Travel in Zimbabwe

by cullymore

Hi Myself and my girlfriend are spending 3 days in Zimbabwe on the 13th of October 2005 ( flying into Harare where we have to make our way to Vic falls ) i need to know if it is safe to travel there at the moment. Is the airport safe? also I know the situation with the economy so will it be very expensive there at the moment? Iv been getting alot of mixed views from different websites but at this stage im considering cancelling my trip is there anyone out there who has been to Zim lately

I just got back the other day. You'll be arriving as the Zimbabwe Travel expo ends, the country craves tourists and the people are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The airport is clean and new and you should not expect to be hassled or troubled by anyone. Travel to Vic Falls by return flight is about US$400 per person. Traveling along the countries roads is fine. With the exchange rate you're in for a wonderfully cheap holiday. Don't take pictures of any government buildings

Travel Tips for Harare

Victoria falls,what a place to...

by the_dutchman

Victoria falls,what a place to go to when in Zimbabwe. But that is not the only place of interest. This country is full of historic places to see. The people themselves. They were friendly and happy go lucky. It didn't seem like we were in africa. The flower market is a sight to see.

Rukweza, village stay

by sachara

During our trip in Zimbabwe we stayed for two days in a village, Rukweza. We could sleep on the ground in a big house in the centre of the village.

It was not easy to find the village. We had to turn off from the highway, 10 KM after Nyazuru. Two times we choosed the wrong track. The unpaved roads became very narrow and we saw a lot of tiny villages with round huts.

After one or two hours we found the five boys and girls of the village, waiting for us at the crossroad. Ten minutes later we arrived in Rukweza.

Rukweza is close to Rusape, south-east of Harare

Harare - Passing Through

by TaberTouch

"Truly flamboyant" least that's one name for this spectacular tree, also known as Flame Tree. It's probably a Delonix regia, native to Madagascar. Get used to non-native vegetation. Apparently the British imported stuff from all over while they were in charge, so just because there's a lot of it, doesn't mean it's local.

We were only here overnight to catch an early flight out, so didn't really get a feel for what the city has to offer.

"Where am I?"

We stayed at the Bronte Hotel - well, actually, its annex, the Queensgate Hotel across the street - and had access to its extensive grounds. The combination of European architecture and tropical plants from around the world are disorienting. What gives a distinct sense of place are the massive stone carvings and the amusing wire sculptures that grace the grounds. Here a wire heron fishes from the side of a courtyard pool.

"What century is this?"

The succession of arcades and courtyards linking the Bronte's buildings feel timeless. Only the discreetly placed fixtures - could that be a security camera above the archway? - suggest that we're not in the 1800's.

I visited Zimbabwe and its capital city Harare in february 2005 as part of a worktrip.
Harare is a modern city, with nice architecture, modern shopping facilities, busy trafic and lots of police.
Since the problems started in 2000, the city and the whole country has gone down the drain very fast.
As a tourist everything seems fine, but underneath there are a lot of problems.More that half of the population of Zimbabwe have not enough food and are hungry.
And still, the locals are very friendly.
Our main goal this time was to visit the Shona artists , mostly situated in the Chitungwiza Township.
Have a look at the pictures.

The 'city of flowering trees' is the name often given to Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe. There is considerable justification for this name, for throughout the year some trees or shrubs will be blooming along the city's broad avenues.
