Summary: Zimbabwe

2,591 km in 14 days: The people of this country are incredibly open, friendly and reflect their hearts through their eyes. We were very excited about that and got infected. The monstrous Victoria Falls and the accompanying gentle Zambesi gave us a perfect start in the north of the country. In the Hwange National Park, we were again able to experience wild animals, this time we visited a herd of elephants even at night, which we found to be particularly peaceful. Great Zimbabwe as the namesake of the country and most important cultural site inspired us because of the powerful dimensions. Even though the Gonarezhou National Park did not allow us to entry and arrested us for a few hours, we enjoyed the river Runde with the elephants on the edge of the park. In the Chimanimani Mountains, we did an eight-hour nature-wild hike that was as diverse as we’ve never experienced a hike. The Bvumba Mountains and Nyanga Mountains with the Honde Valley rounded off the impression of a very diverse country: coniferous forests, tea plantations, banana trees, wild waterfalls and colonial architecture – nature can not be more different. The scrapped currency and the tedious diesel procurement have not disillusioned us, on the contrary, we have come to us and then, with some patience, mastered without problems.
