ACTION PACKED VIC FALLS & HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

Victoria Falls – the adventure capital of Africa and your home for the first three nights of this memorable Zimbabwe trip. Yet you will escape the bustling crowds of the falls by staying 10km downstream at the peaceful Batoka Gorge – 200m above the crashing Zambezi River. A complimentary shuttle transports you to the Vic Falls in the morning and back in the afternoon.

Enjoy a range of adventure activities at falls, including bungee jumping, white river rafting, helicopter flips and cruises on the Zambezi. Wander around the town of Victoria Falls, enjoy leisurely lunches and national park tours.

For the quieter at hear, there’s a tour of the falls, school tour and visit to the local village. Watch a traditional dance display or walk along the gorge back the lodge before sundowners with one of the best views in southern Africa or a sunset cruise on the quieter part of the Zambezi.

An exciting transfer will take you to the edge of the Hwange National Park where you’ll stay on the beautiful Ngamo Plains. At 14500sqkm, Hwange National Park is one of Africa’s great parks and home to 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 species of birds. Hwange is elephant country and much of the game viewing relates to magnificent opportunities to view these, the largest land mammals, in a completely wild state.

The lodge itself is in an exclusive 5000-acre portion of the Ngamo forest, where you can go on beautiful guided walks. Every day will be filled with game drives, night drives, and afternoons spent beside the waterhole at the camp.

Get a chance to join in the conservation projects going in the park on one of the reserve’s pump runs and drive from pan to pan, marveling at the African wildlife. Sundowners in the wild, gourmet meals under the stars and the most impressive sunrises will fill your days with wonder.
