ITINERARY

Day 1 – 3: HWANGE NATIONAL PARK (Somalisa Camp)
Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s biggest reserve, home to a variety of wildlife, including giraffe, lion, zebra, a huge elephant population, and a population of wild dogs thought to be among the most sizeable surviving groups on the continent. Terrain ranges from desert dunes and savannah, to rocky outcrops and sparse forests.  You’ll have the choice of game drives, guided walks or horseback safaris.​

From Victoria Falls International Airport you will be transferred by road to Somalisa Camp. Somalisa is set in the heart of Hwange National Park, and is known for its big elephant herds. Nestled in a remote location, on an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain, Somalisa provides guests with breathtaking views of savannah plains. Recently re-built, Somalisa Camp has upgraded its level of accommodation to that of utter comfort and luxury, with absolute focus on customer service.

Consisting of seven elegantly furnished ‘sail tents’ with gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace for the cold winter nights, and an overhead fan for the hot summer days, each tent has en suite bathroom facilities, including flush toilets, an indoor and outdoor shower, and copper slipper-style bathtub. The main decking area includes split level decking with a separate lounge and dining area, as well as a small splash pool for guests overlooking the natural waterhole where herds of game congregate to drink.

Activities include guided walks lead by qualified and knowledgeable guides, game drives and night drives. 

Day 4 – 6: MANA POOLS NATIONAL PARK (Kanga Camp)
The life-giving power of the Zambezi River makes Mana Pools National Park one of Zimbabwe’s most lush areas. This area is the country’s second World Heritage Site and is known as one of the continent’s greatest game-viewing regions. Canoe trips are offered year round and provide a unique and memorable way for visitors to experience the area’s striking scenic beauty and diverse fauna, while guided walks are a great way to take in its pristine riverside forests.

On day four we make our way via light aircraft to remote Kanga Camp. This camp is built around the Kanga Pan, the only permanent water source in the area, making it a hub for wildlife and a delight to explore on foot. Pristine and undeveloped, this area gives you a unspoilt, private African safari experience.

This 12 bedded luxury tented camp comprises of six luxury meru-style tents all furnished simply yet elegantly, with en- suite bathroom facilities, which include flush toilets and running hot and cold water. Two of the tents are honeymoon units with a private deck for dining and relaxing in the afternoons. The honeymoon units can also be converted into a family units on request.

Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe, and is an ideal place to combine game viewing and adrenalin-surging water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.

On day nine you transfer via light aircraft from Mana Pools to Victoria Falls International Airport, and then by road to Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.  The lodge has won numerous awards of high repute, including the 2012 Top 10 Resorts & Safari Camps in Africa as voted by the distinguished international Conde Nast Traveler magazine.
