9 Day lodge safari - Wings over Zimbabwe's best

If it's your first time on safari or you want to see the best of Zimbabwe's big game without sparing the comforts, this is the trip for you. The tour covers the top safari destinations in the country, while staying at the finest bush camps available. There's no skimping on this one - it should be called the best of the best

Your first two nights are spent at the charming Elephant camp 10 minutes from Victoria Falls. This is without doubt the finest safari camp in Northern Zimbabwe. It's all about attention to detail, superb staff and your host - the legendary Jonathan Ellway. During your stay you will be taken on a tour of the falls and on a sun downer cruise on the Zambezi.

Your mid morning charter flight to Little Makololo in the Hwange National Park will take about an hour, where you will be met and transferred to "Little Mak" - arguably the nicest small lodge in the park and in the heart of the private Linkwasha concession with its fantastic game viewing. The next two days are spent exploring the area doing game drives and for the more adventurous, morning walks.

From Little Mak it's a 45 minute flight to Musango Camp on the shores of Lake Kariba. Musango overlooks the Matusadona National Park where the animals saved during Operation Noah were relocated. The camp is run by Steve Edwards, a previous park warden, who is passionate about the area and its people. The park can be explored by vehicle, foot and by boat with the lake providing an extra dimension.

A special visit to Batonka village and the Rhino sanctuary can be arranged.

From Musango it is an hour flight to Mana Pools (perhaps stopping in Kariba to refuel) where you will land and be met at the private airstrip servicing Ruckomechi Camp. The views of the river and escarpment are stunning in this world heritage site.

Activities at Ruckomechi take place in the private concession within the park, exploring the floodplains by vehicle and for the more adventurous – on foot. Trying ones luck at landing the famed tiger fish and a sunset cruise or a short canoeing safari are also offered.

On your last morning you will be transferred to the airstrip for your charter flight to Harare or back to Victoria Falls
