A national park known for its abundance of wildlife, animal sightings along the Zambezi River are extremely common.

Fly into Zimbabwe and connect with a domestic flight to Mana Pools National Park. Here you’ll spend three nights at Nyamatusi Camp, perched on the banks of the Zambezi. Whilst in one of the wildest and most remote parts of Africa, this lodge offers an authentic experience in a corner of Africa that remains relatively untouched. On game drives, watch the drama of the bush unfold before you, with the chance to spot zebra, kudu and eland. Head out on a bushwalk, following your guide along wildlife tracks, and canoe down the Zambezi to see elephants bathing in the river.

Day 4 - 7: Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe

  • Take a boat out onto the river to see elephant and hippo populations
  • Sit by the campfire and gaze up at the starry night above

The world’s largest man-made lake, Lake Kariba is known for its stunning red sunsets which make for great sunset cruising.

Fly to Kariba where you’ll spend three nights at Bumi Hills Lodge. Set amongst the hills, this lodge boasts the perfect view of Lake Kariba and the rich wildlife that line its shores. Wake up to the sound of birds chirping and splashing in the lake, and go to sleep with the vista of a fiery Zimbabwean sunset over the very same lake. Spend time fishing on the lake as you try to catch tigerfish, considered one of the most exciting gamefish. For incredible wildlife sightings, head out with a private vehicle to spot any of the resident lions.

Day 7: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

  • Enjoy High Tea at the famous colonial-era Victoria Falls Hotel with a view of the falls
  • See one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World

Known as ‘The ‘Smoke That Thunders’, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s most impressive waterfalls.

On your journey from Lake Kariba, you’ll take a flight to Victoria Falls where you’ll stop off for an afternoon tour of the Zimbabwean side. Considered the best side to see the falls, Zimbabwe offers sixteen different viewpoints to see this incredible waterfall, bisecting the rainforest for twice as much viewing. Before continuing on to the Upper Zambezi River, stop for a break in the little town of Victoria Falls, full of vibrant cafes and the chance to enjoy High Tea.
