      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 …

      We had reserved rooms for ourselves for the 2 nights, and 2 more rooms for Saturday Night. One for elder Mike Mukarati whose wife Primrose died last month, and one for deacon Mombasa Chinchaya and his ...

      ... Village weavers and Brown-hooded kingfisher. While we were walking about the area, one of the game keepers, Lloyd, invited Derek and I over to see the cotton-eared marmosets. Then he asked if we wanted to "hold" them. Sure! We didn't really hold them. Instead, we were invited one at a time to enter their pen so they could sit on us and climb all over us. It was a fabulous experience. The photos will probably show that we were a little nervous. But when these little creatures spring ...

      ... a developed nation like the USA has. For example, electricity blackouts can occur a couple times each week. The internet is not always so easily available (which is why my travel blog entries may be posted sporadically while we're in Zimbabwe). Roads are not well maintained. And as I mentioned, safety is not top notch. I don't think the police are particularly helpful and furthermore, you invite trouble for even taking a photo of an officer. That is why local ...

      When I was 20, my boyfriend at the time decided it would be a good idea to teach me how to ski. Anyone who's been in this situation will have cringed at that sentence, knowing as I do now that it's up there with shopping at IKEA, as far as relationship testing goes. After about 10 minutes, he became so frustrated that he left me at the top of the mountain and I had to be escorted down by some helpful German tourists. I'm not telling this anecdote to show that ...
