Second stop in Zimbabwe –> Gweru. 5th largest city of Zimbabwe, home to Midlands State University (MSU) and Antelope Park. These two were the main highlights of my Gweru experience.
I spent two consecutive days in MSU, conducted interviews with some delegates and met many bright, inspirational Zimbabwean university students.
The second day, for lunch, we had a surprise from the MSU students. A African Barbeque! Braai! Boys were gathered round the braaistand (the grill) and they were cooking the meat, while girls were preparing the salads and serving the sadza.
Sunday morning, before leaving Gweru, we found out about “Zimbabwe’s Best Safari park” which was located in Gweru! http://www.antelopepark.co.zw/
Definitely a must see! So, we went there and had a Walk with the Lions! =) Crazy and unique experience for me! To be honest, yes at first it was scary. 2 huge lions approaching to me, while I am just standing here, waiting them to come near me. However, after learning how lazy they were during the day (20 hours of sleep per day!) and the fact that they were fed the day before (they were being fed in every 4 days with a cow!), I was relieved. No way that they would consider eating me =P
Here is my evidence for the ones who still don’t believe my Lion Walk…
