    Nice location, basic accommodation. The room opens straight in to the main eating/lounging area so is a bit noisier than hoped. Reasonable price for Harare, and feels safe/secure.

    ... agreed on meeting at 4pm, however without a phone how could we contact each other? The next process was to find a phone, or better still borrow someone else’s. This was so hard to do! Taurai asked a few people, Zania hung out of the car window and ended up shouting "please". However, in Harare if a total stranger asked for my phone, I think I would also say no! So it was all down to me, within one try I asked two women and ...

    ... days where they will be joined by tens of thousands of Zimbabwe Witnesses and any other persons who may be interested. In fact, Jehovah's Witnesses around the world are involved in a campaign each year to invite the public to their annual convention and this one was no different. Because so many delegates have come from countries far away, it has piqued the curiosity of the Zimbabwe public. Thus, we were expecting many attendees.

    The Satellite phone came in very handy. Dave was now expecting us a day earlier, thanks to the 'looting' baboons. John Braithwaite, your Satellite phone was a Godsend - thanks for lending us this precious mode of communication in times of need! Licking our wounds from the empty coffers and soiled belongings, we headed to Harare to replenish and eliminate the 'smell of baboon' from our luggage, particularly mine, which had been dumped on with a ...

    ... they were both laughing. This is Africa I suppose. Anyway, back to the itinerary. After Martha found a mechanic we were shortly on our way. We drove straight to a school we wanted to support. Nykudya primary school is such an inspirational place, with over 750 students you can really define these teachers as determined. Back in the UK, Martha has linked Ysgol Ylwant (a school in Caerphilly, Wales) to Nykudya! In the future one of our aims is to seek funding in order to ...

    ... It was so exhilarating, I cannot explain how good it felt. There was no one else in the park at this point, probably the main reason why they agreed. Knowing that two people had been bitten before I was extremely cautious.

    Later on that night Richard took us all out for dinner. It was such a nice evening and so hot. Millers restaurant was fairly priced and when the vegetarian pizza came, there was no lie in saying it was one of the best ...
