In spite of an improving political situation, Zimbabwe continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons. A power-sharing government headed by Robert Mugabe and Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) leader, Morgan Tsvangirai has pledged to improve the lives of Zimbabweans. Even though the economy is slowly improving, millions are still dependent on food aid. Behind the grim data lies one of southern Africa’s most beautiful countries and despite being forced to sacrifice so much, Zimbabweans have not lost their humour or resolve. With so few visiting the country, those who do can expect royal treatment. Visitors will see a very different image of the country. From absolute wilderness to the ancient ruins of Great Zimbabwe to enjoying the activities of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe offers something for everyone. Zimbabwe is no longer as cheap as it once was, but its richness in culture and colour remain. Colonialism remains etched in all sorts of ways, but local traditions are visible. A country of charm, political intrigue and magnificent wilderness awaits.
