Zimbabwe- The Country Less Explored

What’s there to see?, is the first question most of the people ask me when I talk about a trip to Zimbabwe. Surprisingly, this country is full of natural beauty and has a lot of adventurous experiences to offer. The main attraction is obviously the Victoria Falls, being situated on the Zambezi river dividing Zimbabwe and Zambia. 3 days are enough to take a good feel of this place. Start with Bulawayo, the city depicting different shades of Zimbabwe. Walking is the best way to explore this city, one can see different architectures, museums and interact with the locals, savour local delicacies and drinks. In the evening take the overnight train to Victoria Falls. This place needs no introduction, a look and a walk through it depicts the immense beauty which is a treat to the eyes.

BOTSWANA- Naturally African

The Landlocked Country in the South of African continent, is what we know about Botswana, and many of the people don’t even know about this country, but if you are a wildlife enthusiast, this place has a plethora to offer in terms of flora and fauna. Although, I was there just for a day trip but was enough to get awestruck by the amazing scenes it has to offer. Be it the large groups of the Great African Elephants or Tall Giraffes or Lazy Hippos or fast Leopards, the beauty of Chobe River separating Botswana and Namibia or the Migratory Birds, the list is endless.

At the border between Zimbabwe and Botswana, after completing immigration and sanitizing your shoes so that they don’t contain any weeds, you enter into …
