This region offers an incredible variety of landscapes, UNESCO World Heritage sites like Victoria Falls and some of the best wildlife experiences in Africa. This thrilling eight-night adventure offers unparalleled game-viewing in two of Zimbabwe’s most animal-rich national parks—Hwange and Mana Pools—and the chance to make an impact through excursions with conservationists and anti- poaching units.

A spot on this trip may be secured with a non-refundable deposit of $4,500, per person.
