I couldn’t quite understand people’s quiet concern when I mentioned I was travelling to Zimbabwe as part of my world trip.
Well ignorance can be a wonderful thing, and Zimbabwe was on my list of places too see because I knew old BNI colleagues in the capital Harare, and I wanted to see Victoria Falls. I had all but forgotten that just a few years ago Zimbabwe was a country in strife, with white farmers either being herded out, queues for supplies, and tribal confrontation, a daily event. Zimbabwe is still a country in crisis, and had I dwelled on this factor too much and not blissfully gone ahead a booked a horse safari with Varden Safaris (www.vardensafaris.com) I would have missed out on probably one of the greatest adventures of my life.
