This 10-day luxury community and wildlife safari takes you into the heart of Africa, where you will spend your days immersing yourself into local African culture, learning about what is being done to empower the people of the continent, and enjoying big game viewing.
Your safari sojourn begins by staying at a luxurious eco-conscious lodge in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, upstream from the world’s biggest curtain of falling water, Victoria Falls. Thorntree River Lodge is one of Zambia’s most contemporary lodges and where you will be introduced to behind-the-scenes community development work that makes travel meaningful.
Then escape to Zimbabwe’s biggest reserve, Hwange National Park, an immense area that is home to large numbers of elephant and buffalo. Somalisa Camp is within a private concession which means you will enjoy walking safaris, night drives and game viewing from secret hides. You will also visit local communities and leave inspired by the creative spirit of the locals and their entrepreneurial endeavours.
The last leg of your community and wildlife tour will take you to Lake Kariba, to the magical Bumi Hills Safari Lodge. The lodge is nestled into the remote hills that cradle the lake and you can spend your last few days soaking up the sun beside Bumi’s celebrated infinity-edge swimming pool or watching the sun set on a boat cruise.
