We've been at Leopard Rock on Oct'10, it was dark in the night and we arrived without a reservation. We really thought it would be vacant but in fact it was almost fully booked. We had luck to find a room. The hotel is luxurious and keeps the shape of its start after a refurbishing few years early, it was a great experience. At the gate the security guy gave us a salute! This place has a history... fairly isolated in a green Zimbabwe's area, the room were comfortable, the service was perfect although the dinner could have more options in the menu, but it doesn't bothered us. Because the economical embargo our credit cards didn't work there so we had to pay in cash what surprised us because the hotel is a little pricey, but it worth.

Derek and I stayed close to Bulawayze so we could more easily follow his direction in pointing out the small clandestine avian creatures in the thicket. Some of the targeted birds on our list included Red-faced Crimsonwing and Swynnerton's Robin. We continued along the trail, stopping each time Bulawayze heard specific bird calls. It was obvious that ...

The following morning we awoke to the
most amazing view over the mountains, surrounded by massive trees and
beautiful English style gardens, with a stunning colonial country
house. We had to ask ourselves, “are we in Africa?!” We had
planned to stay only 2 nights but fell in love with the tranquility
instantly and stayed a further 2 nights. During our visit we did
horse riding at Eden lodge, a 45 minute walk from ...
... can get away with (being very careful not to overstep the line). It was now just Martha and I, we both are risk takers so this was very exciting. When getting to the kiosk, the officer agreed to let us through. To my surprise this was all too easy, but why? We went back to the car to get my passport. I don’t know how I felt, I suppose quite anxious as I knew how severe these officials could be. It was only when Martha had said she had lied it made me laugh. She explained she ...
... it’s very calm and you feel free walking around. After the bank had swallowed Martha’s credit card our journey was delayed so I took a detour around a few of the side streets.
It feels very different here this time. It doesn’t feel like Africa. At first the general obvious differences shocked me and the foreign atmosphere felt good. Now, it just feels like home. The journey must have been one of the best I have ...
