Zimbabwe Made Easy (Vic Falls Stopover)

10 nights

SAFARI OVERVIEW

Travelling during the pandemic can be daunting – How do the tests work? Where do I get tested? How much does it cost?

Let African Bush Camps take the stress out of organising your ultimate safari with our new packages, including overnights where needed, and return transfers to ensure you can get to the COVID-19 testing facilities for those much needed PCR Tests. This safari is based in four unique areas of Zimbabwe, reducing the number of borders crossed and includes an overnight stay in Harare for testing at the end of your trip.

You will visit three of our award-winning camps, Somalisa in Hwange National Park, Bumi Hills on the shore of Lake Kariba, and Nyamatusi in the Mana Pools National Park. Every camp is different and the wildlife experience across these three regions cannot be replicated anywhere.

Take a break from the terrible stresses of the pandemic and join us for an unforgettable experience in Zimbabwe.

3 nights Nyamatusi Camp  |  3 nights Bumi Hills Safari Lodge  |  3 nights Somalisa Camp  |  1 night Victoria Falls Hotel (or Similar)

Next, you’ll head to a private concession in the heart of Hwange National Park – known as ‘the land of the giants’ for its big elephant herds. Somalisa is famous for its up-close encounters with elephants, which have become habituated to drinking from the ‘elephant pool’ in front of the camp, so it goes without saying that your time here will be bursting with wildlife experiences.
