Vic Falls

Mugabe

Mugabe is doing to black people what the west has always done by proxy but refuse to confront that guilt and responsibility. Zim used to be called the bread basket of Africa, its core white farmers mobilizing its cheap black labor to grow huge cash-crops and easily feed the country and those...

town is tourist trap - unlike rest of the country

Victoria Falls is the number one destination for most visitors to Zimbabwe (or indeed Southern Africa) and must surely be one of the most memorable sights in the world. The Zambezi River expands to an incredible width of over a mile before thundering 100 metres down a sheer chasm and into...

“Gweru,walking with lions”

published 12/06/2001

Hard to beat walking with lions!

A little pricey.

Gweru – Walking with Lions In Gweru there is a little place called Antelope Park. Strange name I thought for somewhere where I was going to be able to walk with lion cubs. The cubs that they have there had been abandoned by their mothers. I wasn’t to sure about it when our truck driver first told...

Beautiful country, wonderful wildlife

Infrastructure isn't the best

I travelled around Zimbabwe with my wife (Debby) in February 1999. This was lucky as it was only a little while later that the problems started. This article is designed to be a general overview of what we did while in the country. I plan (within my time constraints) to have a look at specific...

Current unrest

Zimbabwe is one of the most amazing countries I have ever visited. I went for three weeks in 1992 flying to Harare and then went round the country in an old army truck camping as we went. The highlights for me in these three weeks were: 1. Bulawayo - go and visit the steam train museum. We went...

Don't let the media's review on Zimbabwe put you off going there. It's one of the most beautiful and unspoilt countries i've ever visited. The problems are now purely political and barely affect the day-to-day goings on there. I recently stayed with some friends in Harare and believe me, we...

Possible threat to foreign nationals

Being a British woman who lived in Zimbabwe for 2 1/2yrs, only returning to the UK in April '00, I can sadly no longer recommed visiting Zimbabwe, at the present moment in time.

published 10/11/2003

Cheap, beautiful weather, friendly, relaxing

Current economic situation

I go to Zimbabwe every year for a holiday firstly because i've got family there but secondly because it's the most amazing country i've ever been to. The weather is gorgeous - lovely hot sunny days, the country is beautiful - open land with trees and birds singing, the people are friendly and...
