Nyala Safari

Nyala Safari: In full

This safari is possible from April to November – and combines three of the best camps in Zimbabwe's top parks into a real journey across the country. It starts with a road transfer from Victoria Falls into Hwange National Park and 3 nights at Linkwasha Camp. From here a light aircraft and then a boat take you north-east to Lake Kariba and 3 nights at Changa Safari Camp. A further flight transfer heads down the Zambezi to Ruckomechi Camp for 4 nights beside the Zambezi River and Mana Pools National Park. This is then followed by a flight south to Harare, where the safari ends.
