The Zambezi Circuit

Overview

This itinerary allows you to circle the Zambezi River and have you travel in both Lower Zambezi National Park and Mana Pools National Park. Both are fantastic and offer a vast amount of activities, both on the ground (game drives, guided walks, etc.) and water (canoe trips, fishing, etc.). Both parks are utterly stunning, and the properties we have chosen within them are lovely and all-inclusive - and in the best spots! Mana Pools is a little more remote than the Lower Zambezi, so expect some magical nights under the stars here.
