Ground Hornbill Safari

Ground Hornbill Safari

While most safaris in Zimbabwe involve flights to get around, this nine-night adventure links three highly rated camps by road, making it great value for money while still delivering on diversity.

Western Zimbabwe is home to the vast Hwange National Park which arguably provides the best wildlife viewing in the country. Diverse habitats host lion, leopard and rhino in good numbers and it is well known for its elephant population. Over 420 bird species have been recorded.

Spend six nights here in two camps. The first, Camp Hwange, is set where the Kalahari's plains fold into rugged hills. Owner run, it’s a real wilderness experience with top guiding and proper walking safaris. Then move on to Somalisa Expeditions, an intimate, relaxed bush camp in the heart of the park for more excellent guiding in a wildlife-rich area.

South lies Matobo National Park and Amalinda Lodge hidden among its boulder-strewn granite hills. There is a less of a focus on wildlife here – although you can track the park’s well protected black and white rhinos of foot – with a fascinating culture history to discover.
