Zimbabwe Explorer


7 DAYS/ 6 NIGHTS GUIDED SAFARI WITH POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS

This specialised safari is perfect for those with a sense of adventure. We will start off in Victoria Falls which is Zimbabwe's main tourist attraction. Then we will spend a few days on a camping/lodge combination in Hwange National Park - one of Africa's forgotten game parks. What makes this a special safari is that we will spend a couple of nights camping at some of the best waterholes in Hwange. For this reason we have to book well in advance. From here we either return to Victoria Falls or do an extension to Mana Pools National Park, Lake Kariba or an additional night in Victoria Falls.

Victoria Falls

DAY 1: Victoria Falls

After meeting you at the airport you will be transferred to the lodge or hotel in Victoria Falls for lunch and to freshen up. After an hour or two to relax and enjoy the view over the Zambezi River or nearby waterhole, we will visit the famous Victoria Falls. On our return we will do an afternoon boat cruise on the Zambezi River. What better way to welcome you to Zimbabwe than with a sunset over the mighty Zambezi.

Hwange National Park

DAY 2-5: Hwange National Park

After a leisurely breakfast we will drive south to Hwange National Park. After 2 hours we will be in the park and the game viewing will begin. We will spend the next four days camping at different waterholes across the park. With no permanent rivers flowing through Hwange, the game depends on the waterholes for survival

An additional bonus is that we will be the only people camping at the sites every night. Hwange is famous for the big number of elephants and buffalo that are often found at the waterholes. Other game often seen drinking here are giraffe, zebra, blue wildebeest, kudu, impala, warthog, sable, roan, waterbuck and eland. Predators like lion, wild dog, leopard, cheetah and hyena often drink during the night or early in the morning which gives a great opportunity to see them before other tourists arrive from the main camps.

Hwange Safari Lodge

DAY 6: Hwange Safari Lodge

After 4 nights in the bush we will spend our final night in Hwange at Hwange Safari Lodge just outside the park. The lodge has a beautiful setting overlooking a very popular waterhole which is frequented by elephant, lion, wild dog, zebra, sable, kudu, buffalo, warthog and impala. What better way to say goodbye to Hwange that to sit with sun-downer drink enjoying the scenery in front of you and a final farewell dinner. After 4 nights in tents everyone will enjoy sleeping in a bed.

DAY 7: Departure

After a leisurely breakfast we will make our way back to Victoria Falls for your flight home or continue our safari with one of the possible extensions or off to another Southern African destination.

Possible extensions:
Mana Pools National Park:

Why not continue the safari with an additional 4 nights on a camping safari in Mana Pools? Mana is one of the best game viewing destinations in Africa with its beautiful setting in the Zambezi valley and is known for elephant, buffalo, hippo and lion sightings. All the general game is present in great numbers.

Lake Kariba Houseboat:

Why not spend a couple of nights on a houseboat on Lake Kariba. Besides game viewing you can also try your hand in trying to catch the legendary tiger fish of the Zambezi. It's a great way to unwind and relax after a week in the bush.

An additional night in Victoria Falls:

'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - The Smoke that Thunders. It is one of the most beautiful and most majestic waterfalls in the world and it is not difficult to see why the Victoria Falls are one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. The falls are Zimbabwe's prime tourist attraction and no trip to Southern Africa is complete without spending a few days here. Besides visiting the falls other activities in and around Victoria Falls include:

  • Scenic helicopter flights
  • Bungee jumping & Bridge swinging
  • Game drives
  • Bird watching
  • White water rafting
  • Elephant back safaris
  • Walking with lions
  • Golf
  • Jet boats
  • Fishing etc. 

Victoria Falls is the perfect destination from where to start or finish a safari
