Tour Highlights of Chobe & Hwange Hideaway

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Although not the widest or highest waterfall in the world 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”. This is a bucket list destination on your Zimbabwe safari!

Kazuma Forest Reserve, Botswana

Nestled within one of the world’s busiest elephant corridors, Kazuma Forest Reserve lies between 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. The elephant sightings in Kazuma Forest reserve are phenomenal and a highlight of this leg on your Botswana safari

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe’s largest and oldest national park, Hwange National Park is an excellent destination for those wishing to encounter the Big Five on safari. Every year without fail this gem has treated visitors to truly magical game viewing experiences in the heart of the Zimbabwe bush. Hwange is famous for its massive elephant herds second only to Chobe in Botswana. There was no permanent water in Hwange but the installation of artificial water points – over 60 in number changed the numbers of elephant and other game significantly. Enjoy game drives, guided walks and more whilst on safari in Hwange.

Itinerary

Upon your arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be collected and transferred to your Vic Falls hotel accommodation. The afternoon is spent on a leisurely cruise along the Zambezi River. And after the sun sets, enjoy a delicious dinner at the Palm Restaurant in Victoria Falls.
Today, we make our way to Kasane, Botswana for the start of your Botswana safari. Enjoy a classic Chobe River Cruise in style with excellent river based game viewing and lunch. From Chobe National Park you will be transferred by road to your Botswana safari accommodation at Camp Kuzuma, Chobe in the Kazuma Forest Reserve. Expect phenomenal elephant sightings here.
Today is spent searching for African wildlife on the Camp Kuzuma concession deep in the heart of the Botswana bush. Enjoy an afternoon guided game walk in the Chobe region before setting off at sunset for a classic night game drive. As temperatures cool the wildlife gets more active, so expect great game viewing in the early evening in and around your camp at Kuzuma.
After a hearty breakfast at Camp Kuzuma, you are transferred to the Pandamatenga border post between Botswana and Zimbabwe.  We then continue our journey towards Northern Hwange and Nantwich Lodge. Here, you’ll spend two nights enjoying game drives and bush walks in Zimbabwe’s largest national park. This area of Hwange is particular known for its big cat population and sightings. During your stay, you can engage with the anti-poaching unit. Guests will learn what motivates these conservation warriors and can ask them any burning questions.
Enjoy your last breakfast at the lodge before we make our way back to Victoria Falls Airport.
