Welcome to Zimbabwe ...
A World of Wonders!
I love Zimbabwe! The local people are so welcoming after 10 yrs of government nightmares! It is a game rich, beautiful country. Big smiles from the local people, they are exuberant to have us back visiting and enjoying their game rich lovely country!
It is a country of remarkable diversity and easily explored as each of the many highlights are often not more than a couple of hours drive from another, making it a lovely guided touring destination.
Victoria Falls, with the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel, has always been the centerpiece of the Zimbabwean tourism industry and it provides an ideal springboard to explore other parts of the country, including Hwange National Park, famous for its elephant herds and lion prides, and the expansive Lake Kariba.
Further afield lies Mana Pools, on the Lower Zambezi, renowned for canoe trails that are not for the faint of heart! If you love up close and personal and love to canoe, this is a MUST do! Bulawayo (Zimbabwe's second city) and the Matobo Hills offer amazing giant granite rock formations, a lovely place to hike and photograph, it is stunning! The Great Zimbabwe Ruins and the remarkable Eastern Highlands, with deeply forested and mountainous scenery.
One of my favorite seldom visited areas, is in the far south eastern corner of the country. In 1994, the not-for-profit Malilangwe Trust was established as a result of the largest ever single donor investment in Zimbabwe, in order to purchase, protect, and manage the extraordinary wilderness area next to the Gonarezhou National Park in southeastern Zimbabwe. This is where Singita Pamushana resides, a wonderful area and should be added to your bucket list!
