Zenmap is the official GUI for the Nmap Security Scanner. It is a free and open-source multi-platform program, available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, BSD, etc. It aims to make Nmap simple for newcomers while still offering sophisticated functionality for experienced Nmap users.

Conclusion:

Kali Linux 2021 removed Zenmap from its latest release as Zenmap is no longer maintained upstream. Zenmap relies on Python 2.7, which is deprecated as of January 1st, 2020, and most Linux distributions no longer support it. However, we can still install Zenmap in the latest release of Kali Linux by using this method.
