A very warm welcome, warm being the operative word, from the Backpackers Bazaar Team. Its hot, humid and wet as the rainy season is now upon us! Our spring has seen the trees and grass getting greener, the lovely flamboyant’s blooming and the frangipanis flowering! A really pretty time of year for Vic Falls and surrounding areas!
The Festive silly season is approaching and things are very booked up all over town accommodation and activity wise, so just to remind everyone to try send through pre-bookings to avoid disappointment!
On this day in 1871 journalist-explorer Henry M. Stanley found Scottish missionary David Livingstone, who had not been heard from for years, near Lake Tanganyika in central Africa.

Shearwater Adventures is happy to report that the rhinos on the reserve are doing very well and sighting of the calves and their mothers are now more frequent. All rhinos appear more relaxed and Shungu, the daddy rhino, is still a little protective of his daughters but fortunately his bark is worse than his bite.
The two rhino calves are now almost four months old and although healthy there is unfortunately another threat to them, wild lions. The reserve has five wild lions, an adult male and lioness with three half grown cubs who are stalking the rhino babies. Since the rhinos are state property we have been given permission to capture and relocate these wild lions to the Matetsi wildlife area. We are currently in the process of baiting them to facilitate the immobilizing of lions. Unfortunately the lions are currently residing in an area that includes our lion walk activity. So with immediate effect we will be temporarily suspending our lion walk activity until further notice. We are sure you will understand not only the potential risks to our precious baby rhinos, but also to your clients on the Walk.
All existing and new bookings will be channelled through to another supplier. We will update you accordingly as soon as the operation is over.
Please support us during this “Operation protect the rhino babies”

Today’s birthday celebrity in the famous Scottish explorer David Livingstone (1813 – 1873)
He spent years wandering around Africa searching for the source of the Nile which sadly he didn’t find. He did however find the “Victoria Falls”, and was found by Stanley who greeted him with the immortal words, “Doctor Livingstone, I presume.” Well spotted, Stanley! I don’t think he got out a lot!

A surreal and magical night experience awaits visitors who
plan their Victoria Falls trips to coincide with the full moon. For three nights
each month (one on either side of the actual full moon date), the Rainforest is
open for a dramatic lunar rainbow – a rare natural phenomenon (also known as a
moonbow or lunar bow or white rainbow) produced by the moon rather than the sun
(a solar rainbow).

Shearwater started operating lion walks at Victoria Falls in September 2005. The well being of the lions in our care is a primary concern of the Shearwater team.
In recent times there has been considerable discussion and debate regarding the use of lions in the tourism industry and in particular relating to the canned hunting industry. In view of this Shearwater would like to make their position clear to our valued agents and clients.

A word of warning to those visiting Victoria Falls by car or motor home.
The Vic Falls Police has been issued with a speedometer and uses it with enthusiasm almost daily. In the four days we stayed at the Falls not only were we stopped ourselves (doing 74kph on the Hwange Road, just outside town, where apparently there is a 60kph speed limit), and fined Zim$200, we were told the same story by several other people including a taxi driver.
Vic Falls must be one of the few African towns where taxi drivers respect the 40kph city center speed limit and make you wear your seatbelt!

Victoria Falls News Updates 22 Feb 2009
The cholera situation in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, remains unchanged, with no cases reported to date.
The WHO Zimbabwe daily cholera update of 27 January 2009 indicates that while cases have been reported in Lupane and Binga, the Victoria Falls district remains clear so far. This status has given the Victoria Falls community the opportunity to heighten the district’s awareness and readiness to prevent and treat the disease should it occur.
In mid-January a team led by Dr Mutasa of the Victoria Falls Hospital undertook a round trip within the district, visiting 14 points and satellite health centers, with the aim of assessing the knowledge of clinic staff and building awareness capacity.Dr Mutasa described the trip as very productive and adds, “We generally noted a fair level of knowledge by all the clinics on cholera. By the end of our visit they were able to describe what cholera is, how it presents, how to prevent it and treat it”.At each of these stops, the team left educational materials for display and distribution, as well as intravenous fluids should they encounter a case.
Meanwhile, various Gotovictoriafalls Champions are weighing in to support the cause. The Africa Albida Tourism (AAT)Group, which runs the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, Lokuthula Lodges and The Boma continues to contribute towards the purchase of water purification chemicals, and is providing accommodation for the medical officer leading the cholera efforts.
Other champions who have chipped in include tour operator A&K, Mapopoma Cruises and Wilderness Safaris.

World-renowned wildlife artist Larry Norton has teamed up with the Hwange Conservation Society to raise money for Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The park is desperately struggling as a result of the political and economic chaos in the country.
Between now and March 2009 Larry is offering prints and inviting bids on some original oil paintings. Ten percent of the proceeds from this appeal will go directly to the Society.
Please click this link for more details and to view a brochure of all the wildlife paintings and drawing available.
