Day 1: Victoria Falls

On arrival into Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the afternoon may be spent at leisure enjoying one of the many activities available in Victoria Falls. This evening you will meet your guide and the rest of your group at the lodge at 18h00 for your pre-departure meeting.

Day 2: Victoria Falls

Today you will have at leisure to explore Victoria Falls, the town and all of its unique offerings, from adventure activities to cultural experiences. Your guide will take you on a tour of the mighty Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. In the afternoon we embark on a relaxing sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River, basking in the afterglow of the day.

Day 3: Lake Kariba

Our journey today brings us to the shores of Lake Kariba. It is one of the world’s largest man-made lakes and a place of outstanding beauty.  At over 220 km long and 30 km at its widest point it is no wonder it is referred to as an inland sea! The lake is nested in mountains, guarded by enormous reserves of game and made beautiful and savage by sun and storm, as well as by earth and water.  After lunch we arrive at Masumu River Lodge, which is in a spectacular location with magnificent views over the islands and waters of Lake Kariba’s western side.

Day 4: Lake Kariba

Spend the day relaxing at the pool, or option to partake in many of the optional activities. Afternoon sunset cruise on Lake Kariba with game-viewing opportunities.

Day 5 - 6: Hwange

This morning we make our way to the Northern Section of Hwange National Park. Over the following two days, we will have plenty of time to explore this vast wilderness on game drives. Hwange National Park is one of Africa’s finest havens for wildlife and is home to great herds of elephant, buffalo, and zebra and has a very large concentration of giraffe. It is also home to many predators and endangered species plus varied birdlife. The whole of the next day is spent exploring this magnificent area on a full day game drive in Hwange National Park.

Day 7 - 8: Hwange

Today we head off to our lodge situated in a private concession near Hwange National Park. On the next day we will visit the Painted Dog Conservation Centre to witness the work that is done to protect this endangered species. If time allows, you can partake in an open vehicle game drive on the concession in the afternoon.

Day 9 - 10: Matabeleland South Province

After breakfast we travel southwards to the majestic Matobo Hills, an area of exquisite beauty, steeped in tribal history, ancient mystery and dramatic rock landscapes. The national park has been given UNESCO World Heritage status and is home to both white and black rhinoceros, sable antelope and the world’s densest population of leopard. Birdlife is prolific and includes the highest concentration of black eagles in the world. Once the home of the San (Bushman), this area contains the richest source of the rock art found anywhere. Not only is it here that the Ndebele people buried their great king, Mzilikazi, but Cecil John Rhodes was also laid to rest on the “Hill of the Benevolent Spirit” or “World’s View” as named by him. We spend the next day in the national park, starting our morning with tracking rhino spoor by vehicle and foot. In the afternoon we further explore the scenery and wildlife of the park on game drives, ending with a visit to Rhodes’ grave.

Day 11: Masvingo

This morning we drive to the Great Zimbabwe Ruins located close to Masvingo.  According to an age-old legend the ruins were built to replicate the palace of the Queen of Sheba in Jerusalem, and are a unique testimony to the Bantu civilization of the Shona between the 11th and 15th centuries. They cover an area of 1800 acres and are some of the oldest and largest structures located in Southern Africa. We have the opportunity to explore these ancient ruins, before checking in to our accommodation for the night.

Day 12

Today we make our way to Pamuzinda Safari Lodge, located just an hour outside of Harare. Once you have arrived, you will have the choice of a game drive, game walk or, for the more adventurous, a horse back safari.

Departure Day

Our safari ends after breakfast. You will be transferred to Harare International Airport in time for your departure flight. We hope to welcome you again one day on another of our African adventures!
