In spite of an improving political situation, Zimbabwe continues being one of southern Africa's most beautiful countries. And despite being forced to sacrifice so much, Zimbabweans have not lost their humour or resolve. With so few visiting the country, travellers will see a very different image of the country, far away from the problems of Zimbabwe. From the absolute wilderness of Mana Pools National Park, the ruins of Great Zimbabwe and the mountains looking over Mozambique in Eastern Zimbabwe, to fine dining in Harare or bungee jumping over Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe offers something for everyone. Zimbabwe is no longer nearly as cheap as it once was, but its richness in culture and colour remain. Colonialism remains etched in all sorts of ways, but local traditions are visible. A country of charm, political intrigue and magnificent wilderness awaits you. Oh, and Zimbabwe's got one of the world's best climates.
