The landlocked nation of Zimbabwe finds itself at a slightly higher altitude that its surrounding African neighbors. Lacking coastline gives it this higher altitude, which also affords it slightly cooler temperatures and thus a more comfortable atmosphere for visitors seeking to go game viewing during the day. The country lacks access to waters along the coast, but well makes up for it with ample access to water from its two main river veins, the Zambezi and Limpopo river systems. The topography of the country is a mix mountains and valleys providing habitat to a variety of wildlife. The landscapes range from grasslands, to floodplains, mountains, to a variety of types of woodlands including evergreen forests, rainforest, and acacia woodlands among others. Serene and unspoilt landscapes here are some of the most pristine in all southern Africa, and some of the national parks are difficult to access and traverse, which helps keep human impact to a good minimum.
