A trip to Zimbabwe offers a meeting with interesting history, welcoming locals, the majestic Victoria Falls, unspoilt nature and exciting wildlife.
Hwange National Park is the country's largest national park with a rich wildlife, especially known for its large elephant flocks. Hwange has one of the densest concentrations of animals in Africa and a large species of mammals, over 100 registered species.
Just off Hwange lies the Victoria Falls, and a trip to Zimbabwe is not complete without visiting the country's largest attraction. Here the Zambezi life becomes Mosi-oa-Tunya - "The smoke as a thunder". The falls are the best to see from the Zimbabwe side.
Zimbabwean largest ethnic group is the Shona people, known for their many sculptures and carvings. The art is colorful and expressive and often politically inspired.
Zimbabwe was a British colony from 1923 to 1965, when the white minority rule in Rhodesia declared the country independent. However, this was not internationally recognized. The country became an independent nation for 1980 after a liberation war, and took the name Zimbabwe after the ruin city "The Great Zimbabwe". Since the liberation, the country has experienced political unrest which in 2008 led to hyperinflation. Although the economy is better now, Zimbabwe still has major challenges. Tourism begins to return to Zimbabwe, and as a visitor, one contributes to a better future for the country.
