Zimbabwe, you are what I imagined when I started planning this African Adventure. Countless wild animals gathering around the waterhole at sunset; baby elephants splashing water & mud while older elephants keep them from going in the deep end, baby baboons riding on their mothers backs, wildebeests, springbok, and kudu frolicking about, all in a FENCELESS national park where the animals are free to roam the entire country as they were intended to. The locals respect these animals and don't try to get too close or fence them for a tourist attraction. Safaris where you spend hours looking into binoculars through the brush & trees, hoping to catch these gorgeous creatures in their natural environment. This was truly a spectacular site. Hwange National Park, you are doing right by these animals and I could not love this more, thank you for an unforgettable adventure! #travelnurse#bucketlist#Zimbabwe#SundaySafari#MasteringPhotosThroughBinoculars
