■ The camps are comfortable with traditional large walk in tents with bush bathrooms en-suite and proper beds and bedding.
■ All camp chores, food preparations and laundry service are carried out by experienced camp staff.
■ The transport is by open game viewing vehicle and each safari is taken by Leon Varley and a traditional Matabele tracker. The guide is fully licensed armed and carries a well stocked first aid kit and satellite phone. The tracker carries a back up weapon and extra water.
■ Walks are taken in the morning after an early breakfast and late afternoon when it is cooler and participants must be fit enough to be able to cover 15 -20 kms in a day split into two or three separate walks.
Back Packing Safari (not backed up by a vehicle - walking in the Sinamatella area - usually 10 - 12 kms / day
■ This is the most scenic part of Hwange with numerous springs, including hot water ones, low hills, rugged kopjies, watercourses, water holes and mineral licks.
■ The attraction for backpacking this part of the park is the ability to overnight in specific places such as springs, water holes and mineral licks that we have only been able to visit by foot during the day.
■ Participants in a backpacking safari will need to provide their own backpacks, sleeping bags and mats; they need to be fit enough to backpack for 3 - 4 hours a day with a 7-10 kg pack as well as 2- 3 hours of unencumbered walking as day. Tentage and supplies will be provided by the safari company and will be of the best quality space and weight will allow.
■ Each safari will be led by a professional guide and a tracker and will be accompanied by a back up crew who will carry out all the camp chores, except erecting tents, and will do most of the heavy carrying.
