Days 1 – 3: In History’s Footsteps

Arrive at Bulawayo Airport & transfer to Camp Amalinda, set next to Matobo National Park for 3 nights on a full board basis. Historical & cultural tours, game drives & rhino tracking.

This part of Zimbabwe resonates with history; great kings once ruled here, and it’s in the Matobo National Park that you’ll find the grave of colonialist and history-maker Cecil John Rhodes. Camp Amalinda sits in a private reserve adjoining the park, giving you unspoilt views and an intimate atmosphere as well as access to the main park for game drives and rhino tracking adventures. You’ll also be introduced to the region’s history by local guides who’ll show you ancient rock art and battle sites. The camp is very well-appointed and has a spa, swimming pool, sauna and steam room and even Wi-Fi.

Days 3 – 6: Heavyweight Hwange

Transfer by road to a private concession within the Hwange National Park & your accommodation, The Hide. Check in for 3 nights on a full board basis & enjoy game drives & guided walks.

Your Hwange accommodation couldn’t be better located. Set in an exclusive-use concession within the mighty Hwange National Park, The Hide overlooks a large and productive waterhole. Its eponymous photographic hide gives you amazing views of wildlife at water. The camp is consistently rated as one of Zimbabwe’s best safari camps and you’ll be in the hands of its excellent guides. Morning and afternoon game drives are balanced by spot-lit night drives and guided walks to deliver a comprehensive safari experience. Best during the dry season when animals concentrate around water, Hwange is also known for its predators and birdlife.

Days 7 – 8: Rumbling Thunder

Transfer by road from Hwange to Victoria Falls & Ilala Lodge, located within walking distance of the falls themselves. Check in for 2 nights on a bed & breakfast basis.

It’s a morning’s drive to Victoria Falls from Hwange and you’ll be checking into the ever-popular Ilala Lodge by lunchtime. It’s one of the longest-standing accommodations in the town of Victoria Falls and offers an unbeatable location just a 10 minute walk to the thundering waterfall itself. You have a full day to do as much or as little as you want – from white-water rafting to lazy sunset cruises. Staff at the lodge will be happy to help arrange bookings for you.

Days 9 – 11: Lakeside Luxury

Fly from Victoria Falls to Matusadona National Park & your accommodation, Changa Safari Camp. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis with game drives, boating & guided walks on offer.

You’ll leave the Zambezi River temporarily and rejoin it further downstream in the form of Lake Kariba. This vast water body is famous for its fishing and lazy sunsets, but there is a wild side to it too: Matusadona National Park, home to elephants, big cats, hippos and wild dogs. Changa Safari Camp is your accommodation. Set on the lakeshore within the park, Changa offers sensational views from its luxurious tented suites as well as access to game drives, boating safaris and guided walks. And there’s still plenty of time for fishing and lazy sunsets!

Day 12: The Journey Ends

Fly from Matusadona to Harare Airport for the end of the tour & your onward connection.

You’ll fly to Harare Airport after breakfast and connect with your onward connection.
