Victoria Falls – one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World and a UNESCO World Heritage site, the majestic beauty of Victoria Falls is the stuff of legends, romance, and myth. A bucket list destination for many Victoria Falls, also known as the “Smoke that Thunders”, is 1,708 meters (5,604 ft) wide and 109 meters (354 ft) high making it the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.
Hwange National Park – is Zimbabwe’s oldest and largest national park. At 14.651 km² it is practically the same size as the Serengeti National Park (Tanzania) but this is where the similarity ends. The Serengeti is famous for the zebra and wildebeest migration whereas Hwange supports a diversity of wildlife that includes buffalo, sable, roan, lion, cheetah, wild dog, and giraffe as well as plains game. Up to 50,000 elephants migrate between Hwange and Chobe in Botswana. In the dry season, it’s not unusual to see herds of a couple of hundred elephant jostling for position around one of the pumped waterholes.
Lake Kariba – the serenity and beauty that is unique to this massive shimmering water wilderness where elephant and hippo graze peacefully along the shoreline never disappoints. Almost 300 km (186 miles) long and 40 km (25 miles) at its widest point Lake Kariba is the fourth largest manmade lake in the world and world’s largest by volume.
