Zimbabwe is a country that offers a surprising diversity and impressive scenery for its small size.
Zimbabwe is a landlocked country in southern Africa bordering South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique and Botswana. It is an exciting country appealing to outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers from the grand and famous Victoria Falls to the natural beaty of the Motopo Hills and their huge boulders to the ancient Great Zimbabwe ruins going back to Africa's great ancestry. The Victoria Falls are one of the great natural wonders of the world. The mile-wide (2km) water fall creates a cloud of mist that can be seen up to 20 miles (32km) away. It is one of Zimbabwe's most popular tourist destinations. It is also a popular adrenaline adventure destination with white water rafting and bungee jumping into the nearby Zambezi River gorge.
