zambezi is ideal for long-distance canoeing.

And you can obviously go on safari or enjoy golfing on some of the world's least expensive and least crowded golfing courses.
