Situated in the heart of the southern tip of Africa, surrounded by Mozambique (to the east), South Africa (to the south), Botswana (to the southwest) and Zambia (to the north), Zimbabwe is a fairly small country, but full of plenty of incredible outdoor opportunities.
While rafting on the Zambezi River en route to seeing Victoria Falls is easily the most popular outdoor activity, hiking and mountaineering in the rugged eastern highlands are also quite popular.
Rising to 2,592 meters in elevation, Mount Nyangani is the highest peak in the country and can be hiked in a couple of days. Various other minor peaks nearby make the national park in which it is located (Nyanga National Park) a popular destination for hikers looking for some great views.
Zimbabwe is a fairly small, landlocked country, but boasts very different climates. The lowlands are often hot and humid throughout the dry season, while the highlands are often cooler and drier.
Any trip to Zimbabwe will likely begin with a flight into Victoria Falls Airport (VFA). Most guides will opt to meet you here and provide transport to the start of the trip.
