Things To See in Zimbabwe
- Hwange National Park. The park, which is located between Victoria Falls and Bulawayo, is home to over 100 distinct animal species and over 400 different bird species. It is one of Africa’s few major elephant sanctuaries, containing approximately 30,000 elephants.
- Matobo Hills National Park. This tiny park near Bulawayo, often known as Matopos, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003 for its unique natural characteristics and fauna.
- Mana Pools National Park. Mana Pools National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located south of the Zambezi River in northern Zimbabwe. It is a secluded area that welcomes a small number of safari enthusiasts with an abundance of elephant, hippo, lions, antelope, giraffe, and other creatures, as well as over 350 bird species, amid beautiful settings.
- Great Zimbabwe Ruins. Great Zimbabwe ruins are located in Masvingo, Zimbabwe’s third city, and are the remnants of one of Africa’s largest civilizations after the Pharaohs: the Kingdom of Great Zimbabwe controlled the region from present-day Zimbabwe east to Botswana and south to Mozambique in the late Iron Age (between 1100 and 1450 AD). The remains of the once-impressive granite stone structure stretch 1,800 acres (7 km2) and encompass a radius of 100 to 200 kilometers (160 to 320 km).
