We are traveling to Zimbabwe (couple of 50's and 2 teenagers...17 and 15) to do some volunteer work for a couple of weeks in Aug 2011. Afterwards, we would like to go on safari for about a week. Originally, we were told to go to Botswana but yesterday, someone suggested staying in Zimbabwe. Would anyone care to comment on the benefits of traveling in either country. We have looked at both the tour companies mentioned above. &Beyond does not operate in Zimbabwe however. Any suggestions on which company would be better and for what reasons?
