Zambia and Zimbabwe are fantastic countries to visit in summer. With many species giving birth to their young, the predator sightings are frequent as they take full advantage of the abundance of inexperienced younger prey. Mornings are exceptional with temperatures perfect for warm pre-dawn game viewing and the brief afternoon thundershowers create a dramatic backdrop for some of the best summer wildlife viewing on the continent.
This five-night package combines the spectacular Victoria Falls with the remote and private Makalolo Concession within the vast Hwange National Park. Transfers between properties can be done by air or road (road to be quoted for separately).
DAYS 1 & 2 – TOKA LEYA, MOSI-OA-TUNYA NATIONAL PARK
Overlooking the Zambezi River and some of its islands is Toka Leya Camp. The camp’s dining and lounge areas offer ample space for relaxation. Meals are served on the sundeck, the pool deck and dining room all overlooking the Zambezi. Activities (on fully inclusive rate) include a tour of the Victoria Falls on the Zambian side, game drives within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, river cruises, fishing and guided nature walks.
DAYS 3, 4 & 5 – LITTLE MAKALOLO CAMP, MAKALOLO CONCESSION, HWANGE NATIONAL PARK
Little Makalolo lies in one of Hwange National Park’s best wildlife viewing areas. It offers privacy for guests who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness. The area is ecologically diverse, ensuring great numbers of animals year-round. The camp’s six spacious en-suite tents, with both indoor and outdoor showers, are nestled in the tree line, with solar power for hot water and lighting ensuring a lighter ecological footprint. A false mopane tree in the centre of the camp shades a separate dining and living area as well as a raised platform for views of the much- frequented waterhole. During siesta hours, guests can enjoy outstanding wildlife viewing at the log pile hide that overlooks the waterhole in front of camp. Activities centre on game drives in open 4×4 Land Rovers and guided walks.
