Travel across Southern Africa in style with this combined 21-day South Africa and Zimbabwe trip! Guests will experience once in a lifetime views of the glorious Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba, the fascinating wildlife in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, the Hwange National Park and the Mana Pools National Park. Guests will stay at luxury accommodations throughout the trip which ends off in Johannesburg.
Jozibanini Camp is situated in the remote south west of Hwange National Park in a wilderness unused for nearly 20 years. The ecosystem here is semi-desert akin to the Kalahari in neighbouring Botswana. Ancient windblown fossil sand dunes are separated by shallow valleys where elephant paths have compacted the terrain, providing Imvelo with the opportunity for a experiment of game viewing by mountain bike.
All safaris are tailor-made to suit the guests in Goliath Safaris Tented Camp. There are no set routines, only wish-lists fulfilled. Goliath Safaris Tented Camp sleeps a maximum of 12 guests in luxury twin-bedded East African tents with en suite facilities, all nestled among the trees on the banks of the Zambezi River. Activities include game drives, walks, canoeing and fishing.
Little Makalolo Camp lies in the heart of Hwange National Park, in one of its best game viewing areas, overlooking a waterhole. It offers privacy for guests who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness. The camp’s six traditional-style tents – including a family unit – are spacious and en-suite, with indoor and outdoor showers. Solar power is used to heat water, ensuring a lighter environmental footprint.
Situated on a large private concession in the heart of the Zambezi Valley’s Mana Pools National Park, Ruckomechi Camp looks out from the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. Ruckomechi Camp is a remote, beautiful place with spectacular views of the broad flowing river, adjoining well-defined tree canopy and the mountains of the Rift Valley escarpment over the border in Zambia.
Warthogs Bush camp is Cameron Harvey Safaris’ small, friendly and rather unique budget camp on the outskirts of Kariba town. Despite its close proximity to urban life, it’s nestled in Mopane scrub on the shores of the lake and is bang in the middle of a game corridor. We have staff (and a cheeky dog) on duty 24 hours a day to help with information, washing up, making fires etc.
Experience the African bush like never before at Kapula Private Camp. With one of the largest concentrations of elephant in the world, Kapula Private Camp is the ideal big five destination. Situated adjacent to the famous Masuma dam picnic site in the heart of Hwange National Park, the largest park in Zimbabwe, Kapula is a stone’s throw away from the Victoria Falls/Kasane/Kariba tourist hub.
Linkwasha Camp lies in Hwange’s south-eastern corner, on a private concession. Situated on the same site as the old Linkwasha, the camp is close to the famed Ngamo Plains. This area offers fantastic summer game viewing – to add to the already excellent winter viewing from Linkwasha Camp itself; Linkwasha overlooks a pan that is a magnet for game in the dry season.
Somalisa Camp, having only 12 beds, has been designed as an environmentally low impact camp giving you a barefoot luxury experience with understated elegance. This unbeatable wild elephant sanctuary is known for its large herds of elephant and the Somalisa concession in Hwange National Park affords you with your private African wildlife encounters from the minute you step out of your tent.
Discover profound comfort in the luxurious accommodations at Gwango Elephant Lodge, along with waterholes where elephant, buffalo, hyena, giraffe, zebra, kudu, waterbuck, impala, sable and the big cats come to drink. Roan, eland, cheetah and leopard are also common here, although sightings are rare. For birders, Gwango is also a spectacular setting, attracting a large number of bird species.
