This safari seamlessly blends three of southern Africa’s most fruitful game areas; Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, with the vast Kafue National Park in the west of Zambia.

Day 1, 2 and 3: Hwange National Park
Upon arrival at Victoria Falls, connect by scheduled charter flight to Hwange for 3 nights accommodation at Little Makalolo on a fully inclusive basis. Located on the border with Botswana, Hwange was proclaimed some 75 years ago and has served as a haven for one
of the densest concentrations of game in Africa. Hwange further has some of the highest mammal diversity in the world, with over 100 recorded species. This is greatly due to the varied habitats and vegetation types.

Day 4, 5 and 6: Mana Pools
Light aircraft transfer from Hwange to the Lower Zambezi for 3 nights accommodation at Ruckomechi Camp on a fully inclusive basis.
This camp is idyllically located, overlooking the Zambezi River in Mana Pools National Park and the imposing Great African Rift Valley. Comprising 14,600 km2 (5,600 sq. miles) this park is located in the heart of the Zambezi Valley and is famed for the rich and varied mammal life.

Day 7, 8 and 9: Kafue National Park
Depart Ruckomechi on a boat transfer to Chirundu, followed by a road transfer to Lusaka and onward scheduled flight to the Kafue National Park for 3 nights accommodation at Shumba Camp on a fully inclusive basis. At 22,500km2 (8 600 sq. miles), Kafue National Park is one of the largest protected expanses in Africa. The Busanga Plains is one of Zambia’s most important wetland and grassland resources and is untouched by development and human activity – the jewel in the Kafue crown. The landscape here is in complete contrast to that of Mana Pools, thereby providing a complementary experience.

Day 10: Livingston
Depart Kafue on your flight to Livingstone Airport. On arrival, transfer by road to The River Club or Toka Leya Camp for overnight accommodation on a fully inclusive basis.

Day 11
Departure back home.
