VICTORIA FALLS, Zimbabwe
The largest waterfall in the world and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls should be on everyone’s southern Africa itinerary.
Fly to Victoria Falls where you’ll be transferred to the famous colonial-era Victoria Falls Hotel for a two-night stay. After your arrival, enjoy High Tea with an African twist as you sit out on the veranda overlooking the majestic waterfall. Spend an evening reliving Cecil Rhodes’ steam train dreams by eating dinner on the Rovos Rail, departing from Victoria Falls train station and crossing over the bridge with epic views of the falls. For a chance to get closer to the water, we can arrange a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River where you’ll have a sundowner to hand.
HWANGE NATIONAL PARK, Zimbabwe
Hwange is a fantastic national park where herds of elephants traverse the landscape, as well as being a prime spot for lion sightings.
Fly down to Hwange National Park for a three-night stay at Verney’s Camp, situated on the border of the savannah and overlooking a watering hole. This perfect location makes for incredible wildlife sightings on both morning and night game drives. Your guide will take you around the riverways and flood plains surrounding the camp with a good chance of sighting herds of elephants and large predators such as lions and leopards. Night drives allow you to spot smaller nocturnal animals as well as the thrill of witnessing a pride of lions on the hunt.
MANA POOLS NATIONAL PARK, Zimbabwe
A park known for consistent animal sightings; watch as elephants, hippos and crocodiles gather at sunrise around the riverbanks.
Finish your adventure by taking a flight to Mana Pools National Park. Here you’ll spend three nights at Little Ruckomechi, a beautiful camp set on the banks of the Lower Zambezi River. This location is considered to provide the best walking safaris in Africa, with frequent up-close sightings of elephant, zebra and buffalo. Take advantage of this prime spot along the Zambezi and set out on guided fishing trips – you might be lucky enough to catch an aggressive tigerfish. Walk in the footsteps of animals as you follow your guide on foot into the bush to track wildlife. Round up your trip with a return flight from Victoria Falls.
Jen & George
We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
