Diving in Zimbabwe, you’ll have the rare opportunity of swimming in a landlocked country in south-central Africa that offers a variety of attractions such as Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba, which is an inland sea that is over 200 Km long (124 miles) and Chinhoyi Caves. The majority of their rain falls in the summer months. We recommend you visit from November to May when you won’t find rain, as it’s dry season and you’ll still find warm temperatures. The best way to arrive is by flying to Harare Airport, its international airport.
