Take 4 days and join Leon Varley in an exploration of a pretty much forgotten spot on the map. We’re in the Sinamatella region walking in Hwange. A very special rolling wilderness known as “Zimbabwe’s Kruger”. The wildlife certainly lives up to its namesake too!
Staying at an exclusive, intimate seasonal bush camp on the banks of the Lukosi River. The traditional walk-in tents have ensuite bush bathrooms and proper beds. With camp staff on hand to do the chores cooking and laundry you’re free to relax.
This has to be the most exciting way to explore Hwange’s wilderness and wildlife. An area which is famed for it large populations of elephant and lion.
General fitness… you should be able to cover a distance of 15-20 kms a day, split between two or three walks. Walks take place when it’s cooler, in the early morning and late afternoon.
