One of a handful of African countries with (non natural) great pre-colonial sites remaining such as the ruins of Ruins of Great Zimbabwe.
Modern Zimbabwe is too often in the news for negative reasons. There is actually a lot to like, it is a land of natural beautify with several national parks and the spectacular Victoria Falls within its boundaries. I visited the country to see the falls and found the people welcoming and friendly.
Zimbabwe is another of my favourite countries. And I hope to return to visit the falls again and hopefully visit the ruins as well.
