This short but iconic safari delivers two of Zimbabwe’s most popular destinations – 2 days at Victoria Falls and 4 days at Hwange National Park, with a short flight in-between. You will be met on arrival in Zimbabwe by one of our representatives and escorted to your local flight, and again at the end of your safari you will be met at your local flight and escorted to your departure flight or other arrangements.
Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River is one of Africa’s most iconic destinations and deservedly on many bucket lists. That awe-inspiring vertical drop of 108m into the chasm below, as well as the mist spray curtain during full flood that can be seen and heard from afar (its local name is ‘Mosi-oa- Tunya’, which means ‘the smoke that thunders’), make for a truly unforgettable experience. Just wandering the streets of this quaint town is a special experience as you negotiate for souvenirs, dodge warthogs (and elephants!), hang out with locals and sample a range of restaurants and bars.
Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It’s also an adventure centre of note. You could stay for ages and enjoy a different activity every day, from bungee jumping, gorge swinging and white water rafting, to helicopter and microlight flights (a.k.a the flight of angels), sunset boat and steam train cruises, horse riding, game drives, canoe trips, and so much more. Here is a detailed list of activities on offer.
During your stay on the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls, walk across the bridge and also visit the Zambian side, which offers an exhilarating walk across the ‘Knife-edge Bridge’, a close-up view of the ‘Boiling Pot’ (a scary whirlpool at the base of the falls) and, for the really adventurous, a dip in the famous ‘Devil’s Pool‘.
Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest national park at 15,000 km², and a favorite safari destination for many experienced bush lovers.
Game-viewing can be extremely rewarding, especially during the dry winter months from May to October. The park does feature the Big 5 (although rhino are seldom seen) and very large herds of buffalo and elephants. Lions are frequently seen, and visitors also enjoy regular sightings of cheetah, wild dog, roan and sable antelope. Night drives can be very rewarding, with good sightings of aardvark, aardwolf and pangolin.
Habitats include Kalahari scrub, teak and mopane woodlands, granite hills and salt pans – resulting in over 400 species of birds.
