9 day affordable Hwange Nationalpark Safari & Victoria Falls



It would be hard to find a more reasonably priced tour than this that still offers a high quality, truly authentic African safari in wild, remote bush locations. In particular, during the July-October 2017 peak season it offers fantastic value for money. Hwange offers superb game viewing and the quality of the guiding is excellent. And Victoria Falls offers a range of activities in addition to the falls. Due to seasonal closure of Nehimba, Somalisa camp will be substituted in Dec- Feb.

Day 1-2: Arrive Victoria Falls and transfer to Bayete Lodge for 2 nights

On arrival in Victoria Falls you will be met and transferred to Bayete Lodge. This is a really good value guest house about 2.5 kms from the town centre. Family owned and operated it offers very personal service at an affordble price.

You will have this afternoon and the whole of the following day to relax and enjoy all that Victoria Falls has to offer.

Option: besides visiting the world famous falls, boat cruises on the Zambezi, village visits and scenic helicopter flights are just a few of the activities you can do here. And for the more active, there is white water rafting and canoeing trips. We can at additonal cost book any activities for you so do ask us for details.

Day 3-5: Transfer to Camelthorn Lodge near Hwange Park

Your African safari adventure begins today as you are collected this morning from your hotel and transferred to Camelthorn Lodge. This is about a 4 hour drive.

Option: There is the option of doing part of the journey on the unique Elephant Express but this will mean you arrive quite late in the day.

This Lodge is located just outside Hwange Park. It is near the remote southern section of the park & there is only one other lodge near by. This means there are very few other vehicles in the area making the game drives very peaceful & exclusive. It is also close to the superb Ngamo Plains- nicknamed the 'Little Serengeti' by the local guides. You will enjoy the next 3 days doing morning & afternoon game activities. These include game drives & walking safaris. In certain months there is also the chance to spend time in their look up hide overlooking a waterhole. During the dry season this offers some of the closest elephant encounters you will ever have! Cultural tours are also offered.

Day 6-8: Transfer to Nehimba Lodge in Hwange Park

Today you will transfer by road to Nehimba lodge in the wild and remote northern part of Hwange- this is a true African bush experience! It is about 4 hours drive.

Options: There is also again the great option of doing part of this transfer on the unique Elephant Express train. For the next 3 days enjoy morning & afternoon game activities which include game drives and walking safaris.

Please note that due to seasonal closure, from the 7 Dec 2017-31 Mar 2018 we will offer the superb Somalisa camp instead of Nehimba.

Day 9: Transfer to Victoria Falls

Today you will transfer back to Victoria Falls. It is about a 4 hour drive so if you are flying out today, an early start will be required.

Please note, that from the 7 Dec-31 March when we use Somalisa Camp instead of Nehimba, then we are able to offer a flight back instead of a road transfer at no extra cost!
