  • Shared tour
  • Small group
  • Family friendly

This is one package for nature and wildlife enthusiasts as it covers two of southern Africa`s best wildlife parks - the Hwange National Park and the Chobe National Park. This is in addition to the 7th natural wonder - the Victoria Falls.

DAY 1 Hwange National Park

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 we will 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 with breakfast.

DAY 2 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 we use any one of the many viewing platform that dot the park for lunches. We will be back at the lodge at around 16H00. 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 lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, impala, kudu, sable, eland, waterbuck, zebra, giraffe, baboon, warthog and a lot more. Dinner and overnight at the Hwange Safari Lodge with breakfast.

DAY 3 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 -n ow 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 with breakfast.

DAY 4 Hwange National Park - Victoria Falls

After breakfast transfer you will be transferred to Victoria Falls in air-conditioned vans - a two hours trip. After check-in we will head to the Victoria Falls, via the big baobab tree for the guided tour. The walk on this 2KM 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.

We will pass by the Open Curio Markets for your souvenir shopping. At 16H00 you will be transferred to the jetty for the relaxing Zambezi River sun set 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 with breakfast.

DAY 5 Chobe National Park (Botswana)

On this day you will be collected from your hotel at 07:30 hours for the full day safari in the Chobe National Park in Botswana. You do not have to wait until we cross the border into Botswana to start enjoying the game viewing as we will be driving though the Zambezi National Park for 70 km to the Botswana border.

Our safari starts 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. We will visit the upper Chobe River part that is not accessible by boats. This is where we get to see the shy predators (lions, hyena, cheetah and sometimes leopards) and at times on their kills.

We will leave the park at about 16:30hrs for the drive back to Victoria Falls in comfortable air conditioned mini buses.
