Africa Travel Blog (9/18/22): Safari in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Today is a bittersweet day for us as it was the last day that we will be going on safari for this trip. It seems like the travel gods sensed our sadness as they left some of the best wildlife viewing experiences for us on our trip to Zimbabwe’s famed Hwange National Park today. If I haven’t said it enough times, let me tell you again that Zimbabwe is an absolutely stunning country.

In addition to having some of the kindest people that I have met in my travels, the country is one of the prettiest I have visited as well. And while South Africa and Botswana seem to get most of the buzz when it comes to safari tourism, we were absolutely blown away by what we saw in Hwange today. In today’s Africa travel blog post, I share some of my favorite photos and experiences while on safari for you to enjoy.

Africa Travel Blog (9/17/22): On Safari in Chobe National Park, Botswana

On our first full day in the Victoria Falls area, we got up very early to head across the border into Botswana to take a full day safari into the legendary Chobe National Park. I literally could sit down and talk for hours about how absolutely incredible this park is and I still wouldn’t be able to properly describe the incredible experience of visiting this park. The park is renowned for its large herds of elephants, large quantities of predators (including the increasingly rare African Wild Dogs), and the amazing Chobe River that runs thru the park. It was our first experience taking a boat safari, as part of our tour included a boat ride down the Chobe River, and that is an experience I will never forget. In this Africa travel blog post, I share some of my favorite photos from our safari and discuss my favorite parts of the park.

After spending nine incredible days touring some of the most scenic and wild places in South Africa, we boarded a plane and headed North to Zimbabwe to start a whole new segment of our adventure today. We were overcome with awe as caught our first glimpses of Victoria Falls and this incredibly breathtaking part of Zimbabwe. We are beyond excited about what we have planned for the next three days, and I cannot wait to share more of my stories and photographs with you. We have a lot of amazing things planned for our time in Zimbabwe and Botswana, which I outline for you in this installment of my Africa travel blog.
