Visiting Chimanimani in Zimbabwe in 2017, I met our amazing hiking guide Colin. If you've ever been to Zimbabwe you know they are struggling terribly and I decided that if I could help out Colin I would.
So once I got back to Australia I started gathering everything I could to build his new website.
You will notice that the website is reasonably pared down and has no large images or video. This is primarily as its really hard to get reliable internet in Zimbabwe and most users will be using their phone. Even travellers will probably not start looking for hiking or bird watching in Chimanimani until they are in the continent so it was very important that the website rendered well on mobile devices.
The colours are based around Colins Rasta personality and of course the green ties in well with Africa.
If you are ever going to Zimbabwe, consider Chimanimani and hike up the second highest mountain in Zimbabwe, which actually straddles the border of Mozambique so unwittingly, you visit Mozambique during your climb.
Chimanimani Tour Guide Website
I have a very bad thing to admit! Very bad from a website developers perspective!
When I went away, I really dumbed down my website so that I wasn't fielding requests while I was travelling. I KNOW! It was horrific, however I just could never be sure of where and when I would have internet and I made the decision that not getting inquiries was probably better than not answering them.
I know in the overall scheme of things I will be paying for that now, however the upside was that when I came back from travelling I got to build a whole new website and design it around who I am now, not who I was before I left.
My new logo embraces my love of the sparkle. My husband started calling me The Geek Queen years ago so I've always had the crown as part of my logo, however I really decided to fully embrace it just recently. Everything around at the moment has sparkle so I decided that Gold Geek Queen was me!
The other colours are directed at my primarily female client base. I do have a few male clients and I do not discriminate however its women that I work for primarily so that's who I've aimed my website at.
Let me know what you think. I'd love to know.
