Zimbabwe Safari and Victoria Falls Vacation

Inspirational safari holiday to Zimbabwe

Commencing in the Victoria Falls and combining safaris in Mana Pools and Hwange, this itinerary is a great example of how the diverse elements of Zimbabwe can combine to create the perfect trip. Commanding a prime position overlooking Victoria Falls, the Victoria Falls Hotel is an Edwardian-era hotel with magnificent vistas which seem custom-built for a spot of high tea or a relaxed gin and tonic.

After seeing the Falls and joining the activities in the area, fly to Hwange National Park for your first safari. You will stay at the intimate Deteema Springs Camp where the wildlife visits you. The seeps of Deteema Springs offer a permanent water source which attracts elephants and plains game during the day and lion and leopard at night. Conclude your memorable vacation at a private concession of the Mana Pools National Park. The eco-luxury tents of Inge Pan Camp deliver magnificent views of wildlife from your bed. From bird watching to taking an untamed walking safari under the care of a highly trained guide, there is always something to see and do.
