Home to vast herds of elephant and buffalo, Hwange National Park is world renowned for its size and variety of landscapes, from granite outcrops and sandy desert to grass and woodlands. The wildlife here is spectacular and will easily engage young safari goers, with giraffe, zebra and a variety of predators and birds. Somalisa Safari Camp has a separate smaller camp, just away from the main camp, and can be rented on an exclusive basis for your family with your own private vehicle and guide.
Mana Pools on the banks of the magnificent Zambezi River is home to massive concentrations of hippo and crocodiles. Mana means ‘four’ in Shona and is in reference to the permanent pools within the conservation area. Whilst other water sources dry up during the dry season, these pools remain attracting a myriad of wildlife and some wonderful opportunities for families to explore. Similar to Hwange, accommodation here is intimate and luxurious camps such as Kanga Bushcamp can be exclusively rented out for your family.
Accommodation on a family safari in Zimbabwe isn’t just in small camps; there are some wonderfully authentic lodges, such as Big Cave in Matobo Hills. Blending seamlessly with its surroundings, this lodge has a wonderful swimming pool and a range of activities such as mountain biking and visits to local schools and villages.
