Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving 2017 was celebrated in traditional style in the USA. For millions in southern Africa it marks a #freshstart too!

  • In Zimbabwe…..the week-long run up to Thanksgiving 2017 started with the “coolest coup” that wasn’t a coup d’etat!
  • Things continued with a resignation that wasn’t to be…..
  • Then in the midst of impeachment proceedings Robert Mugabe resigned. Zimbabwe erupted with jubilation.
  • A new presidential inauguration followed days later.

It doesn’t matter that we can’t peer into the future. We made it through a “coup that wasn’t” and Mugabe is gone.

Zimbabwe is the happiest country in the world as a result!

Giving thanks in the best tradition…

We’ve always offered best wishes to our north American friends as they celebrate Thanksgiving in November (USA) or October (Canada). Usually marked with an offer of fresh bread from a Luangwa bush kitchen plus a few important snippets as we end the traditional safari season.

Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving time is a celebration of change…

Celebrations start from home turf in Victoria Falls and Kariba

Here’s an invitation to come and celebrate with us…from Vic Falls…in 2018

Early this year, a well-known, well-travelled British journalist compiled and published 50 of Africa’s “best safaris”.

We improved and trimmed that down to 25 of the very best African safaris. Ten of them do or can incorporate Victoria Falls.

  • So if you join us on one of these typical trips into Zimbabwe here’s a 10% discount on the list price - just quote TG10. Valid through 2018 on new bookings made before 1 January 2018.
  • Better still, we have a 6 night safari combination in Zimbabwe, valid now until April 2018, also November 2018. It’s 25% off list price - just quote TG25. Bookings to be made before 1 January 2018.

Top tips for getting on safari in 2018 and 2019

  • Break away from the herds! Go beyond the obvious, get your timing right, spend your time and money in the right spots.
  • If East Africa is in your sights. Tanzania is getting pricey, Kenya is utterly under-rated so give it extra thought, Uganda is topping our list.
  • Emerging destinations….Gabon is difficult, CAR should be on your list, the secret is out about Congo. Speak to us….

…oops! We’re still celebrating…Thanksgiving 2017 was epic
