Buffalo Safari

Buffalo Safari: In full

This safari spends 3 nights at Kanga Bushcamp in a remote location in Mana Pools National Park before transferring to Hwange National Park by light aircraft and staying 3 nights in Somalisa Camp. This safari allows for an excellent overview of Zimbabwe's two main national parks. Not only is the game viewing excellent, with healthy populations of wild dog, buffalo, elephant, lion, and many other species throughout, but you also get to see the stunning scenery between the two parks. With canoeing available in Mana Pools, and game drives and walking safaris available in both parks, this is a fantastic trip for those travellers who are reasonably fit and adventurous, and in search of close encounters with wildlife.
