It was the beginning of November back in 2013, I was in Zimbabwe on holiday with my family. I was sitting on the back seat of an old African Safari truck next to my 40-something year old Dad, we were the only Australians there, and we were about to white water raft down the Zambezi River, the river that divides Zimbabwe and Zambia.
I’d like to say Dad talked me into it, but I’d be lying. I’d also like to say that I hated it, but that would be a lie too. But what isn’t a lie, is the roller coaster of emotions I would feel during the next six hours. It was the beginning of November back in 2013, I was in Zimbabwe on holiday with my family.

My Dad and I are what I would call, beginner-level adrenaline junkies, especially when we’re on holiday. We are constantly daring each other to do crazy things. Ride the biggest roller coaster we can find in Disneyland with our eyes closed? Check. Strap ourselves into a sling-shot that flings you 52 meters into the air in Bali? Check. Slide down the tallest water slides in France to land in freezing cold water at the bottom? Yep we did that too. It’s kind of a tradition that we’ve got going, so why would we stop now?Sherstyn Pike
Zimbabwe: An African Getaway
Zimbabwe boasts of unmatched beauty, great hospitality, and amazing scenery views. It is located in the Southern part of Africa, is landlocked and is home to not just amazing people but a gorgeous flora and fauna. The amazing Victoria Falls (also referred to as the smoke that thunders by the locals) is one of the seven wonders the world which lies on Zimbabwe’s banks. A visit to the Victoria Falls is worthy of the words majestic, unrivaled beauty and breathtaking, a trip that should definitely be on everyone’ s bucket list, for both locals and visitors. The country is culturally diversified and has the most peaceful people, a trip to the mountain side or a day watching the sacred hot springs(the locals have a few tales to tell) is definitely something worth experiencing. Zimbabwean weather is amazing, the people are warm and friendly and there are a lot of locations to visit and make amazing memories.Nyaree Munodawafa
