The Tigerfish Safari begins with 1 night at Vundu Camp which provides the base for the trip. It’s a well run camp which places a huge amount of emphasis on the quality of its activities which include game drives, walks and canoe trips. Accommodation takes the shape of en-suite tented chalets all overlooking the mighty Zambezi River as it passes by on its long journey towards the Indian Ocean. After this first night the trip then heads for 3 nights on a Canoe Trail down a beautiful stretch of the Zambezi. In the evening a mobile camp will be setup on the river bank and accommodation is in comfortable en-suite tents. This is a real adventure, the number of hippo and sizeable crocodiles along this stretch of river mean it's not for the faint of heart. All of the trips are accompanied by expert guides with vast amounts of experience on the river. At the end of the canoe trip guests head back for another 2 nights at Vundu Camp. This safari includes transfers to and from Harare, both interesting flights in their own right, offering you a chance to see a large swathe of the country from the air.
On arrival in Harare you'll be met by your pilot at Harare International Airport for the light aircraft transfer, of about an hour, north to Mana Pools National Park. Vundu Camp is your base for the next few nights, and you'll be shown to your spacious tent with en-suite bathroom. This secluded safari camp is located amongst the tree line on the banks of the Zambezi River, and has beautiful views across the water. It's a great place to spot the elephant, buffalo, hippo and eland that roam the area. With a full 3 nights and three days here, you'll be able to enjoy not only the open-topped 4WD trips, but also canoe trips and first-class walking safaris.
After a good night's rest you'll wake to an early morning game drive and explore the area around camp. On return to camp you'll enjoy brunch before meeting your guide and heading to the water where you'll embark on the canoe trail. Your luggage will be taken by a ground crew who will head on and set up your first night's camp before your arrival. The next three days are spent gently passing down the Zambezi, often pulling up onto sure to explore more on foot.
After the Canoe Trail you will return to Vundu Camp 2 nights which will give you the necessary time to fully explore the area. You will be able to enjoy not only the open-topped 4WD trips, but also boat trips and first-class walking safaris.
After your time at Vundu you'll take a final flight, south to Zimbabwe's capital Harare. This transfer of about an hour takes you over the inland area of Mana Pools and up onto the Zambezi Escarpment and beyond. On arrival in Harare you'll be able to carry on with your trip, combining it with another safari element or simply catch a flight home.
