Zimbabwe , or Zimbabwe in the Portuguese version, is a country little sought after or visited by travelers passing through southern Africa

You really shouldn't travel to Zimbabwe. You won't have fun!

That's what we were told just two weeks before we planned to travel to Zimbabwe, and not just by one person, but by several people. It put a seed of doubt in our heads, and when we looked at the government's safety warnings for Zimbabwe online, things didn't look much better.

Zimbabwe in recent years has become increasingly politically unstable. We were warned of fuel shortages that would leave us stranded in cities and of being fleeced by the police for every dollar we had.

We discovered that what you hear from others and what you experience are two completely different things. We were five months into our African overland trip and felt undaunted, so despite the advice, we continued with our Zimbabwe travel plans.

The day we crossed the famous bridge over Victoria Falls into Zimbabwe, we were greeted by friendly border agents. The process was easy by African standards, and the border police waved us through with a smile. It didn't take long for us to start enjoying Zimbabwe.

After all, seeing Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side is the only way it sits well in our books, and having tea at the Victoria Falls Hotel made us feel like we were in the middle of a movie set with Queen Elizabeth as the star. main.

We stayed at the surreal old drift lodge , close to the iconic Victoria Falls, on the banks of the Zambezi River, there is the Old Drift Lodge. The lodge offers luxury accommodation overlooking the pristine Zambezi National Park, just 7 km from Zimbabwe's mighty Victoria Falls. Old Drift Lodge is situated within a wild paradise frequented by elephant, buffalo, herds of sable, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala.

The main area of the accommodation has a 360 degree view, facing north towards the Zambezi and south facing a water hole. A 7-kilometer stretch of river flows between the campground and the town of Victoria Falls, making Old Drift Lodge the closest lodge within Victoria Falls National Park.
