Zimbabwe Water & Wilderness
Apr - Nov
$ 4,515 (Pps)
Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest and oldest game park ranging over an area of 14,600 km². Its sheer size means that it offers a range of vegetation with a resulting diversity of game. This ranges, from the dry southern acacia bush bordering the Kalahari Desert to the mopane woodlands, valleys and granite hills characteristic of the north. Hwange is certainly big game country with massive herds of elephants.
Mana Pools National Park offers a stunning water and wildlife combination. The focal point of any Mana pools safari is the magical Zambezi River: its islands, the surrounding flood plains and the gorgeous forests of mahogany, wild fig, ebony and baobab trees. It is renowned for its large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, and eland. They concentrate along the river when the inland waterholes dry up, especially in the dry winter months.
This safari is a perfect combination of the best highlights Zimbabwe offers!
We have deliberately left out Victoria Falls so that you can choose how long and where you wish to stay. We also recommend adding on our extension to Matobo Hills National Park to the end of the Zimbabwe Water & Wilderness fly-in safari. It is only a 3 hour drive from Hwange to Matobo Hills. Which provides a third scenic contrast after your time on safari. This would alter the end point of your safari. As you would drive to Bulawayo at the end (and fly out from there.)
