Classic Zimbabwe

Our tour of traditional Zimbabwe remains a favourite Zimbabwean holiday for many reasons. It features many of the classic sights and activities, from cruising the scenic waterways of Mana Pools National Park to the awesome Victoria Falls. Naturally, no Zimbabwe holiday would be complete without the wildlife, and this itinerary features plenty. You’ll get up close and personal with the largest elephant herd in Zimbabwe in Hwange National Park and there’s also an enviable range of game-viewing opportunities around Lake Kariba, led by our expert guides. Let us show you how to tour Zimbabwe in style.

UK - Johannesburg

Your Zimbabwe holiday begins with an overnight flight to Johannesburg. On arrival you’ll take a connecting flight to Harare, and from the Zimbabwean capital a light aircraft will carry you to Mana Pools. You’ll be staying at the well-known Ruckomechi Camp, set in an idyllic grove of acacia and mahogany trees. Relax and look out over the mighty Zambezi River.

Mana Pools

Ruckomechi Camp always provides a memorable stay for our clients: there’s excellent game viewing opportunities and a wealth of other activities to enjoy against the backdrop of the flowing river. When not out seeking lion, elephant or leopard in the private concession, you can while away the hours gazing out across the imposing mountainous backdrop from the camp’s thatched viewing deck.

Mana Pools - Lake Kariba

Today, a scenic light aircraft flight takes you over to Changa Safari Camp, conveniently located in a remote part of Matusadona National Park, on the shores of Lake Kariba.

Lake Kariba

Lake Kariba is a genuine African wilderness, allowing for amazing game viewing by boat, 4x4 vehicle or on foot. On any given safari you can expect to be wowed by elephant, buffalo, the toothsome Nile crocodile, lion, hippo, monkey, impala and zebra. You may be lucky enough to spot the occasional elusive leopard.

Lake Kariba - Hwange National Park

Another flight, this time to Hwange, Zimbabwe’s largest game reserve and home to a range of different camping options, from the traditional to the modern, including the elevated tent chalets at Elephant’s Eye. Wherever you prefer to stay you can be certain of a relaxed and comfortable safari experience.

Hwange National Park

Covering an expanse of over 14,000km2, Hwange National Park will make an entrancing home for the next two days. There are over 100 animal species in the park and 400 species of bird. For many visitors here the main attraction is big and grey: this is one of Africa’s last great elephant sanctuaries.

Hwange - Victoria Falls

The final stop of your Zimbabwe tour is sure to be one of the most memorable: the Victoria Falls. Named by the explorer Livingstone for the then queen, the Falls are a truly awe-inspiring sight. You’ll stay within earshot of their roaring waters, whether at the relaxed Victoria Falls River Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi, or the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel.

Victoria Falls

On the south bank of the Zambezi, the town of Victoria Falls has in recent years become a hotbed of adrenaline-charged activities. You can raft through one of the world’s toughest stretches of white water, or take a death-defying bungee jump. Naturally, more sedate sightseeing tours by plane, helicopter or microlight are also available.

Victoria Falls - Johannesburg - UK

Bid farewell to the Victoria Falls as your Zimbabwe adventure winds down. You’ll transfer to the airport, flying back to Johannesburg to connect with an overnight return flight to the UK.
