11 NIGHTS / 15 MAY – 15 NOVEMBER 2020


An 11 nights safari that encompasses 3 National Parks – the Kafue, Hwange and Zambezi National Parks and gives you 3 completely different safari experiences and habitats to experience in one trip!

Zimbabwe / Zambia Explorer Safari: Brief Overview

The wide open plains of the Southern Kafue and the rugged hills and rock carvings of Bumbusi in Hwange National Park are the perfect safari combination for true safari enthusiasts and lovers of the wilderness. The variety of mammal and bird species in the Southern Kafue along with the seasonal high density close up viewing of elephants and great walking safari opportunities at Bumbusi offer 2 really unique safari experiences. Nestled in between the 4 night stay at both camps is a wonderful 3 night stay on the secretive Tsowa Island on the Zambezi River just above the Victoria Falls.
