Day 2: Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

Your days in Zimbabwe will be filled with great wildlife sightings - from the giant elephants to the small insect-catching birds. On your Zimbabwe safari, you will partake on two game viewing activities per day.

Elephant frolic in the river on a daily basis and divide their time between the mainland and the reed islands. Large herds of females and babies cross over to the islands regularly and you will be amazed by the ability of these graceful animals to swim across the powerful current with their young.

There are over 400 bird species in Mana Pools and you will enjoy fantastic birding excursions. Africa skimmers are great sightings and they have been seen feeding on the river's edge. Lillian's lovebirds, pearl-spotted owls, painted snipe and western-banded snake-eagles are some of the many birds seen whilst canoeing down the river.

Once your luck has run out, return to your suite to freshen up before dinner. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks while the chef prepares a special meal. After dinner, you can spend the night star gazing or enjoying a nightcap around a blazing campfire.
