The perfect destination for those who are looking to combine an exhilarating safari holiday with a trip to the majestic Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe is fast becoming one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations with intrepid travellers who are looking for something a little bit different.
A relative newcomer in the world of safari destinations, Zimbabwe was shunned for decades due to its political unrest, but it has recently enjoyed a resurgence of international travellers that has led to three brand new safari camps opening their doors in Zimbabwe’s largest National Park – Hwange.
Wilderness Safaris were one of the first operators to see the potential in Zimbabwe, and they have now established five stunning properties across Hwange National Park and Mana Pools. All Wilderness camps are designed to complement the environment, enrich the lives of local people, and educate future generations, and yet they somehow manage to combine this with a little bit of luxury that makes their safari holidays truly unique.
In Hwange National Park, Wilderness offer three luxurious camps to choose from, Davidson’s Camp, Little Makalolo, and the brand new Linkwasha Camp, which opened in May 2015. As all the camps are completely different in terms of design, layout and location, it makes perfect sense to stay at all 3 during your Zimbabwe Safari.
Wilderness Safaris have two further options in Mana Pools, Ruckomechi Camp and Little Ruckomechi Camp, which are situated on a large private concession in the Mana Pools National Park. Unlike the camps in Hwange that are open all year, the Mana Pools camps are only open from April to November each year, and as a result, the demand is exceptionally high.
If you are looking for a truly unique safari experience in Zimbabwe, Wilderness Safaris can tailor-make the perfect itinerary for you, and with their own planes to ferry you around from camp to camp, you can enjoy the very best animal sightings that this African gem has to offer.
