    Can anyone provide updated situation in Zim as a South African travelling there post the Xenophobia attacks in RSA? Safe to travel there?

    Then any thoughts on my post #40 above?

    Thank you.

    On the Friends of Mana Pools Facebook group, I asked for insight into travelling into Zimbabwe post the Xenophobia in RSA. Most comments were that there has been no impact in Zim and all good.

    A few specifics were from people with RSA friends currently travelling in Zim and no issue at all over the past week.

    So we are still thinking of going to Mana as originally planned via Botswana.... But stil keeping an ear to the ground via some local Zim contacts etc.

    Hi all

    We're all back at our respective offices after our trip and certainly had a fantastic trip. Between Dave and I we'll put together a comprehensive trip report with all relevant info for those interested.

    In short, we managed to secure the operator camp at Chitake and were very happy with it once we took a drive to look at Chitake 2! Lots of lion action (a French couple at Chitake 1 spent their two nights holed up in their Hilux!!) and beautiful, untamed bush.

    BBC is an absolutely incredible camp, and the bush around the river at this time of year resembled the garden of eden.

    Thanks again to all for the info provided, the advice and tips proved extremely useful!
