Zimbabwe is home to one of most breathtaking waterfalls
in the world, Victoria Falls. Known locally as the smoke
that thunders, the waterfall was renamed by David Livingstone,
after Queen Victoria. Spectators can view the 2 kilometre
wide waterfall from a small chasm that faces the falls head
The name Zimbabwe originally derives from "houses of
stone", due to the vast stone complexes that spanned
the medieval Munhumutapa Empire. A powerful kingdom founded
upon the gold trade, it is believed the ancient city stretched
over 200 square miles.
We have a range of volunteering projects on offer in Hwange
National park. One of our most exciting volunteer programs
is our lion breeding project in the Zimbabwe midlands. Volunteers
will nurture and tend to lion cubs until they are strong enough
to be released into the wild. Volunteers can also help park
rangers with the day to day running of the compound.
