As I am about to begin my journey back to my native Zimbabwe, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite properties that we will be experiencing with the GIFTE journey November 12-25th. Located in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Old Drift Lodge is a home away from home.  The staff are so friendly and inviting, the rooms are just stunning with each suite overlooking the Zambezi River and sometimes if you’re lucky, you get to have an elephant come and visit and drink from your pool.  The Zambezi National Park is relatively unheard of, however you get to experience a safari like no other – fewer people in the park and the opportunity to do some walking.

I will be sharing lots of our adventure while we are in Africa so be sure to watch for those updates via social media. Contact us at 1-800-940-9344 if you’re ready to start planning your African Safari Vacation. Or email us at

Our own Dana Crone visited Old Drift earlier this year.  Below are some of her experiences.

Being nestled along the Zambezi River and in the Zambezi National Park are amazing attributes to this already luxurious property.  The main camp is spacious and relaxing with everything you could want.  The food and staff were incredible.  My suite was large, perfectly arranged and decorated, complete with an ice maker. 

The private outdoor shower, bathtub and plunge pool overlooking the Zambezi River were a nice surprise. 

Some guests were even lucky enough to have elephants visit them at the their plunge pool.

I saw my first of many giraffes and other animals during my stay.  My sunrise cruise, with Amarula in my coffee, on the Zambezi River was definitely a highlight!
