Chipangali Wildlife Orphanage
Chipangali is a haven for wild animals which have little hope for survival in the wild – creatures which have been orphaned, abandoned, injured, born in captivity or brought up unsuccessfully as pets. It is often the last refuge for those brought in sick or injured, and increasingly it is a sanctuary for confiscated animals.
At Chipangali you can see an unusually wide variety of African animals and birds, including nocturnal species at close quarters. A visit at feeding time is very worthwhile!
The Orphanage has also developed captive breeding and research programme’s which are endorsed by international conservation bodies.
Khami is a mysterious and ancient place 22 Kilometers west of Bulawayo. Recent history identified it as
the capital of the Torwai state, when the Rosvi-Mambo dynasty was at its height in the 15th century.
However the site has been inhabited for 400 years continually, making it one of the oldest in the world.
The second largest stone ruin in Zimbabwe, it spreads over hundreds of hectares, and is a listed Unesco
World Heritage Site the terraces and passages represent the finest examples of back filled stone
structures and display the best examples of stone patterns in the sub-Saharan Africa. Artefacts and relics,
some over 100 000 years old are displayed in the small museum at the site. Our Professional guide will
explain many interesting features and its history, making it a living monument.
Matopos National Park
The Matopos National Park contain some of the most majestic scenery in the world. The landscape has been sculpted out of millions of years of weathering resulting in great "Whaleback" Domes and castle-like formations. It is a place of ancestral spiritual significance, and has served as both a shrine and refuge through the centuries.
These hills have the largest concentration of Raptors (birds of prey) in the world in particular the majestic Black Eagle. The Matopos National Park that we visit encompasses the grave of Cecil John Rhodes and many fine examples of ancient rock paintings left by the San (Bushmen) People.
It is home to the endangered Black and White Rhinoceros, now closely guarded in an intensive conservation program, and the magnificent Sable antelope. Visitors have the opportunity not only to drive through the scenery but also the chance to horse back or walk among the hills with an experienced and knowledgeable guide.
