After a dampening from a period of political turbulence, Zimbabwe reemerges strong, ready to offer visitors a glimpse into the unique beauty of the lands. Game reserves are pristine, providing wonderful opportunities to see the majestic wildlife venture through the magnificent wilderness. One of the seven wonders of the world, Victoria Falls, calls the country home. With the powerful current of water that plunges deep into the Zambezi Gorge, this site is aptly named "The Smoke that Thunders". Seeing and hearing its force is a beautiful reminder of Mother Nature's strength. We uncover more of it at Hwange National Park, a reserve known as one of the last great elephant sanctuaries. See these gentle giants roam through the arid landscape as we drive through scattered woodlands of teak. For the intrepid traveller, perhaps a journey by canoe down the Zambezi and into Mana Pools National Park, getting up close to the crocodiles and hippos. Back on land we take a drive to the local markets, getting to know the Zimbabweans and their everyday lives.
