'Disneyland of Africa' may soon be added to Zimbabwe tours

A tour of Zimbabwe is one of the most unique travel experiences in the world, and local officials are in the process of making it even more appealing to visitors. There are plans in the works to build a so-called "Disneyland of Africa" near the famed Victoria Falls, BBC News reported. While the proposed multi-million dollar complex is sure to draw tourists, there are still many other reasons to explore the unrivaled nature in Zimbabwe. 

Although the new attraction will be built near Victoria Falls, the cascading waterfall  is already one of the most alluring natural landmarks in the world. Located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, the falls stand about 354 feet tall and span a section of land more than 5,604 feet across, which results in the largest sheet of falling water in the world. Admiring the falls - which are known as the Smoke that Thunders in local dialect - from afar is often enough, but the more daring visitors often elect to sit in the Devil's Pool, a naturally forming pool located on the edge of the falls.

Of course, Victoria Falls is not the only reason to visit Zimbabwe. It is also home to some of the world's most famous wildlife, especially in Hwange National Park. The largest game reserve in the country gives visitors the chance to see many of Africa's iconic residents. More than 100 mammal species call the park home, including elephants, hyenas, wild African dogs and cheetahs. In addition to the diverse wildlife, there is plenty of beautiful scenery to take in while being driven through the park by experienced guides.
