At a glance

Experience a comprehensive and comfortable introduction to the wildlife and natural wonders of Zimbabwe with two distinct safaris followed by a finale on both sides of Victoria Falls.

Fly into Johannesburg for a night’s layover and rest before flying across the border to your first lodge or camp in Zimbabwe’s largest national park, Hwange. Here enjoy your first experience of the depth and breadth of wildlife in Zimbabwe to be heard, tracked and observed almost all to yourself. Daily game drives will bring you up close prides of Lion, African wild dog and water buffalo amongst many more. Then it’s onto the very remote, beautiful and UNESCO-awarded Mana Pools game park to experience a safari in the pristine and watery world of the Lower Zambezi Valley. Here the common wildlife sightings on your walking, 4WD or canoe safaris are of elephant, hippo, crocodile, and vibrant birdlife plus other predators that roam unchecked in this unfenced park.

Finally it’s a restful and luxurious two nights on the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls and a further final two nights on the Zambian side before returning home.
