- Be sure to print out maps if you are going to self-drive or you’re going on hiking trips. In some of Zimbabwe’s remote areas, GPS may not be reliable. A number of lodges send directions which you can print out and follow.

- Come up with a budget and make sure you have wiggle room for additional activities and unforeseen expenses. Here is one vacation budget template we recommend.

- Leave work at home and unplug. Zimbabwe has so much natural beauty, enjoy all the sights and sounds without any disturbances. Wake up to birds calling rather than your daily alarm on your cellphone or tablet. If you wake up early just sit back and watch the beautiful sunrise. Toss that daily routine of listening to morning affirmations and take a walk instead. Nature abounds with inspiration and good energy.
