Writers dream of travel writing for a living and enjoying the world while being paid. The world offers so much to write about that some popular destinations, such as Europe and the United States, offer a number of examples of great travel writing.
However, even tourists can write about their travel experiences when they visit places that are not a part of the normal vacation or holiday travel itinerary, such as a trip to Africa. Many tourists do not think of Africa as a travel destination, but its countries offer natural wonders that are often missed because of their exotic locations. Zimbabwe is an excellent example of this.
Visiting Zimbabwe is an adventure of a lifetime. Zimbabwe offers one of the world's greatest natural and largest waterfalls called Victoria Falls. Tourist visiting the falls must first visit the city of Johannesburg. It is a popular destination for tourists staying overnight before they begin their flight to Victoria Falls and other parts of Africa. Select a Lodge near the airport since many offer shuttle service to the airport and area sites.
In the morning, travelers will take a flight to Victoria Falls to stay at one of the local area lodges. Some are privately owned and are located walking distance walk from the falls. Certain lodges even provide their own tour directors to book tours to other parts of Zimbabwe.
While staying at the falls plan an overnight trip to one of the national parks in the area such as Hwange National Park for a photo safari. A chance to see some of Africa’s diverse wildlife cannot be missed. Other activities in the area surrounding Victoria Falls include canoe safaris, elephant back safaris where visitors ride on elephants to explore the bush and for the adventurous bungi jumping or gorge swinging.
