Playfully butting his handler, Tatenda, a young black rhino, is frisky and mischievous. It is feeding time, and his nostrils are flaring at the scent of food. He munches on treats from human hands, and nuzzles his keepers like a dog. He loves a rough tickle under his chin. But Tatenda is in grave danger. He is just 22 months old, but may not live to see his second birthday. His horns are growing rapidly – and that means a man known as ‘Ngwenya’, The Crocodile, may soon come to call.

Bulawayo Club re-opensThe reopening of the newly refurbished Bulawayo Club is a milestone event in the revitalization of the Tourism Industry here in Bulawayo, the City of Kings, and in Simbabwe as a whole.  It reflects the continuing confidence of the directors and management of the Bulawayo-based firm, the Amalinda Collection. Witnessing the gradual decline and possible demise of this historical landmark the firm took to heart the national policy of partnerships and have welded together a sound business that combines both private sector zeal and the interests of the members of this august institution. Through this they have saved for future generations one of the key historical clubs in Simbabwe.

Zimbabwe TravelsSo, we crossed the border and stayed at Shoestrings hostel in Victoriafälle, Simbabwe …nice place though pretty empty (we’re in the rainy season remember so not a top tourist time). First things first: Money changing!.There are 2 options: No.1 the official way ~ change 1 US dollar for 30,000 Zim dollars. Or no.2 black-market ~ change 1 US dollar for 2,000,000 (yes, MILLION) Zim dollars! …we opted for no.2 😉 So with money changed, its time for some sightseeing: The view of the Falls from the Zim side is fabulous! You get a ‘frontal’ view of the Falls and can walk along the length of them (though from the other side of the gorge).Incredible sight right the way along. And we got to see a rainbow from Danger Point too…which was nice. Downside is you get absolutely sodden! Again though: a sight not to be missed if you ever get here (the choice is yours as to whether you want to see the falls in full flow or fairly quiet).

It was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. They would come down the hill and into the river in herds of twenty to fifty and just frolic and play.

There was one young calf that kept plopping down in the mud and getting stuck. The older elephants would help him out and he would run right back in and get stuck again. We watched the sun go down and took some amazing photos of elephants against the setting sun.
