A Taste of Zimbabwe Itinerary
For travel adventure in Africa, Zimbabwe provides a plethora of experiences. Travel to Zimbabwe and visit Victoria Falls, the City of Bulawayo and the Hwange National Park.
Days 1-2 Victoria Falls
Start the journey near one of nature's most amazing wonders. Mighty Victoria Falls is an awesome sight to behold and a fitting start to this trip through Zimbabwe. On a visit to Victoria Falls, witness the spray flung high into the air as torrents of white water dramatically rumble over the edge and into the canyon below. The falls are seriously powerful so be prepared to get wet.
