Day 1

On arrival in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe meet your charter to Mana Pools National Park. Here you will be met by your professional guide who will game drive you alongside the Zambezi River to our Zambezi Life Styles camp where you will spend the next 3 nights of your safari.


Day 2

Come on the adventure of a lifetime for an experience like no other. This safari takes you to several prime spots of this World Heritage site allowing you to explore new territory every day. Each night you will end up back at a mobile tented Camp, which is a comfortable camp on the banks of the Zambezi that is set up for the season each year. Each tent is a spacious mini meru-style tent with en-suite bathroom, flush toilet and outdoor bucket shower.

There are plenty of opportunities to walk the famous floodplain of the Zambezi valley, exploring the Mana Pools wilderness areas well off the beaten track. Wildlife to be seen includes hippos, crocodiles, lions, wild dogs, leopard, hyenas, elephant, buffalo, waterbuck and many other antelope.


Day 3

Canoeing is an optional activity which will probably see you doing about 8 hours of light paddling each day in a steady current of about five kilometers an hour. The whole trip will be along the shoreline in Zimbabwe’s Mana Pools National Park covering a total distance of about 50 kilometers, where you’ll enjoy viewing of wildlife from a totally different perspective.


Day 4

Enjoy breakfast before road transferring to the airstrip. Board a scheduled charter flight to Somalisa camp in Hwange. You will be met by your guide game driven to Somalisa Camp where you will spend the next four nights of your Safari


Day 5

Somalisa Camp is set in the heart of Hwange National Park, known as the land of the giants for its big elephant herds. Somalisa is an authentic bush camp, a blend of old African charm and elegance together with an exclusive safari experience. Its stunning location tucked away on an acacia island along the edge of an ancient seasonal flood plain gives it breath taking views of the savannah plains of the famous Kennedy Vlei line. At Somalisa Camp, you will experience the heightened romance of the African Bush in one of the most natural environments in Africa. This is the way Africa was meant to be explored.


Day 6

Only six elegantly furnished canvas tents with en suite bathrooms, flush toilet and romantic alfresco bush shower make up this camp. The décor echoes of an old era, from colonial to the ancient tribes of Africa, telling the story from all corners of this magnificent continent. It’s stunning main area and pool lends to complete relaxation, whether it be with a cup of tea or one of our refreshing cocktails; overlooking the pan where the herds of game congregate in large herds, offering rare moments of outstanding nature.

The use of solar lighting ensures your comfort without interfering with the environment and the area's natural surrounds. The lounge and dining area is at the forefront of the camp, tucked under a soaring canopy of trees. Wide and well-traversed Elephant paths make up the paths connecting your room to the main area.


Day 7

Activities include guided walks lead by qualified and passionate guides who will share their knowledge and love of the bush with you, game drives and spot lighting as well as game viewing from hides. Walking and game drives will allow you the opportunity to observe elephant, kudu and sable antelope, zebra, wildebeest, gemsbok, the rare and endangered roan antelope, buffalo, giraffe, white rhino, lion, leopard, hyena, and many other wildlife species.
