“This is our latest venture. Beverly and I decided to go into Zimbabwe because of the amazing wildlife, the potential to play a role in making Zimbabwe great, rebuilding the wildlife and the tourism that is so important to conservation. I am very enthusiastic about the sheer wilderness experience and what we have going on in Zimbabwe.”
