This Zimbabwe safari vacation begins in Johannesburg at the InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport Hotel, conveniently located in the airport for a relaxing evening before your flight to Harare the next morning.

Your first luxury safari experience lies in Mana Pools National Park where the Zambezi River divides Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Canvas-roofed tents greet guests at Wilderness Little Makalolo, a quiet camp in Hwange National Park. Each tent is appointed with soft bed linens, wood accents and distinct bush décor, with a spacious outdoor shower looking out to the camp's busy waterhole. Excellent biodiversity defines Hwange, with cape buffalo and elephant numbering near 30,000 and over 400 species of bird residing in its many crevices. Partake in game drives and peaceful nature walks before transferring to Victoria for the final nights of of your Zimbabwe luxury safari journey.

The impressive Victoria Falls are mere minutes from Victoria Falls Hotel, an aptly lauded Leading Hotel of the World combining old world charm with the modern conveniences of today. In addition to game drives in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, you will witness the power of Victoria Falls - "the smoke that thunders" - as it cascades over the cliffs to the canyon below. View the falls by air on the final day of your luxury safari, a farewell glance before departing Africa.
