Curse you, Safaritalk! Without you I would never even have heard of these funny places down there South of the equator. Would have had no idea that these places would be a total gamechanger for me. That I would never be able to look at Safari the same way again. That walking with a Zim pro guide is the best! thing! ever! That nothing is as wonderful, as satisfying, and as awesome as getting close to wildlife, small and big, peaceful and trusting, or menacing and dangerous, on foot. That Zimbabwe is just wonderful beyond words. And the place where all safari dreams come true.
Life begins gently here:
Only to come to a harsh and brutal end.
Well, little predators need food, too - but sometimes they go a bit over the top:
Others just wanna have fun:
Others have less fun - this cat´s bath was very involuntary indeed.

This was the Safari of gettin´ down and dirty - rewarded withsome more unusual angles:
Birds come in radiating red here:
A dry country:
But every trickle of water means life:
And every drop of water arrives here - in the mighty Zambezi:
And nourish the Mana Pools flood plains:
And yes - finally! My two "wishlist" antelopes:
A new kind of Safari bug has got me now - the ZimManawalkingDoug-bug. How to get this out of my system now?
