This safari combines the beauty of Victoria Falls (from the Zambia side), Hwange and Mana Pools in Zimbabwe and gives you the chance to enjoy many close encounters with wildlife, including several endangered species. In particular you have the opportunity to learn more about African Painted Dogs including a visit to the Painted Dog conservation centre.
Embark on your journey at Thorntree River Lodge, upstream of Victoria Falls in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the Zambia side of the Falls. Here you will encounter white rhino on foot, marvel at the sheer beauty of Victoria Falls, and watch the sun slowly melt into the Zambezi.
Continue to Zimbabwe. Here you stay at Somalisa Expeditions, an authentic camp in the heart of Hwange National Park. Days will be spent on safari and include a trip to the Painted Dog Conservation Centre where visitors learn more about the conservation efforts being made to protect these animals.
From here it is off to Mana Pools – main stage of the Dynasties Painted Wolves documentary. Guests enjoy 4 nights in this magnificent national park with time split between Kanga, an inland oasis, and Zambezi Expeditions, perfectly positioned on the river floodplains.
The twin centre experience allows visitors to cover much of the park’s varied terrain. Activities inland focus primarily on walking safaris, Kanga’s famous 'armchair safari', and game drives. When staying at Zambezi Expeditions, guests will be able to enjoy further guided walks, game drives, as well as canoeing and fishing on the Zambezi River.
