Day 1: Victoria Falls
Arrive at Victoria Falls Airport where your Zimbabwean safari experience begins. Transfer to Gorges Lodge and spend the afternoon by the pool enjoying the amazing view.

Day 2: Victoria Falls to Hwange National Park
After a sumptuous breakfast you will be taken on a guided tour of Victoria Falls. After visiting the magnificent Falls, you will embark on a road transfer to Dete Railway Station where you will board the Elephant Express for your slow ride down the railway line to Camelthorn Lodge on the southeast Hwange National Park boundary. Lunch and drinks will be served on board. Enjoy a short game drive on the way to the lodge. After a 3 course dinner sit by the camp fire and your guide will present you with the Kids on Safari activity booklet and talk about the next few exciting days!

Day 3: Hwange National Park (South-East)
Join some of the local school children on their walk to school (between 3 and 5km). After spending time at the school head to an underground hide to observe wildlife and enjoy a game drive and sundowners before dinner.

Day 4: Hwange National Park (South-East)
A full day of wildlife focused activities, game drives and walks in the bush with an expert guide, who can spot the most animals.

Day 5: Hwange National Park (North West)
After an early morning game drive return to camp for a treasure hunt! Later board the Elephant Express again as you’ll journey to the north-west of Hwange National Park to Nehimba Lodge.

Day 6: Hwange National Park (North West)
After breakfast you will pack day packs and head out on a walk/ drive exploring the beautiful pans in this part of the park. Spend some time relaxing this afternoon by the swimming pool and continue working through the fun games in your activity booklet, such as finding words in a crossword puzzle and a quiz about African wild animals. Tonight, will be a traditional Zimbabwean 'braai' (barbecue) dinner.

Day 7: Hwange National Park (North West) Head out with your guide for game drives and walks, the north is distinctly different from the southern part in topography, habitats and wildlife which your guide will spend some time showing and explaining to the group. Stop off at the Nehimba Seeps for a mid-morning tea break. The seeps are an ancient source of water once used by the San bushmen and are still used today by elephant digging for water and minerals. Return to the lodge for a leisurely lunch and then siesta or perhaps relax by the lodge swimming pool, frequented by Hwange's thirsty herds during the dry season.

Day 8: Zambezi National Park
After a last walk in the Hwange wilderness, enjoy a hearty breakfast and then embark on your road transfer to Zambezi Sands. During your drive out of the park you will pass by the magnificent Mandavu Dam where you will stop to enjoy a mid-morning tea break while bird watching and game viewing. Zambezi Sands is built on the banks of the thundering wild waters of the Zambezi River, in western Zambezi National Park

Day 9: Zambezi National Park
Join a morning anti-poaching patrol near camp. Return to camp for a delicious brunch on the deck and then enjoy a relaxing few hours by your private splash pool. Try some fishing from the banks of the river near the lodge.

Day 10: Zambezi National Park
Today take a guided canoeing expedition down the mighty Zambezi River. We use stable, inflatable 2-man rubber canoes which are easy to manage. Some shallow rapids provide excitement without being dangerous! Stop off at one of our picturesque picnic spots along the way for a delicious packed lunch before a slow paddle back to the lodge. Once back in camp relax for an hour or two in your private splash pool watching the game and birdlife on the river’s edge. Later in the afternoon head out on a game drive within the park, stopping for evening drinks and nibbles on the river's edge to watch the sunset one last time. Back at the lodge, freshen up before enjoying a 3 course al fresco dinner.

Discount applies to children 12 and under (max 2 children per 2 adults travelling). This package is restricted to a minimum age of 7 years. Children under 12 years will be allowed on walking and canoeing activities at the discretion of the camp manager and guide. All children must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult at all times.
