    Traveling While Black

    I went from Vic falls to Bulawayo Zimbabwe. It’s a longgggggg scenic bumpy drive but totally worth it! I spent a three days in Matobo National Park. I tracked rhinos and got heart poundinly close to them. It’s not for the faint of heart. While it’s once in a life time exoetice to get heart pounding close to them I had to remember they are dangerous and will attack if felt threaten. The guide however was a pro and did a good job at keeping me calm. All I ever are was Sadza. Please try Sadza. It’s soooo good. I couldn’t get enough of it. I was able to see 4 of the big 5. The leopard were not feeling social.i then climb deep into the woods to marvel all the old cave drawings of the Bush men. Again not for the faint of heart. Proper shoes, clothing and water highly recommended. The climb is hard but the view at the top is totally worth it! It’s amazing to see all these natural rock formations. I also visited a village and got to sit around and listen to the village chief tell stories through a translator. That experience was hands down my favorite. He is a lively charismatic character with stories you can only marvel at. He wore the skin of a cheetah that was killing his cattel and I got to try it on. I bought most of my souviners from the village people as they are hand made and 100 percent authentic to Matobo. I fell in love with Matobo. I will forever hold it close in my heart.

    Traveling While Black

    Zimbabwe , a beautiful country which has no doubt been through some tough times. Nevertheless, a beautiful country, home to one of the natural wonders of our world – Victoria Falls , The smoke that thunders.
    Thus, the highlight of my trip to Zimbabwe was the visit to Victoria Falls. These falls are really beautiful and in my personal opinion are best viewed from the Zimbabwean side. The tourist desk offers rain coats so that you can protect your valuables as you may get quite wet with the spray from the falls. Comfortable, flat shoes are advised as the cobblestone floors can get quite slippery.
    There are quite a few activities available which may excite adrenaline junkies ; bungee jumping near the falls, gorge swing and fox flying (you are suspended by your back and kinda “fly” across the gorge).

    We also did an evening/sunset cruise on the Zambezi river which offered stunning views, and if you are lucky, a glimpse of animals such as elephant , enjoying the cool water. Some of the cruises offer light refreshments and these would be greatly recommended.
    A safari ride through one of Zimbabwe’s national game/nature reserves is also a good idea. We were fortunate enough to have spotted rhino, lion and elephant on our game drive.

    Traveling While Black

    Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, the City of Kings, and my dad’s country. I have had the pleasure of visiting several times in my life with the best tour guides, my family…… It is am amazing place full of history and beautiful people. Although, you must have cash.. and yes cash only when you travel to Zim in general, its an amazing place to meet Ndebele people…. There are not many things to do right in the city so it does lack tourist/siteseeing options there are a few things you can take in

    1. Matobo Hills – otherwise known at “Matopos” short for Matobo National Park, is rock formations and large hills as far as the eye can see. You can take in amazing landscapes and rock art. Of course seeing all sorts of animals, Rhinos, and Wildebeest which is an amazing site up close. It is approx 40 km from Bulawayo.
    2. Chipangakli Wildlife Orphanage – Memories of this place I hold dear.. my uncle sticking my cousin’s leg in the crocodile pit and pulling it out just at the crocodile snapped his jaw.. seeing my aunt almost lose her mind while my uncle wildly laughed or the lion that followed me as i looked at him from the outside pounced at me cause he was looking for a snack… funny now, crying then….. this amazing animal sanctuary cares for injured animals and are prepared for release back into the wild. They have a range of animals to see.

    3. Mzilikazi Arts and Crafts Centre – right ins Bulawayo, visitors can view and purchase crafts, ranging from pottery, paints and sculptures to African print material and clothing. It is a great place to grab some souvenirs.

    4. Great Zimbabwe Ruins (Khami Ruins) or the ones near Masvingo- gives you a pre-colonial Zimbabwean that showcases stone walls and ancient structures. The photos you can take here will blow your mind.

    5. Bulawayo Railway Museum – showcases the first locomotive to cross the bridge at Victoria Falls. There is wide variety of engines and the car that carried Rhodes (From Rhodesian times)

    Bulawayo is a city you can spend a few day exploring and enjoying the people. Eating isitshwala with your hands or amaputi (maize/corn), while drinking a Bolinger, it is nice to take the quiet warm nights before hitting up Victoria Falls for some real excitement.

    I highly recommend a visit to see a small big city in action.
