|Safari Name||7-Days The Great Hwange Walking Safari|
Day 1 – Arrival and transfer to Hwange National Park
The safari adventure to Hwange National Park starts off in Victoria Falls, where guests are picked up and driven to the Main Camp Area of the park. On route your guide will give you a picnic lunch near one of the water points. Once in camp and everyone has seen the lay of the facilities it is off on a late afternoon game drive. On arrival back in camp in the evening the camp staff will have the camp fire going and it now that one gets the feeling of being in the wilds.
Day 2-3 – Walking & Game Drive Safari in Hwange National Park
The activities over the next two days 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.
Day 4 – Day Trip to Sinamathela – Inside Hwange National park
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. In the late afternoon after a long day in the vehicle, time permitting there will be an afternoon walk to one of the water points to see the animals coming down to drink or a game drive. 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 are busy preparing a tasty dinner for you.
Day 5-6 – Walks & Game Drives in the Park
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! This area is also one of the last strong holds for the endangered Black Rhino. For those of you who are up to it, a morning of tracking the Rhino on foot is a must! The area is home to lion, elephants, Rhino, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, waterbuck, giraffe, kudu, sable, warthog just to mention a few…

Today sadly the safari ends and so after breakfast transferred out of the park to your next destination.

As such, there is much to attract the traveler, from wildlife viewing and adrenalin adventures to delving into the history of the Zimbabwean people going back thousands of years.
Located in Southern Africa, Zimbabwe is landlocked and is surrounded by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the Southwest, Zambia to the Northwest, and Mozambique to the east and north. The Zambezi river forms the natural boundary with Zambia and when in full flood (February-April) the massive Victoria Falls on the river forms the world’s largest curtain of falling water. The Victoria Falls are a major tourist attraction.
