Zimbabwe has been named as a Top 2014 Destination in the Travel Section of the UK Financial Times

Chosen by travel industry leaders, the list of these top destinations reads as follows:-
Iran
Patagonia
Japan
Vietnam
Mongolia
Zimbabwe
Södermalm, Stockholm, Sweden


 
Mana Pools (above) and Hwange National Parks are singled out as highlights of a Zimbabwe travel experience by Chris McIntyre, MD of specialist tour operator, Expert Africa.   Says Chris:

"Among the Africa cognoscenti, there's definitely excitement about Zimbabwe, because the quality of guiding is so good and because it's now seen as socially acceptable to go there, provided you stay in small, owner-run places," says Chris McIntyre of Expert Africa.

Highlights include Hwange National Park and Mana Pools, a series of oxbow lakes that are ideal for walking safaris as well as offering the chance to spot game while canoeing on the nearby Zambezi.

"The last time I was there I crawled to within 6 metres of a pack of wild dogs and the only protection the guide had was his hat", says McIntyre. "You just don't get that kind of experience elsewhere."

Hwange National Park is the best one for the wildlife lover. It offers a great range of 400 bird species, world's famous elephant population and it gives an elegant option of self-catering lodges, loge,bars etc... Now, I have an again plan to go there again after completed my tour.
