Making game drives is the best in small open air landrovers, like we had in Hwange National Park.
In these cars you have a direct connection with the surrounding area and wildlife.
You can feel, smell, hear and nearly touch.
And very good opportunities for photographing too!!!

During the trip in Zimbabwe we had our own bus to travel around.
So in the Whovi Park we could make the gamedrive with this bus.
The bus had some problems with crossing the tracks and got stuck. So we had to give a hand by bringing stones to get the bus out of this situation.

Our last keg of our ZIMBABWE SAFARI. Was
a 3day canoe trip on the MIGHTY ZAMBEZI.
I took point with VICTOR. Our guide for this part. I wa so lucky being alone. The other
clowns in the other canoes where all over the place at times. This could be very boring or
very risky. But you get a good workout!!
Those 3 days were very choppy, and we were
going against the current.
I guess I'll just have more ZIMBABWE BEER!

This tip could easily be under Must See Activities as well. After finishing canoeing in the national park, I got to the town of Kariba. From there I wanted to get to Victoria Falls, which is west, on the other side of Lake Kariba. The ferry was fully booked, but I waited around to try and get a last minute space. The operator said that I could have a ticket, but that I would have to sleep on the deck of the boat. This turned out to be the best part. The ferry takes over 18 hours, leaving late morning and arriving early morning the next day.
The ride was relaxing with nice views along the shoreline of the lake. Then sleeping was great. The regular passengers slept inside on chairs with footstools right next to each other in a big ring. I slept outside on the deck. I was give a matress about 10 cm thick. I spread out my sleeping back and slept out under the stars. The motion of the boat prevented attack by mosquitos. It was one of those great unexpected surprises, being 'forced' to sleep out on the deck underneath the stars.

This as you can guess wasn't in front of the LIONS! Same PARK different day!
MATUSADONA PARK, ZIMBABWE. We had a
LAND-ROVER with a bad starter! So, If we couldn't put the truck on some kind of a slope.
Well guess what! We had to push the thing!!
One of the 3 days here. We stopped to look at 5 LIONS. You can get out of your truck in
ZIMBABWE! We had to anyway! We had to PUSH! Hardly 50feet away! LIONS just staring at us like we were CRAZY!
I guess we were!!

It's really a truck. The best 4 x 4!! LAND-ROVER! Thats whats needed for these safaris. But, you also need to make a stop.
Use the truck as a BAR! Enjoy the landscape!
Have a: GIN n TONIC!!

My best part about getting around the BUSH,
ZIMBABWE.ON FOOT!! Exciting not knowing what's around the corner. Or in the grass!!
Maybe even poachers SNARES!!!!!
Must have a LAND-ROVER. Open is a must!!
If you can, take a plane from park to park!!

An open safari truck is probably the best way to make a game drive in the national parks.
Why an open truck? Well, then you can hear the animals, smell everything and I think you even can make better pictures.
Shortly, your closer to the animals and everything else then when your sitting behind glass.

The best thing is to rent a car and drive around....streets are pretty good, boring sometimes cause the distances are quite long. Tempo Limit is 120, and there are radar controls now and than.....
You will see the most of the country by car....Even better, but more expensive is a Motor Home....There are car rentals at the airport...
