Charlie and the team made our safari in Vic Falls, Hwange and Motobo an unforgettable experience! as a born and raised Zimbabwean he will tell you all the stories and the details of what you see and experience, the history, the wild life, local communities, ancient caves. He is a great chap! :-) going into the safari as a plant eater (vegan) I was not sure what to expect but Charlie and the team made sure we were well taken care of and had good veggies and food options just like the rest.... and some zambeze beers with sprite to refresh our throats at all times. I will be coming back!!

We were 3 couples, 2 British, 2 American and 2 South Africans... Charles Taylor was our host for the whole trip from the Victoria Falls Airport to Matopos ably supported by his Father Piers who joined us from Bulawayo...We wanted a 'real' safari experience topped off by seeing one of the wonders of the World.... We really had a faultless trip in the company of passionate, knowledgeable hosts who went out of their way to ensure a memorable visit to Zimbabwe... the Mobile Safari concept is a winner with all the drudgery handled by the professional assistants doing the cooking, cleaning, and househld chores around the camp, whilst Charlie and his Father kept us informed with their extensive knowlege of the bush and its wildlife....The evenings in front of the log fire in camp and a carfeully laid dinner table produced many laughs and reminiscences of the days events all before taking to the comfortable beds under canvas..... what a trip, highly recommended to all that want to experience Africa in the hands of fantastic hosts..

From the moment we cleared immigration at Victoria Falls Airport (be prepared for a long queue and ensure you ask for a 31 day visa, more of that later) Charlie was there to meet us and quickly got our luggage (there were 6 of us) strapped down on the custom Landcruiser. We were quickly on the road toward our accommodation for three nights, 528 Victoria Falls. This was exemplary and will get a trip report of it’s own. The next couple of days were spent doing Victoria Falls, visiting local markets and restaurants, the vulture feeding frenzy 10 feet in front of you. The highlights were the game drives, the sunset booze cruise on the Zambezi and the helicopter flight over the Falls. For all of these activities, Charlie had organised everything and it has to be said in a faultless manner, whether it be getting us into restaurants or catering our lunchtime picnics normally in the game reserves or alongside the Zambezi. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Charlie. Everything we did was always very relaxed and there was never any hint of being rushed or herded as with many tours.

From Victoria Falls we drove south to the Hawange National Park where we would be camping for three nights. Camping is a word that can strike fear into many people, but this was definitely glamping with a capital G. On arrival at the campsite we met Charlie’s father,
Piers and his other two staff, Makyi & Nelson. The camp was fully set up by the time we arrived and catering was taken care of by Makyi & Nelson. The food throughout was immaculate and the evenings were rounded off around the campfire. Piers was in charge of the drinks and I don’t think any of us had difficulty sleeping thanks to his extremely generous measures of our favourite tipples. The campsite overlooked a fairly large waterhole and one evening we counted over 70 elephants coming in to drink, a sight to behold. The game drives were completely rewarding and we couldn’t believe the amount of game that we saw, and all at very close quarters. There was never a hint of the “potted” tourist safaris where you get twenty vehicles queueing to see a solitary animal. We never saw any other vehicles unless we happened to be passing them in the opposite direction. Game drives were interspersed with visits to Crocodile farms and painted dog sanctuaries. It was very sad to leave the campsite, it had been so much fun.

So next was driving south again to Bulawayo, where Charlie had arranged for us to stay at the Bulawayo Club, a gentlemen’s club reaching back to the days of colonialism where, until recently, ladies were only permitted entrance through the back doors and up the rear staircase. We tried to resurrect this tradition but it fell on stony ground with our partners. More game drives and visits to Cecil Rhodes gravesite for sundowners. One highlight was getting up close and personal with half a dozen White Rhinos in the bush, again faultlessly organised by Charlie.

As promised, more of the visa story mention at the start. On going through emigration at Bulawayo Airport the official then informed us that two of us had overstayed our visa by a day and tried to charge us $100 each to leave the country. This was obviously a little scam between the officials at Victoria Falls and Bulawayo. Hence the reason you should ask for a 31 day visa on arrival, it’s the same price. Whilst I was only going to worry if I heard the key turn in the cell door, thankfully Charlie didn’t just drop us and drive away, he was waiting to see us safely through to departures. As soon as he saw there was a problem he stepped in and got the situation sorted with a supervisor in quick time.

The only negative from the whole trip was having to leave. My partner took almost 6,000 photos and the game we saw was fantastic and truly in your face. I cannot recommend Taylor’s Safari’s highly enough and if you are lucky enough to get the pleasure of Charlie and Piers together you will leave with a lifetime of memories.
