Days 1 – 2: Elephants at the Smoke that Thunders

Arrive at Victoria Falls Airport & transfer to The Elephant Camp, set close by on a private game reserve. Check in for 2 nights on a full board basis, enjoying game drives & access to the area’s many activities.

This 8-day tour begins with the only tented safari camp on the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls. Set in a private reserve with views of the waterfall a few miles away, The Elephant Camp not only gives you the classic under-canvas experience but its in-house waterhole often attracts a local herd of elephants. And you’ll also have time to visit the nearby elephant sanctuary where you can feed orphaned babies and pose for jumbo-sized selfies. The camp combines superior luxury and romance and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy activities ranging from sunset river cruises to walking with tame lion cubs.

Days 3 – 4: A Hwange Hideaway

Fly from Victoria Falls to Little Makalolo in the Hwange National Park. Enjoy 2 nights on a full board basis with game drives, guided walks & cultural tours.

One of the few safari accommodations located within Zimbabwe’s famous Hwange National Park, Little Makalolo is an intimate 6-suite camp with a perfect setting over a busy waterhole. You can enjoy game viewing from the comfort of an armchair here but even more drama waits away from camp. Game drives and walks with expert guides open up the natural secrets of Hwange while a visit to a local village delivers the human aspect of life in big game country. Hwange is a great place to see classic animals such elephants, buffalo, giraffe and lions; it is also home to rarer creatures such as cheetah, wild dog and white rhino plus a 400 plus bird list.

Days 5 – 7: Into the Wild – Mana Pools

Fly from Hwange to Mana Pools National Park & Ruckomechi Camp. Check in for 3 nights on a full board basis plus game drives, boating, canoeing and guided walks.

Flying between Hwange and Mana Pools means you avoid a day’s tough travel by road; you’ll be settling in at Ruckomechi after lunch. One of Zimbabwe’s longest-established safari camps, Ruckomechi lies under shady trees overlooking the Zambezi River and the mountains of the Great Rift Valley. It’s a wonderfully romantic setting and you may be reluctant to leave your grand tented suite but game drives, canoe safaris, boat cruises and walking safaris are all on offer. You can even try your hand at fishing, maybe for the infamous tiger fish. Back at camp you have a swimming pool and relaxing hammocks to while away a hot afternoon; dinners are often served under the stars.

Day 8: The Journey Ends

Fly back to Victoria Falls for the end of the safari & your onward connection.

You’ll fly back to Victoria Falls Airport after a last breakfast at Ruckomechi and a transfer to the local airstrip. Your tour ends at Victoria Falls with your onward connection.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Lorraine (UK)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.
