Zimbabwe Getting Back On The Map

The political unrest that dictated Zimbabwe of late doesn’t seem to be affecting the number of people heading there; more than doubling the amount from last year (I should note Wanderlust mentioned this stat was unconfirmed).

With the adoption of the U.S. dollar making currency scams less likely, and the rumors of the political scene heading back to a commonwealth, as well as Douglas Rogers’ book that Matt mentioned in the last post,  it seems the tide, and attitudes, might be swinging in the right direction.

With so much to do and experience there — numerous national parks, safaris, and Victoria Falls — let’s hope this political trend and attitudes continue . . . so the tourism trend can, as well.
