Best of Zimbabwe really sums up this holiday. You are flown to four different destinations across the country, each a highlight in its own right, and are given ample time to enjoy all to the full. Scenery and wildlife vie for your attention and the accommodation is pretty impressive too! It's the perfect introduction to the attractions of this beautiful country.

Your adventure begins at Victoria Falls. This iconic sight makes a suitably dramatic backdrop and, coupled with safaris in Zambezi National Park, you might think it would be hard to match. Next you visit Hwange, Zimbabwe's largest national park, where you take part in that quintessential safari activity, the 4x4 game drive, exploring the varied terrain and marvelling at the profuse wildlife. Perhaps now craving some relaxation you are transported to the shores of Lake Kariba. It's a picturesque setting and the sunset cruise is not to be missed. Walking safaris are conducted here which open up a whole new microcosmic world and showcase your guide's expertise. Mana Pools, your final destination, is a true wilderness and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stunning scenery, abundant animal and bird life, remote and wild, it's just possible we've saved the best till last!

Your accommodation has been selected not only for their locations and but also for their style, size and service. At each you have a lovely en-suite room with your own deck allowing you some all-important privacy. Social areas are sited to make the most of the views with firepits and pools luring you outdoors. They range from six to fourteen rooms, so you never feel part of a crowd, and all offer the highest levels of service. We've included flights between locations so less time is spent travelling leaving you more time for activities and relaxation.

By the end of your holiday you will feel that you really have been treated to the best of Zimbabwe.
