Join the fun for the 6 days 5 nights stay in Hwange national park and Chobe National Park for that authentic African Safari. Also enjoy the walk in the Rains forest as you tour the Magnificent Victoria Falls.
DAY ONE – Arrival and Transfer to Hwange National Park – Night Game Drive
Upon arrival at the Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by your guide/driver and transferred to Hwange Safari lodge – only two hours’ drive in tarred roads.
After check-in we will embark on a late afternoon game drive in the Hwange Safari Lodge estate which borders the Hwange national park – there are no fences between the main park and this estate.
This is a three hours’ drive which extends well into the night and there are good chances of encountering the big cats. Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge
DAY TWO – Safari in the Hwange National Park
After breakfast, your guide will pick you up for the full day safari in the Hwange National park using the Main Camp gate. Mineral water, soft drinks, picnic lunch and lots of refreshments will be provided and we use any one of the many viewing platforms that dot the park for lunches. We will be back at the lodge at around 16H00.
The elephants of Hwange are world famous and the Park’s elephant population is one of the largest in the world. The park is home to over 65 000 elephants who in the dry season dominate all the water points in the afternoons.
Other animals that can be seen in the park are lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, impala, kudu, sable, eland, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, baboon, warthog and a lot more. Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge
DAY THREE – Safaris in the Hwange National Park
Hwange provides a safari experience to rival the great parks of East Africa – the Serengeti and Masai Mara – but without the crowds.
You will have another fun-filled day in the park – now looking for your favourite animal or bird and even ignoring the other now common species.
On a good day, you may even return to the lodge earlier as you will have seen all there is to be seen. Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge
DAY FOUR – Road Transfer from Hwange National Park to Victoria Falls
After Breakfast transfer, you will be transferred to Victoria Falls in air-conditioned vans – a two hours trip.
After check-in, we will head to the Victoria Falls, via the big baobab tree for the guided tour. The walk on this 2KM stretch lasts for about two hours and, nothing prepares the visitor for the heart-stopping experience, the sight, the sound, the smell and the humbling feeling that here is, without doubt, Nature`s Master Pierce. Mineral water and return transfers are included
We will pass by the Open Curio Markets for your souvenir shopping. At 16H00 you will be transferred to the jetty for the relaxing Zambezi River sunset cruise. Relax with a sun-downer and snacks as you gaze out onto the banks of the river.
Have your camera ready to capture one of the amazing sunsets in Africa. This is a two hours boat trip with all drinks, snacks and returns transfers. Expect to be back at the Hotel at about 19H00. Overnight at the Elephant Hills Resort B/B
DAY FIVE – Chobe National Park
On this day you will be collected from your hotel at 0730 hours for the full day safari in the Chobe National park in Botswana. You do not have to wait until we cross the border into Botswana to start enjoying the game viewing as we will be driving through the Zambezi National Park for 70 km to the Botswana border.
Our safari starts with a Game Boat Cruise on the Chobe River. This will be three hours of game viewing from the boat. You will have a buffet lunch, at the four-star Chobe Safari Lodge.
After lunch it will be time to take to the Chobe National Park in custom made 4×4 safari vehicles for the three-hour afternoon game drive. We will visit the upper Chobe River part that is not accessible by boats.
This is where we get to see the shy predators (lions, hyena, cheetah and sometimes leopards) and at times on their kills.
We will leave the park at about 1630hrs for the drive back to Victoria Falls in comfortably air-conditioned minibuses. Own Dinner Arrangements
