ADRENALIN AT VIC FALLS & GAME IN HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

Embark on one of the most stylish and luxurious ways to explore Africa – by flying charter plains and staying in exclusive camps. Visit two of Zimbabwe’s most epic destinations – Victoria Falls and Hwange National Park.
The Victoria Falls, also known as “The smoke that thunders” remains one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world. Enjoy a helicopter flip or elephant back safari after a tour of this incredible sheet of falling water. Have lunch 200m above the crashing Zambezi River on the edge of the Batoka Gorge.

Experience all of this excitement without staying in the bustle. Your lodge is situated away from the Vic Falls at a private tented camp on the Zambezi River inside the Zambezi National Park. Here you can enjoy game drives and riverside picnics to your heart’s content or go canoeing, fishing, sundowner cruise at the camp, and a village visit to Sidobe.

Your next stop is Hwange National Park, one of the greatest parks of Zimbabwe where your lodge is strategically placed to explore the remote and unspoiled southeastern portion of the park. Game drives take you from Pan to Pan, weaving your way between the throngs of jostling elephant that come pouring in for the fresh water. The park is, indeed, known for its massive elephant populations.

In Hwange you’ll also get to partake in hands on conservation. The pump runs, as they are called, combine game viewing in remote areas of the park with practical hands-on conservation. Guests can assist their guide with day-to-day maintenance at the borehole pumps, which are the heartbeat of Hwange National Park and its wildlife.

The camp where you’ll be staying will treat you with a champagne brunch beside a pan, banquet dinner under a massive camelthorn tree and private bush dinners in secret locations. Watch the sun rise from your private deck and enjoy endless views across this incredible reserve. Getting close up to Africa’s pristine wildlife, will be an experience never to be forgotten.

ACCOMMODATION

While in the Zambezi National Park, guests will stay in a tented lodge situated within the western area of the park, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, upstream of the Victoria Falls.

The eight luxury tents have a king-sized bed or two twins, a private splash pool and deck overlooking the river below. The main camp area includes dining room, lounge and bar with shaded outdoor deck for alfresco dining experiences.

The forest villas are 82sqm each in size and feature sturdy stonewalls. There is an outdoor maisonette with hammocks – ideal for a siesta or a night ‘under the stars’. The large bedroom and lounge area have sliding glass doors, overhead fans and a fireplace.
