Upon arrival at Victoria Falls airport you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure.
A short drive today takes you to Hwange National Park, located in the northwest corner of Zimbabwe, approximately on hour south of Victoria Falls. This former royal hunting ground was named after a local Nhanzwa chief and it is the largest Park in Zimbabwe. It is an area of great beauty, comprising of salt pans, acacia scrub and wide grassy plains, supporting great herds of buffalo and elephant, all the Big Five and excellent birding. The next 2 days are spent game driving here with night drives being a highlight. There are also opportunities to do walking safaris or just relax by the pool.
Leaving Zimbabwe behind, journey into Botswana and the Chobe area. Viewing game is possible in various forms including game drives, bush walks, night drives and boat safaris. The Chobe National Park is to the north of the country and is home to the largest elephant herds in the world. This Park boasts four distinctly different eco systems: serondela with its lush plains and dense forests in the Chobe River area to the northeast, the Savute Marsh in the west and the Linyanti Swamps in the northwest, with the hot, dry hinterland in between. 2 days are spent exploring this amazing area.
We take you back to Victoria Falls where you embark on a 2 hour tour of the falls and the surrounding area. You’ll walk through the rainforest, learn the history of the Falls and get soaked in the massive spray. Raincoats and protective bags are provided. Victoria Falls reaches its zenith in about May each year. It is a truly awe-inspiring experience - the sight, the sound, the smell and the humbling feeling that here indeed is nature's supreme masterpiece. No photograph can begin to depict the reality and nothing prepares you for your first sight.
We will transfer you to Victoria Falls airport in time for your departure flight.
