Zimbabwe Dairies – I

Planning a visit soon and can’t decide on where to vacation? With the summer holidays just around the corner, permit us to serenade you with one of the most beautiful places on God’s planet earth – Zimbabwe. Yes, Zim as it affectionately called in an amazing wonder to many of its visitors due to its non-flattering image in the media the world over; but step into it and you will ask yourself where you’ve been visiting all your life.

This is the first part of a five series documentation of our travel writer’s adventure in this beautiful Southern African country. Enjoy! – Editor

I finally got to visit Zimbabwe, which I have always affectionately referred to among friends as “Mugabe-land.” There has been so much flak from western media for this southern African nation and it just sort of prepares your mind for the hell that you’re neither safe nor welcomed.

Stunning sunset on Kariba Dam, the largest man-made lake in the world…

It turns out, Zimbabwe is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. While I’m going to avoid the politics, it’s important to acknowledge that the demonisation of Uncle Robert by the western press is totally unnecessary. We’ll leave it at that.
