Classic Zim: Victoria Falls, Hwange & Mana Pools

This exciting safari begins in the world famous Victoria Falls, before moving on to two contrasting safari areas.

First up is Zimbabwe's largest park - Hwange National Park, where impressive numbers of wildlife famously congregate at waterholes or 'pans'.

Then it's off to the remote and beautiful Mana Pools which stretches out along the Zambezi River. You have the chance to see further incredible wildlife here and enjoy a range of activities including walking and canoeing.

Mana Pools, with its spectacular riverside setting is well-known for its elephants, particularly the big bulls who are remarkably relaxed and can be approached on foot, as well as packs of wild dogs, whch are fascinating to observe.

Safari Itinerary

DAY 1-2

Victoria Falls
On arrival at Victoria Falls International Airport you will be met and transferred to your guesthouse. The rest of the day is at leisure. The following day, you'll enjoy a tour of Victoria Falls - a UNESCO World Heritage site and the world’s largest curtain of falling water. Depending on season, and rainfall, the Falls can look very different throughout the year. There are good walking trails, and there are also various boat trips and guided tours/activities for you to enjoy.

DAY 3-5

Linkwasha Concession - Hwange National Park
This morning you'll transfer to your lodge in the Linkwasha Concession, one of the most prolific wildlife areas in Hwange National Park. Activities over the next few days include guided bush walks accompanied by qualified and professional guides, as well as game drives. Hwange National Park is a haven for over 100 mammals and 400 bird species. Elephants are numerous with as many as 40,000 in the park while African wild dog packs, large prides of lion and herds of buffalo can also be seen here. You have a chance of spotting leopard in addition to cheetah and spotted hyena. The wild and woolly brown hyena also occurs here and is something of a rarity. There are no rhino in Hwange other than those re-introduced by the Hwange Community Rhino Conservation initiative to a fenced sanctuary south of the park. It is hoped that one day they may return to the park itself.

DAY 6-8

Mana Pools
This morning, transfer to Mana Pools. You will spend the next few days enjoying guided game drives in open 4x4, safari walks and canoe safaris. The life-giving power of the Zambezi River makes Mana Pools National Park one of Zimbabwe’s most enchanting wildlife areas. Canoe trips are offered year-round and provide a unique and memorable way for visitors to experience the area’s striking scenic beauty and diverse fauna, while guided walks are a great way to explore its pristine riverside forests.


This morning you will be transferred to the airport for your flight home.
