zimbabwe was at the top of my personal africa bucket list and is easily one of the best places to visit in africa (which i can confidently say following the recent regime change). most visitors base their travels in the country around victoria falls town because of range of activities which center around the mosi-ao-tunya (the locals name for victoria falls and translates as 'the smoke that thunders') which include bungee jumping whitewater rafting on the lower zambezi river microlight flights river cruises and so much more. and it's it's proximity to the zambia and botswana borders for those considering an overland safari.
there are also more incredible national parks scattered across the country with hwange lake kariba and matobo being the most famous. there are also a few of museums scattered around the country and the incredible balancing rocks just outside the capital harare. zimbabwe operate on usd currency and victoria falls is quite westernized making it the perfect 'africa for beginners' spot.
