What to see & do

There are four UNESCO World Heritage sites in Zimbabwe: Mana Pools National Park, Matobo National Park, Victoria Falls, and the Great Zimbabwe Ruins. Mana Pools National Park is one of the most popular parks in the country, featuring a wide variety of flora and wildlife. The term “Mana” refers to the four pools from the Zambezi River. Located in the Matobo Hills, the Matobo National Park is home to an Intensive Protection Zone that serves as a breeding ground for black and white rhinoceros. It is also rich in many other types of wild animals and bird species, specifically black eagles usually found on top of rock formations. The park also serves as a venue for important ceremonies of the locals. Visitors flock the Victoria Falls National Park, about one kilometre from the town centre at the north-western part of the country. It is home to the world-famous Victoria Falls which is considered as the largest sheet of falling water in the world. Great Zimbabwe Ruins is located in the south-eastern part of the country, near Lake Mutirikwe and the town of Masvingo. It features archaeological remains of an ancient city made of stone. It is believed that construction started in the 11th century and lasted until the 14th century.

Other must-see destinations are the Hwange National Park (largest park in the country, located about an hour away from Victoria Falls), Kariba (known for its African wildlife and Lake Kariba which is one of the largest freshwater man-made lakes and reservoirs in the world), and Chimanimani National Park which is located at the eastern boundary of Chimanimani district near the Mozambique border. The area is ideal for camping and hiking, offering challenging trails and great views of unspoiled wilderness.
