Go Back Enquire

Available from 1 JANUARY - 31 DECEMBER

Enjoy a quick 6 night tour to the famous Victoria Falls, Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe and the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia. Victoria Falls is one of the 7 wonders of the world and is definitely a must-see if you find yourself in the Southern end of the African continent.

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe's biggest reserve, home to a profusion of wildlife, including giraffe, lion, zebra and approximately 40 000 elephants. It provides sanctuary for all of the country's endangered species, including a population of wild dogs thought to be among the most sizeable surviving groups on the continent.

The Lower Zambezi National Park is the newest of Zambia's exceptional, undeveloped wildlife areas. And together with Zimbabwe's Mana Pools Reserve the area provides a massive transfronteir wildlife sanctuary. Most activities are concentrated along the Zambezi as this is what draws the animals and aside from game drives and walking safaris the area offers canoe trips and tiger fishing.

The river extends the length of the property and there are breathtaking views over the water with sightings of buffalo, elephant, hippo and crocodile. The philosophy of combining a tranquil, off the beaten track destination for guests with support of the local environment, culture and natural resources is our dream.
