Spend 10 days in three of Southern Africa’s often-overlooked destinations, yet sensational slices of wilderness that pack a huge punch when it comes to luxury and big game viewing far from the madding crowds. Plus, every booking of this itinerary will include a contribution of two stationery packs that will be donated to the children at Maunga Primary School, as part of our Positive Impact initiative.
Start your vacation in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park at a luxurious lodge on the banks of the gorgeous Zambezi River. The eco-conscious Thorntree River Lodge is located just upstream from the world’s biggest curtain of falling water, Victoria Falls. With an exclusive-use boat, temperature-controlled wine collection and private plunge pools, it’s one of Zambia’s most indulgent and contemporary lodges.
Then escape to an exquisite acacia-forested island along the edge of an ancient floodplain in Zimbabwe’s biggest reserve, Hwange National Park. This immense area is a haven for large numbers of buffalo and elephant. In fact, Hwange’s elephant population is the second largest in the world. Your accommodation - Somalisa Camp - is situated in a private concession which means that you will enjoy walking safaris, night drives and game viewing from secret hides – special safari activities not permitted in the public park.
Cap your safari experience with three nights at the magical Bumi Hills Safari Lodge, nestled in the remote hills that cradle the gorgeous Lake Kariba. Spend your last few days of this trip marvelling at the breath-taking views over the lake and the greater Zambezi River Escarpment. Soak up the sun beside Bumi’s famous infinity-edge swimming pool, and let your soul be stirred by the see-it-to-believe-it sunsets over Lake Kariba.
