Discovery of the major wildlife reserves of Zimbabwe

May to November 2021

15 days / 13 nights – from £6,490 per person

Tailor made safari

Hwange, Matusadona, Lake Kariba and Mana Pools are part of the most beautiful natural environments of Africa.

From an open 4×4, in a canoe or during walks, you will discover these incredible reserves, characterized by an exceptional diversity of wildlife and a very limited number of visitors. You will be able to immerse yourself in these ecosystems and benefit from optimal conditions for observing and photographing wildlife by staying in small mobile and seasonal camps of canvas tents in the national parks of Hwange and Mana Pools, and in a small lodge created by a legendary guide on Lake Kariba.

Travel between the parks are provided by taxi planes.
