My Zimbabwe Diary: Prologue

The Zimbabwe Diary series was written and initially published on LinkedIn in 2016 following my participation at the Sanganai/Hlanganani Wourld Tourism Expo 2016 on the invitation of the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority ZTA.

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 hell that you’re neither safe nor welcomed.

Rainbow at majestic Victoria Falls called Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders) by the locals…
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.

An alluring blue lake inside Chinhoyi Caves…
Lush tea plantation and beautiful landscape on the way to Honde Valley…
Iconic ruins of the Great Zimbabwe Wall in Masvingo…
Soothing sunset on the Mighty Zambezi River…

I shall take you through my Zimbabwean Odyssey and show you some of the breathtaking scenery and compelling attractions dotting the country’s landscape, the people, the culture, food and music.

Indeed, Zimbabwe is more than just Victoria Falls – it is a World of Wonders! Stay tuned…
