Victoria Falls and Wildlife Safari

Start your adventure at the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. Known  locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), this is undoubtedly  one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles. Here, you will stay at  the charming Victoria Falls Hotel, where you will have the opportunity  to take advantage of nearby adventures such as an unforgettable  helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls, horse riding, elephant back  safaris, sunset cruises and hiking.


Next, you will venture to the  beautiful Hwange National Park. Renowned as an elephant stronghold,  Zimbabwe’s largest national park offers a variety of landscapes, from  desert sands and sparse woodland to grasslands and rocky outcrops.


Spend your days exploring your surrounds on game drives and walking safaris before retreating to the comforts of Somalisa Camp.


The  last leg of your adventure takes you to the remote destination of Mana  Pools National Park, which is tucked away within the middle of the  Zambezi Valley. Here, you will unwind at the superb Kanga Camp, which  offers exciting activities such as twice-daily game drives and  interpretive bush walks.


2 Nights Victoria Falls | 3 Nights Hwange National Park | 3 Nights Mana Pools National Park




Nights 1 - 2 Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

  • Victoria Falls  is one of the world’s greatest natural spectacles. Declared a World  Heritage Site, the Falls are the stuff of legends, romance and myth.

  • Today,  Victoria Falls rightly claims the title of Adrenaline Capital of  Africa, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports from  bungee jumping to canoeing and white water rafting.

  • Walk in the  footsteps of explorers of old as you make the pilgrimage to wonder at  the beauty and power of Victoria Falls, one of the world’s greatest  natural wonders. Set off accompanied by your &Beyond guide  and make the drive into the charming and historical town of Victoria  Falls. As you disembark, Feel the spray of the ‘Smoke That Thunders’ as  you set off to explore this magnificent World Heritage Site.

  • Led  by your guide, immerse yourself in the lush rainforest that has sprung  up around the falls as you make your way along the scenic paths.

  • Wonder  at the graceful Victoria Falls Bridge, constructed in 1905 and hear  about the history of the area. Gaze into the depths of the craggy Batoka  Gorge and weave your way along the edge of the falls, slowly zigzagging  towards their zenith.

  • Pause for a moment at the statue of David  Livingstone and try to image his wonder and exultation at first  glimpsing this unforgettable natural spectacle.

Nights 3 - 5 Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

  • Zimbabwe’s largest national park, the  elephant stronghold of Hwange is a game-rich area roughly the size of  the Bahamas that was once the royal hunting grounds of the Ndebele  warrior king Mzilikazi. Guests can explore a variety of landscapes, from  desert sands and sparse woodland to grasslands and rocky outcrops. Vast  herds of elephant and buffalo, gemsbok and packs of brown hyena can be  found in this pristine slice of wilderness, which also boasts one of the  largest surviving populations of wild dog.

  • Birds at Hwange are  an attraction to behold. With over 470 bird species, most of which are  native, the region is teeming with feathered inhabitants that can be  viewed during morning, afternoon and evening drives. Bird lovers will be  spoilt for choice when confronted with birdwatching opportunities.

  • Experience  Zimbabwe as the first explorers did, on foot and in awe of its  untouched nature and allure. Walks through the Hwange National Park are  allowed in private concessions and are an experience that is both  awe-inspiring and humbling, as you tread along the very paths animals  roam free on and observe their intimate lives from a careful distance.

Nights 6 - 8 Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

  • Situated in the middle of the Zambezi Valley, the Mana Pools National Park offers professionally guided canoe trails, affording the excitement of close up views of an abundance of wildlife along the banks of the Zambezi. This remote and untouched conservation area is renowned for offering high concentration of game.

  • Enjoy twice-daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles and interpretive bush walks, where you can learn to track wildlife with a professional guide. With a wide variety of prey species found within the park, the area is also home to a number of predators and game drives are likely to seek these out.

  • The Zambezi is inhabited by the sharp-toothed tiger fish, the fiercest game fish found in African inland waters, and Mana Pools is famed for some of the best tiger fishing spots on the continent. Keen anglers will thrill to the fight as they trawl to slow-moving river waters in search of this mighty adversary.

  • River cruises provide a new perspective on the area as you glide along quiet waterways, enjoying the opportunity to get up close to water birds and wildlife. Accompanied by a professional guide, glide with the current, stopping to gaze at elephants, hippos and crocodiles from a safe distance.
