Luxury Zim: Victoria Falls, Hwange & Mana Pools

This wonderful safari begins in the world famous Victoria Falls. You can hear the thunder of the falls from your lodge, located just 8 minutes away.

You then head off on safari, beginning in Hwange National Park, in the extreme west on the border with Botswana.

The park, home to spectacular wildlife and reputed to be Zimbabwe's best game viewing destination, is surrounded by community land and a visit here is also a chance to understand complex human/wildlife co-existence issues.

You then fly to the wilds of Mana Pools on the Zambezi. A jaw-dropping landscape provides the stage for the next 3 nights as you explore on foot, in vehicles and by boat.

This trip gives you an opportunity to see parks/reserves in Zimbabwe with contrasting topography. The icing on the cake is the chance to stay in some truly remarkable properties.

Large prides of lion and buffalo are frequently seen here and you have a good chance of spotting leopard and rhino in addition to cheetah and spotted hyena. The wild and woolly brown hyena also occurs here and is something of a rarity.
