My husband and I have booked an amazing trip to Zimbabwe as our first African safari in September 2012. We used the services of a travel agent who posts here often & have ben thrilled with their service & suggestions so far.
Our travels will take us from the US, through Johannesburg (overnight) to Victoria Falls (overnight) and then 3 nights each in Little Makalolo @ Hwange, Musango Safari Camp @ Lake Kariba and Ruckomechi @ Mana Pools.
My only concern after reading / research is that we fly out of Harare airport to Johannesburg after leaving Ruckomechi. Is crime or being held up at the border a concern in the Harare airport? I'm wondering if it would be a good idea to see if changing to fly out of Victoria Falls is possible. (Acknowledging that there may be a cost involved.) We are very excited about this trip!
Thank you in advance for any input / information you can provide.
