This flying safari is a seamless combination of three of the most diverse and spectacular wildlife areas in Zimbabwe – Hwange, Matusadona and Mana Pools - as well as a stay at the magnificent Victoria Falls.
Your 10-day adventure starts in Hwange, Zimbabwe’s foremost national park, which lies along the border with Botswana and is renowned for its concentrations of wildlife, including lion, leopard and wild dog. You then continue to the relatively unknown wilderness of Matusadona National Park, before heading to the mighty Zambezi River and Mana Pools National Park, famed for its scenery and magnificent wildlife viewing.
The journey begins and ends at Victoria Falls, which offers the unforgettable spectacle of nature’s raw power, and one of the world’s great natural wonders.
Arrive Victoria Falls & fly to Hwange National Park
Fly to Lake Kariba, Matusadona National Park
Fly by light aircraft to Lake Kariba, where you will be met and transferred by boat (20 minutes) across the lake to your camp, situated on a private concession within Matusadona National Park.
Accommodation: Changa Safari Camp, 2-nights
Fly to Mana Pools National Park
A short flight by scheduled light aircraft takes you to to Mana West Airstrip, followed by a short vehicle transfer to your camp in an idyllic spot, overlooking the Zambezi River.
During your time at Mana Pools, enjoy early morning walks with an experienced guide, morning and afternoon game drives, night drives and canoeing.
Accommodation: Ruckomechi Camp, 3-nights
Fly to Victoria Falls & depart
Fly back to Victoria Falls by scheduled light aircraft (via Lake Kariba and Hwange) in time to connect with your overnight international flight back to the UK.
You should note: There is so much to see and do in Victoria Falls that we highly recommend adding a night or two here, so you can fully appreciate this natural spectacle. Alternatively it may be possible to fly from Mana Pools National Park to Harare (instead of Victoria Falls) at the end of your trip. Or why not consider extending your stay (at additional cost) to visit the Matobo Hills in Matobo National Park close to Bulawayo, yet another of Zimbabwe’s wonderful highlights?
