Getting Down to Specifics- Zimbabwe Questions?

Jump to last reply

I think we are extremely close but would like a little input before we completely lock in our plans.

1 night Vic Falls
3 nights Somalisa Hwange
3 nights Rhino Camp
4 nights Little Vundu
3 nights Chitake Springs

So here are the questions- will three nights be enough time to really enjoy Hwange or would you add an additional night?

We are going to have a private guide in Mana Pools and hopefully in both Hwange and Rhino Camp. If we have to choose between Hwange and Rhino for a private guide( due to the budget) which do you think would be better? If we can not have fit it into the budget to have a private guide at Rhino, do you think it might be better to stay at Musango as Steve Edwards has such a good reputation as a guide there? We are also going to do a road transfer at the end and leave from Lusaka. Has anyone done this that has not stayed at Ruckomechi? Our flight will leave from Lusaka until 4:30 pm so if seems that should work and hopefully be a substantial savings from the crazy cost of the charter from Mana Pools to Harare. If anyone would like to share a plane on September 15th from Mana Pools that would work as well.

Any other thoughts, ideas or suggestions regarding the itinerary and the guiding?
