Explore the two neighbouring wildlife regions of Chobe and Hwange, starting and ending in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe – 6 days.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe – The mighty Zambezi River plummets over the cliffs at Victoria Falls to create one of the most spectacular sheets of falling water in the world. After the rainy season, the spray generated from the falls can be seen from over 5km away, and the loud crashing of the water has earned this natural wonder the nickname, “the smoke that thunders”.
Kazuma Forest Reserve – Nestled within one of the world’s busiest elephant corridors, Kazuma Forest Reserve lies within two of Africa’s greatest wild parks: Chobe National Park and Hwange National Park. Woodland, forest, open plains and pans make up the very diverse habitat that is home to a variety of wildlife including lion, leopard, wildebeest, the rare sable, giraffe, buffalo and more.
Hwange National Park – Zimbabwe’s largest national park is an excellent destination for those wishing to encounter the Big Five on safari. The area is also a haven to the endangered and beautiful Painted Dog, boasting what’s thought to be the largest surviving groups in the world.
