From the earliest times to the present, Zimbabwe has boasted a rich cultural heritage, archaeological treasures and friendly people. With an extensive network of national parks, Zimbabwe offers an abundant and rich mix of wildlife, impressive landscapes, and famously, the magnificent Victoria Falls. Game viewing enthusiasts can get close to nature on game drives, walking safaris or even on a water-based safari by houseboat. For the adventurous spirit, enjoy zip-lining, white-water rafting or even bungee jumping.
- Landlocked and bound by mighty rivers and mountains, much of Zimbabwe is a high rolling plateau known as the Highveld. Each side of this central ridge forms the country's watershed, where streams flow southeast to the Limpopo and Sabi Rivers and northwest to the Zambezi.
- Zimbabwe has more official languages than any other country in the world. The 16 official languages of Zimbabwe are Chewa, Chibarwe, English, Kalanga, Koisan, Nambya, Ndau, Ndebele, Shangani, Shona, Sotho, Tonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa, and the Zimbabwean Sign Language.
- Zimbabwe has a moderate climate with rain from November to May. Days are often sunny with dramatic late afternoon thunderstorms. September to October is the most popular time for wildlife viewing.
