Wednesday, 4 Dec 2013 | Views [271] | Comments [1]

The last day in Bulawayo proved to be the most relaxed of the entire trip. It started with a ride out with Deb and Catherine to see a charity/Christmas market which was on that day. There were some amazing stalls of local goods, produce and crafts, ... Read more >

Sunday, 1 Dec 2013 | Views [283] | Comments [1]

The drive back to Bulawayo was fairly un eventful. After. Quick trip to Eskys for a much deserved Pink Panther the afternoon was spent shopping in preparation for a braai (this seems to be a southern African thing, it's "like a barbecue only better") ... Read more >

Ivory Lodge - The Place of Elephants was our next destination. We spent 2 nights here and did a couple of evening game drives with the Lodge's guide, Peter. For our first drive we were the only guests in the lodge so it became a kind of private drive ... Read more >

Through Hwange to Ivory Lodge (27/11)

Wednesday, 27 Nov 2013 | Views [158]

The drive from Sinamatella to Ivory Lodge through Hwange was a ral taste of Africa. 130 km over 5 hours on dirt roads with only 3 other vehicles seen all day. The changing scenery as you traverse the park provides a very diverse range of environments ... Read more >

The Falls to Sinamatella (26/11)

Tuesday, 26 Nov 2013 | Views [146] | Comments [1]

The morning of the 26th was the one I had been most nervous about of the rip so far. We were heading from the falls to Sinamatella Camp in Hwange National Park. Sounds simple enough but we were going via the high wire activities available at the top ... Read more >

Monday, 25 Nov 2013 | Views [144]

After a long and somewhat bumpy flatbed journey back to Victoria Falls town, there was just time for a small spot of curio shopping before the pickup for our sunset cruise on the Zambezi. Should you ever find yourself in Victoria Falls, this is an activity ... Read more >

In which Travis and I face (almost) certain death in a crocodile infested river. (25/11)

Monday, 25 Nov 2013 | Views [204]

When anyone says the pickup is at 7am, my advice to you would be "skip it". After all, nothing can be so good it warrants arising at 6am, can it? The answer, surprisingly, is yes it can and white water rafting on the Zambezi is one of those things I ... Read more >

The best so far! (23/11)

Ok, so we're now at the end of our first full day in Vic Falls, and what a day it's been. I had two of the most amazing firsts today. 1. I had my first sighting of the falls themselves. This has to be one of the most awe inspiring sights I have seen ... Read more >

What can I say about Bulawayo? It's a stopping off point on the way to Victoria Falls... It's also home to many of Deb and Amy's family, who are some of the nicest, greatest, friendliest people you will ever meet and it's also Zimbabwe's best kept ... Read more >
