This traveller is centimeters away from going over the top of a huge waterfall, laughing in the face of a 108 meter (354 ft) drop. This is Victoria Falls on the Zambia - Zimbabwe border where 3000 cubic meters of water per second drop into an abyss.
Zimbabwe like a lot of African countries follows a certain set of rules. Love or hate them, these must be followed or you will find yourself in a tough situation.
Zimbabwe was once an African powerhouse. A nation at the forefront of regional politics. But in recent decades, its become a country in political turmoil, split by Robert Mugabe and not the ideal spot for easy-going tourists.
Zimbabwe like most African nations has a host of dangerous diseases. Most are easy to avoid if you follow some basic rules, and the country isn't a lot more dangerous than most of its neighbours.
Southern Africa compared to other parts of the continent is relatively safe and peaceful, but Zimbabwe has hard a dark past over the last few decades, and the turmoil isn't over.
