Of all the countries we have travelled in throughout the world we have always found the Zimbabwean people the most friendly, warm and welcoming. 15 years of political turmoil has not dampened this spirit and Zimbabwe is emerging once again as a force in tourism. The mighty Zambezi River forms its northern border providing wonders such as the Victoria Falls and Mana Pools National Park and experiences including house boating on Lake Kariba and canoeing down the Zambezi Valley. Together with unique landscapes such as the Matopos, impressive historical ruins including Great Zimbabwe and the world class wildlife haven of Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe has so much and more to offer.

Zimbabwe’s climate is tropical, although the altitude of the higher areas does create cooler regions. May to September is the dry season when the country sees very little rain. November to March is typically the rainy season with tropical storms common. Due to its great climate, Zimbabwe is a perfect place to visit any time of the year.
