Zimbabwe's Big Five

9 days & 8 nights, Private Journey

Mana Pools National Park, Hwange National Park & Victoria Falls

Discover the natural wonders of Zimbabwe on this adventurous journey. From Mana Pools National Park and the Zambezi River - home to hippo, crocodile and a great variety of birdlife - to the great herds of elephant in Hwange National Park, you'll explore the wild areas of Zimbabwe. Along the way, spot zebra and giraffe while sipping a cocktail in camp, take a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River and stand at the edge of the thundering cascades of Victoria Falls.

  • Day 1
    Arrive Victoria Falls / To Mana Pools National Park

    Upon arrival in Victoria Falls, fly to Mana Pools National Park, and continue to your camp located in the most remote part of the park. The camp is built around the Kanga Pan, the only permanent water source in the area available throughout the year, making it a hub for wildlife and a delight to explore on foot. The camp's meru-style tents are all furnished simply yet elegantly. You can experience game viewing from the comfort of the lounge or dining area, both with uninterrupted views of the active water hole.

    Mana Pools National Park

Additionally, an hour's drive brings you to the Zambezi River where guests are able to join additional activities such as canoeing and fishing excursions, on request. Perhaps you may choose to spend a night on the open air sleep out and experience the magnificence of an African night. Mana Pools is renowned for large numbers of elephant, buffalo, hippo and eland and predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog are all found in the area.
