Track rhinos on foot
Matobo Hills National Park offers the rare opportunity to track rhinos on foot, through beautiful landscapes containing a 200-million-year-old range of domes, spires and balancing rock formations.
Take a canoe safari
For an alternative safari, glide along the lakes of Mana Pools National Park looking for buffaloes and elephants along the water’s edge, as well as predators like lions, wild dogs and leopards.
See the sunset over Lake Kariba
After an active day on or around the lake spotting wildlife, relax at your lodge and watch the sun go down over the water – a great photo opportunity.
Visit the Painted Dog Conservation Project
Painted dogs, also known as African wild dogs, are unique to Africa and among the continent’s most endangered species. The Painted Dog Conservation Project has been working for 20 years to protect them. The visitors centre and trail system in Hwange National Park are well worth a visit.
