Back from Zimbabwe- One of the best Trips!!!!

Jump to last reply

We just returned from Zimbabwe and wanted all the Fodorites and Africa lovers to really consider Zimbabwe as an amazing Safari destination. The experience of walking with probably the best and knowledgable guides we have ever had made this a once in a lifetime trip. We visited Hwange, Matusadona and Mana Pools as well as Victoria Falls. The trip was organized by Doug MacDonald who was beyond wonderful and personally guided us for our 7 nights in Mana Pools. I can not highly recommend him enough. He had the best sense of humor and was cautious when he needed to be and we never felt unsafe even when we were sitting with a lot pride of lions a stone through away or sitting under a tree where I thought the elephant was going to touch me or having a mama and baby rhino just a few feet again as we watching the baby nurse. The experience of following tracks and discovering the animals was a whole other levlel of safari experience, dirtier for sure, but unforgettable. I also will say that for all you elephant lovers, Hwange had elephants, elephants and more elephants, up close and personal especially at Somalisa where they came and drank out of the old swimming pool as we sat about five feet away. We we a little hesitant about choosing Zimbabwe initially but I can only say that now I could probably have my picture on the travel poster to See Zimbabwe!
