This safari spends 3 nights at Little Makalolo, located on its own private concession within Hwange National Park, followed by 3 nights at Little Ruckomechi next to the Zambezi in Mana Pools National Park. Little Makalolo combines the canvas construction of a classic bushcamp with contemporary features, while Little Ruckomechi offers luxury accommodation in a scenic location, with a personal and exclusive safari experience. Drives and walks are highlights of both camps, while Little Ruckomechi also offers water-based activities such as canoe trips and tiger fishing. The Wild Cat is a great safari for combining classic and modern accommodation, and for appreciating the contrast between the open and arid Kalahari grasslands of Hwange, and the lush riverine ecosystems of Mana Pools.
On arrival into Victoria Falls you'll be met by your driver who will transfer you to Hwange National Park. Leaving the tarred road behind you'll then meet up with your guide and transfer into an open 4WD safari vehicle. You'll then set off on your drive to Little Makalolo for your 3 night stay here. Expect lots of elephant, and hopefully a few big cats - the camp sits between the territories of two large lion prides so these are the most common cat sighting, but cheetah and leopard also frequent the area.
After your time at Little Makalolo you'll transfer by light aircraft to a private concession joined onto the famous Mana Pools National Park. On arrival at the airstrip you'll be met by your guide to begin the short drive to Little Ruckomechi. With only three rooms, this camp allows for a really exclusive safari experience alongside the ability to explore the area by vehicle, on foot, or canoe or motorboat along the Zambezi River.
Leaving Little Ruckomechi, it's a short game-drive to the airstrip and then another light aircraft to Harare, ready for your onward arrangements.
