Zimbabwe - A Great safari destination
As Zimbabwe begins to come back in to consideration as a safari destination
we at Busanga Safaris decided that the best way to encourage visitors to return was to put together a small selection of safari ideas that take in the key wildlife areas, and to ensure that you get the very best from your safari these trips will be privately guided throughout by Doug Macdonald , our man in Zimbabwe.
We hope that you are inspired by these safari ideas to Zim and look forward to hearing from you.
This is what Doug has to say:
I write this short explanation on the current circumstances in Zimbabwe from the point of view that it is my country of birth which I am proud of , I live here in Harare with my wife and two children. I do hope to welcome you to this country and to guide you all the way to impart my local knowledge and love of the African bush and all that makes it so special to me.Over the past years Zimbabwe has been in the news for all the wrong reasons and as a result of this since 2000 there has been a huge decline in International tourism to this country. However, although we can understand the reasons why people have chosen not to travel to Zimbabwe, those people that have visited the country have been hugely rewarded with National Parks still full of wildlife, quality guides and very few other people to disturb their safari experience.
Recent times have bought a new set of dynamics to this beautiful country and a new found economic stability which has helped immeasurably. Linked to this economic stabilization is the politics of the country which is also changing constantly as we move to what we hope to be a much brighter future. It is obviously not perfect at present but I can tell you that those travellers who do travel to Zimbabwe will be amazed by its beauty, wildlife and fantastic people who will do all they can to make your time here comfortable and memorable.
