Nine days enveloped in tented bliss turn the primitive safari notion on its head, with plush accommodations and personalized service only enhancing the intimate nature of this Zambia Zimbabwe safari.

Itinerary Description:

This exclusive Zambia Zimbabwe safari begins in the Kafue National Park, where a helicopter will ferry you over the grasslands to the tented comforts of Shumba Bush Camp. Seek out the wildlife day or night and observe the scene from the raised deck at camp. Your stay also comes complete with a relaxing swimming pool and an endless view across the wildlife-saturated wetlands of Busanga Plains. Zambia is credited as the birthplace of the walking safari, and there is no better way to get up close to nature than with the guides of Shumba.

Next, your Zambia Zimbabwe safari allows you to spend a full day on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls with the Zambezi River always in view. Toka Leya's riverside confines are a refuge to hippos, elephants, and vervet monkeys, all visible from the private decks of each en suite tent. Enjoy an unforgettable tour of "the smoke that thunders" before continuing across the border into Zimbabwe for the remainder of your Zambia Zimbabwe safari adventures.

Conclude your journey at Little Makalolo Camp in the verdant Hwange National Park, where elephant and cape buffalo herds come in choruses of 30,000 strong and more than 400 different bird species can be spotted from the ground. Day and night game drives offer ample opportunity for nature-lovers to observe and interact with the Hwange habitat - a fitting punctuation to your epic and exclusive Zambia Zimbabwe safari.
