This itinerary starts in Hwange National Park, an arid park, known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds. Somalisa Camp is a small intimate tented camp, is set in the heart of the Park tucked away subtly under a canopy of an acacia tree island on an ancient river system. Somalisa offers guided walks, game drives and night drives, as well as game viewing from hides, all led by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you. After becoming accustomed to the dry landscape at Hwange dotted with watering holes, your next destination, Mana Pools National Park is a total contrast. Bisected by the Mighty Zambezi River this park is lush and the banks of the river provide ideal camping spots. As you idly canoe down river you will be treated to sights such as swimming elephants, a host of aquatic birds and of course plenty of hippos and crocodiles. However, the river is only half of the story in Mana Pools, so your camping adventure is complimented by a stay at Kanga Camp for wildlife viewing from dry land. Particularly good in the dry season, large concentrations of buffalo and elephant are to be found along the river's edges, while predators such as lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah are often sighted. Round off your trip with a visit to legendary Victoria Falls and enjoy the sights, sounds and activities on offer in this historic town.
