History and Wildlife Spectacular – Zimbabwe

View the complete new-style digital itinerary here!

Welcome to this incredible Zimbabwe Safari!

You will begin in Victoria Falls for your chance to see this incredible natural wonder of the world along with many other activities available to keep you entertained. You can also enjoy the lovely lodge and chill by the pool which will be a great way to cool off.

Next is Hwange, Zimbabwe’s largest game park. Its sheer size means that its scenery, vegetation and game vary hugely, ranging from the semi desert scrub on the edge of the Kalahari in the south, to forests, granite hills and valleys of mopane woodlands in the north. The national park is home to over 100 mammal species, including lion, leopard and is known for its large population of elephant.

You will carry on to Matobo National Park and the stunning Amalinda Lodge. This area is known for striking  granite scenery, the chance to see and track rhino on foot and fascinating historical landmarks. Amalinda is a beautiful luxury lodge set into the rocks with a gorgeous rock swimming pool we are sure you will love!

A night in Masvingo will give you the chance to see the Great Zimbabwe ruins and finally you will end in Gonarezhou. This remote park is Zimbabwe’s second largest and offers relative exclusivity and a truly wild and wonderful safari experience.

Check the price and what is included and excluded – for high season travel this is an unmatched offer!

Enjoy dreaming of Africa and I hope to turn your dreams into reality!


Day 1 – 2

You will fly into Victoria Falls Airport where you will be met at international arrivals by the transfer company who will have your name on a sign. They will transfer you to the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge.

This is a lovely lodge set on a concession just outside town, the main lodge looks over a waterhole. There are many activities available in the falls and we are happy to provide details and book these. You do not need a guide to see the falls as the paths are clear and well signposted but we are happy to provide one for you if you prefer. Lunch at The Lookout Cafe is a lovely way to end as it has stunning views of the gorge.

We also recommend a helicopter flight over the falls, sunset cruise and the canopy tour or gorge swing are great fun too.



Day 3 – 5

Today after breakfast you will be collected and transferred to Victoria Falls Airport for your short flight to Hwange where you will be met and  transferred on a game drive to Khulu.

The lodge is on a private concession adjacent to Hwange National Park but there are no fences so game is free to move between them. Here you have activities included such as walks and game drives on the concession or into the park. There is also a waterhole in front of camp that will be popular with game at this dry time of year.



Day 6 – 8

Today you will have a transfer of 2.5/3 hours to Amalinda Lodge. Here you are able to go on guided walks, hikes through the granite kopjes, see rock paintings, Cecil Rhodes grave and rhino tracking into the national park.


Day 9

Today you will have a transfer of about 3 hours to Masvingo where you can see the ruins and enjoy a night at a lovely lake view resort.


Day 10 – 12

Today you will have a transfer of about 4 hours to Gonarezhou. Chilo is set up on the gorge with beautiful views of the river and park beyond, the game can be excellent and you are able to explore the park on foot or by game drive vehicle. You can opt to do a village visit to see some of the community projects in the area. We highly recommend a day trip to see the stunning Chilojo Cliffs, a sundowner on the river bed is the perfect end to a day.


Day 13

Sadly your final day has arrived and you will have a transfer to Buffalo Range Airport to check in for your international flight to Johannesburg.
