Itinerary Description:

Ker & Downey has harnessed all of its African safari specialists to bring you this unforgettable Zimbabwe adventure safari. Long regarded as a supplemental stop on the African safari circuit, Zimbabwe has reclaimed its role as a premier safari destination, and this tailor-made luxury Zimbabwe safari is specifically designed to introduce you to all of its unbelievable bests.

Begin first in Zimbabwe's largest game reserve in Hwange National Park. Known as the "home of the elephants," Somalisa Camp is an intimate hideaway promising adventure and luxury in the African bush. The elephants are known to make themselves at home here, while walking game drives reveal nearby populations of zebras, giraffes, and white rhino.

You will then continue your Zimbabwe adventure safari in Mana Pools National Park, a designated UNESCO World Heritage for its untamed wildness and biodiversity. You will have the unique opportunity to experience Mana Pools from two drastically different viewpoints: first, along the Zambezi River at Zambezi Life Styles, and second, an hour "inland" within the remote riches of the Kanga Pan surrounding Kanga Camp. While canoe safaris, walking safaris, and game drives are certainly highlights at both sister properties, they also serve up exceptional "armchair safaris", when the resident Big Five and plains game come to the front door for refreshment at the adjoining river or pan waters.

Finally, an adventure safari in Zimbabwe would be incomplete without a visit to the legendary "smoke that thunders" at Victoria Falls. The final two nights of your Zimbabwe adventure safari is therefore at The Elephant Camp, a beguilingly serene lodge renowned for its proximity to the yawning Victoria Falls, as well as its charming Sylvester the cheetah and Wild Horizon elephant ambassadors who adore interacting with guests. Elephant-back safaris, Zambezi sunset cruises, and Victoria Falls canopy tours are also on hand to create one final, lasting impression of Zimbabwe's standalone surprises.
