Tips for Twitchers

Birding season may occasionally be wet. For your comfort, please pack a lightweight waterproof jacket or raincoat and gumboots.  An umbrella is also useful to shield any photographic/video equipment. Other important items include sunscreen, mosquito repellent and a reliable torch. We recommend dark or camouflage clothing. Natural fabrics work best in our tropical climate. A suitable wide brimmed hat is essential.

Zimbabwe Situation Update

The situation in Zimbabwe can only be described as euphoric

Local businesses in and around the region not only continue to operate as usual, but with added optimism that our unique corner of our world may again be known for the majestic beauty of the Falls and the mighty Zambezi, the diverse wildlife and the friendly hospitality of the locals.

Malaria Information

It is essential for all travellers to Zimbabwe, and our region to take a malarial prophylactic, please seek and follow your medical professional's advice before travelling.

Please see below the link to the World Health Organisation's profile page for Malaria.

Money Matters

Cash is currently in short supply in Zimbabwe, so it is essential to bring hard currency with you. We would advise that you bring both larger and smaller denominations. Please also note that under Zimbabwean law it is illegal for departing tourists to take more than US$1000 out of the country.

Medical Insurance

We highly recommend purchasing full medical insurance - including evacuation - for your travels through Zimbabwe and the Southern African region.


  • Our safari areas are extremely remote, not all Zimbabwean telecom providers service these areas. We strongly recommend that our guests use ECONET. A local ECONET 'pay-as-you go' simcard is easily purchased at our international airports.
  • Please note there can be delays in communication. Sometimes the telecom infrastructure may be unreliable.
  • Deirdre, our office administrator, also loves to bird. If she is in the bush it may take her longer than 24 hours to respond to queries.
