Zimbabwe is such a beautiful and welcoming place and I have no doubt you will be very impressed by the diversity it offers.
Zimbabwe in area is 150,804 sq mi (390,580 sq km) which comparatively makes it approximately three times the size of England and 1.7 times the size of the United Kingdom. Due to its location and land configuration Zimbabwe has a very diverse set of climates from the cool, misty Eastern Highlands, through the hot and relatively humid south east, to the dry climates of Matebeleland and the hotter and humid northern parts which embrace the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls, Kariba and Mana Pools. The weather is generally good all year round with most rain occurring in the summer months from November through to April. The winter months mostly offer blue skies with cooler temperatures overnight and warm days
Whilst Zimbabwe is best known for the Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba and Hwange Game Park, it has so many other unique offerings which includes eleven national parks, numerous ancient ruins, with Khami and Great Zimbabwe being the best known of them, the amazing rock formations and San Bushmen paintings in the Matopas, the waterfalls and stunning views in the eastern highlands and of course the amazing wildlife. Zimbabwe has over 350 species of mammals, more than 500 birds, and 131 fish species.
Despite Zimbabwe receiving a lot of bad press around its politics and economic problems it remains a very safe place to visit with its greatest attribute being the friendliness of its people. The numerous glowing testimonials on the various travel review websites is testament to the warmth of the welcome you will receive, the beauty of the country and the quality of the properties.
We in Zimbabwe look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful country.
