A range of interesting discoveries.

Zimbabwe, a destination for southern Africa is unclear. Indeed, only a few Europeans can locate it on a map and yet just a magic word can help them "Victoria Falls", located on the Zambezi River, discovered by David Livingstone. Zimbabwe lies between the Limpopo River in the south and the Zambezi River to the north.

Why choose this destination? Zimbabwe is a warm welcoming country. Is this your first time to visit Africa? This country has the advantage of a wide range of interesting discoveries: its peoples (Shona and Ndebele), history (Great Zimbabwe), geology (Matopos) cave paintings (Matopos), its fauna and flora (national parks), gigantism (Victoria Falls), sports (walking, rafting, bungee jumping).

Do you miss something there? The stars? No problem, Lake Kariba offers us most of the time, immense pure and clear horizons. Think about it!
