Zimbabwe is a landlocked country located in the southern part of the continent of Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers. Major travel destinations include Victoria Falls, twice as tall as Niagara Falls and several times longer, and the vast Mana Pools National Park.
When changes were made to the Land Reform programme in 2000, the Zimbabwean tourism industry suffered a decline of around 75%. This had a huge effect on the economy and thousands of jobs were lost as a result. Several major airlines also pulled services at this time.
Zimbabwe is no longer as cheap as it once was, but the richness of its culture and stunning natural beauty remain. If you're planning to travel to Zimbabwe, be sure to check government warnings and travel advice.
