    Default An update on Save'Conservancy - Humani and Mokore Ranches

    I am attaching two documents that give information on Humani and Mokore Ranches in the Save' Conservancy. I have stayed at both these destinations and I can only say that it was a wonderful experience. Enjoy the read and I hope you make a plan to visit there one day. The Save' Conservancy is not far from Gonarezhou and a visit there can be planned after visiting Gonarezhou.

    Humani looks great - we are trying to get to Gonas in June next year so we may check it out. Seems more reasonable $ than National Parks too for us international visitors. Speaking of Gorongosa - do either of you know if there is still no self-drive in the park?

    Thanks Mike. Zim is the greatest place on earth. Will definitely go to the Save Conservancy.

    Is December manageable with the heat? We went to Angwa river December 2018 to go and see the African Pita and it was fine. When we slept over at Bubi river on our way there it was VERY warm but we survived.

    Good morning Waldenser, Yes December is hot, but sometimes you have great afternoon showers that cools the evening down. I have always done the July - September period. My next target date is between mid February and mid April - most of the rivers and streams would be still running and it is cooler as well. the bush would also have its greenness. I spent a December in the Zambezi Valley and it was fine but hot. It is what you and your family can put up with.

    We are going OT here, but I had planned on doing a few days in Gorongosa in September as part of an eastern Highlands birdwatching trip. It really annoys me that I canít self drive there, hereís hoping that they change their minds this year and at least offer the option of doing your own drives.

    Thatís if the borders open in time, of course.

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for all the info, it makes a stay rather expensive with the cost of the activities, PITY

    Rob

    I agree, it is sad that Gorongoza has gone this route
    Seems more and more parks in Africa are becoming extremely expensive - if self driving also goes I am not sure that many SA's can or will pay $40 pp for a 3.5hrs guided drive

    I couldn't agree more with you guys. Last year we had our trucks packed in Harare and were heading to Gorongosa and the morning before we left, I went to the website and discovered that there was no self-drives. We immediately changed plans and went to Chobe instead. We were really bummed because we were excited to see that area come back to life. We visit Africa every year from the USA and will never go to Gorongosa without being able to self-drive. :-(
