Zimbabwe Travel Guide: 1,271 reviews and 3,470 photos

This beautiful country has long been a popular tourist destination due to the huge variety of environments, and the amazing cultural, wildlife and landscape heritage. Zimbabwean people remain among the friendliest and most capable in Africa, and the country will undoubtedly rise again to become one of Africa's most popular destinations. Encompassing many ecosystems, landlocked Zimbabwe is home to the magnificent Victoria Falls, the Eastern Highlands mountain range, tranquil Lake Kariba, the largest ancient structure south of the Sahara at Great Zimbabwe and National Parks home to a great variety of wildlife species.
Main cities in the country are Harare the capital, Bulawayo in the South West of the country, Victoria Falls situated in the North West and Mutare in the East of the country.
One of the impressive cultural heritage sites of the country can be found at Masvingo, where the Great Zimbabwe Ruins are at home.
Yet with the current political problem under the inhuman regime of Robert Mugabe few tourists venture here escaping the problems of officials, border control and police. Sadly I was victim of such an attack myself when I was arrested for stealing my own car at the Victoria Falls border post.

    Excellent tips you have here! Sadly, I have to agree with you on the present situation in Zimbabwe. My wife and I are planning to visit Zambia next year and would really like to return to Zimbabwe too - but it won't happen if present conditions persist.
