Trip Report 3-part Zimbabwe: Join Wild Dog Researcher, Walk Mana Pools, Canoe Zambezi

Jump to last reply

I went late Aug, early Sept.

These 3 activities in Zimbabwe combined for a diverse and exciting safari.

Part was solo--Joining the wild dog researcher and staying at Chishakwe Ranch in Save Valley for 4 nights.

Part was with 2 friends--Mana Pools floodplain walk and Chitake walk/sit with Doug MacDonald for 6 nights total.

Part was a group participation canoe camping trip, but turned into a solo trip when no one else signed up--Natureways Mopane Canoe trip through Mana Pools, Sapi, and Chewore for 3 nights.

All parts were booked through Doug MacDonald Safaris to Africa since he was guiding the walking parts. All parts were wonderful.

I'm communicating with Doug on a couple more trips planned and/or guided by him.

The linked reports have all the details and photos. The Mana Pools one is even in haiku form for something different. I highly recommend all 3 parts to anyone considering a nature-based visit to Zimbabwe.

Hope to see you in Zim!
