Why book this trip

Choose from the endless variety of activities on offer at Victoria Falls, from bungee jumping and helicopter or microlight flights to exploring markets, guided walks and sunset boat cruises.

Observe wildlife undisturbed from your secret vantage point in an underground hide in Hwange, with sightings of Elephant, elephant everywhere. Be moved by the story of the ‘heartbeat of Hwange’ – a labour of love with 60 man-made waterholes pumping water from boreholes are the lifeblood of the park.

Day 1: Arrive Victoria Falls

On arrival at Victoria Falls airport you will be met by our local representative and driven to Pioneers Victoria Falls Hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure. Known also by its indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya 'the smoke that thunders', Victoria Falls is the largest waterfall in the world.

Days 2 - 3: Victoria Falls

At Victoria Falls, the earth splits open and swallows one of Africa’s greatest rivers, the mighty Zambezi, creating the largest sheet of falling water on earth. Boats cruise the tranquil water at sunset while the distant spray catches the fading light downstream.

Days 5 - 7: Hwange National Park

As Zimbabwe’s largest national park, Hwange has a sizeable reputation and has one of Africa’s last strongholds of endangered African wild dogs. The sight of hundreds, if not thousands of elephants and buffalos streaming towards you as you sit at a waterhole is indescribable.
