5 Underrated Non-Safari Destinations In Southern And East Africa

Zimbabwe

Best for: Nature immersion

Often outshined by its neighbour, South Africa, Zimbabwe might be lesser-known as a holiday destination, but the fact that it hosts one of the seven natural wonders of the world should be good enough reason to put it on your radar.

Almost double the height of Niagara Falls, Victoria Falls is best seen up from a helicopter as you take in panoramic views of the natural spectacle d by two countries—Zimbabwe and Zambia—where waters from the Zambezi River upstream cascade into the Victoria Falls gorge, forming an enormous curtain of falling water. 

For adventure seekers who prefer to see the falls up close, choose from an endless selection of adrenaline-pumping activities from gorge swing, white water rafting and bungee jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge.
