Lifetime Safari Expedition
3 nights Linyanti Expeditions | 3 nights Somalisa Expeditions | 3 nights Zambezi Expeditions
Your safari Starts in Maun, Botswana, and ends in Harare, Zimbabwe.
The Lifetime Safari Expedition begins in the far North of Botswana, the Linyanti Swamps. This area is incredibly diverse for habitats and vegetation that all support an equally diverse amount of animals. Riverine bush, swamps, Mopane woodlands and open plains. The Linyanti swamps are a beautiful area with sweeping views over the marshes into Namibia in the distance.
Elephant idly trudge through the swamps eating delicious succulent grasses while Impala and Bush Buck shelter in the forests, always weary of the Leopard that lurk in the shadows. Your accommodation looks out over the swamps and flood plains of this area. Spend three nights doing morning and afternoon game drives as well as walking safaris.
From the Linyanti its a short flight over the border into Zimbabwe and Hwange National Park for the next three nights at Somalisa Expeditions Camp. Here the bush is more open. Sable, Kudu, Elephant and large prides of Lion dominate the landscapes.
The camp is nestled under a grove of Acacia trees completely isolated from the rest of the park and other camps. Elephant are regular visitors in the camp and are often seen at the waterhole or drinking from the swimming pools. Spend three days doing game drives and walking on foot with the best guides in all of Zimbabwe.
Fly from Hwange into the iconic Mana Pools, a RAMSAR site, Important Birding area and World Heritage Site. Mana Pools is one of the top three safari destinations in Africa. Some of the finest walking and game viewing is in Mana Pools and coupled with your accommodation and views this is the perfect ending to an epic expedition.
