Itinerary

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.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Lorraine (UK)
Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Roger (UK)
An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.
