Day 1
Arrive at Harare Airport and transfer to your light aircraft flight to Mana Pools, a World Heritage site due to its importance in preserving wildlife.
 
Check into your lodge in this remote conservation region on the banks of the Zambezi River, renowned for its large number of elephants, buffalo, hippo and eland, which congregate along the river.
Days 2 To 3
Today is devoted to game viewing in Mana Pools National Park, a World Heritage site due to its importance in preserving wildlife.
 
Mana means "four" in the local Shona Language, and refers to the four large lakes formed by the meandering Zambezi River at this point, where flood plains turn into a broad expanse of lakes after each rainy season. As the lakes gradually dry up many large animals visit in search of water, making it one of Africa's most renowned game-viewing regions, especially for elephants and buffalo. Mana Pools has the largest concentration of hippo and crocodiles in the region, and you can also hope to see lion, leopard, zebra, waterbuck, impala, kudu, baboon and a variety of other game. Birding is also outstanding, with species such as the African fish eagle, bee eaters, sunbirds, rollers and thrush.
 
Comprising 1,000 sq.miles (2,500 sq.km) of river frontage, islands, sandbanks and pools fringed by forests of mahogany, wild figs, ebonies and baobabs, this is one of the least developed national parks in Southern Africa.
Day 4
Transfer to the Mana Pools airstrip for your light aircraft flight via Kariba to your safari lodge in Hwange National Park, the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe.
 
Check in, settle in and relax in this remote wildlife area before enjoying a thrilling safari drive in an open top game viewing vehicle accompanied by a lodge ranger. With over 100 different species of mammals and quite amazing bird life, a marvellous wildlife experience is guaranteed.
 
Note: Local airport departure tax of approx $15 per person is payable locally.
Days 5 To 6
Today is devoted to game viewing in Hwange National Park, which is the size of Belgium.
 
Rise early to take advantage of the best game viewing conditions of the day, as you enjoy a thrilling open top game drive in Hwange National Park with your ranger. Covering a vast area of over 5,600 square miles (14,600 square kilometres) and in close proximity to the arid Kalahari desert, this remote wildlife sanctuary is renowned for its enormous population of elephants, as well as vast herds of buffalo, zebra and giraffe. It is home to many predators including lions, hyena and endangered wild dogs which are thriving in the region.
 
The rest of the morning is free to relax by the lodge swimming pool, before setting out again in the late afternoon for another game drive. Enjoy another spectacular African sunset and relax around an open fire, before dining under the stars.
Day 7
This morning we leave Hwange National Park and transfer to the airstrip for your light aircraft flight to Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River.
 
You will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel. Check in, settle in and relax whilst you catch your first glimpses of the magnificent Smoke That Thunders first discovered by Dr. David Livingstone and still one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The flow of water over the Victoria Falls is greatest during the wet months (February to June) but the falls are a magnificent sight at any time of year.
 
Note: Local airport departure tax of approx $15 per person is payable locally.
Day 8
Today we recommend exploring the mighty Victoria Falls and its rainforest on foot, with magnificent views (we suggest you take your own raincoat, as those on hire are often well used).
 
Afterwards participate in one of many local optional activities such as a helicopter flight over the falls or an elephant-back safari, or simply relax and enjoy the facilities of your hotel.
 
In the late afternoon we recommend an optional Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River to see hippos, crocodiles and the abundant bird life.
Days 9 To 10
At leisure to explore the small town of Victoria Falls or relax on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
  
Adrenalin seekers can participate in many adventure activities such as canoeing in the gentler rapids above the falls, abseiling or white water rafting in the turbulent gorge below the falls (grade 5), or watch bungi jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge!
Day 11
Transfer to Victoria Falls Airport for your flight home.
