Sailing Zimbabwe!

My wife and I just spent a week sailing a 30ft Wharram Tiki on Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe.

It was a fantastic experience - and thought we'd share - maybe something a bit different for your next sailing holiday - sailing during the days, guided walks through the African bush in the mornings/night!

Check out our story here: Why knot?: Back Under Sail - Zimbabwe

Highly recommend the group we went with, and we fell in love with Zimbabwe and its people - despite going in with a lot of trepidation about Mugabe/corruption/etc!

Re: Sailing Zimbabwe!

Mugabe and his boys don't mind the tourist dollars; makes up for all the farms they destroyed. Visitors and their wallets are kept safe....
Ps 139:9-10 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
