An African Safari In Zimbabwe
There are many destinations in Africa where one can go and enjoy safari, but none are quite like Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is a unique and special place within Africa. It is a country that boasts of beautiful landscapes and diverse wildlife. It is a country where all the famous big five animals of Africa (lion, elephant, white/black rhino, leopard and cape Buffalo) live today as they have for thousands of years. This article describes two great destinations in Zimbabwe that visitors to the country should definitely visit if they have the opportunity: antelope park and the Victoria Falls.
The first place that one should visit on safari in Zimbabwe is antelope park. Antelope Park is regarded as Zimbabwe's most popular tourist destination. Antelope Park is home to ALERT – one of the world's leading conservation programmes to help save the African lion from extinction. ALERT is the subject of a major award-winning wildlife documentary which aired to over 3 million people in the UK every week for 2 seasons – "LION COUNTRY"
Your stay at Antelope Park will not only leave you with memories that will last a lifetime, but also with the knowledge that you have personally contributed to the survival of the African Lion. The is truly a great place to experience Africa
Set in over 3000 acres of open savannah grassland, Antelope Park is a unique game reserve and proud to have been chosen one of Southern Africa's "most intriguing destinations". Walk with lions, ride through the wilderness on elephant or horseback, view the abundance of wildlife in the Park or canoe on the scenic lake. During the evening, our exclusive night encounters offer a truly amazing, close up experience of lions hunting in their natural environment. Antelope park is a place like no other.
The second place is the Great Victoria Falls. The Victoria Falls is one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. This natural wonder deserves to be ranked with other remarkable destinations such as the Great Barrier Reef. The shear sound of the water-falls as the breadth of the Zambezi plummets into the giant fissure is a unique and wonderful experience in itself. It is an awe-inspiring marvel that can only be truly experienced in person. Pictures and other forms of representation cannot adequately potray this amazing natural feature.
When the great explorer, David Livingstone, canoed his way gently down the Zambezi River, he encountered the most beautiful sight that he had ever seen in Africa: The Victoria Falls.
Antelope Park and the Victoria Falls are truly special places in Africa. If any traveller to Africa ever has the opportunity to visit any one of these two places, they would surely enjoy and treasure the experience.
