Day 1-2: Victoria Falls (1xB, 1x D)

This way you can recover from your trip and relax at the lodge or you can explore the village. On day two we recommend you visit the majestic Victoria Falls in the morning. You can walk through the park and admire the waterfalls from different vantage points. Or how about a spectacular helicopter flight over the falls? At the end of the afternoon you will make a beautiful sunset cruise on the Zambezi river. You can watch the sun go down while enjoying a drink.

After breakfast it’s time to leave Victoria Falls behind and travel to your next destination; Lake Kariba. Your accommodation is located on the shores of Lake Kariba. This lake is no less than 220 km long and in some places 30 km wide. No wonder that this is also called an ‘inland sea’! You have the rest of day three at your leisure.

Day 5-8: Lake Kariba – Hwange National Park (4x B, 4x L, 4x D)
You leave Lake Kariba and drive to the north of Hwange National Park. This is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe and lies in the west of the country on the road between the famous Victoria Falls and Bulawayo, near the town of Dete. The park has an area of 14,600 km² and there is a network of 480 km of paths that can be walked almost all year round (some parts except for heavy rainfall).

The coming days are all about game activities. Hwange is particularly known for the large groups of elephants, buffalo, zebras and giraffes that live there. All endangered species from Zimbabwe are found in the park; gemsboks and brown hyenas in reasonable numbers and the number of wild dogs in the park is one of the largest in Africa. The landscape varies from desert sand on the western edge that borders the Kalahari to forest field and grassland and in a number of places granite rocks and boulders. You stay two nights in the north of the park and two nights in the south of the park.

Day 9-10: Hwange National Park – Matopos National Park (2x B, 2x L, 2x D)
The following special national park is on the program: Matopos National Park. The National Park is part of the Matobo (or Matopos) Hills that occupy an area of no less than 3100 km². The area was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003 because of the unique granite rock formations that sometimes seem to balance, shallow caves where bushman rock art can be found and a variety of flora and fauna. The highest point in these hills is Gulati with a top of 1549 meters. The founder of Rhodesia (the country that we now know as Zimbabwe), Cecile Rhodes, is buried in his favorite place: World’s View. A simple memorial stone marks his grave from where one has a beautiful view of “his” beloved country. Today the area is still of great spiritual value for the local tribes such as the Ndebele.

On day 10, a special activity is scheduled in the morning, because you will look for rhinos and visit the grave of Cecil Rhodes. Along the way you enjoy a game drive again.
