Overview

Spend 10 days in three of Southern Africa’s often-overlooked yet fantastic wilderness places that pack a significant punch when it comes to luxury and big game watching away from the throng. In addition, as part of our Positive Impact project, every booking of this itinerary will include a donation of two stationery sets to the pupils of Maunga Primary School.

It’s one of Zambia’s most luxurious and modern lodges, with an exclusive-use boat, temperature-controlled wine collection, and private plunge pools.

This vast region is home to a high quantity of buffalo and elephants. In fact, Hwange has the world’s second greatest elephant population. Because Somalisa Camp is located in a private concession, you will be able to experience walking safaris, night drives, and game watching from concealed hides, which are not permitted in the public park.
