Zimbabwe

  • Clinton and Suzi from Winchester travelled to ZimbabweDear Michele, we flew in safely on Thursday afternoon having had the most wonderful holiday in Zimbabwe. Everything that you fixed for us worked like clockwork and we are extremely grateful to you for all the planning and organisation you put into it. We found the Victoria Falls Hotel beautifully refurbished with the staff as charming and helpful as usual. Thank you for getting us a room overlooking the falls. The food was excellent and we loved our 2 days. I did put one small point on the questionnaire you sent us stating that the street vendors at The Falls were a bit of a nuisance and wouldn’t take no for an answer but on the other hand we appreciate they are unemployed and desperate for money. Camp Hwange was fantastic, the camp was perfect and in a great position. The staff were charming and helpful and the food was excellent. The guiding was exceptional; we had 2 guides Quinn being the senior and Stephen as a second. We walked everyday and did drives too and they did their best to show us as much game as they could. Quinn’s knowledge of the bush and animals was very impressive. Bearing in mind it was early in the season, the grass was still tall, there was a lot of water about due to late rains and the foliage was still on the trees we did extremely well and our last afternoon was memorably spent next to a lion with 2 lionesses and 2 cubs next to their kill – what more can you ask for! As you know we also spent 4 nights on a very smart houseboat on Kariba with friends which was great but fishing for bream not so good! Two nights at Inn on Rupurara at Inyanga was excellent too and I would highly recommend it. Thank you so much for all your organisation, it worked like clockwork and our holiday exceeded our expectations by a long way. We found most people we talked to in Zimbabwe reasonably optimistic and both Vic Falls and Camp Hwange were doing well with visitors from all over the world, but not many British I’m sad to say.Clinton and Suzi from Winchester travelled to Zimbabwe
