This highlights of Zimbabwe holiday takes in 4 of the region's best areas, showcasing the country's diverse scenery and incredible wildlife. It begins at the legendary Victoria Falls where you will enjoy the sights, sounds and activities on offer, before moving onto the famous Hwange National Park, an arid park, known as the 'land of the giants', for its big elephant herds. Here you can experience 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 stay at Lake Kariba and its surrounds. Spend your time cruising the lake in a private boat, taking in the gorgeous vistas and try your hand a catching a tiger fish. Go on a scenic lakeside walking safari or go on a game drive in search of the Matusadona lions. Throughout the holiday you will be accommodated in luxury lodges and camps offering expert guides, exceptional cuisine and personalised service.
