  1. Re: Hwange - best camping route for 7 nights August 2020

    I'm afraid my website is badly out of date ...we did the Hwange trip last year in October and I've been very slack in not updating my trip reports. I did a report on this forum a while back...
  2. Re: Hwange - best camping route for 7 nights August 2020

    Maybe consider cutting out Guvalala and have an extra day and night in Ngweshla? One full day in the area isn't enough IMO. The drive from Nqweshla to Deteema (via Hwange town and Sinamatella) is...

    Great video with some excellent photos included. The scene of your breakfast at Ngweshla brought back some very happy memories of the picnic site!

    Thanks Gustav. We didn't do the Robins-Deteema road but Deteema to Sinamatella was fine...as long as you don't do what I did and take the Salt Pan loop! ;D

    I can't help with Sinamatella camping...

    Re: Kubu Island and Hwange trip - October 2018

    Facilities at Deteema are a bit run down and certainly not as good as at Ngweshla. It's clean and looked after as best as possible but Zimparks need to spend some money on maintenance. A toilet seat...
