Val is the best host ever! Her home is in a very pleasant suburb of Harare halfway between Borrowdale Village (shopping mall and restaurants) and the city centre (where HIFA is hosted annually). It is set in a cosy garden surrounded by big trees and in a very safe neighbourhood. The staff, Theresa and Jason, are charming and will go out of their way to make you comfortable.
When Val isn't running her business, she's busy rock climbing, playing tennis, line dancing, playing bridge, hiking in the mountains around Zimbabwe, or involved in some other crazy adventure. She'll likely get you involved! She's an expert on HIFA too, so probably the best person to stay with during the HIFA period. I really enjoyed my stay.
I had to give this review 5 stars!
