      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.

      Hello from Harare! As mentioned before, due to unrest in the middle part of Mozambique, we have had to re think our route here to Harare, basically taking the long way round Kruger national park, and up through the South of Zim. We set off early enough from Tofo, and made steadily slow progress through Mozambique. The low speed limit of 100kmh and …

      ... from every direction, it can be a little unnerving. A note on cotton-eared marmosets - they are not native to Africa, but rather are from South America. Bally Vaughan ended up with them because some Zimbabweans had them as pets and when those people had to leave the country, they were forced to leave the marmosets behind. We enjoyed meeting them tremendously. They were very curious, wonderful little creatures. Then it was time to go. We could have stayed for hours more- it was a superb ...

      ... three 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 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.

      ... is mostly yellow, but trees are usually green. We checked into our room which is on the fourth floor and faces the park at the tree line. Couldn't be better for a pair of birders. We went down to dinner at the hotel restaurant which served delicious food at a reasonable price. Derek had steak and I had nyangi trout, which we both enjoyed. Then we made it up to our room like sloths and fell into our bed like people with narcolepsy. Twenty hours on a plane will do that to ...

      Walking with Rhinos in $4 Shoes

      ... in $4 tennis shoes. For our second proper day in Zimbabwe, we take an open air jeep to a national park so that we can track rhino on foot. Our guide is named Andy, a white Zimbabwean with a clipped accent, who is probably one of the most terrifying people I've ever met. Formerly a hunter by trade, Andy is a solid man, looking a bit like a cross between the Bush Tucker Man and an evil Santa. He tells us that when we're walking we need to shut up, because ...
