    Out in the wilds

    by promack Written Oct 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chiredzi is located on the border of the Gona Re Zhou(Place of elephants) National Park. This is about as wild as it gets in Africa - Ammenities are simple ("long drop" loo's), and if you're lucky, a small thatched shelter without walls.
    I've spent many a time here, often without seeing another person, but plenty of wildlife to keep you busy, and it must be stressed, that it is just that WILD! Don't heed this advice and you may well be eaten/ trampled on.
    It is very hot, average summer temps of 35 deg C and dry.

    Malaria Alert!

    Chiredzi is situated in the "Lowveld" and as such has a huge malaria problem, I had it a few times when I lived there and it's not pleasant - alyhough it is a good way to lose weight lol.
    If your driving in the area, please watch out for stray animals/ children, neither of which have any road sense.
    It is a Hot hot place, so cover up or coat yourself in sun cream if you don't want to get frazzled.
