Day 1 - 8
Pretoria - Tofo, Inhambane - Vilanculos, Bilene - Mozambique, Kruger National Park, South Africa
From Pretoria we head north to the premier wildlife region; the Kruger National Park where we hope to spot the ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo – on the acacia-studded savannah's. We then cross the border into tropical Mozambique and head north to enjoy a few days relaxing at the rustic resorts of Bilene, Tofu and Vilanculos. These feature sandy beaches fringed with palm trees, a balmy climate and the azure and the warm Indian Ocean alive with marine life. A Dhow Safari – Magaruque Island snorkelling trip is included and many optional activities are on offer. Alternatively, simply relax in a hammock, take a long walk on the near-deserted bleached-white sand or feast on a seafood lunch.
Day 9 - 12
Masvingo - Bulawayo - Motobo National Park - Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
We cross into Zimbabwe and pause for a night at Masvingo to view the magnificent archaeological site of the Great Zimbabwe Ruins before heading to Zimbabwe’s second-biggest city, Bulawayo. Nearby is Matobo National Park which shelters ancient rock paintings and the last significant population of the endangered white rhino in Zimbabwe; both of which we can visit on an optional foot safari. Our next Big Game encounters are in Zimbabwe’s premier wildlife reserve, Hwange National Park, famous for its large concentration of elephant that congregates around the waterholes as well as rarer species like African wild dog.
Day 13 - 14
Hwange National Park - Victoria Falls
Leaving the wilderness of the Hwange National park, we make our way to Victoria Falls, where we have the opportunity to enjoy the spectacular ‘Falls’ themselves and the mighty Zambezi River. N.B We recommend that you stay a couple of days after this tour to experience the numerous adventure options on offer from bungy jumping and gorge-swinging, to white water rafting or a leisurely sunset cruise on the Zambezi River.
