Trip Highlights

  • Paddle through the wilderness with an exclusive 4-day canoeing expedition on the Zambezi River, passing through the epic big game of Mana Pools National Park
  • Wander into the wild with a 3-day walking safari in Hwange National Park, savoring astonishing encounters with elephants, giraffe, rhino, and dozens of unique species
  • Stand before Victoria Falls and get soaked by its spray, the best way to appreciate the force of the world’s most powerful waterfall
  • Camp on remote Zambezi River islands, where you’re surrounded by wildlife and enveloped by nature
  • Journey into landscapes that receive just a handful of visitors a year; you paddle parts of the Zambezi cut off by road or trail, and walk in a restricted private concession
  • Discover Zimbabwe’s animals from new perspectives and lose track over the species you encounter: buffalo, rhino, eland, cheetah, rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, and so many more of the continent’s icons
  • Complement the canoeing and walking with short game drives, a chance to get really close to lions and leopards
  • Fully immerse yourself in the sounds and smells of an untouched world, gaining a true appreciation of Africa and a raw connection with the landscape
  • Spend a day game driving around Matusadona National Park, another of Zimbabwe’s remote wonderlands
