What you can’t miss
In spite of its disastrous economy, a trip to Zimbabwe is worth it. A lot of savage nature, breathtaking landscapes, vast national parks. And obviously, we can’t forget about the Victoria falls. Tourists don’t have anything to fear in Zimbabwe, on the contrary. They are welcomed by the population with open arms. Attention campers, food products are very expensive because nowadays everything in Zimbabwe is imported.

Population and Politics
In Zimbabwe, the population density is a lot more important than in the neighboring countries. With 12 million inhabitants for a surface of 390 000 km2, we count 22 inhabitants per km2. The majority of the population lives in the great cities as Harare and Bulawayo. Zimbabwe is independent since 1980 and was governed by Robert Mugabe since 1980. Since November 2017, a military coup put an end to the dictatorship of the Mugabe couple, after 37 years of rule.
We have always talked about democracy in Zimbabwe even though for some years elections have been controversial. On November 24th 2017, former vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa was named president. Since 2000, Zimbabwe is one of the poorest countries in the world. Once the breadbasket of Africa, it has had to face an economic crisis caused by the anti-white politics of the former despot. For tourists, Zimbabwe is a very safe country where food is very expensive.
