If you needed any more reason to visit the magnificent Gonarezhou NP in Zimbabwe, the folks at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge have some wonderful events planned for 2017. 13-17 July - Wine and Wild Dog Weekend. Wine tasting with award winning wine maker Jeremy Bourg from Painted Wolf Wines combined with wild dog conservation presentations by Rosemary Groom from the African Wildlife Conservation Fund. 23 & 24 September - Mahenye Festival. Once a year the local community come together to dance, sing anf entertain with traditional stories. A truly authentic festival run by the community for the community. Guests of Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge are privileged to be invited to attend. If you are interested in making your safari coincide with either of these events just send me a message.
Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of joining Talking Stick Marketing for an evening entitled 'Let's Talk About Africa'. Events like these are not uncommon but in amongst the presentations about hotels, lodges, spas and plunge pools there was one little gem that stood out for me. Steve Butterworth from Chile Gorge Lodge showed a short video titled 'Community Led Conservation'. It was a short and simple piece with commentary by Clive Stockil. For those of you not familiar with Clive he is the chairman of the Lowveld Rhino Trust and in 2013 was awarded the Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa. Click here to watch the video. Sorry I could not manage to link directly to the video, but you'll find it after the first paragraph of text.
