Known as the Paradise of Africa, Zimbabwe is truly a world of wonders. As Art Promoters, we believe that the growth of tourism in Zimbabwe will lead to greater appreciation and international demand for Zimbabwean Visual Arts as more tourists will get exposed to our visual arts when they visit. As such we always support initiatives that promote Tourism in Zimbabwe.
The most popular tourist attraction in Zimbabwe is the Might Victoria Falls, a massive Waterfall that makes up one of the World’s Eight Wonders. The Victoria Falls is the world’s largest waterfall with a width of 1,708 metres and a height of 108 metres. Located at the boarder of Zimbabwe and Zambia, the Victoria Falls attracts more than one million visitors annually. Activities at the Vic Falls include, bungee jumping, rafting, swimming at the Devil’s Pool, Angel Flights over the falls, game viewing, general sight seeing among other activities. The Victoria Falls really is a place to visit in one’s lifetime; personally I broke down and cried when I first saw the Victoria Falls, I could not resist the clear evidence of God’s greatness.

Though the Victoria Falls is Zimbabwe’s most popular tourist attraction, it is not the only one and may actually not be the best. There is the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe, a range of densely vegetated mountains which make up one of four distinct physiographic divisions on the African continent. Within this range of mountains are a lot of small and big waterfalls such as Matarazi Falls and Nyang’ombe Falls. A lot of hot water springs are located within the mountain range. The Eastern Highlands is evergreen and every direction you look when you are there is a wow view.
Being in Africa, Zimbabwe has jungles and national parks that house animals known as the Big Five; these are Lions, Elephants, Leopards, Buffaloes and Rhinos. Tourists and Wildlife enthusiasts will always get the best treats in Zimbabwe as we have no shortage of wild animals. There are countless National Parks in Zimbabwe with the largest being Hwange National Park close to Victoria Falls and Gonarezhou National Park in the South East of Zimbabwe.
Apart from the few mentioned attractions, Zimbabwe has a lot more attractions, ranging from historical monuments, sunset cruises at Lake Kariba, the diverse culture of our people and a lot more. You just have to come to Zimbabwe and experience the beauty of our nature, our culture, our people and of course our visual arts. It is a trip worth planning.
