OK. Here we are again. After sorting a few hiccups,here we are on our way to Zimbabwe.
We have done an few mods to the trailer, by moving weight to the back as it was to nose heavy. To the Fortuner, we added a roof rack, a new tow bar and a winch.
Anita seems a lot happier after having seen the family. Layla is looking great and the cutest thing around. Carla sorted her passport and things while staying with us and Tomas got my car and a job.
So, the plan for now is to enter Zimbabwe and visit the Gonarezhou Park, The Zimbabwe Ruins,The Matopos Hills, Hwange Park, Victoria Falls, Kariba and Mana Pools before crossing to Zambia.
We drove the Thabazimbi- Ellis Ras route. with the intention to stay over at Mazhou Camping site in the Mapumgubwe Game Park. Well, to our surprise, at the entry to the park we found a huge notice board with SANPARKS saying "No unauthorized entry". We proceeded further and found further signs warning you of prosecution and so on. We eventually decided to turn around and saw a couple of private airplanes parked there. So the conclusion was"this must be very expensive, so lets get out of here. We went on to Musina, so we could be ready to cross the border post the following day.
In Musina there are no campsites, so we slept at a Lodge.
