Zimbabwe is a country of contrasts: from the golden savannah and Big 5 game of Hwange National Park, you and your family will move to shimmering waters of Lake Kariba and then end your African vacation with action-packed days at Victoria Falls, one of the world’s most impressive and awe-inspiring waterfalls.
Your trip of a lifetime begins in Victoria Falls Town from where you are driven to The Hide, a luxurious safari camp in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s premier reserve. Your time here is spent on classic game drives that give you the chance to see Hwange’s huge elephant herds.
You and your loved ones will then fly by light aircraft to Lake Kariba, the world’s largest artificial dam that borders Matsudona National Park and Zambia. Dotted with boats and popular with anglers, Kariba is great fun. Your accommodation will be at Changa Safari Camp, an intimate lodge set right on the water’s edge, and a trip to Fothergill Island is part of your stay.
Bring your holiday to a thrilling close with three nights in Victoria Falls, where you will check into Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, which has plenty of activities to appeal to the whole family. A tour of the Falls – which are in full, thunderous flood between February and May – and an unforgettable elephant-back safari are included in your itinerary.
