Best of Zimbabwe Safari

Guests on a Zimbabwean game drive safari capture the moment as they observe passing elephants.

First, you're off to Victoria Falls, then on a safari extraordinaire as you head on to Hwange National Park, Matusadona National Park at Lake Kariba and Mana Pools National Park. A big game safari guaranteed across three different territories each offering an incredible safari experience, so vastly different from one another, yet equally as exceptional in terms of sightings and adventure.

Day-to-day Itinerary

Day 1 & 2: Victoria Falls (Zim)
( 2 nights )

Welcome to Zimbabwe. Welcome to Victoria Falls. You have two nights here to explore the falls and enjoy activities. Your holiday has just begun. Transfer to your lodge on arrival.

When you're there: Go see the falls of course, either on your own or with a guide. Explore the rain forest and the many viewpoints. The Zimbabwean side certainly doesn't disappoint. You have one full day here so use it wisely. Our recommendations: a guided tour of the falls, a helicopter flight over the falls and a Zambezi River cruise at sunset.

Extend the Zambezi River Cruise to enjoy dinner on board for one of your evenings and for the other, dine at the lodge restaurant or book an authentic Zimbabwean dinner experience at The Boma Restaurant.

You can ask the lodge reception to assist with booking your activities and making any necessary reservations for you.

Day 3, 4 & 5: Hwange National Park
( 3 nights )

Today you are Hwange National Park bound for the next three nights. Your wildlife safari starts here...

On the way: You will transfer back to Victoria Falls Airport today and take your shared charter flight to the airstrip in Hwange National Park from where you will transfer to your camp. This transfer is roughly two hours, so you're off on a game drive the minute you touch ground.

When you're there: Your camp includes activities and you have two full days to enjoy them. These include game drives and guided walks. Enquire about the The Dove Nest Tree House once in camp for a different overnight experience in the bush.

There are great waterholes to explore and a concealed hide to get up-close. This is a great spot for photographs as animals come to drink. You can often see elephant, rhino and lion in front of camp and that's all before you've even made your way into the park where even more incredible sightings await you.

Day 9, 10 & 11: Mana Pools National Park
( 3 nights )

If you thought the game viewing couldn't get any better. Guess what? It does and you're about to experience it in Mana Pools National Park. Another incredible area for game viewing, large herds of elephant bulls and you may even be lucky enough to catch one on his back legs to feed from some top branches of a tree.

On the way: Boat transfer back to the airstrip and then take to the air again as you make your way to the Mana Main or Mana West Airstrip. On landing it's a 45 minute transfer to camp. Enjoy the different surrounds. A different feel to the bush now from where you've come.

*Another 2 full days are set aside to enjoy the scheduled camp activities included in your stay. More game drives, bush walks are a must and give fishing a go if you feel like it (and if it is fishing season). You're on the southern banks of the Zambezi River. If you're daring, why not sleep out on the star-gazing platform? A billion starred sky above you and a the natural wilderness surrounds you.
