Between Zimbabwe and Zambia the Zambezi River has carved a deep, broad valley through some of Africa’s oldest rocks. This area of flat valley floor and abrupt great-rift walls is the region most often referred to as the Zambezi Valley. During your Zimbabwe tour you will see that it is an area of heart-stopping beauty, vast sweeping savannas graced with stately trees, backed by the distant fringe of the escarpment, heron blue in the soft air. Well watered and much of it inaccessible, it is a natural haven for wildlife. Between Kariba and the Mozambique border all of the Zimbabwe side of the valley is devoted to wildlife use of one kind or another.
