Zimbabwe’s popularity as a travel destination has bounced back in the last few years and the country offers, in combination with Kruger and Botswana, a fantastic 2 weeks of camping travel in Southern Africa.
The ZB16 Johannesburg to Johannesburg circular route has the advantage of simple international flight plans, and a chance to see rhinos.
The ZB15 Johannesburg to Maun offers you the option to fly out Maun on day 15 and avoid the long drive back to Jo’burg.
Overnight 13 nights on safari we stay at designated campsites, in or bordering national parks and towns. Formal campsites have hot and cold showers, laundry facilities & telephones.
2 nights “camping wild” without fences in the Okavango. On these nights the crew will erect a bucket shower (with hot water off the fire) and a pit latrine (with seat!).
Meals 15 breakfasts, 13 lunches and 11 dinners will be provided by the Sunway crew, prepared at the vehicle and eaten around the camp fire or in the boma.
Transport we use custom-built Sunway Safari trucks with 12 forward facing seats; or (on 10% of tours) Mercedes Sprinter minibuses with 12 forward facing seats and air conditioning. For the game drives in Matobos, Hwange, Chobe and the transfer into the Okavango we use open 4WD vehicles with local guides.
Limited participation an essential part of your safari is participation. From putting up your tent to packing the truck in the morning – it’s all part of your adventure. Your tour leaders will do all the meal preparation, but we do ask the clients to help (on rotation) with the washing up. Please note that although Sunway has all the correct paperwork the Beitbridge border crossing into Zimbabwe can take a long time, which can make for a particularly long day.
