I have the joy of writing you this note from high above the clouds, full of excitement and adventure bound! There is something unique about having a window seat; you can put your concerns aside and watch the clouds pass by. I am always in awe of this experience; the clouds we pass through in one sky, one journey, and across innumerable cloud shapes always carry a remarkable sensation with them. The ever-changing sky, the clouds shaped in perfect ways that I cannot describe, are a continuous reflection of the beauty that surrounds us. It is also, I believe, a lesson to slow down and enjoy the small things that bring magic to our world. I’m reminded that we are only a small fragment of this big and bustling world. A world with so much natural beauty, a beauty that this issue reminds us to appreciate. I trust 2023 has started well for you; it’s hard to think we’re already in March; where has the time gone?
I know it’s been content planning and rushing to make magazine production deadlines for us. Deadlines- a tale that many individuals can relate to, a neverending marathon if you ask me! I have no option but to sit here and stare at the sky for the next hour; jumping out of an aircraft is not on my bucket list! The Nzira magazine is our reminder to you, to slow down and enjoy the natural world that surrounds us; you journey with us through our pages, exploring the various lodging choices, conservation work being done, and real travel stories.Join us as we experience the serenity of the wilderness from a massage table at the Victoria Falls Safari Spa. Kerri O’Fee, a renowned yoga instructor, talks about her Zimbabwe homecoming and settling into Victoria Falls. Wildlife Initiative’s trust in their conservation and antipoaching endeavors introduces us to their new team members- the K9 unit. The African Sun hotels are undergoing extensive renovations, and we feature two of their stunning finished properties in this issue. We’ve simplified gifting; check out our new “From Zimbabwe with Love” section, or pick up a book from our “Recommended Reading” section. Finally, I’d like to thank our readers, contributors, and travel industry partners for your ongoing support. At the recently held Twalumba National Travel and Tourism awards, we were awarded the best coverage of the Travel and Tourism industry in the print media. Twalumba, which means “Thank you” in Tonga, perfectly expresses our appreciation. Thank you very much. Twalumba, Maita, and Siyabonga.
