DELRAY BEACH, FL, June 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Instead of a stereotypical gift like a printed tie or cufflinks, why not treat the most important man in your life to an exotic voyage in the world's most prestigious playground? African Travel, Inc. offers a compilation of unforgettable experiences in Zimbabwe's land of exotic excitement - perfect for the quintessential man and his adventurous family on Father's Day.
"Zimbabwe Beyond the Rainbow" is an enthralling juxtaposition of breathtaking landscapes, fine cuisine, and the unbridled thrill of the African wilderness. Melt into the rhythmic heartbeat of Africa while sipping sundowners aboard a cruise up the Zambezi River, peppered with submerged crocodiles and pods of hippopotamuses. The pace escalates with a stimulating hike through Africa's most vocal rain forest as "the Smoke that Thunders" crashes on all sides. Marvel at the grandeur of the world's ultimate waterfall as more than 100 million gallons of water crash through the channels of UNESCO's Victoria Falls - and the continual rainbows that play in the mist.
Venture to an authentic Zimbabwean village and learn the ancient secrets and customs of a traditional medicine healer. Savor a succulent four-course barbecue feast and give Dad the chance to prove his fearlessness by sampling the mopane worms. Later, you are invited to join in the drumming circle as Amakwezi dancers demonstrate how the locals celebrate.
After a transcendent journey both over and under the rainbows, fly to the land of the giants in Zimbabwe's largest game reserve. Hwange National Park is home to more than one hundred animal species, including buffalo, zebra, giraffe, hyenas, lions and massive herds of elephants. Enjoy up-close-and-personal accommodations in a classic tented camp, right next to the well-traveled wildlife path.
Finally, follow the elephants northeast to the remote Mana Pools National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers sweeping views of the mountains bordering Africa's Great Rift Valley and acacia trees overlooking the Zambezi River. Paddle your own canoe down the Zambezi, watching for hidden hippos and the flying spectacle above. Cap your evenings off with gourmet dinners, lively storytelling around the campfire, and sapphire skies decorated with an infinite blanket of stars.
Celebrate Father's Day with an adventure that is as inspiring as he is. We Know Africa - and we know that you'll love it.
