Zimbabwe: Things to See and Do

story by: House of Travel

The sight of the Victoria Falls from Zimbabwe is hard to beat. You stand directly across from the falls where you’ll witness masses of water tumbling over the edge with astonishing force. When the water levels are high, be prepared to get saturated from the spray! You can walk along the opposing footpath yourself, or take a guided tour. If you’re feeling adventurous, make the most of the great activities that operate from the Zimbabwe side including white-water rafting and bungee jumping, or if you’re daring enough, take a microlight flight over the top!

Hwange became a national park in 1929. By the 1970s Hwange National Park had one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Although Hwange is Zimbabwe’s  most accessible and wildlife-packed national park, it’s not overcrowded and most vehicles stick to short loop drives within 10km of Main Camp. The best time to visit is the dry season (September and October) when animals congregate around the waterholes.

Lake Kariba is Zimbabwe’s undiscovered riviera! It offers spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing and boating activities. It has lovely temperatures and summers are fairly hot, but in the winter months days are warm and nights are balmy. Lake Kariba is Africa’s largest man-made dam. There are many safari lodges dotted around the shores. 

Mana Pools National Park lies at the heart of the Zambezi Valley. A quick and easy flight from either Victoria Falls or Livingstone, this remote park is known for its spectacular floodplains, riverine woodland and views of the Rift Valley escarpment. As this area holds water all year round, the wildlife viewing is excellent.
