Full Itinerary

Day 1 to 3 – Kanga Camp

Kanga Camp is situated inland from the Zambezi River on the edge of Kanga Pan. During the dry season, the pan is the only source of water in the area, making it a hub of activity. From elephants to leopards and wild dogs, you can sit back and enjoy the view as the wildlife comes to you. One of the more exciting ways to experience this area is to go out on foot on a walking safari, seeing the wild dogs interacting with each other while on foot is breath taking.

Day 4 to 6 – Zambezi expeditions Camp

Zambezi Expeditions showcases one of the most magnificent settings in Zimbabwe’s iconic Mana Pools National Park. Fall asleep to the sound of the flowing river and chuckles of hippo and wake-up with the African chorus at dawn. This paradise allows you to connect with nature in a deep and meaningful way. Spend the mornings with Nick Dyer and the wild dogs, and the afternoons paddling along the Zambezi River.
