Join Rowan, the founder of Sensational Africa on this tour to some of the best destinations, safari camps and hotels on the African continent.  We thrive on taking our guests to our favourite places in Africa.  With tours at differing times of the year, each tour showcases Africa in different seasons but still offers incredible highlights along the way.  For us, the luxury is not only in the accomodation, but in the experience itself and my focus on this tour is to ensure our guests receive nothing short of an authentic African wildlife experience.

This Luxury African Safari starts in one of the seven wonders of the world, the mighty Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.  Our first accomodation for 3 nights is Old Drift Lodge.  There is nothing old about Old Drift but it gets its name from its location.  The Lodge is situated on the original crossing site where ox wagons crossed the Zambezi River trying to make their way north into Zambia.  Old Drift is number one on trip advisor for a reason, with large, well appointed luxury tented suites right on the banks of the Zambezi River.  The Guides are fantastic and one is met with the warm hospitality that Zimbabwe is famous for.  One gets absorbed into Africa by the ambience of the Zambezi National Park  behind and the Zambezi River in front.  With a guided tour of the Victoria Falls, lunch at the beautiful Lookout Cafe, game drives, walking safaris and morning and afternoon sunset cruises on the river your heart will already be lost to Africa.  It is also a great time to view the Victoria Falls as there is a considerable amount of water flowing over the Falls.  And, we still have the Hwange National Park and Mana Pools to come!

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe largest National Park at over 14,000 km².  Known for its large elephant population and open plains and predators, Hwange is one of Africa’s best wilderness areas.   After arriving in Hwange via light aircraft we take a game drive towards Little Makalolo Camp, our little piece of paradise for the next 3 nights.  Situated in a wildlife rich concession in the South Eastern part of Hwange National Park, Little Makalolo produces big experiences.  The camp is small and intimate with only 6 rooms and overlooks a productive waterhole.  The concession is well-renowned for its elephant, buffalo, predators and birdlife.  There is a whole range of activities we will experience here, day and night game drives, a log-pile hide, guided walks and some cultural tours.  There is also an exclusive star-bed available if availability and weather permits, this is our absolute favourite way to sleep at night. This area is remote and scenic and it offers us a perfect start to our Luxury African Safari.

From here we continue on via Light Aircraft into the belly of the wild Zambezi Valley to Mana Pools, one of Africa’s best wilderness areas which is famous for its walking safari opportunities.  Ruckomechi Camp is a luxury camp featuring 10 spcious and well appointed suites.  Here we will have the luxury of a wide range of activities from day and night game drives, guided walks, boating and fishing(fishing at an extra cost).  Mana is a seasonal area and we have taken the opportunity to include this incredible area where I spent many holidays as a child.  This camps also features a pool for those that want to take it easy and enjoy some down time before either heading home or off to their next destination which can be Tailormade for you by Sensational Africa.  On our last day we continue onto Harare International Airport for your departure or to an add-on destination.  From here one can easily access Kigali in Rwanda to see the Mountain Gorillas, or South Africa’s Cape Town which is an iconic tourism destination.

Our Journey’s are designed to be tailored to your special interests and the time of year you wish to travel.  If you see an itinerary that interests you, get in touch with a travel designer and we will use our in-depth knowledge and experience to design you a holiday to Africa that will go above and beyond your expectations.

TOP TIP – For those who have extra time and wish to add extra days to the tour, chat to Rowan to it make it happen.  We have some incredible add-ons such a Gorilla Experience in Rwanda, see the incredible Cape Town or Sabi Sand Private Game Reserves to make this well-rounded experience even better!  There is nothing we cannot design.

Thank you Rowan and team for organising our incredible trip to Africa. It was even more amazing than we’d hoped. The people, places and scenery really do have to be seen to be believed. Your knowledge of the local areas in Zimbabwe and Botswana helped to create a unique and tailored family experience!! And yes…that lion was about 2m away from our vehicle!!! 😬

Big thank you to Rowan at Sensational Africa for an amazing guided trip to Botswana and Zimbabwe. What an amazing host and experience with incredible wildlife. You planned my itinerary just right and all your recommendations were just perfect. You hit the mark with all the lodges with seamless transfers. I will definitely be booking my next trip soon back to Africa. I highly recommend Rowan and his team. Cheers from Canada, for now!

Sensational Africa have done us proud. They recommended and then organised everything from our flights to baggage storage at Maun; an amazing safari experience deep in the Kalahari in Botswana at a Ker and Downey camp (Dinaka). Whilst there it rained and we witnessed the desert flora and fauna coming to life. From flowers that appear for just a few days a year, to migrating birds on a stopover, bullfrogs feasting on nuptial termites, and frolicking baby wildebeest and impala. Our trip was a delight, made even more special by the exceptional hospitality, comfort and safari guiding provided by Dinaka Camp. We thank Sensational Africa for their outstanding organisation taking into account our personal preferences and wishes. Margie and Alan.
