Hwange Main Camp - zimbabwe
Embark on full day game drive, as early as 6 am after breakfast, for the real nature encounter. The park has different types of vegetation and each area is associated with certain class or type of animals and birds that feed on the vegetation in that vicinity.
After a short morning drive, take a detour for a mid-morning tea break. The loop road is pleasant for a day drive. Many small animals are abundantly found here and so are some types of birds. This stopover is a preamble to the main animal encounter.
The main tour begins now where clients will spot many animals, including the Big Five, and birds pleasing to the eyes and ears in the beautiful landscape. Here, you see the law of the jungle at play where survival is for the fittest.
After a mesmerizing 5-hour safari drive and stopovers for refreshments, you will be finally taken to Nyamandlovu platform to have packed lunch. Here, you can unwind and enjoy lunch while watching the animals coming to drink water.
Post lunch, we drive towards the Dom waterhole that is unique for spotting nocturnals (lions, leopards, hyenas, jackals and wild dog) as they do their hunting. The Dom waterhole will accord the clients the privilege of seeing the beautiful African sunset as it transforms the landscape into a beautiful kaleidoscopic spectacle. This point sums up the activities for the day as you head back to the main camp for rest.
The journey back is marked by a lazy herd of elephants and buffalos as they migrate to their territory to rest.
sinamatella camp - zimbabwe
