Grand Zimbabwe, Guided Group Tours

Is there international news & TV available? And are your guides/clients kept up-to-date with any important news affecting Zimbabwe while on safari?
Yes, there is international news available and we also have operational offices in Zimbabwe which we use to relay any important information onto our guide. We also (from Cape Town) keep in contact with the happenings in Zimbabwe with lodges and camps continuously as well as with our sources and press-releases to make sure that any important information is passed onto our safari guide as well as the clients immediately if need be.

Because of poverty, what is the state of hygiene there?
In general Zimbabwe is a hygienic area. Obviously, in the more crowded parts (shanty towns) and cities like Harare there are some areas that have poor hygiene. Our safaris only go to/visit places that have suitable hygiene levels for our clients. We go to places that have running water, are clean and are well looked after.

Is there decent public transport?
No, there unfortunately isn’t decent public transport, the transport is very sporadic and can’t be relied on. The government is working on rebuilding the transport systems in Zimbabwe, but in general we only recommend transport do be done on an organised tour/safari or self-drive.
