I am not a huge fan of large game up close - I am definately the one in the middle of a vlei with a pair of binos checking everything out from a great distance ... but on this occassion I had no idea what I was going and my first glimps of the lions - mmm .. well they are huge. By the end of the afternoon I had held a pangolin - who tried to climb down my top, had my cake taken off my plate by Sweet Pea the baby kudu, watched the lions, stroked a cheetah and given a wide berth to the Baboon in the tree.
In case you think this is sounding like a staged Zoo - its nothing of the kind. Roxy the owner has a complete balance with her animals and its pretty awe inspiring being around her. Her knowledge and understanding of these great animals makes the experience both educational and interactive. Coupled with all the trimmings - high tea in fine bone china cups, sipping champagne around a fire while the giraffe and zebra encroach onto the green lawns.
I totally recommend this for an afternoon activity. Gentle, charming and not very far from the centre of Harare
