AAC Staff Member Jessica in Zimbabwe – Day 10

Our full day in Matabo Hills began with a very informative morning tour with Howard of the cave paintings. Howard is very knowledgeable and interesting. The hike up to the caves is fun and invigorating! In the afternoon we visited the Ethandewni orphanage and nearby school. Sundowners were enjoyed with “The view of the world”.  We were fascinated to learn all about Cecil John Rhodes’ life.

My life-changing safari to Zimbabwe as part of AAC’s exclusive “Eyes on Elephant” is almost over. It is time to bid this magical country farewell. Before I do I raise a toast to our wonderful hosts Sharon and Phil Stead, owners of Amalinda Camp. The Matobo Hills region and Amalinda Camp was the perfect way to end my adventure. I will be posting a full write-up in the coming week.

Now arrived in Hwange and staying at the delightful Linkwasha Camp. Dave Carson is an amazing guide on our Eyes on Elephant Group safari. Sightings of lions at the waterhole, large herds of elephant, sable and buffalo. What a variety of wildlife at Hwange and reminds me a little of a mini Serengeti!

Never been so happy (and slightly scared at the same time)! Watching the elephants crossing on the Zambezi river from the canoe was an extraordinary experience.

Cynthia is a fantastic guide for Victoria Falls! We learned so much from her about history, education system of Zimbabwe, culture, languages, the geography of the Falls! She is a wealth of knowledge! Had a fantastic first day!
