5-Day Treasures of Zimbabwe

Detailed Itinerary

Beyond the wildlife, the highlight of a trip to Zimbabwe is surely the point where the Zambezi River cascades over the edge of a basalt plateau. Forming the mile-wide Victoria Falls, it casts its magic on all who stand at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. At the UNESCO World Heritage site of Great Zimbabwe, the ruins of a medieval city tell the story of a forgotten civilization. It is an important part of the region’s history, and the network of stone monuments indicate a culture with great architectural skill.

Zimbabwe’s capital city is the country’s most cosmopolitan and contemporary destination, dotted with restaurants and bars, shops and markets. Its proud historical and cultural heritage is reflected in several well-preserved old buildings and informative museums, while its many parks and gardens provide a pleasant contrast to the bustling urban sectors. Located within easy reach of the city centre are the Mukuvisi Woodlands, comprising over 250 hectares of natural wilderness, while The Kopje – a rocky hill to the south-west of Harare – offers great views over the city.
