Zambezi – 12 Days – $6995 – pp based on double occupancy
Highlights: Memorable safari tent camps, wildlife and world-class river adventure.
Explore the Zambezi River Basin and the game parks of Zimbabwe. Visit the Devils Pools on the edge of Victoria Falls in Zambia and revel in one spectacular African adventure after another. This incredible journey starts in Victoria Falls, where you are quickly whisked to Iganyana Tented Camp for two glorious nights. We then wind our way down the Zambezi Basin both above and below Victoria Falls. Game viewing, kayaking, rafting, and hiking are just a part of this active and rewarding wildlife safari. August through November are the best months to see game and experience the Zambezi Basin as it’s the end of the dry season and all the animals come down to the banks of the river to drink, swim and frolic in the shallows. The bush has been either eaten or has died down, so seeing the animals is much easier.
Our unique trip combines five-star decadence with fun-filled days of adventure while exploring a wide variety of environments in search of the Big Five. We will visit several highly developed and protected national parks as well as exploring remote wilderness areas rarely visited. The wildlife in the Zambezi Basin has thrived and the elephant herds of Zimbabwe are among the largest and most protected of Africa. The game viewing is outstanding, and our trip allows you to experience Africa without the crowds. We use 5-star luxury camps combined with wilderness outpost camps, so you get to immerse yourself in true African style.
