We start this tour in Zimbabwe where you can see, hear and feel the spray from the magnificent Victoria Falls! You'll have time to explore the town and enjoy one of the many optional activities on offer in this unique area - take to the skies in a helicopter over the falls for fabulous views or microlight if you dare...
Our journey brings us to the shores of Lake Kariba. It is one of the world’s largest man-made lakes and a place of outstanding beauty. The lake is nested in mountains, guarded by enormous reserves of game and made beautiful and savage by sun and storm, as well as by earth and water. Our lodge is in a spectacular location with magnificent views over the islands and waters of Lake Kariba’s western side, and we'll enjoy a great game viewing sunset cruise whilst we are here.
Hwange National Park & Private Concession
Over the next two days we will have plenty of time to explore this vast wilderness of the Hwange National Park on game drives, and discover why this is one of Africa's finest havens for wildlife and home to great herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra and in particular hoards of giraffe. From here we head to a private concession where we partake in an open vehicle afternoon game drive and visit the Painted Dog Conservation Centre.
For the final safari part of our trip we travel southwards to the majestic Matobo Hills, an area of exquisite beauty, steeped in tribal history, ancient mystery and dramatic rock landscapes, where we take part in some rhino tracking and game drives. The national park has been given UNESCO World Heritage status and is home to both white and black rhinoceros, sable antelope and the world’s densest population of leopard.
Great Zimbabwe Ruins & Bushman Rock
As our journey nears the end we travel to the Great Zimbabwe Ruins located close to Masvingo. According to an age-old legend the ruins were built to replicate the palace of the Queen of Sheba in Jerusalem, and we have the opportunity to explore these ancient ruins during our time here. We then head towards Harare to the Bushman Rock Estate, operational since the mid 1900’s it is one of
the few estate wineries in the country, where we partake in a walk to the Bushman Rock and explore the ancient art adorned caves and granite kopjies. With high tea, a sundowner cruise and a wine tasting with a 3 course dinner, this is the perfect place to reflect on the end of the tour before we transfer to Harare.
