A Majestic Beginning at Victoria Falls

  • Our adventure begins at the breathtaking Victoria Falls, a place where the Zambezi River plunges dramatically into a chasm, creating a natural spectacle like no other. Here, we’ll indulge in the luxury of the Palm River Hotel, nestled along the serene banks of the iconic river. Get ready to immerse yourself in the beauty and thrill of Africa right from the start!

Safari Highlights:

  • Hwange National Park: Bigger than the Serengeti but with far lower visitor numbers, it is likely we will spend most of our safari without seeing other vehicles except those from the lodge you are staying at—an exclusive experience indeed! Hwange is home to approximately 46 000 elephants – there are more elephants than guests visiting Hwange National Park in a year! It is also one of the best parks in Africa for diversity of wildlife with populations of sable, cheetah, wild dog, and lion. We will stay for 3 nights at my favourite camp in Africa – Bomani Tented Lodge by Imvelo Safari Lodges
  • Lake Kariba: The world’s largest man-made lake on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Lake Kariba attracts large numbers of elephants and other big game species. The presence of water draws these animals to the lake’s shores, and witnessing herds of elephants gathering near the water’s edge or bathing in the shallows of the lake is something you’ll never forget. There are also over 400 species of birds and tiger fishing on Lake Kariba is a must-do. We will stay for 4 nights at Musango – a stunning island camp run by a living legend among guides, Steve Edwards
  • Visit community projects and schools helped by both camps that are directly supported by your safari spend and learn just how vital the assistance offered is to the local area
  • Optional white rhino sanctuary visit: Imvelo have reintroduced these majestic animals to Hwange – a momentous achievement for the park. Tour the sanctuary headquarters and meet the Community Wildlife Protection scouts on duty that day. Spend time on foot with the rhino and the Cobra Rangers guarding them 24/7 – lots of photo opportunities and quality time to watch and enjoy white rhino in their new home on the Ngamo plains.
  • I’m leading the group: Join me on this exclusive trip – I’m fluent in English, Norwegian and leading African safaris where fun, laughter, and unforgettable encounters are the order of the day.
  • Straightforward logistics: Fly in and out of Victoria Falls International Airport, served by many major airlines
  • Shorter trip duration: I kept this one at 7 nights to make it easier for those with limited time but wanting maximum adventure
  • Spectacular value: Just look at what you get for the money!


  • Luxurious and Authentic Bush Camps with Full Board Hospitality: Bomani and Musango are two of the best places to stay in Zimbabwe and famous outside the country too
  • Diverse Safari Activities: Engage in game drives, walking safaris, water safaris and more for close encounters with Zimbabwe wildlife.
  • All internal flights included! No time wasted on long road transfers for us…flying between camps is part of the experience and this trip includes all of them – Victoria Falls to Hwange, Hwange to Lake Kariba and Lake Kariba back to Victoria Falls
  • Almost Everything Else: Internal flights, expert guiding, meals, drinks, airport transfers, in-camp amenities such as laundry, park fees, and conservation contributions included.
