Itinerary

Days 1 – 3: A Secret Safari

Arrive at Harare International Airport & connect with a flight to Gonarezhou National Park. Check in at Chilo Gorge Safari Lodge for 3 nights on a full board basis & enjoy game drives, guided walks & cultural tours.

Few people have heard of Gonarezhou National Park; even fewer have visited it. Lying in a remote corner of southern Zimbabwe, Gonarezhou means elephant in the local language and there are several thousand of them there, dwarfed by the park’s enormous baobab trees. Your accommodation is set on a cliff overlooking the Save River. You’ll explore the park on game drives with expert guides and enjoy boat cruises – a great way to see the river’s extravagant birdlife. And you’ll have the place to yourself most often than not as visitor numbers are very low. Back at camp, your tented suite has river views and comes complete with mini bar and private veranda with lounge chairs. It’s Zimbabwe’s genuine hidden gem.

Days 4 – 6: On Safari at the Smoke that Thunders

Fly to Victoria Falls & check in at The Elephant Camp, set in a private nature reserve. You have 3 nights here on a full board basis plus an interactive elephant experience & access to Victoria Falls activities.

Your under-canvas experience doesn’t stop at Victoria Falls. Your accommodation is The Elephant Camp, authentically set in a private reserve a few miles out of town. The views are magnificent and you can sit at camp and watch spray from Victoria Falls rising out of the Batoka Gorge. And with regular visits from the local elephant herd to the camp’s waterhole, the game viewing doesn’t stop either. With two full days, you have plenty of time to tick of your list of activities here, whether it’s white-water rafting and bungee jumping or sunset cruises and walking with lion cubs. Staff will arrange any bookings you need and the camp has regular free shuttles into town.

Days 7 – 9: Five-star Hwange

Fly from Victoria Falls to Hwange National Park & Linkwasha Camp, set in a private concession. You’ll enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis including game drives & guided walks.

A short hop by air takes you to Hwange National Park and its most luxurious camp – Linkwasha. Newly opened and built to be as eco-friendly and energy-efficient as possible, this beautiful tented camp sits in a private concession within the park. This gives its guests the distinctive advantage of exclusive game sightings as well as spot-lit night drives and walks with expert guides. Hwange is Zimbabwe’s heavyweight reserve and home to a wide range of big Africa mammals, especially elephants, buffalo and lion. There are opportunities to visit local villages to learn a little about life in big game country; you’ll also have the chance to see for yourself on fly-camping sleep-outs – an unforgettable experience.

Days 10 – 12: To the Zambezi

Fly from Hwange to Mana Pools National Park & check in at Little Ruckomechi Camp for 3 nights on a full board basis. Game drives, walks, boating & canoe safaris.

Protecting a great stretch of Lower Zambezi River, Mana Pools National Park gives you the opportunity to add another dimension to your safari: game viewing by boat and canoe. Little Ruckomechi Camp offers a multi-activity approach to its safaris and the mix of water and land game viewing is especially rewarding for wildlife lovers. Bird watchers will tick off many species, and it’s a great area for predators including big cats, crocodiles and the extremely rare wild dog. Newly opened and built to exacting environmental standards, the camp’s location in a private concession means an exclusive experience.

Day 12: The Journey Ends

Fly from Mana Pools to Victoria Falls for your onward connection & the end of the tour.

After breakfast at camp you’ll transfer to a local airstrip for a flight back to Victoria Falls Airport and the end of your safari.

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!

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!

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!!!

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 made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. 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!!!!!

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.
