Explore Hwange from our exclusive, intimate seasonal bush camp location in the heart of the Sinamatella region. Walking in Hwange is the perfect opportunity to explore the bush and track big game through rolling wilderness. Known as 'Zimbabwe’s Kruger', the wildlife viewing is just as good as it's namesake but without the crowds! It's Hwange’s rather forgotten nature which makes it such an appealing and special place to explore and experience the magic of this special wilderness.

Some background on Leon Varley:

Leon Varley formed Backpackers Africa in 1986 pioneering walking trails in Chizarira, Kazuma and Zambezi National Parks.

Leon has been a fully qualified guide for 28 years and was among the first three guides to qualify in the post independence period. This was the first time guides had to qualify for the full license after serving an apprenticeship and be tested in a series of written and practical exams.

Leon, married to Mags, with a son and two daughters, was brought up on a farm in North Eastern Zimbabwe. Before starting Backpackers Africa he worked as an Army Tracker, Miner, Prospector, Farmer, Journalist, Forestry Game Ranger and Tsetse Control Officer. It was while working in Chizarira National Park as a tsetse control officer in 1980 that he first formulated the idea of a walking safari operation. This area has always remained a favourite and to date he has personally led over 350 safaris there.

He believes that the only way to truly see Africa is on foot: "If you're not going to walk it, stay at home and watch it on TV".

This safari can be extended to 4 nights 5 days.
