The 12 night Zimbabwe Safari Explorer tour offers four contrasting scenic areas of Zimbabwe.

Start with 1 night in Victoria Falls, with a day at leisure to enjoy some of the many activities on offer. Continue on to a private concession adjacent to the Zambezi River at Old Drift Lodge for 2 nights. Enjoy game-viewing on foot, by canoe or by boat. Then you transfer south by road to Hwange National Park for 3 nights on safari in this prime game-viewing area. You then continue to Lake Kariba for 3 nights before heading to Mana Pools National Park for a water and land safari for the final 3 nights.

The 12 night option (shown here) includes Mana Pools National Park. But this option is only available during May to October. At other times the Mana Pools is too water-logged. So from November to April, we are only able to offer a 9 night itinerary excluding Mana Pools.

Tailor-made options:

It is easy to add extra nights at any of the lodges.  It is also possible to substitute different lodges within the same area if you wish (though this will change the price). For example you can upgrade to our Red Carpet Option to stay at Somaliso Lodge in Hwange, Bumi Hills Safari Lodge on Lake Kariba and the luxurious Nyamatusi Camp at Mana Pools...
