BOTSWANA SOUTH AFRICA ZAMBIA Victoria Falls Stretching over a width of 1700m and standing 108m tall, Victoria Falls is the world's largest waterfall. It must be said that this UNESCO World Heritage site is as powerful as it is beautiful. The numerous exciting activities on offer around the Falls have made it Africa's adrenaline capital. There are also plenty of rewarding wildlife experiences nearby. ESSENTIAL ZIMBABWE 44 Travel Zimbabwe December 2009 0100200km 050100miles Matobo National Park The park's incredible landscape of whaleback dwalas, precariously balanced boulders and granite kopjes is inspiring, and has earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. The emotions evoked by the hills are as old as time - the ancient San people believed the area to be sacred, and over 3000 of their rock art sites are found here. The park also protects healthy numbers of rhino and the world's densest population of leopard. North of Matobo are the World Heritage- listed Khami Ruins, which provide an intriguing look into the ancient Kingdom of Butua. Sentinel This estate is littered with palaeontological and anthropological treasures. Dinosaur fossils are easily observed, and the intact remains of many massospondylus are as close as you'll ever get to Jurassic Park. There are also countless relics of the extinct Mapungubwe civilisation. Nalatale Ruins The remains here are of a city dating back to the Rozwi Empire in the 17th century. The Rozwi defeated the Portuguese in 1693 when they tried to make inroads into the plateau that now forms much of modern- day Zimbabwe. Mana Pools National Park Mana Pools is a magnifi cent 2200- square- kilometre national park that sits along the southern bank of the Zambezi River. A UNESCO World Heritage site, it is justifi ably famous for both canoeing and walking safaris. Close- up encounters with its rich population of wildlife are commonplace. Lake Kariba Created half a century ago by the construction of the Kariba Dam, this lake is now northern Zimbabwe's ultimate site for leisure activities. Locals and tourists alike take to its waters on houseboats to explore its wildlife- laden shores or to angle for bream or tigerfi sh. Matusadona National Park An enchanting landscape composed of fl at plains and rugged mountains, this national park sits on the southern shore of Lake Kariba. A sanctuary for black rhino, it is also still believed to house one of the highest natural lion concentrations in Africa. Chizarira National Park About 50km inland from the western end of Lake Kariba, Chizarira is a remote land of sweetwater springs and seeps, hidden secret valleys and pockets of lush vegetation. Wildlife abounds, lurking between long ridges dominated by mountain acacias. Hwange National Park Known for its thriving population of elephant, Hwange is Zimbabwe's largest protected area. Conservation work has also ensured it has one of the largest groups of African wild dogs on the continent. New horseback safaris have just been introduced, adding another rewarding way to enjoy the park's compelling wildlife.
