Zambia-Zimbabwe Escape

Bringing up the rear of Africa’s alphabet of destinations, Zambia and Zimbabwe remain blissfully remote and sparsely populated, with constant traffic coming on four legs instead of two. Nine days enveloped in tented luxury turn the primitive notion of “safari” on its head, with plush accommodations and personalized service only enhancing the intimate nature of the escape.

The safari begins in the Kafue National Park, where a helicopter will ferry you over the grasslands to the tented comfort of Shumba Bush Camp. Seek out the wildlife day or night and observe the scene from the raised deck at camp, complete with a relaxing swimming pool and an endless view. Zambia is credited as the birthplace of the walking safari, and there is no better way to get up close to nature than with the guides of Shumba.

Next, spend a full day on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls with the Zambezi River ever in view. Toka Leya’s riverside confines are a refuge to hippos, elephants, and vervet monkeys, all visible from the private decks of each en suite tent. Enjoy an unforgettable tour of “the smoke that thunders” before continuing into Zimbabwe.

Conclude your journey over the border at Little Makalolo Camp in the verdant Hwange National Park. Find elephant and cape buffalo herds 30,000 strong and 400 different bird species, with day and night game drives offering ample opportunity for nature-lovers to observe and interact with the Hwange habitat.
