Experience the best of the region's two National Parks: the Chobe and Hwange, and the Victoria Falls. Very good chance of encountering the Big 5 on this trip and a beautiful sunset on the Zambezi River sunset cruise. 

DAY 01

Arrival and Transfer to Hwange National Park - Night Game Drive

  • Upon arrival at the Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by your guide/driver and transferred to Hwange Safari lodge - only two hours’ drive in tarred roads.

  • After check-in, embark on a late afternoon game drive in the Hwange Safari Lodge estate which borders the Hwange National Park – there are no fences between the main park and this estate. This is a three hours’ drive which extends well into the night and there are good chances of encountering the big cats.

Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge

DAY 02

Safari in the Hwange National Park

  • After breakfast, your guide will pick you up for the full day safari in the Hwange National Park using the Main Camp gate. Mineral water, soft drinks, picnic lunch and lots of refreshments will be provided and you use any one of the many viewing platforms that dot the park for lunches. The elephants of Hwange are world-famous and the park's elephant population is one of the largest in the world. The park is home to over 65,000 elephants who in the dry season dominate all the water points in the afternoons. Other animals that can be seen in the park are lions, leopards, cheetahs, rhinos, buffalos, impalas, kudus, sables, elands, waterbucks, zebras, giraffes, baboons, warthogs and a lot more.

  • Be back at the lodge at around 16H00.

Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge

DAY 03

Safaris in the Hwange National Park

  • Hwange provides a safari experience to rival the great parks of East Africa - the Serengeti and Masai Mara - but without the crowds. You will have another fun-filled day in the park –now looking for your favourite animal or bird and even ignoring the other now common species. On a good day, you may even return to the lodge earlier as you will have seen all there is to be seen.

Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge

DAY 04

Road Transfer from Hwange National Park to Victoria Falls

  • After breakfast, you will be transferred to Victoria Falls in air-conditioned vans – a two hours trip.

  • After check-in, head to the Victoria Falls, via the big baobab tree for the guided tour. The walk on this 2 km stretch lasts for about two hours and, nothing prepares the visitor for the heart-stopping experience, the sight, the sound, the smell and the humbling feeling that here is, without doubt, Nature`s Master Pierce. Mineral water and return transfers are included.

  • Pass by the Open Curio Markets for your souvenir shopping.

  • At 16H00, you will be transferred to the jetty for the relaxing Zambezi River sunset cruise. Relax with a sun-downer and snacks as you gaze out onto the banks of the river. Have your camera ready to capture one of the amazing sunsets in Africa. This is a two hours boat trip with all drinks, snacks and return transfers. 

  • Expect to be back at the Hotel at about 19H00.

Overnight at the Elephant Hills Resort B/B

DAY 05

Full day Chobe National Park Safari

  • On this day, you will be collected from your hotel at 0730 hours for the full day safari in the Chobe National Park in Botswana. You do not have to wait until crossing the border into Botswana to start enjoying the game viewing as you will be driving through the Zambezi National Park for 70 km to the Botswana border.

  • Start the safari with a Game Boat Cruise on the Chobe River. This will be three hours of game viewing from the boat. You will have a buffet lunch at the four-star Chobe Safari Lodge. 

  • After lunch, it will be time to take to the Chobe National Park in custom made 4x4 safari vehicles for the three hour afternoon game drive. Visit the upper Chobe River part that is not accessible by boats. This is where you get to see the shy predators (lions, hyena, cheetah and sometimes leopards) and at times on their kills.

  • Leave the park at about 1630hrs for the drive back to Victoria Falls in comfortable air-conditioned minibuses.
