Discovering the recovering beauty of Zimbabwe

On the 17th September a truck full of excited adventurer’s set off from Johannesburg to be the first guests on our 16 Day Camping, Zimbabwe Rediscovered Tour.  Zimbabwe has really come a long way in the last 3 years and has been working at re-establishing it’s National Parks and getting the basics back into good working order.  Zimbabwe’s people have always valued having visitors in their country and now they have the opportunity of welcoming travellers back to their most incredible homeland.

One of our agents, Chris du Preez, joined the tour and is absolutely raving about it!  Chris’ highlights included game viewing in Hwange National Park, the two night canoe adventure on the Zambezi River and the Great Zimbabwe Ruins.  The spectacular scenery and unique activities certainly make up for some of the longer days on the road.

Below are some pictures from Chris’ tour, if you’d like more information, please contact me at .  You can also see a full itinerary of our 2011 and 2012 tours on our website (30% discount for 2011 departures)
