Zimbabwe Trip

Jump to last reply

Hi all:
First of all, I would like to thank all of those who have been so generous with travel information over the past several months.
Secondly, I would like to continue the sharing. So what follows is an account of our trip to Zimbabwe November 8 - 18.
My wife and I left with approximately 75 others from Columbia, South Caronlia, USA. We landed in Atlanta and then were off to London overnight. After about 10 hours in London, we again left overnight on Air Zimbabwe for Harare, Zimbabwe. We arrived early in the morning, and spent the balance of the day resting from the travel.
The next day, we again flew Air Zimbabwe to Victoria Falls. We were then transferred to the A'Zambezi River Lodge. While we were there, we took a helicopter ride over the Falls, took a sundowner cruise, and went to the traditional village to watch traditional dancing. There I ate impala, warthog, and a caterpillar.
The next day, we toured the Falls itself, and then went by bus to Hwange Safari Lodge. We went on a safari drive that evening and one early the next morning (not nearly enough for me). We saw elephants, a gorgeous male lion, buffalo, zebra, giraffes, and numerous birds. This was great for a taste, but my wife and I plan to go to Botswana in June for a more extensive safari holiday.
That evening we went back to Victoria Falls and did alot of shopping at the craft market. Then back to Harare.
The next day, we took a three hour bus tour to Mutare, where we stayed at the Holiday Inn.
We were in Mutare for all or part of 4 days. While we were there, we went shopping in town, went on tour of the Eastern Highlands (if you go, you have to go to Tony's Coffee and Dessert Shop), and we went to Africa University. Africa University was the real focus of our trip. It is the only United Methodist supported institution of higher learning on the continent of Africa. By the way, I am a United Methodist pastor.
Mutare is off the tourist trail and was a refreshing contrast to Victoria Falls.
Then we drove 3 hours back to Harare, and spent 20 hours in flight on three different aircraft. I'm still recovering from the jet lag!!
We had a GREAT time. I realize that this message is scant on details, but it would take 10 times this amount of space to fill in the blanks. Therefore, if anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me or post to this message.
Joey
