The Great Zimbabwe Ruins are a must-see landmark, dating back to the 11th century, and offer a glimpse into the fascinating history of the Kingdom of Zimbabwe. But that's not all Zimbabwe has to offer. It is also home to Victoria Falls, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Located on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known as the "smoke that thunders". For a luxury cultural holiday in Zimbabwe, consider staying at the Victoria Falls Hotel, which offers breathtaking views of the falls.
