The final part of your trip is spent in Mana Pools National Park, at Kanga Camp – you will fly here from Hwange. This property is situated in the Kanga Pan, a remote western region. The main lodge consists of various wooden platforms on different levels, all under a canvas roof. At the top is the lounge and bar, while the lower areas are home to a dining space and a fire pit. There is a deck too, complete with plunge pool! Kanga’s six guest tented chalets are also raised above the ground. All are comfortable, with a pleasant open-plan feel. Due to the impressive numbers of animals roaming around camp, you do not need to leave the property to enjoy some excellent wildlife watching! This pastime is known as ‘armchair safari’. However, the game drives and walking safaris available here are of a very high standard and well worth leaving your comfy seat! You can also go on a ‘sleep-out’ safari, travelling a mile to a site where platforms have been secured high up among wild fig trees. One set of platforms has a nicely made-up bed under mosquito netting, while a flush toilet and bucket shower are available below. Featuring a three-course dinner and hearty breakfast the following morning, this experience is highly recommended! It really is a treat, to spend a night on safari under the stars.

Board basis and activities:
Full-board accommodation, including all meals, most safari activities, soft drinks, selection of house alcoholic drinks, and a full laundry service.

On Day 9, you will fly out of Mana Pools to Harare Airport, to connect on to your international flight home.
