Zimbabwe: Adventure Series Safari



Adventure Series Concept

The Adventure Series Concept: this series of carefully crafted trips is designed to maximize value without compromising your safari experience. Gain an understanding of local culture - past, present & future - with village visits. Observe wildlife in its natural environment on daily game drives, walks and boat or canoe excursions, depending on what's offered by each lodge or camp. Some trips in this series are hosted by an expert naturalist who is backed up by top local guides. While the trip host/naturalist can provide added interpretation and insight into wildlife behavior, the local guides know their own backyard intimately and they understand what our clients are looking for so they are responsive to your needs. You will be well taken care of. Lodges are of a high quality and well-located. Savings are found by using road travel between locations and only using flights were absolutely necessary.
