Additional attractions include Mana Pools in the Zambezi Valley, which offers the most exciting and adventurous canoe trails, and Matusadona on the shores of Lake Kariba is unbeatable for its thrilling African sunsets. In the far eastern sector, the Eastern Highlands offer great hiking and birding trails, while the impressive ruins of Great Zimbabwe in the central regions are well worth a visit for the history buffs.
