Best of Zimbabwe & Zambia

A more expansive version of the Distinctive Zambezi & Kafue safari, this 11-day adventure is the ultimate itinerary for encountering the essence of these two countries. This region of Africa is fast becoming a must-see destination for any true African adventurer, with its incredible variety of lush geography and the accompanying diverse wildlife. Equal portions of the trip are spent in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, Mana Pools National Park, and Zambia’s Kafue National Park. And the journey culminates with one final day and night near the iconic Victoria Falls.

Your three nights in Hwange National Park will be spent at intimate Little Makalolo Camp. Morning and evening game drives promise encounters with elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, and blue wildebeest as well as predators including lion, leopard, cheetah, and wild dog. Transfer for the next three days to Ruckomechi Camp that offers breathtaking views of the Zambezi River and Africa’s Great Rift Valley within Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park. The highlights of your stay will include daily and nightly game drives, as well as the opportunity for walking and canoeing safaris. This region is world-renowned for its dense and diverse wildlife populations. Transfer for three more days to Zambia’s wildlife epicenter, Kafue National Park. Busanga Bush Camp is nestled in a remote island thicket within the Busanga Plains that form the fertile heart of Kafue. The river, estuary, grassland, and forest habitats are home to over 400 species of wildfowl as well as mammals from hippo to lion. Your journey culminates with one unforgettable day and night at awe-inspiring Victoria Falls.
