Zimbabwe (Bradt Travel Guides)
By

Rating
This new third edition of Bradt's Zimbabwe remains the most authoritative and trusted guide available, written in an engaging and entertaining style by an expert author who has been visiting Zimbabwe annually for nearly 30 years and now spends six months of each year there. In this new thoroughly revised edition, Paul Murray brings a particular focus for those wanting to travel independently as well as visitors on organised tours. Game viewing in some of Africa's greatest national parks is a rewarding experience and this guide offers in-depth information on the facilities, advice on itinerary planning as well as how to select a safari. Accommodation is covered with up-to-date information on everything from luxury safari camps to budget stays for younger travellers who arrive overland, heading for the fast flowing waters of the Zambezi gorge. There are also details of en-route accommodation not found in other guides following a complete countrywide review of all destinations that are key to independent travellers, making this by far the most up-to-date guidebook to Zimbabwe on the market. As political tension relaxes, wildlife enthusiasts and curious tourists are returning to Zimbabwe, a country which not so long ago was southern Africa's premier tourist destination, with some of the finest national parks in Africa, stunning landscapes and an abundance of wildlife. The mighty Zambezi River offers adventure holidays, and Victoria Falls will leave visitors breathless, while the range of birdlife draws enthusiasts year-round.
