Request Help Planning Safari to Zimbabwe

Jump to last reply

Last year my husband, 18 year old daughter and I went on a 3 week private safari to Tanzania, and as a result we fell in love with Africa. Now we want to explore Zimbabwe. We're thinking of going for 2-3 weeks in August 2013. We are nature, wildlife and adventure lovers, so we were thinking of Hwange...possibly staying at Somalisa Camp. Also thinking of going to Matusadona NP...possibly staying at Musango or Rhino Camps. And naturally we want to visit Mana Pools and stay at Goliaths Camp. A short visit to Victoria Falls would also be included (we haven't decided where to stay there).

When we went to Tanzania we used a local Tanzanian safari operator to help organize everything. Does anyone have any recommendations as to good safari operators to help plan our trip to Zimbabwe? Any recommendations will be appreciated. Naturally, we'd prefer to use a safari operator based in Zimbabwe. Are there substantial cost savings if we do all the organizing and bookings ourselves without the use of a safari operator?

We also hope to combine this trip with a stop in Cape Town in order to go cage diving with great white sharks.
