Voice of Travelers to Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is the best place for handmade products

I had heard a lot about Africa, especially Zimbabwe. I found that Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, is the best place to travel to. There is a place called Doon Estate in Harare where you can buy many handmade products. I’ve purchased things like the confectionery, coffee mugs, leather bags and much more. I really enjoyed Victoria Falls for bungee jumping, it was a remarkable experience. Please note that once you have booked your ticket to go bungee jumping, it will not be refunded should you change your mind. It was a great experience, and you will definitely enjoy your time in Zimbabwe.

Victoria Falls is a Must-See!

I booked my air ticket to Zimbabwe and stayed in the capital for about two days. Then I booked another ticket to Victoria Falls. You should definitely consider adding a ticket to Victoria Falls! There are beautiful sights of famous waterfalls, mountains, and much more. Zimbabwe is a great place to visit in Africa. The locals there are helpful and friendly, the view is amazing and the weather is awesome.

The Zambezi River

My visit to Zimbabwe was a unique visit. I'm a seasoned fisherman who needs to constantly be fishing. I booked an air ticket for Fly Dubai from Dubai to Zimbabwe to visit the Zambezi River. I had read that the Zambezi River is one of the largest rivers in Africa, covering up to 2700 kilometers from Zimbabwe. I was aiming for tiger fishing in Africa. There were all types of facilities for fishing like cottages, camps, boats, cooler boxes and much more. The people there were nice, and the accommodation was luxurious. I also purchased a ticket for Hwange National Park, which is one of the most popular tourist attraction in Zimbabwe. It has almost 500 species of animals and birds. My trip to Zimbabwe is unforgettable. I cannot wait to go back!
