Overview and highlights.

On this remarkable safari you will experience areas of great diversity. Firstly, the journey will take us east from Victoria Falls to Mana Pools National Park. Often referred to as Magical Mana it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and RAMSAR site of international importance. The Mana floodplains have a phenomenally rich biodiversity and will give you opportunity for up-close and personal wildlife encounters not only by vehicle but also on foot.

 

The tranquility of this region will give you opportunity to relax and disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Days will be filled with safari game drives, walking safaris (in my opinion one of the best ways to experience the African wilderness).

 

Our rustic safari camp and home the next five nights in the Mana Pools is run by one of the most well-respected guides in all of Southern Africa. With decades worth of knowledge and experience, he will be able to give a unique insight in to the wildlife that call the area home which has been acquired after spending decades in the bush. We’ll be walking in the footsteps of iconic species; lions, leopards, elephants, hippos and African wild dogs all call this place home. Giant trees dwarf the elephant population and may give you unique opportunities to witness elephants standing on tip-toe to reach the succulent branches to feed.

From Mana Pools, we'll catch an internal flight back west towards Victoria Falls before being transported to our next destination, Hwange National Park. Now, the way we'll get there is something a little bit special. We'll initially take a road transfer to a specific location before boarding the Elephant Express! A custom-build train carriage which will transport you in comfort through the African plains. Just imagine yourself sat in a comfortable chair, a cooling breeze and a refreshing drink in your hand as you head to your next stop.

The four nights accommodation in Hwange will be a more relaxed than the authentic bush experience in Mana Pools. Comfortable rooms with gorgeous views, en-suite bathrooms, hot running water and electricity.

From our base in Hwange, not only will we be able to go on safari game drives and bush walks, we'll also have access to strategically placed, ground level game-viewing hides perfect for photography!

After our four nights in Hwange are over, we'll head back to Victoria Falls and you could always continue to explore the wonders of Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls.

This outstanding journey has been considered to give you an exceptional wildlife experience - giving you the opportunity to witness and photograph a diverse range of African species. Leaving you with an abundance of amazing memories and images to take home and inspire you.
