Be Warned

Not all web sites are what they seem, and you may find yourself on a web site being run unscrupulously, and exploiting the natural nostalgia we have for our lost Rhodesia.  There are a lot of these "Rhodesian" commercial web sites, and a few are not sound.  Some lend themselves an aura of respectability by linking their web sites together.

The Flame Lily Foundation and the Rhodesians World Wide magazine, both long standing Rhodesian institutions, have recently been the target of unpleasantness.

We have taken the decision to not provide links to web sites about which we have concerns, or that have aims that conflict with ours, or that object to us.

Please Note

When you go through any of the links below that website will open in a new window in your browser.  When you have finished looking close it and you will return to this page.
