I have just had confirmation of my bookings for next year September in Hwange & Mana Pools. Please be aware that there are new prices and they are available for download from the official Zim Parks web site. What is not communicated and was not implemented on my initial booking pro forma, is that SADC residents get a 30% discount and if you stay for longer than 7 consecutive nights in any park you get a 40% discount on your total bill.
Thanks campervan. We are not towing anything. Just a roof rack with the fuel and other goodies on it.
We went to Hwange in 2014. It was great. Robins Camp was just an overnight stop over on the last night. We also stayed over at Guvalala platform, Jambili and Ngweshla. The east is definitly more attractive.
We have booked in at the public camps in both parks but things may change when we get there. We have two nights at Chitake Springs.
I am interested in the shortcut via the power lines? We are planning to start in Hwange, 5 nights, then one night each at Masuma, Chizarira National Park, Matusadona National Park and then on to Kariba for a houseboat cruize, one or two nights. Then Mana Pools, Nyamepi (5 nights) and Chitake Springs 2 nights.
Thanks Campervan. Map below of Matusadona.
If you have any co-ordinates it would be appreciated. Hwange to Mana route plan below:
Also, I have not booked at Chizarira nor at Matusadona. Can one do a walk in at these parks...i.e. can they accept money at the gate/reception?
Thanks Edge. I see some of the trip reports on the 4x4community refer to a shorter exit road to the north east. It is marked as the prefered route with signes and is not on T4A. I will ask Bessie Brand why not?
This is what we did on Saturday:
Hi Edge. Unfortunately it is not a hot link, I don't know how to do that. Just copy the text below..ctrl+c and, in a new tab, paste it in the field top left...ctrl+v...then press enter.
Nie camping nie maar dit is die laas Saterdag pilots almal bymekaar. Waneer ons cross country vlieg dan slaap ons onder die vlerk....in daai kleeeeein tentjie.
