New Wilderness Safaris Exploration: Zimbabwe Showcase

Zimbabwe Showcase - Wilderness Safaris Exploration - Africa Discovery Zimbabwe

This new 10 day exploration takes a fresh look at some of Zimbabwe’s amazing spectacles, with diverse areas, activities and interests. Begin this adventure exploring the Matobo Hills, Rhodes’ grave and the surrounding National Park – a cultural and historic beginning.

From there we head to a remote private corner of Hwange National Park – home to abundant wildlife, such as herds of sable and roan antelope, large magnificent gatherings of elephant around vital waterholes and the sound of lions roaring to fill the evening chorus.

Mana Pools National Park sits on the last remaining water source to the west – the mighty Zambezi River, with an abundance of game both great and small and all the interactions of daily life that prevail. Exciting on-foot experiences allow us to ‘interact’ with Africa’s magnificent wildlife.

A trip to Zimbabwe is not complete without a visit to Lake Kariba, a great way to relax and unwind at the end of an adventure… enjoy breathtaking sunsets, wildlife viewing from the water’s edge and reliving some of your memories from the last 10 days. Activities on this Exploration include game drives, nature walks, canoeing, historic outings, sunset cruises and boating adventures. Experienced, passionate and knowledgeable guides travel with guests throughout this journey. A combination of air, road and boat transfers showcase the vast landscapes of Zimbabwe.

Congratulations Mombo: #1 in the world

Mombo Camp in Okavango Delta, Botswana

In exciting news for the recognition of the responsible ecotourism industry in Botswana and the Okavango Delta, Wilderness Safaris is proud to announce that Mombo Camp (including Little Mombo) is ranked No. 1 on the Travel + Leisure 2013 World’s Best Awards list of Top 100 Hotels.

While Mombo Camp and Little Mombo Camp have been recognised frequently on the Africa and Botswana categories of Travel + Leisure World’s Best lists since 2006, this is the first year that they have featured at the very top of this prestigious record.

No. 1 Mombo Camp and Little Mombo Camp, Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana
Score: 96.60

Mombo Camp’s nine tents blend flawlessly into the open plain of the Okavango Delta while retaining a luxurious feel. Private balconies make for prime bird watching, and each tent features mosquito netting on four-poster beds and both indoor and outdoor showers.

Tent No. 1, the farthest from the dining area, is the most tranquil. Offering even more privacy are Little Mombo Camp’s three guest rooms, which are set apart and feature a private plunge pool.

Raised walkways connect tents and allow rhinos, elephants, and other animals to wander freely through the camp. Relax with a post-game drive cocktail in Little Mombo’s treehouse-luxe library.
