Input on 2010 travel to Zim

Jump to last reply

I am planning a safari for 2010 (either June or Sept). This will be our 4th in southern Africa, so by now we know what we like: small camps, seclusion, no jeep traffic jams at sightings, en-suite bathrooms, open vehicles, hides, no need for over-the-top luxury, no kids. I have narrowed it down to Zambia for this trip (9 days at Kaingo and Mwamba), but was considering fitting in some time in Zim. If you have been there recently (May/June/July/Aug 2009) I would love to hear what you think about the situation there. Did you feel safe? Were the parks poached out? Are the camps run down?

In particular, I am curious about the following camps, and would love to hear from anyone who has been recently there with some feedback:

Hwange NP - Little Makalolo and Somalisa
Matusadona - Rhino Island Safari Camp
Mana Pools - Vundu Tented Camp and Ruckomechi Camp

I'd also like to know how full the camps were when you were there.

We enjoy all wildlife sightings from the big to the small, including birds, but I would love to spend some time with wild dogs. We are also avid photographers.

I have heard that travelling to Mana Pools is fine right now, but Hwange has felt the pinch more. I have never heard much on Matusadona.

Looking forward to receiving your input.
