Wilderness Safaris has 6 exclusive lodges covering 66,400 hectares of conserved natural wonder. They employ 252 people, mostly locals and in their quest to conserve our heritage, they protect 17 vulnerable and endangered species. The Wilderness Safari lodge's all offer something unique and the guides are some of the top guides in Africa. Zimbabwe itself is also back to it's former 'glory' safari days and a destination we highly recommend here at Tailormade Africa.
Zimbabwe is home to some of southern Africa’s most evocative wildernesses – think of the game-rich, sweeping savannah plains of Hwange National Park, Mana Pools National Parks' legendary Zambezi woodlands and riverine splendour, and the mighty and magical, majestic natural wonder of Victoria Falls.
Experience these unspoilt, wild places with Wilderness Safaris: their staff’s unmatched Zimbabwean hospitality ensures guests are instantly at home upon arrival in camp. Knowledgeable and intuitive guides complete an unforgettable safari experience before seeing off their charges on the final leg of their Zambezi adventure – a taste of the best of Zimbabwe. Welcome to Zimbabwe – experience amazing!
Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s best-known and largest National park and is a real heavyweight in the contender for Africa’s finest. Certainly, in terms of the diversity of wildlife, birdlife and ecosystems.
Mana Pools National Park is a World Heritage site and Africa’s most sensational safari area! A bold claim we realise however the combination of some of the best game viewing alongside the most experienced professional guides, breathtaking scenery, the stunning lower Zambezi river and the most incredible walking safaris really do make this national park stand out.
Ruckomechi Camp, along with its smaller and more intimate sister Little Ruckomechi, are the real luxury offerings in Mana Pools. They both sit on the western edge of the national park in their own excellent private reserve which gives them licence to operate some activities that are not possible within the National Park boundaries. Ruckomechi Camp is owned and managed by Wilderness safaris who are one of Africa's top safari operators and conservationists and who work very hard at delivering high levels of service across the board. In both Ruckomechi and Little Ruckomechi this is very evident.
One of the original 7 wonders of the world and also a world heritage site, Victoria Falls is an absolute must-see add-on to any safari in Southern Africa, including the Hwange and Mana Pools combo. Indeed Vic Falls is so well connected now that even getting down from Kenya isn’t too much of a hardship.
