Start off at Victoria Falls, where guests are picked up and driven in an air conditioned bus to the Main Camp Area of the park. On route your guide will give you a picnic lunch or drinks & snacks, depending on your arrival in Victoria Falls, near one of the water points. Late afternoon game drive. On arrival back in camp in the evening, the camp staff will have the camp fire going and it's now that one gets the feeling of being in the wilds.
The activities over the next full day will be centered on the water points. They are spaced out and so there is plenty to see, driving between them. The walking is very scenic, with some beautiful acacia woodland that at certain times of the year has the elephants shaking them for pods.
The walk offers an opportunity, not only for game viewing, but also a chance for you to explore some of the smaller more interesting aspects of the environment. You will spot a variety of animal spoors, and may even find yourselves engrossed in tracking down a particular species. The diversity of animals that come down to the water points is wonderful and it is always a pleasure to see the proud Sable antelope.
It will be another early start but today the camp will move to the Sinamatella area of the park, which is the north. This will be a day trip through the park with a packed lunch along the way.
This is a great drive as one crosses many different ecosystems as well as has the opportunity to visit a lot of waterholes on the way through the park. On arrival back in camp around sunset, you will be able to sit back and relax with sundowners and snacks.
Around the campfire is invariably where guests will gather to discuss the day’s events and plan for the morning. In the background your support staff and resident chef are busy preparing a three-course dinner for you. Day 4/5
The Sinamatella area of the park is a fantastic game driving and walking area. The next two days will follow along the lines of an early start with a light breakfast and then off by vehicle or on foot or a combination of the two, this depending on what has been heard during the night.
The walks are especially adventurous and you will always remember how exciting it is to be amongst the elephant on foot! For those of you who are up to it, and if we can find tracks, then a morning of tracking the Rhino on foot is a must!
Today the camping side of the safari ends and your guide will take you to Camp Hwange after a game drive or a walk in the morning. Over the next day and a half you will be able to sit in the log hide and watch the animals; this is especially exciting when the elephants come up close. You will be able to do some more walking and game drives as well as see some of the more nocturnal animal on a night drive.
The safari ends and so after breakfast you will be transferred out of the park and onto Victoria Falls for your next destination.
