10 days—Zimbabwe Showcase
Safari summaryThis Exploration takes a fresh look at some of Zimbabwe’s most amazing spectacles, with diverse areas, activities and interests. Begin this adventure by exploring the Matobo Hills, Rhodes’ grave and the surrounding National Park – a cultural and historic beginning. From there we head to a remote private corner of Hwange National Park – home to abundant wildlife, such as enormous herds of plains game, and the uncommon sable and roan antelope, magnificent gatherings of elephant around vital waterholes and the sound of lion roaring to fill the evening chorus. Mana Pools National Park sits on the last remaining water source to the west: the mighty Zambezi River, with game both great and small and all the interactions of daily life that prevail. Exciting on foot experiences allow us to ‘interact’ with Africa’s magnificent wildlife. A trip to Zimbabwe is not complete without a visit to Lake Kariba, a great way to relax and unwind at the end of an adventure. Enjoy breath taking sunsets, wildlife viewing from the water’s edge and reliving some of your memories from the last ten days. Activities on this Exploration include game drives, nature walks, historic outings, sunset cruises and boating adventures. Experienced, passionate and knowledgeable guides travel with guests through this journey. A combination of air, road and boat transfers showcase the very different landscapes of Zimbabwe.
