ITINERARY – EXPERIENCE ZIMBABWE SAFARI: Victoria Falls – Hwange National Park – Matobo National Park
DAY 1 & 2:
Victoria Falls

You will be met at Victoria Falls Airport by the transfer company who will have your name on a sign board and be waiting in the arrivals area. You will be transferred to your accommodation. There are many activities available in the area of the falls and we are happy to provide details and book these. We recommend a sunset cruise, helicopter flight over the falls and a canopy tour or gorge swing. You do not need a guide to see the falls as the paths are clear and well signposted, however if you prefer we can arrange one for you.
Resting on the southern banks of the Zambezi River at the western end of the eponymous falls, this popular tourist town is compact enough to walk around and makes an ideal base for travellers exploring the seventh wonder of the world, the unfathomably vast Victoria Falls. About two-thirds of the falls can be viewed from the Zimbabwean side and, while the falls are undoubtedly the star attraction, the area provides both adventure seekers and sightseers with plenty of opportunities to warrant a longer stay. Popular activities include scenic flights over the falls in helicopters or microlights, bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, white-water rafting (seasonal), and day trips to Chobe National Park. The town itself offers some excellent accommodation and restaurant options as well as an eclectic variety of African curios and authentic art sold by friendly Zimbabwean locals who are wonderfully welcoming and eager to help you enjoy your stay.

DAY 3 & 4:
Hwange National Park

Today you will be collected from your accommodation and transferred 2 and a half hours to Hwange National Park, your safari home for the next two nights. Hwange is a unique national park offering diverse environments which in turn bring a variety of wildlife and bird life. You are able to explore this park by game vehicle or on foot with expert guides.
Situated in western Zimbabwe, the Hwange National Park is the country’s biggest reserve, home to a profusion of wildlife, including Giraffe, Lion, Plains Zebra and approximately 40 000 African Elephants. It provides a sanctuary for all the country’s endangered species, including a population of African Wild Dogs thought to be among the most sizeable surviving groups on the continent. The park’s magnificent terrain ranges from desert dunes, savannah lands and mopane woodlands to rocky outcrops and sparse forests. Visitors can look forward to game drives, guided walks or horse riding safaris. Other highlights include the Bumbusi National Monument and the Nyamandhlovu Pan.

DAY 5 & 6:
Matobo National Park

Today you will have a transfer of 2 and a half hours to picturesque Matobo National Park where you will spend the next two nights. Here you are able to go on guided walks, hikes through the granite kopjes, see rock paintings, Cecil Rhodes’ grave and do rhino tracking.
Idyllically located in the spectacular Matobo Hills, the renowned Matobo National Park is known for its rich human history, its remarkably diverse flora and fauna and its magnificent rugged terrain. This unspoiled natural wilderness features a range of massive red-tinged granite boulders interspersed with gorgeous wooded valleys making it a dream destination for hikers, climbers and nature lovers alike. The reserve is compact, easily accessible and is home to an impressive range of African wildlife including the highly endangered Black and White Rhinoceros, Plains Zebra, Common Wildebeest, Giraffe, Cheetah, Hippopotamus, Common Warthog and Nile Crocodile as well as Africa’s largest concentration of Leopard and Verreaux’s Eagles.
