Destination Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Day 1 to 3

Victoria Falls

One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine a game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.

Overnight: Victoria Falls River Lodge

Victoria Falls River Lodge is the first private game lodge to be set in the Zambezi National Park. This newly built luxury tented lodge is situated on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.

Uninterrupted panoramic views of African sunsets and good wildlife viewing makes this uniquely located lodge the ideal place from which to explore Victoria Falls as it combines the safari experience with one of the world's most famous tourist destinations!

The main lodge has an open plan design and has been positioned just back from the river – in view of the elephants' natural evening route. Sit back and sip on a cocktail, under the shade of the thatched roof, as the elephants graze along the river line. It's a cool escape from the African sun.

Notes: Day 1, 2 & 3

DAY 1
On arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by one of our representative and transferred to Victoria Falls River Lodge. It is a 30-minute ride on tarred road to Victoria Falls town and then about a 20-minute boat transfer into Zambezi National Park and the riverside lodge. After settling into your magnificent room you can opt to join a sunset river cruise on the Zambezi River. After the cruise return to the lodge to freshen up and then enjoy a 3 course dinner in the main central area.

DAY 2 & 3
You have two full days at Victoria Falls River Lodge to enjoy the activities they have on offer. Please read below about these activities and arrange these with the lodge mangers onsite. During this time, you will also want to make a trip into town to see the magnificent Victoria Falls and possibly partake in some of the other activities that are available (not included). Typically, guests partake in early morning and late afternoon game drives or boat cruises, but you also might want to try your hand at a bit of fishing during the middle of the day. The camp is positioned perfectly on the river bank, with wonderful views so taking time to relax in your luxurious room is also highly recommended.

Meals consist of early morning tea / coffee and continental breakfast, followed by a big brunch after your activity. Afternoon tea offers a few delicious treats as well as hot and iced tea and coffee. A delicious 3 course dinner is served either in the main dining area or private dinners can be arranged on the Jetty. Drinks and snacks are provided on all activities.

Activities At Victoria Falls River Lodge

Game Drive
Guests have choice of either a morning or evening game drive in the Zambezi National Park. For the ultimate bush safari experience, head out in a game-viewer to explore the Zambezi national Park early in the morning, armed with hot beverages and a delicious supply of traditionally baked rusks. Alternatively, track a magnificent elephant herd as they move silently through the bush, or admire stately giraffe as they effortlessly weave their way through spiky acacia thicket – stopping to enjoy the phenomenal sunset with sun-downers and a variety of scrumptious snacks before returning to camp for dinner.

River Cruise
Watch from the comfort of a private river cruiser as the world awakens and the sun’s first rays skip and dance across the shimmering surface of the mighty Zambezi River – A truly revitalising way to start any day! For the not-so-early birds, sit back and let the gentle ebb and flow of the Zambezi lull and relax you, while you sip on sundowners, viewing nature’s creatures, big and small, coming to the water’s edge.

Additional On-Site Activities (optional)

Half Day Canoe Safari
This can be a morning or afternoon 4 hours long activity with lunch or dinner back at the lodge.

Full Day Canoe Safari

Consisting of seven elegantly furnished Sail Tents with gauze sliding doors, a glass wood-burner fireplace for the cold winter nights, and an overhead fan for the hot summer days, each tent has en-suite bathroom facilities including flush toilets, an indoor and outdoor shower, as well as a copper slipper-style bathtub. The main decking area includes split level decking with a separate lounge and dining area, as well as a small splash pool for guests overlooking the “Elephant Pool” and a natural waterhole where herds of game congregate to drink and where guests can relax whilst soaking in the African bush.

Then it’s your chance to see some fantastic wildlife on an afternoon and evening game drive with your experienced guide. Return to the lodge after sunset, freshen up and enjoy a delicious dinner and evening around the campfire, recounting stories of the afternoons wildlife sightings.

DAY 5
No two days are the same at Somalisa, game viewing experiences are tailor-made to guest’s preferences, please see details below of the activities available and arrange these with the lodge managers onsite to suit your individual needs.

Each of our vehicles are fitted with permanent canvas roofing to protect you from the varying weather elements, whilst still allowing an optimised up close and personal experience of wildlife.

Walking Safaris
Walking safaris are lead by armed and qualified guides. Because there is much more to an African safari than being driven around in a vehicle while passively viewing animals, Somalisa combines the ultimate itinerary with an expert guide, creating the complete journey, where experiences, knowledge and passions are shared and whereby a standard safari is transformed into an extra-ordinary one.

Bird Watching
Hwange National Park is known to have one of the highest diversities of wildlife and bird-life species than most National Parks in Southern Africa. There are over 470 birdlife species in the area.

Evening Game Drives

Guests who have booked a private vehicle can request for the roofing to be removed in advance of their safari.






Destination Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe
Day 7 to 8

Lake Kariba

The planet’s most voluminous man-made lake, Kariba is a popular tourist destination that was created in the 1950’s when the mighty Zambezi was dammed. It stretches for more than 200 kilometres along the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, forming a natural boundary between the two countries. The lake’s waters are home to abundant crocodiles, hippos, fish and aquatic birds, while its shoreline and islands are rich with terrestrial game such as elephant and buffalo. It has become one of Zimbabwe’s main tourist attractions offering houseboat holidays, fishing safaris and wonderful game viewing experiences.

Overnight: Bumi Hills Safari Lodge

Notes: Day 7 & 8

Day 7

This scenic flight, over some rugged terrain takes about 1 hr 20 minutes followed by a short drive up to Bumi Hills Safari Lodge. The views from the lodge are spectacular and you will most likely want to relax on the deck or by the infinity pool and soak it all in, whilst enjoying a drink and some lunch. In the afternoon you can go to one of the game viewing platforms, or enjoy a spa treatment (optional extra) to wind down the day or if you prefer a sunset boat cruise on the lake will guarantee an unforgettable day.

DAY 8
Bumi Hills is not only a wonderful place to relax, it also offers a wide range of activities from game drives and boats cruises to fishing and cultural village visits. The scenery is just beautiful and the area contains a huge diversity of flora and fauna which is not to be missed. Please see details of the activities on offer below and arrange these onsite with the lodge managers to suit your individual needs.

Activities at Bumi Hills

Wildlife Game Viewing
Bumi is unique among luxury safari lodges because of the exquisite added dimension of the water - Kariba is among the world’s largest man-made lakes and a genuine African wilderness with far more animals than people. This allows for glorious game-viewing by boat as well as the traditional open 4 x 4 vehicles and walking in the wild with an armed professional guide.

Bumi Hills - Lake Kariba

Sailing
Bumi Hills has recently introduced sailing to its list of exciting activities. The lake waters around Bumi Hills are ideal to explore from spacious 30-foot catamaran. Their fully qualified skipper is on hand to take you on a special cruise through beautiful archipelagos, bays, creeks and inlets to discover sandy beaches, birding havens and game rich ecosystems. As a special treat arrange with the Bumi Hills activities team to take a packed picnic lunch and stop off on an island for a unique private dining experience.

Birding
The Bumi area offers truly incredible birdlife, especially water birds, and hundreds of species have been recorded. It is a thrilling location for photography of the majestic scenery and wildlife, but also the prolific bird life for enthusiasts.

Bumi Hills - Lake Kariba

Fishing
Bumi is the prime fishing region of Kariba and is a major attraction that sets it apart from any traditional luxury safari lodge. Here it is rated one of Africa’s Top 20 adventures. You’ll thrill to catching the razor toothed tiger, pound-for-pound one of the world’s most powerful freshwater species.

Bumi Hills, Lake Kariba

Cultural Excursions
The Bumi Hills Wildlife Area is bordered in the north west by the Chalala and Mola communities, which are home to the Tonga, a delightful and very spiritual people who have resided in this area and along the length of the Zambezi River for centuries. They have preserved ancient traditions and still live a largely subsistence lifestyle that is reliant on fishing, livestock and small scale farming. In the village of Chalala these customs have melted together with the inevitable infiltration of modern ways of life. However, the luxuries of a permanent electricity and water supply to homes are still absent, leaving the communities still largely reliant on the surrounding environment for their livelihood.

Bumi Hills, Lake Kariba

Platform Sit
Bumi Hills has its own private game area, which extends below the lodge and includes a long stretch of lakeshore. Note that this is outside Matusadona National Park itself, to the west of it, and is more limited than the park’s vast area. Guests can use game hides, below the lodge, for closer views of the wildlife.

Bumi Hills, Lake Kariba





Destination Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe
Day 9 to 10

Mana Pools National Park

The life-giving power of the Zambezi River makes Mana Pools National Park one of Zimbabwe’s lushest and flourishing regions, designated as the country’s second World Heritage Site and known as one of the continent’s premier game-viewing regions. Canoe trips are offered year round and provide a unique and memorable way for visitors to experience the area’s striking scenic beauty and diverse fauna, while guided walks are a great way to see its pristine riverside forests.

Overnight: Kanga Camp

Kanga Camp is set within the most remote part of this World Heritage Site: Mana Pools. The camp is built around the Kanga Pan, the only permanent water source in the area available throughout the year, making it a hub for wildlife and a delight to explore on foot. Pristine and undeveloped, this area gives you a pure, unspoilt, private African safari experience. The diverse area has a multiple of open vlei lines, river systems of the Ruckomechi River, and mixed woodland types from Mopane woodland to Jesse bush and riverine forests. Pristine and undeveloped, this area gives you a pure, unspoilt, private African safari experience.

This 12 bedded luxury tented camp comprises of 6 luxury meru-style tents all furnished simply yet elegantly, with en-suite bathroom facilities which include flush toilets and running hot and cold water. Two of the tents are honeymoon units with a private deck for dining and relaxing in the afternoons. The honeymoon units can also be converted into a Family unit on special request. The main area has a comfortable lounge and dining area offering you uninterrupted views of a very active water hole. Relax in the upper deck lounge under the shade of a mahogany or sit on the deck below near the splash pool and enjoy Kanga − the old Africa in a new era.

Besides game drives and walking excursions, an hour’s drive brings you to the wild Zambezi River where guests are able to join additional activities such as canoeing and fishing excursions on special request. The major highlight during your stay at Kanga, is “Kanga Under the Stars” − an opportunity to sleep on an open platform and experience the magnificence of an African night lit up solely by a sky studded with stars.

Notes: Day 9 & 10

DAY 9
Sometime during the morning, depending on the flight schedules of the day you will be transferred to airstrip for your charter flight to Mana Pools. This flight takes about 45 minutes, partly across the lake and then down the Zambezi valley arriving at Mana airstrip where a game drive vehicle meets you and transfers you into Kanga Camp. Kanga is situated on a waterhole deep inland, it being the only water around for miles, it attracts a continuous variety of game. The focus of this camp then is to sit and watch and see what comes to you.

A three course meal is served in the dining area on the main deck under the trees. Wind down with some drinks and stories before retiring for the night.

DAY 10
One full day at Kanga offers a completely different perspective to the Mana Pools you will be experiencing during the following 4 days at Zambezi Expeditions on the flood plains by the river. As said before, the focus is the waterhole in front of the camp but you might also feel like doing one game drive or walk to see the area.

If you wish to do the sleeping out experience (Kanga under the stars), your guide will walk you about a kilometre out of camp to the elevated sleeping platforms. Your drinks will be waiting for you around the campfire, and your dinner will be served while you are out there. Enjoy the sounds of the wild and the African night sky.

Please see below more detail of the activities and liaise with you camp managers site.

Activities at Kanga Camp

Game drives
Game drives at Kanga Camp are always full of surprises. Safaris in this game-rich region of Zimbabwe means there are common sightings such as leopard and wild dog. During the dry season, game drives are often not needed as the game comes straight to the pan in front of Kanga where fresh water is pumped throughout the day. Being the only pan within a 10km radius, this brings the true meaning to an Armchair Safari.

Walking
Walking at Kanga Camp is absolutely superb with the guidance of one of our professional guides in camp, walking in Mana Pools is one of the closest things we can get to being in the complete wilderness. Get to know the flora of the region or track lions on foot. A walk in Mana Pools is something truly special.

Kanga Under the Stars
A more adventurous option from Kanga Bush Camp is a sleep out approximately a kilometre from camp, where four sleeping platforms have been erected high up on wooden stilts under large wild fig trees. These consist simply of a mattress, with pillows and duvets, laid on a wooden platform, and completely covered by a mosquito net. Down below, two platforms each share a flush toilet and a bucket shower. A late afternoon walk/ drive from Kanga, with your guide, will bring you to ‘Kanga under the Stars’, where staff will be waiting for you with ice-cold drinks around a campfire. Later there is a three-course dinner, and in the morning, breakfast is served before walking back to Kanga.





Destination Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe
Day 11 to 15

Overnight: Zambezi Expeditions Camp

The legendary Mana Pools is known for its wildlife rich flood plains and magnificent views of the Zambezi River, with the Zambezi Escarpment in Zambia as a dramatic backdrop to the scenery. The river boasts some of Africa’s most amazing tiger fishing and adventure canoeing safaris, creating the perfect combination of beauty and fun and making this World Heritage site a must-visit national park.

Zambezi Expeditions offers one of the best ways to experience Mana Pools on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River. The 8-bed luxury mobile camp is set up prior to your arrival. Comprising of 4 twin bedded mini-meru style tents with en-suite bathroom facilities including flush toilets and al fresco bucket showers, the camp gives luxury camping a new definition by virtue of its simple yet elegant and comfortable furnishings.

Return to camp for dinner served under the mess tent or on the riverbank.

One of the main highlights is a game drive along the flood plain in an open 4 x 4 Land Cruiser that takes you into the heart of an Africa dream abounding with the continent’s unique animals − eland, elephant, African wild dogs, water buck, big herds of buffalo, kudu, lion and leopard.
