The time has come to Matopos, an area of great importence to the rhinos. Research and anti poaching are important. Unfortunatly we didn't see any rhinos this time, but we didn't go on any safari either. We did our own little drive into the park but the roads were so bad even for our 4wd so we were happy just to visit a dam. No swiming due to crocs, and the weather has been very hot lately with little rains, so we quickly went back to The Farmhouse Lodge and the Pool! Kids enjoy swiming/splashing, and I enjoyed my morning horserides!
Met a real nice girl, Jess who took me on nice rides each morning. We saw zebras and a big family of giraffes. Our horses liked kicking their front legs in the dam and before Jess knew, her horse had decided to lay down and have a proper swim!Need I say she turned completely wet...so to all my horsefriends; I think this could be a possible horsejourney for riders only!Amazing scenery, safari and outdoor experience at the same time. And for the rest of you guys who might want to try out Zimbabwe for your holiday; the itinerary is soon very close to be reality!
Matopos is a big national park with huge balancing rocks everywhere! It's ever so green and completely different from the rest of the country. It also have very old, cave paintings of different animals and the life long time ago. The way there was through thick bush and Lucas was the one enjoying this the most! He has grown so much this last couple of weeks, Dagis won't recognise him! Photos to come since I forgot my cable. Merry Christmas to all of you!
