Begin this 10-day Zimbabwean safari in Victoria Falls before your transfer to Somalisa Camp in Hwange National Park. This flagship reserve is renowned for its large elephant herds and from this tented camp overlooking a pan you are well positioned to watch big game as they come to the water to drink.
Your next destination is the World Heritage Site of Mana Pools National Park where you are accommodated at Zambezi Life Styles Camp, which is idyllically set along the lush banks of the Zambezi River. The waters surrounding this camp offer excellent canoeing while exploring the floodplains on foot is an equally rewarding experience.
You are then transferred to Kanga Camp, which is situated in one of the most remote areas of Mana Pools overlooking the Kanga Pan – the area’s only permanent water source – which attracts big game such as lion and buffalo. The camp’s resident lion prides are legendary and encounters with wild dog occur regularly. Kanga has permission to conduct night drives on their concession, which is not possible at any other camp in Mana Pools.
Heading back to where you began your adventure in Victoria Falls, Ilala Lodge is an intimate boutique hotel situated on the Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi River within walking distance of the Falls. Enjoy adrenalin activities such as white-water rafting and micro lighting or take in your surroundings at a gentle pace on a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River.
