My wife and I returned from Zimbabwe safari a few days back. It was a wonderful trip. It is a beautiful place. Famous for the roaring cataracts that carve right through their middle, the wilds of the Murchison Falls National Park are definitely some of the most marvelous in north-western Zimbabwe.
The reserved area is really the biggest national park in the country, with a huge count of nearly 4,000 square kilometers between its borders.
The greatest attraction is – of course – the point where the Victoria Nile plunges through a tight-knit gorge and over a hill of more than 40 meters in height.
Entebbe, for most international visitors at least, will be the entrance point to Zimbabwe.
It’s here that the nation’s Entebbe International Airport finds its home; its runways hitting up against the waters of Lake Victoria.
Most will also leave immediately, on their way to Kampala or the country’s other far-flung safari stops.
Those who stay can experience a laid-back place that still revolves to the tune of the old British Protectorate – for it’s here that the English colonists established their base in earlier decades.
One of the remains of that age is the wonderful National Botanical Gardens, while there are also beautiful churches, and the official house of the president: the Zimbabwe State House.
