It’s a wrap! What a year it has been. We’re grateful for all the memories and friends we made this year, from here we can only get bigger!

Over the past 2 months Zimbabwe has been hit with intermittent fuel shortages which have caused a few hiccups in the transport sector across the country. Motorists have had to sleep in queues in some cases just to get a chance to fill their tanks so that they don’t run out.
When thinking about travelling, most of us look to UNESCO for the World Heritage sites so that we can tick the bucket list.
