On arrival at Victoria Falls, road and boat transfer to the exquisite Victoria Falls River Lodge, on the lapping shores of the Zambezi River. Each luxury thatched tented suite is imaginatively decorated in an African theme, with rich cotton, linen and billowing mosquito netting setting a romantic atmosphere.
In the distance marvel at the "Smoke that Thunders", spray churned up from the falls itself while in the river watch hippo and crocodile lazing. Africa's Adventure capital, many activities are possible and include a walking tour of the Falls from more than twenty vantage points, sunset river cruise and guided game drives, as well as helicopter flights and river rafting!
A one hour flight lands in the private Makalolo concession of Hwange National Park, where Linkwasha Camp is located. The camp's guest tents are bedecked with an eclectic mix of contemporary interiors with the airy design of the main area featuring an indoor fireplace, generous plunge pool and a multi-level deck for raised game viewing across the plains.
Featuring a myriad of waterholes, enjoy some of Africa's finest game viewing. View resident herds of African elephant with lion, leopard, wild dogs, huge buffalo herds and rarely seen sable. Activities include game drives, watching wildlife from the camp's log pile "hides", nature walks and village visits.
A two hour flight over Lake Kariba lands in Mana Pools National Park. The best private concession in Mana Pools is Ruckomechi Camp, on the banks of the Zambezi and looking out onto the Great Rift Valley in Zambia. The side placed "off-set" meru tents provide the best views of the river with comfortable interiors while the main area features a lounge/ bar, diningroom and large fireplace under the stars!
Mana is renowned for large numbers of hippo, elephant, crocodile and buffalo. On land, predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog are frequently seen. Expertly led game drives, boating, canoeing, walks and catch-and-release fishing for tiger fish are on offer.
With Cape Town a flight away, this vibrant, eclectic city is a destination not to be missed at the end or beginning of this safari! The "Mother City" surrounds Table Mountain and is located on the south western tip of Africa. Take a cable car to the mountain top and enjoy endless Atlantic ocean vistas, amble through the World Heritage gardens of Kirstenbosch or visit Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated.
