Zimbabwe, a top destination to travel

The experts at Lonely Planet have spoken- and Acacia Africa strongly agrees! Zimbabwe- Southern Africa’s under-appreciated treasure- has been resoundingly voted one of the ten best travel destinations worldwide. Keen to head somewhere a little different in the New Year? Then Zim [as it’s fondly known] could well be the perfect choice for you. Keep reading and find out more.

What makes Zimbabwe so special?

Despite international press and their occasional doom-ladened headlines, travellers ‘on the ground’ have long known that Zimbabwe is a shining star of travel destinations. It’s one of the safest places around to visit, and the friendly nature of the locals adds that extra polish to the experience. Their hope and vibrancy is palpable, and tourists here are viewed as helping to support them on their way to a better future, something Zimbabwe has lacked on the international political front as something of a forgotten country, so your custom is always welcome and deeply appreciated. Don’t think the facilities open to you suffer, however- you’ll find world-class accommodation and superb wildlife reserves for you to explore and enjoy.

Add to that a rich and vibrant wildlife heritage [including ample parks packed with the Big 5], world-heritage level archaeological sites to visit and explore ancient history and picturesque landscapes comprising everything from iconic African bush to forest and soaring mountainsides. Sit quietly for a moment, and you’ll likely hear the other key drawcard calling to you- the deafening roar of one of the most spectacular natural wonders around, the ‘smoke-that-thunders’ herself. Mighty Victoria Falls lies on the border with Zambia and she beckons you to come and play! With less traffic on this side of the border, you’re sure to have a superlative experience.
