Matobo Hills, Victoria Falls and Mana Pools

Discover three incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites on this ten-night adventure across Zimbabwe that combines luxury safari, culture and one of the world’s natural wonders.

Begin in the mysterious Matobo Hills, seeking out ancient rock art and tracking rhino on foot, before three nights upstream from the thundering waters of Victoria Falls in Zambezi National Park.

Finally follow the river downstream to a private reserve bordering Mana Pools for four nights at one of Zimbabwe’s most luxurious safari camps – Tembo Plains – to canoe by elephants, spot big cats on drives and exhilarating walking safaris. You'll also be playing a role in an incredible conservation success story as the reserve becomes the centerpiece of the ambitious Project Rewild Zambezi.

Magical Matobo

Begin your exploration of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo, heading south out of the city and into the epic landscape of the Matobo Hills where rocky outcrops and immense granite boulders tower above the vegetation below. Here you’ll be staying at Amalinda, a unique family-owned lodge built into the geology with a rather spectacular infinity pool.

Days 4 — 7

Victoria Falls

Then head north to the mighty Victoria Falls. Known in the local Lozi language as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘The Smoke That Thunders’, or in Tonga as Shungu Namutitima, ‘Boiling Water’, the 108m tall and 1,700m wide roaring wall is a wonder of the natural world. You’ll be staying at a laid-back luxury lodge set alongside the Zambezi River in a private concession of a national park.

Sapi Reserve Safari

Fly following the Zambezi downstream to a sprawling Sapi Reserve on the border of the legendary Mana Pools National Park, 128,000 private hectares home to just one camp – the seriously sumptuous Tembo Plains. Founded to help support the area’s inspiring restoration from a hunting concession into a world-class safari destination, your four-night stay here plays a part in an inspiring conservation story.
