On to Hwange

We left Victoria Falls on the 11th March for the two hour drive to the final destination of our safari, Ivory Safari Lodge at Hwange National Park.

Once we had settled into our room and enjoyed lunch, we set off on our first game drive in Zimbabwe. As sometimes happens on game drives, that afternoon we saw very little game other than some attractive birds.

Our guide did his best to find some lions for us and we did find a couple but they wouldn't show themselves for us. I'm sure you will agree that their camouflage is very effective. There are two lions in the bush, honest!

After the lions, we stopped for a well deserved sundowner, most of us enjoying a gin and tonic whilst watching the sun go down - very Colonial!
