Nyala Safari: In full
This safari is possible from April to October – and combines two of the best camps in Zimbabwe's top parks into a real journey across the country. It starts with a fascinating road/boat trip into Ruckomechi for 3 nights beside the great Zambezi River and Mana Pools National Park, followed by a flight into Zimbawe's west and 3 nights to explore Hwange National Park from the very comfortable camp at Little Makalolo.
Starting from London Heathrow, your scheduled overnight flight
with British Airways
will take you to Lusaka.
3 nights at Ruckomechi Camp (full board & activities) | Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe
In the morning, leaving Lusaka it's about a two-hour drive south, down the spectacular great escarpment to Chirundu, on the Zimbabwe border. Crossing the border, you'll soon be met by a speedboat for an amazing trip downstream on the Zambezi – which will take only an hour before you arrive at your camp, beside Mana Pools National Park. With a full 3 nights
and three days here, you'll be able to enjoy not only the open-topped 4WD trips here, but also boat trips and first-class walking safaris.
3 nights at Little Makalolo Camp (full board & activities) | Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
You'll transfer by light aircraft to your next camp, flying along the Zambezi River and Lake Kariba for some of the way. On arrival in Hwange National Park, one of the most diverse national parks in the world, you will immediately note how its environment contrasts with that of Mana Pools – it's totally different. Your guide will meet you from the plane at the start of your 4-night
stay – ample time to explore Hwang's Kalahari environment – an area of open vleis and thick woodland.
After your time at Little Makalolo you'll take a gentle 3-4-hour drive early in the morning out of the national park and on to Victoria Falls. It's easy to extend your stay here if you wish, but if you're not then this is the place to catch a flight on to Jo'burg for your overnight flight back to London Heathrow
You'll arrive back to London Heathrow, early in the morning.
