Wild Cat Safari

Wild Cat Safari: In full

This safari spends 3 nights at Camp Hwange, deep inside a remote part of Hwange National Park, followed by 3 nights at Vundu Camp next to the Zambezi in Mana Pools National Park. Camp Hwange has developed a reputation for fantastic guiding, great game densities and a flexible approach to its activities. It’s down to Earth in its design and comfortable rather than luxurious in decoration and furnishing. Similarly, Vundu prides itself on its guiding, both resident and freelance guides are used and all are of an extremely high quality.

Drives and walks are highlights of both camps, while canoe trips and fishing can all be indulged in on the river at Vundu. The safari begins in Victoria Falls and ends in Harare. The Wild Cat is a great safari for gaining an appreciation of the contrast between the open, arid Kalahari grasslands of Hwange National Park and the lusher, riverine ecosystems of Mana Pools.
