In the Matopos…

We awoke to the silence.  Absolute silence, and this view…

Thank you. It was a magical weekend – I can’t recommend Shumbashaba enough for the “true” Zimboe. It is home…
Please come back and visit again

I won’t Joe – its just whether I can post them…Wordpress is very slow and even on a reasonable connection it takes some time to build. I can’t think what will happen when I get back home! The internet in Zim is worse than the old dial up!

Thanks for that, Bruce. I live in Zimbabwe and deal with the day to day challenges, yet even for me it was a magical experience, a ‘reset’ button was pressed and I’m back, able to deal with it all again! Once again, I can’t stress enough – if you have the opportunity, – add Shumbashaba to your “to do” list. You don’t get “entertainment” (bongo drums at the a’Zambezi,) or loud disco music. Nor do you get to see the Rhino, or Elephant as you do in the Nat Parks, but you do get other things foreigners don’t “get.”
We go to many tourist camps and parks in the course of our work, and yet this one stands out as a “Zimboe” experience of the first order.
