Best Zimbabwe Tourist Attractions
Through the past two to three decades, Zimbabwe has struggled with internal political matters that has seen the world as a whole shun the country. Tourism figures during this time have fallen off the cliff and, as a result, the demise of a whole host of lodges, camps and safari operators.
But this is all changing, albeit slowly; it is changing all the same. Tourism figures are gaining momentum, and there is now a lot more interest in travelling within one of Africa's best safari destinations that still does offer fantastic tourist attractions.
As far as wildlife sanctuaries go, Zimbabwe to this day still offers up some of Africa's most fabled offerings: Hwange, Mana Pools, Gonarezhou, Matobo National Parks and there surrounding private wildlife areas. The amazing variety of attractions within the country includes; Victoria Falls, Batoka Gorge, the Zambezi River, Lake Kariba, The Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Chimanimani Mountains and the Zimbabwe Lowveld, to mention only but a few.
Below is a list of the top attractions that we recommend tourists visit when on safari in Zimbabwe. We will be adding more as soon as the need arises.
